Mom and I before the race.
This is a horrible pic of me! I have on no makeup and my eyes are closed!
But I love that Abby is pulling me away. She needs my attention 24/7!
She was so pumped up before the race.
- Stuart's grandma is home from the hospital. She is being kept comfortable. We went to visit her Saturday night and she was resting.
- Speaking of Saturday, it was Stu and I's 6 year anniversary. We went to hibachi and a movie. Did you know for 2 adults to go to a night movie it is $20.50? That is insane. We saw Tower Heist. It was good, but not $20 good. But we were both grateful for a date night!
Abby got her fall assessment at school. Some things I expected, some I was surprised by.
Needs Improvement: Knows First and Last Name (I don't think we have even told her what her last name is!), Verbalizes needs and wants, and Participates in imaginary play with friends.
Excels at: Holds Scissors correctly and achieves forward motion across paper (Her teacher actually told us that she is one of the best cutters in the class), draws a straight line, knows all her colors and knows all her shapes.
Teachers comments: "Abby is doing great! She surprises us still with how well-developed she is, and we will just continue to encourage her to verbalize more frequently and with more volume"
I hate Daylight Savings with a passion. There is nothing worse than leaving work when it is dark.
But Abby and Stu got to have this conversation one "night" when he picked her up at 5.
Abby: Daddy, can you get the moon for me?
Daddy: Well honey, it is pretty high. I don't know if I can reach it.
Abby: I can't reach it either. Do you have a ladder?
Daddy: I do have a ladder, but I don't think it will go that high.
Abby: You need a Minnie Mouse ladder.
Imagination my ass. Poor Abby is just to shy to talk in school!
