The Things Kids Do

Now that Abbi is talking so much, I've really been meaning to start writing down the cute and funny things she says.  But of course, I've been letting life get in the way, unfortunately.  I've made a resolution to change that, though!

Here are just a few that I have remembered over the past couple weeks.  I wish I would have written everything down sooner, because I know I've forgotten some!

*In the picture above - I was talking to Josh on the phone as he was on his way home from work.  I wasn't even paying attention to Abbi, but after I got up, I looked up and saw that she had been getting out all of her books and standing them up.  Crazy kids!

*I don't really get too angry in the car when I drive, but I admit that sometimes I get frustrated.  I guess one of my favorite things to say is "Come On People!" because the other day while I was driving, we were sitting at a stop light.  I wasn't saying anything - I hadn't even said anything about drivers or traffic that day, but out of the blue, Abbi says "Come On People!"  I look back at her and she just burst into laughter.  I couldn't help but laugh with her!  (And I guess I need to be careful what I say when I'm driving!)

*Speaking of driving, we were going through some construction one day, and I told Abbi that the traffic was yucky.  She immediately started saying "Ewww, stinky!"  I guess she associated "yucky" with her stinky diapers!

*When Josh is on his way home from work, he'll usually call.  Part of that phone call is putting the phone on speaker so that he can talk to Abbi.  One day, he asked her what she was doing, and she said "I make mess daddy!"  She is smart, because yes - she is good at making messes!!

*We've been trying to get her used to the idea of a baby and we tell her that there is a baby in mommy's belly.  Well, when I was in the shower, she went into her room and took out a basket full of socks.  It had every size, from newborn to her size.  When I got out of the shower, she brought me a pair of baby socks.  I told her those socks were to small for her and they were for a baby.  She walked up to me and held the socks to my belly and said "here baby brother!"  I could have just melted!

*We got home one afternoon, and Abbi said "I miss daddy."  Another melting moment!

soooo fun to hear the things she is saying! She sounds like she's a really good talker! I remember when Damon was younger and he repeated something while I was driving....except his was something like "you idiots"....hhmm....yes, I am the angry driver. :()
