Abby's New Best Friend, "Nahny"

My little brother, Anthony, is visiting us for a couple days. They've become fast friends!

She was right next to me a minute ago!

Yesterday, when she found the notepad and pen that I accidentally left within reach, I let her play with it to see what she'd do with it. For the most part, she just scribbled on the pad. When she got bored, she scribbled on herself. She was totally supervised so she never even thought of the walls.

Today was a whole different ball game. I was in the kitchen washing dishes while Abby played in the cabinets. I suddenly realized she was no longer in the kitchen so I went looking for her and this is what I found! This is why we put childproof locks on the bathroom doors. Of course, they only help if I actually remember to lock them (which I usually do).

We were bored



















When all else fails, give her something to clean and she's happy.

Her First Crush

John's been visiting us this past week, and Abby's been completely smitten. She was shy for about a minute, but she hasn't left him alone since. She's constantly bringing him toys or dragging him to her room to play. She won't let him get more than 2 feet away from her.
