Summer Time, Fun Time!

We continue to have a busy, but very fun summer. We seem to be thankfully staying away from anymore ear infections - and hope it continues. Abigail just keeps acting more grown-up all the time. Her favorite word seems to be "Appy" - which she will walk around saying. It seems to mean both "Happy" and "Abby". She is singing and dancing more and more and tries to imitate much of what we say. She is, unfortunately, having more crying fits and time outs, but we guess that comes as age two approaches.

She loves playing with other kids and has a smile that continues to melt our hearts. And, as I have said so many times before, we are just so grateful for her. With the wedding we have seen many people we don't normally see and they have been pleasantly surprised by how big Abigail is and how well she is doing.

I hope to one day soon get my hands on some wedding pictures, but this is the only I have - because I took it with my phone. While we were setting up my niece was pushing her brother around. During clean-up Abigail thought it would be fun!

Abigail is still loving her purses and hat and now loving the stroller and dolls. She is starting to call them babies.
We took a day trip to Payson for a picnic. We went to the Rim Country Museum and Zane Grey Cabin. It was lots of fun, and the weather was beautiful!! The above picture shows Abigail grinding corn at the museum.

Abigail has become quite attached to her Daddy lately!! It is very cute!! She has certain things she insists upon doing with just me or him (for some reason we can't do each other's jobs - like her nightly sippy cup of milk is almost always sitting with me, despite John's efforts to try and do it)
With how fast she fell asleep and how "out" she was for the drive home -- we figured she had had a great time!!

We had some cousins over for lunch and swimming. Abigail loves playing with her cousins.

She is still in love with helping in the kitchen - so we have to be even more careful when using the stove.

She can entertain herself with the funniest things.

We've been experimenting with little pig tails and such...her hair is definitely crazy afterwards, but we think it's gosh darn cute!!

She loves reading books, especially the ones that have flaps with pictures hiding behind. She has also recently been requesting "Are You My Mother?".

We have been enjoying swimming - both in her little pool and the community pool. She has gotten really good at kicking and the Monkey Walk. We are still working on using her arms and blowing bubbles, but she loves the water.

She is getting so big and it seems they just keep getting busier and busier as time goes on. We are really enjoying the stage our kids are in and I am looking forward to this one that Abby is in. Glad to see you are all well.
