you tube

I don't know how to put all the video's from here on you tube, I'm guessing there's a way to go there and see everything I've posted lately, I put a bunch on yesterday, lots of her when she was smaller.

Abbie and I stayed home today. No one was sick we just didn't want to go out. After her third fit IN A ROW I gave up and called in sick. I feel bad because it looks like it was slammed at work, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. We had a very busy and long weekend and I think she just needed to do nothing. Life is rough when you are 3 ;)

We went to the pumpkin patch last weekend, no white pumpkins so we are still searching, but we did get a couple of them anyway. Completely forgot a camera, we'll go again this weekend and take pictures.

Oh so I was just messing with the you tube, if you just search for lovemyabbie it brings up what I posted. Harmonica playing, fit throwing, singing, playing Abbie.

Sorry for the pathetic post, have fun.

odds & ends

Abbie’s personality is shining through lately and there is so much of me in her it’s not even funny! Good and bad, it’s all there. The other day Rick and I were being silly in the car and from the back seat we hear “you people are making me crazy” and she said it exactly the way I said it to her. She’s smart when she wants to be too. I can remember when she was a baby if she didn’t want to do something it wasn’t going to happen, she never held a bottle and it made me crazy (guess that’s where she gets that line). I didn’t mind feeding her and holding it for her, but I could tell by the glint in her eye she was just not holding it, she didn’t feel like it and knew she didn’t have to. She could hold onto my earrings, her toys, anything else she wanted to put in her mouth, but not the bottle. Why bother.

Now she’s all in charge, of everything. We went to a neighborhood thing on Sunday afternoon. There was little boy who was according to Abbie misbehaving. He was climbing on a box covering what I think was electrical stuff. Abbie wasn’t supposed to play on it and he wouldn’t come down when she told him to. She came over to me and said Mommy he’s going to die playing on that thing (that she did not get from me, not sure where, but not me) and I about fell over laughing. Sometimes she’s just so matter of fact about what she says and does.

Mom’s dog is up for a visit and I guess we’d forgotten to feed her or something, anyway she was making noises and all of the sudden Abbie goes “what is wrong with this dang dog”, yep, me again and again I almost fell over.

Here’s the worst example from the last week. I wanted to pick up donuts for a friends birthday and confused the heck out of Rick trying to drive through and so we were not being friendly, not fighting, but almost. So from the back seat we hear “YOU QUIT THAT FIGHTING RIGHT NOW OR I’M GOING TO SPIT ON YOU” No one spit’s on Abbie, lets just get that out there right now, but when she’s mad she does this huffing thing with her mouth and sometimes spit comes out so we’ve had to say more than once we do NOT spit on people, so I guess she thought that would be our punishment. It’s a good thing she couldn’t see our faces because we just lost it.

Anyway, for now that’s the odds & ends I can think of, but I’m sure there’s more. She’s such a old person in a little girls body.
