Abby's updates

Some notable Abby behavior from this week:

1. Abby has started "counting." When she's playing, you can hear her reciting "tee, fo, fie, sic." If you count with her, she can do one to ten. Clearly, she's gifted!

2. She has also started "singing." There isn't actually a tune, but if asked "Abby, can you sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star?" she'll say "Yup. Tinkle Ta. Tinkle Ta. Tinkle Ta." with some accompanying hand movements. She does mean versions of "A-B-C" "Head, Toe" and "Pider Down." We'll let you figure out what those are! ;)

3. She is getting a little bossy (don't know where she gets that from!). She told Brian to go back into the house when they were outside together last weekend. She has also started yelling at the cat when Georgia gets close to her toys- "No, Jo-Jo, No!" (I admit it sounds a bit like the way her parents occasionally scold her....)

4. She has taken to shutting herself in the pantry and then jumping out with a big smile on her face to say "Hi!" She likes saying "Hi!"
