Today my daughter Abby turns three years old. It’s amazing how fast the time has gone by since she was born… one thing’s for sure… I absolutely love her and can’t imagine life without her! Abby is a very outgoing little girl and it’s been fun over the last few months to talk with her as she is just starting to understand the world around her. I thought I would share a few Abby anecdotes (and some pictures) on her birthday…
This morning after Abby opened her (princess) gifts… I was sitting with and telling her about the significance of her birthday. I showed her a framed picture we have of Abby as a little baby (see below) and explained to her that she was born in Washington DC… she gave me a confused look and then said…. “washing hands or washing feet?”
Abby is going through a “why” phase right now… she’ll ask “why” every time you tell her something new… it would be really annoying if it weren’t so cute. About a week ago I was reading my paper and Abby came over to me and asked to make cookies (Abby loves to help prepare food and cook). I decided I would have a little fun and play a game with Abby…. so I turned it around and started asking her “why” just to see what would happen. Here’s how the conversation went…
ABBY: Daddy… can I make cookies?
ABBY: Cuz I want to.
ABBY: Cuz they taste good.
ABBY: Cuz they go down to my tummy and there yummy.
ABBY: Cuz they’re good and then my tummy gets big and I have babies.
