Abby-fix

Abby is saying so many words now - and she sometimes attempts to talk in complete thoughts or sentences. She will drop her head into her hands and say "Gosh" - which is her shortened version of hearing me say "Oh my gosh". It's cute!

She has done really well in the last month or so learning her body parts - elbow is one of her favorites, and it sounds the same as when she says "noodle". For those who haven't heard it, Abby actually yodels when she says certain words - noodle, elbow, color - pretty much anything that has an "L" in it.

She's also been learning the names of different animals, and some colors, too. She has a huge coloring book and a box of crayons - and that is her favorite pasttime right now. She will sit at the kitchen table for an hour or more and do nothing but color her book.

Her favorite foods right now seem to be macaroni and cheese, pizza, and peanut butter and jelly (note that the peanut butter and/or jelly do not need any sort of bread or biscuit - she just wants to lick it off her fingers).

I can't believe that November is already half over - I haven't even thought about Christmas. I guess I need to get started on that...

Check out my new MySpace page for Evolutions

It is a work in progress.

Update

So, I have worked at Evolutions now for two weeks and I am having a wonderful time! I really enjoy my job - and feel BUSY! I never really felt this way at Clarkson. Last week, for example, I had three tasks that I wanted to complete, and I only finished two of them. I know, coming into this week, that I have a big job waiting for me to accomplish and I am looking forward to it.

I am really enjoying working for Judy - she is very laid back and gives me a lot of freedom to do the things I think need done. She didn't really feel the need to proofread the job description that I was posting or any of the emails I have sent out. I offer for her to look at them, and she sometimes does, but seems just as happy to let me drive. I really enjoy that.

My new coworkers are fun to be around, and they're a wealth of new product knowledge for me to learn from. I learned more about photography from my CCC coworkers than I did in everything I ever read on my own time. I think that's cool!

Speaking of CCC, my friends Keith and Mandy are the proud new parents of a baby girl! I visited them yesterday and really enjoyed getting to see them! I still miss my friends at CCC, and would love to crash the managers meeting tomorrow, but Mike thinks it would be inappropriate...we'll see. I think it would be neat to see everyone, but I don't want to be in the way, either.
