You still talk like a New Yorker, your volume levels are Loud and Louder. The passion in your words, and the expressions of what you are needing to say, make it all worth every decibel above normal. You smile with your whole face. You love being talked to on your level, and when you talk...you expect the person/people you are talking to, to be paying attention. You eat slower than a turtle and are distracted by every moving thing at dinner. You take your time with things and don't like to be rushed. You are very particular about how things are placed, how clothes fit you, where Mommy puts things and what touches them.
You love to build things, you can build a tower out of cups, you can build a house out of marshmallows, you even built a building out of snow balls outside the other day. You enjoy putting puzzles together, playing Memory, PayDay, Monopoly. You are very creative and love making something out of nothing. You are an excellent student. You love K, and the different activities you do each day. I especially love when you come home and have a new song to sing with a cute little dance to go along with it (Hello Neighbor, Snowball fight, that silly Penguin one) It makes my day to see you so happy and excited to share with me.
Scooter is your Buddy, he is your little baby that you will try to carry around with you. You are protective of him and worry anytime something is wrong with him, or he gets loose (which is often) and hyperventilate until Mommy chases him down. You will then not let him out of your sight for the next 24 hrs, and put him in a choke hold when anyone goes near a door.
You really make Mommy and Daddy appreciate the little things with you. You do not show outward emotions, you are very stoic and strong like that. To get you to say I love you back to Mommy or Daddy is a very rare occasion. When you do say it, it is an amazing feeling. Not because you are repeating back words out of habit, but because for you to say it, you can tell you are really thinking about Loving us. I can almost see it in your eyes. You are very matter of fact with your words, you tell it like it is.
We were at the dentist last Friday and on our way home you and Bella were talking about the importance of flossing. Bella said it is SOOOO important to floss, and then you said very matter of fact "Well flossing's not more important than not killing someone" What? Where did that come from? You just had to "one up" Bella and let her know that there are more important things to worry about besides flossing.
Abigail you are such a sweet girl, you care so much about other people and will often worry about the ones you cannot help. You weigh 50lbs and love to show how strong you are. You make Mommy and Daddy stop and listen, you make us slow down, if even to just give you comfort in chaos. You my little lady, are one Incredible girl!
