Busy Day

This morning we all went to the parade in Maize, where I graduated high school. This was Abigail's first parade (she slept through most of it.)

Then we headed over to the fall festival with my parents and brother's family. Olivia and Izzy had such a good time together! It's been so fun watching their friendship develop over the years. I can't wait for Abigail to share those experiences with cousin Ivy (due in December.) It was also fun running into people from high school!

After that we headed to Olivia's friend, Madison's birthday party. Those two go crazy when they are together. Madison's mom has been my best friend since 8th grade. We were crazy too, but not as crazy as these two!

And I am completely exhausted. Whew. Is it bedtime yet?

A Day In The Life

We drew a lot this morning. Olivia wrote her alphabet without any help from me ( those darn Js.)

And I loved her little Froggy. Amazing to think that she hardly picked up a pencil until she was 5. I used to almost force her to draw.

There is a new iPhone app called keepy. You can store pictures of your children's artwork and mementos. And then share them with fans (grandparents, family, etc.) It's really neat!

And Abigail drew her first picture with a crayon instead of eating it. Hooray!

PS: Giveaway coming next week! The promo code will only be good for one week.

My Abigail

Oh Abigail. . .she keeps me on my toes. Of course, she probably does what most kids do, but is totally different from Olivia.

I woke up this morning to find I was raising a little beaver. Olivia never once chewed on her crib! No wonder she was so patient with me this morning!

I thought it was cute how Abigail was so excited for her bath so I snapped a picture. In mid snap, she decided to crawl into the tub. I threw down my phone and grabbed her before she went head first into the tub. Her upper body strength amazes me!

The other day, she found some soap and I saw that she had it. But I didn't rush right over because I figured she couldn't pump it. Geez, I think Olivia was three before she could! Oh, but Abigail can as she squirted soap in her mouth!! So, we now have cabinet locks (never needed them with Olivia.) Then there was the time she was playing with the water in the toilet!! Ew! I'm considering toilet locks now, but afraid Olivia won't be able to open it. So we keep the bathroom door shut now.

She tries to crawl up the gate on the stairs and I'm half afraid that she will be able to do it!

And, as I was writing this, she opened her dresser drawer and shut her fingers in it. Thank you, Abigail for showing me why all those safety items exist! Our house is going to turn into a padded room!!

P.S. Promise I'm not a bad mom! ;-). Just amazed at how my children can be so different!
