What A Character

Don't ask me what he's saying, I'm not sure myself. :)

Levi and I enjoyed shopping at Ross with Mama today. My favorite parts happen to be the decorating, dishes, and picture frames section. I pushed him in his stroller up and down the rows of pretty things and we enjoyed ourselves. Levi really liked the cute decorative airplanes and then the candles and kept saying "I want to smell that one!". He put a silly wooden carving with eyes and a nose in front of his face and he thought that it was very funny. He laughed at himself when he saw his reflection in all the huge mirrors and every time we past one he would say, "There's Levi!" or "There's Abigail!". I love toddler hood despite the "terrible two's"!

Split



It's been three years since I first started working on my splits. I'm an extremly unflexible person, it took a lot of work to be able to put my whole palms on the floor when I would bend over to touch my toes, but I have worked really hard on improving my flexibility and it's finally paid off! I can do the splits...well at least on the right side anyway (I'm still working on that;)

I'll post some more pictures of when I was really far off the floor but for now I'll just do the one. It doesn't look like I'm all the way down in the picture but there was a shadow. Not the best picture of me but I just wanted to share my joy. it's silly I know but I'm glad I'm finally down. ;P

Lily Katherine and Me~



Here's a picture of Lily Kate and me. I have some more but I want to fix the lighting on them and do some other stuff but I thought I would go ahead and post this one. She is so sweet! Every night when she gets a little fussy I like to rock her and sing to her. I think she likes songs where I sing high because she always gets really quiet. I have to sign off now!

Get Ready, Set, JUMP!




Yesterday when I was bored I went outside and took my camera to take some pictures. I thought it would be funny to take some pictures of us all jumping up in the air but Lydia and Gabe were still doing school so I didn't get any of them!:) I set my camera on 10 seconed and jumped up in the air when it was about to go off. I picked some of the decent ones. I got quite a few where I'm in mid air or just getting up in the air and vise versa. But I thought it would be something a little different to post about so here they are. There stupid but it was fun to take!;P

To a Very Sweet Girl on Her Birthday!



Today is Carrington's 10th Birthday! Why I have never thought to do a post on a family members birthday I don't know but I'm going to start doing it now. :) I hope you have a wonderful day Carrington and know that I've thought a lot about you today. You are one of my dearest and best friends. Even though we are five years apart I don't feel it at all! You are a very special girl and you are beautiful inside and out. You have so many talents and you are a joy to everyone around you. I don't know what I'd so without you! You are one of my dearest friends! I love you! Happy Birthday Sweet Preteen!

Happy Birthday Sweet Preteen!
Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Happy Birthday Sweet Preteen!

Tonights the night,
I've waited for,
Because your not a baby anymore,
You've turned into the prettiest girl I've ever seen!
Happy Birthday Sweet Preteen!

What happend to that funny face?
My little boyish-girl now wear's satin and lace.
I can't believe my eyes your just a preteen dream!
Happy Birthday Sweet Preteen!

When you were only three I was your play mother,
When you were only six we didn't like each other,
When you were ten we were the best play mates ever!

But since you've grown up your future is sewn up,
From now on your going to mine,
So if I should smile with sweet suprise,
It's just that you've grown up before my very eyes,
You've turned into the prettiest girl I've ever seen!

Happy Birthday Sweet Preteen!

We changed some of the words to this song to fit Carrington. She always called a "tomboy" a "boyish-girl".

Happy Birthday Carrington!

We went shopping today. Mama, Levi, Lily Katherine, and Me (Abigail) went shopping to Hobby Lobby, Publix, and Old navy. It didn't seem to take us extremely long thankfully!;). Levi, at two has always rode in the stroller in the store or in the basket. He walked and I held his hand in Old Navy today which was a new experience for me and not one I think I particularly enjoy.....to be honest he never wants to be in one place more than a second. :) He was very happy with his freedom and took full advantage of it. ;) I kept up with him though! He was very sweet and got a lot of smiles from the employees, I'm awfully glad they weren't frowns. I love him.~
