Abby is growing and changing more every day now. It’s unbelievable. I don’t want to take my eyes off her, because I know she’s likely to do something brand new at any moment. She’s not quite crawling yet, but she is certainly mobile. She’s developed a bit of a steamroller technique in which she covers a good bit of ground quickly by rolling over and over on her side. She can inch along forward and back like a little worm, too. Plus, every now and then while trying to crawl, she’ll tuck one leg up under her bottom and start pushing up trying to sit herself up. All of this plus her first tooth this week is pretty amazing.
The coolest thing, though, is that tonight, for the first time ever, Abby played with us. Now, we play with her all the time, but tonight, we were all laying on the bed after we made it with our freshly cleaned sheets. Maryalice was on one side, I was on the other, and Abby was in between. She was as happy as I’ve ever seen her. She was rolling and laughing and playing like crazy. She would roll up to one of us, flirt and smile, start to jabber on, and then take off for the other one. All of this was punctuated, of course, by her trying to snag the cat, who kept jumping in the middle of our little circle.
I love my family. I really, really love my girls.
OH, and Abby got a new high chair today. Here’s a pic of us testing it out with some carrots!
