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...
