Just a Few Things

Abby finally took some steps today!  The bribery?  Me!  I was cruel I guess because she was whining and chasing me down and so I stood her up, started her walking, and then scooted away.  She took about 3 steps before falling into my arms.  Does that count?  We tried again later with M&Ms and got one or two controlled steps out of her.  I guess I'm kind've pushing her to walk BEFORE we get to Grandma's house!

Her vocabulary is getting better as well.  Today she crawled to the fridge and said "milk" (well, not quite that clearly).  So add that to cracker, dada, ball, and clock and we've got a girl who mostly still whines to get what she wants.  But we love her!

I love this stage. Every day it seems they are learning new words and we still get excited about that. In contrast, Shelby talks SO MUCH we were begging her for 30 seconds of silence at dinner!
