Happy (Belated) Birthday, Abbie!

Well, I'm the mom of a two-year-old again! Abbie turned two on Sunday, though she's been "being two" as we say around here, for quite a few months! It's a challenging age, but really quite delightful, and I love watching how Abbie is becoming her own little person. And what a personality! She has a real sense of self - she walks into a room like she owns the place. She has easily earned the nicknames we've bestowed upon her (Drama Queen, Princess, Diva Baby, etc.). But I think that's all the more reason why everyone loves her! And she's a real character with quite a sense of humor. She even tries to tell knock-knock jokes like her big sisters! You should see her dance - she really boogies down! And to hear her sing "Jesus Loves Me" in her sweet little voice just melts your heart. She's incredibly loving and shares that love openly. She often asks Al and me to "prayf" (pray for) the people she loves. I can't wait to see what the future holds for our bright, adorable, beautiful baby!
