The Essential Abigail at 3 1/2


Things Abigail Says Frequently:
  • "I want you to be with me."
  • "I love you"
  • "I hurt myself" - The girl is very prone to owees.
  • "Why do we never..."
  • In a whiny voice: "But I wanna tell you something!" (Always in response to her being asked to do something she doesn't care to do.)
  • "Oh, I forgot." (When you ask her five minutes later if she did the previously requested task.)
  • Rolls her eyes with a smile and says: "Oh, man." (After you ask her again to do the previously requested task.)
  • "I am your service." (When she is committed to doing the previously requested task.)
  • When anyone asks her "How are you?", she will always respond with "Three!" (Her age.) We explained to her that people are asking her how she is and not how old she is and that she should tell them how she is doing, to which she replied: "Yeah, I know, but I like mine better."
  • "NATHAN!"
  • With her red hair, she often gets "You are so pretty" from total strangers. To that she replies in a monotone voice: "Yeah, I know."
  • nail things = finger nails
  • sea enemy = sea anemone
  • footsies = feet
  • toesies = toes

Things Abigail Does Frequently:
  • Always has 100+ (about) teeny, tiny toys in her hands.
  • Thinks that all guns shoot sleeping gas and just put you to sleep. (Thanks Batman!)
  • Makes up the silliest names for her toys, most of which we cannot pronounce. (Some we are able to pronounce are Glock-glock, Langolan Isabelle W.)
  • Literally takes two full days to clean her room if left unsupervised.
  • Does whatever Nathan does, especially if Nathan was just told not to do it. :-)
  • Consistently puts the wrong shoe on the wrong foot.
  • Does NOT like ice cream or mashed potatoes.
  • Loves vegetables raw. (Think carrots, broccoli, avocado.)
  • Still loves her pink bear most of all stuffed animals. Bear is still named "bear."
  • Lamby is still a favorite but has changed its name to "sheep" to copy a show called WordWorld.
  • Strawberry Shortcake is her favorite TV show.
  • After taking a bath, she sits on my lap and watches the water go down the drain.
  • Still listens to her birdie baby music mobile when she goes to sleep.
  • Always has a smile on her face when she wakes up in the morning.
  • LOVES music and baby toys (maybe because most of them make music?).
  • Her favorite colors are pink and purple. She sometimes likes the other colors and sometimes she doesn't. She'll let you know.
  • She's can easily but her toes in her mouth and hang upside down from the gymnastics bar portion of our swing set.
  • Loves shoes.
  • Dresses up quite fancily (see picture).
  • Master of emotions. (She can be happy, cry or be sad at any given second. She commands her expressions masterfully. What else would you expect from a baby who at 18 months of age practiced facial expressions in the oven door?)
