Breakfast in bed

Today Abi woke up, came to us to cuddle for a minute (yes, she's been in a big girl bed for a week now) and said she'd be right back. She went downstairs and brought us barbecue chips for a snack in bed. It was so sweet and awesome that she almost convinced me to open the bag of chips! :)
As we both went downstairs to get her a cup of milk that she poured into a cup herself(!), she explained to me that she tried to reach for the serial but it was too high even with the chair. Needless to say, I just finished re-organizing the pantry!:)
What a lovely day today. Even despite no nap today, Abi cheerfully helped me plant flowers, went shopping, and played in the backyard running with the sprinkler on and ate hot dogs.

Old couple...

This is something that I have to share! :-)
I just received a message from our friend who is watching Abi during the day.
This is how the conversation goes between Seth (4yr) and Abi almost 3:

Seth: " Go, go, go!"
Abi: " you don't know what you're doing!"
Seth:" just drive"
Abi: " no."
Seth: " I know what I'm doing just drive"
Abi: " fine"

That made my day!:)

Abi's 3rd Easter...

Yes, this year's Easter was all about the fun things, eggs, bunnies, crafts, family moments, and the biggest hit- chocolate treats! :).

Abi taking to her toys after a nap about bunny coming over to leave eggs in the backyard and more presents for her... :)

Thursday, April 5, 2012


After a bath and our regular bedtime routine, I put Abi to bed. She was tired today, so I made sure she's in bed by 8:15. When leaving she said: 'I got a question!'. I haven't heard her say that before, so I asked what question. She said: "I love you.."!
What a sweet end of the day.

She usually says: " look in my eyes" and when you look she says "I love you!". I Love when she does that out of nowhere.

Speaking of creativity.. Abi loves to paint and draw... Let me show you..

I'm attaching her first real painting she did with our friends for her daddy today:

The top right 'piece' looks like a bird to me. Artur can see a frog!?
Hmm. Definitely a bird!

Here's a drawing when she drew her first face with eyes and mouth.. This pic is just asking to be called some funny titles..
Presenting Abi's original drawing from December 18th, 2011 (2yrs,5 mths): "potato swimming with a whale'

Here's Abi's original drawing dated 1/18/2012. At first I didn't realize what it was but then I was blown away!

And check out Abi's easter eggs from earlier this week (4/2/12). I drew an oval and told her to draw her favorite things in it, but she started adding eyes, nose, ears, mouth and even 'pupa' (you can figure it out..:) )

We also made binoculars for Abi to help her 'hunt' for Easter eggs this coming Sunday. So fun!!

Typical Tuesday

Haven't blogged in a while.

I am just impressed with Abigail's ability to communicate with us and can't believe how quickly she is growing into a big girl. Not a little baby anymore.

Tonight she told me that she wants daddy to read to her tonight. She said: "I want daddy to put me to bed. You go and take a shower and then work in daddy's office."
She saw me once working from Art's office.. :)

Last Sunday we decided to have a picnic in our backyard and eat dinner outside on the blanket. We had so much fun eating, talking, tickling, hugging and laughing together. Art and I started playing volleyball, that Abi inflated (with the manual pump by herself, by the way!) and Abi sat on the blanket and said: "you guys play I will watch you here". :))

There are so many little precious moments and things that we take for granted or quickly forget. Time flies and I want to make a point to notate those little things somewhere - it may be as well on her blog..

I'll try to get better at this.
