Ok, I can't help but notice the sudden increase of people making their blogs private. Am I just ignorant? Is there a reason for the increase? What should I know? Have you had weird things happening on public blogs? Comment or email me with why YOU have gone private. I am curious if there is something I am oblivious to :) heatherhimmer at gmail dot com.
Last week we went to the zoo for the first time with Abigail. She really liked it! She LOVED watching all the animals in the water. The harbor seals and the walrus were a big hit. This girl just loves everything about water.
She wouldn't take her eyes off of the seals swimming around
Pointing down into the shark tank
This was a BIG mama walrus. His name was ET, and he weighed over 3000 lbs.
And I thought I had a big butt...
She was really excited about all the activity going on in the water. We had to hold on tight so she wouldn't just dive right in!
Abigail loves looking at books. She'll bring me one after another and say "more" until I read it to her. She keeps herself pretty entertained just flipping through them by herself.
This is how I found her the other day. She had pulled books off the book shelf and formed a circle of books around herself. She was just "reading" one and then moving on to the next in her battalion of books.
I can't tell you how many times I have read "There's a Wocket in My Pocket" since she got it for her birthday. Charles and I find ourselves quoting it all the time. Anytime we see a bofa on the sofa or a geeling on the ceiling...
Yesterday, we bought Abigail her first pair of Nikes.
And she is STYLIN.
We found them and put them on her and she could stand SO much better in these. She is quite fond of them. When ever I go to take them off, she takes off from me. They are the first pair of shoes she will keep on her feet, and since fall is well on its way, and she is going to be walking any day now- I thought she NEEDED them.
When did my baby grow up on me?
Thank you Nike for making shoes that fit on her tiny, chubby little feet.
This one we tried to capture her reaction to one of her favorite things to do. She LOVES starfall.com. It is a website that teaches phonics and reading. One of her favorites is the letter "d" and the dancing doll. Her is a glimpse at her reaction.
