Ms. Fix It

Abigail has that fisher price musical chair. It is blue and has a little table connected and is slightly annoying. It is the perfect toy for her.. or any other toddler. Her wonderful godmother Catie got it for her. If you do not know what I am talking about it here is a picture. It looks like this but it is blue.

Anyway. I did a lousy job putting it together and the back comes off it quiet often. So today Abigail was standing on it and she takes the back off. I ddi not really notice it. But then I heard the tape (yeah my house is not child proofed) Somehow/where Abigail had found scotch tape and was using it to tape the back of the chair to the base of the chair.

Needless to say I took the tape away from her...but the thinking in this child is amazing. Just thought it was pretty cool and wanted to share.

Out of the mouth of babes...and other random info

Abigail went for her 15 month visit on Monday. SHe is 26.5 lbs...31.5 inches doing awesome. She is developing beautifully. She is functioning somewhere between 23-28 months according to the MD.

Abigail has had a major word burst since last weekend. She is talking up a storm...constantly acting like a chatterbox. It all started Friday afternoon when I came home from work and she was crying. She looked at me and said "I got owie" and yes she did . She had dislocated her elbow another trip to the ER and she is back to normal. But that sentence brought forth many more.

Some of the things she said are:

I got ball
I got owie
Juishe Pleashe
I want___ (many different things)
Help Me
Press the button
No Mine!!
No ball Memo

and the one that broke my heart. I kissed Abigail goodbye the other morning. She looked at me with sad eyes and said "NO go mama. Stay. Read" while handing me her book. It hurt so bad to leave her then.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and takes some time to remembher all that Martin Luther King jr did for our country!

"I got Owie"

That was Abigails first sentence. Which she said when I got home tonight. And yes she did. Abigail dislocated her elbow for the second time in the past 3 months. So she now has a 50% chance of doing it again.ARGH!!

So I got to spend Friday evening in the ER where Abigail SCREAMED when they "popped" it. But she is feeling a lot better now. Is actually sleeping.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.
