Dear Abigail,

Dear Abbyroo,

Wow you are growing up so fast. I have know this, and have acknowledged it several times in the past few months but it really hit me on Saturday. I went through all of your baby clothes and boxed them all up to give away, 6 boxes full. It was so sad, I just held some of your little clothes and thought of you wearing them, and it just made me smile. I have to admit though, I did save a full diaper box of some of the most special pieces of clothes that I hope to make a quilt out of in the next few years as we collect more special pieces of clothes.

I held your bonnet that you wore your first Sunday at church, the bonnet you wore when we had you dedicated, your sweet little dress that you wear on your first Easter, the sleep that was my favorite. As I went through them all to box up your daddy and I just talked about you already saying, remember when… remember when… You are 19 months old to the day and the time has absolutely flown by.

I just remember when you were so small and I had to do everything for you and I have just watched you turn into this little independent toddler, even little girl.

You are talking so much lately! You have always been a talker, but you will repeat whatever we say the best you can. You will come and kiss my belly each day and say “Wucas”. I can’t wait for you to feel the him kick, for you to meet him and share your sweet kisses with him. I know that you will be the best big sister. I also don’t quite know if you have figured out that “Wucas” is another baby coming to live with us.

You are also getting teeth like crazy now! You have gotten 13 teeth in the past 6 months! You have outgrown all your 18 month clothing, and wearing 24 months and even 2Ts. We took you to your 18 month peds appointment and you are in the 96% in height and 76% in weight. The Ped said that you are just perfect and even a little advanced for your age. You were most definitely showing off for him though showing him all your body parts, and saying your words. You love to show off those muscles, as we all know.

I love you so much Abby! You have a way to melt my heart everyday! You are the most special little girl in this world. I love you Roo!
