Today I wanted to take some time after writing so much about what Zach is doing to write an update on Abby. She is growing so much and becoming so independent and yet loves to play with Daddy and I. She can take out her own toys and play with what she wants while Dave and I are doing our own thing. Like right now she is getting out her cars while Dave is browsing the internet and I am writing this blog post.

She is really starting to play with imagination. She loves to play with dolls now especially in her new doll house that Dave and I made her for Christmas. She also plays with her baby dolls and stuffed animals (especially during nap time and bed time in her bed). She likes to make the dolls talk to each other and asks will you play with me (doll to doll). She also likes to get them undressed and have them go swimming or taking baths. She then needs help to get their clothes back on. Oh why do they make it so difficult for a 3 year old to put skin tight clothing on a Barbie or princess doll.

Today she got out one of her “baby” toys. A puppy that you press different parts of its body and it says different things. I really love it when she presses it and it sneezes. She always says bless you to it. She will also answer its questions or do what it tells her to, like giving it a hug when it says, “Hug me”. She can follow directions very well when she wants to. Though, since she is a typical 3 year old, she seems to have trouble listening to Mommy and Daddy and doing what we ask like, brushing her teeth, getting her pajamas on, getting her coat on to go outside, and other important stuff that we need her to do. Sometimes it can be such a fight for her to do some things that she does everyday.

Anyways, Abby loves arts and crafts. She plays with play dough and loves using the cut outs and presses that she has gotten from previous birthdays. Abby also loves to draw and color and is getting very good at making circles and trying to draw objects instead of just scribbling. She also concentrates when she colors in coloring books to try and stay in the lines. She is getting much better at that. She also can spend a long time painting. Yesterday she spent about 45 minutes painting with her easel after making valentine hearts to hang up on the windows.

Abby is very much into the Disney movies, especially the princesses. I think her favorite is Ariel. She likes to sing like Ariel and loves to watch the movie or listen to the tape of the songs.

I know this was a long post and there are so many other things I can say about her because she does something new and wonderful every day. It is hard to pick what exactly to write about.
