New Developmental Milestones!

I wasn't sure up until now if I was going to be one of 'those' moms that blogs about everything their child. I have also been tempted to discuss topics other than Abbie, but decided that would probably not be a wise decision (mainly because I am not well educated in the topics and would just sound like a moron). Here are the topics that I have decided are off limits on this blog:

  • politics (GO VOTE, TUESDAY, NOV 4th!!!)

  • the Green movement (Method is my new favorite brand and not to mention California Baby, now if we could just find Seventh Generation and/or Nature's Babycare diapers in more stores in the Twin Cities, that'd be great)

  • how much working full time and going to school full time - along with the fact that Ed is still struggling with the function of his right hand (he was in a minor motorcycle accident a few weeks ago, but is ok!) - really is the pits

But I have decided that I will discuss in detail the highlights of potty training. Abbie took her first step in that direction and went peepee (ok, urinated) in her little potty for the first time last night! :-) Ed's response was, "Oh, what a perfect topic for a new blog entry." We clapped and cheered, but all she wanted to do was clean out her little potty because it was wet! She doesn't understand the concept of 'wiping' in this context! How funny!

Here are a few pictures of some other milestones that Abbie has reached over the past week or so.....

Abbie is 'reading' on her own....

and singing "Twinkle, Twinkle little star. How I wonder what you are?"

"Up above the world so high..."

What a cutie pie!
