So, needless to say, tommy and I are exhausted...and the doctors kids will be getting VERY nice gifts for christmas from all the money he's made from our weekly appointments the last 3 months.
Luckily Abigail seems to be doing fine. Connor still has an ear infection. He's had 2 rounds of amoxicillin, 1 rocephin shot, and is now on another oral antibiotic. He also still seems to have a little wheezing from the bronchiolities , hopefully that will go away soon. I'm ready to have a healthy house!

She says 100s of words and repeat just about anything you say. We're trying to teach her a few French words too. She can string words together in sentences.
She's been singing alot of nursery rhymes lately too. Itzy bitty spider, i'm bringing home a baby bumblebee, Patty cake, rock-a-bye baby.
She can almost count to 10. She usually leaves out the number 4 for some reason.
She's quickly picking up her ABCs. She says most of them but will leave out a few here and there.
She's also really started to pretend play. She plays with her stuffed animals and baby dolls all the time. The other day I caught her teaching one of the dolls patty-cake. It was so precious.
She's VERY independent. I think the terrible 2s have started early. She's quick to tell you "Imma do it". And that she's in charge. She give us a run for our money. But timeouts seem to be working lately. She's gradually beginning to understand that she has to listen to us all the time.
She's growing up into such a big girl now. I look at her and then look at Connor and miss my little baby girl.

> I've been horrible at updating the blog lately. But life has been CRAZY lately. I'm very busy at work trying to get everything done before I leave on maternity leave. And being 39 weeks pregnant has slowed me down quite a bit. This pregnancy has been a little different than the first. I'm having lots of back pain, alot more swelling, and just more exhausted than I was with Abigail. I blame that on having to chase after a 16 month old and being able to just come home and lay on the couch.
> But anyway, on to the update on the "big girl". She has developed so much over the last few months.
> She's saying most 1 and 2 syllable words. Some come out a little different (like baffle for waffle). But her speech has progressed so much. She's such a parrot lately and tries to say everything we say.
> She started feeding herself with a spoon a few weeks ago. She does it every day at daycare but she seems to get aggravated at home when food drops off her spoon and then she gives up. I need to find out what type of spoons they use at daycare.
> Her sleeping habits have been HORRIBLE. When Tommy is home she's up at least twice a night and expects to be rocked back to sleep. For some reason when he's working she sleeps fine. I think she knows that daddy will take her out of her crib and rock her. We have to put a stop to that very soon!
> She got tubes put in her ears last week. I was hoping to avoid that whole thing but she kept getting ear infections that wouldn't go away.
> She has actually poo'd in the toilet three times. We're not potty training. But we do have a little potty in our bath room that she sits on every morning (with a diaper on) just to get used to the concept. The other day she said she needed to poo poo so Tommy hurried and brought her to the potty and she actually went in the potty. We were so proud of her. It's very early to start potty training so we're just going to let her decide when she wants to go at this point. We'll probably really start trying once she turns 2.
> She is such an amazing little girl and I dont know what we ever did without her. She's learning new things every day and we look forward to watching her grow up into an amazing young lady.

This isn't one of the 'firsts' that I wanted Abigail to experience so early on life. But, nonetheless, she broke her wrist while at daycare last Friday. So she'll be in a full cast for another 3 weeks.
They told us to keep the cast dry and clean. Haha...with a 14 month old?!? But she is doing great. She really hadn't seemed bothered by it at all. She had a splint and wrap on until we saw the orthopedic today and she hardly messed with that either. And she doesn't seem to be in any pain. She's certainly tough. I think I've cried more than she has.
We were planning a trip to the beach in august. But it looks like we'll probably have to cancel since she won't be able to do anything in the water. Oh well, at least its her left arm and right handed. And hopefully the cast will be off before the baby comes. We'll be praying for a quick recovery!

Are we there yet?!?
Being silly in the hotel room!
The first night there we just walked around the riverwalk and relaxed. The next morning we headed to SeaWorld! We had a two day pass so we were able to enjoy the park and the waterpark.
Riding the carousel in the Bay of Play. She had so much on that carousel. She was waving and blowing kisses and clapping! So adorable.
Picture with Cookie Monster. I thought she may be scared but she was fearless. She gave him high five and was actually holding his hand in this picture
Waiting to ride the carousel again. So excited
Giving high fives to Bert and Ernie! Again, she was fearless. She walked right up to them and gave them kisses.
Feeding the ducks!
In the Sesame Street portion of SeaWorld there was a little water park from toddlers. It was perfect for Abigail. They had little fountains and LOTS of sprinklers. She had a blast!
And lots of valve handles to turn. She had to go to each one and turn it.
"Follow me daddy! I'll show you. "
Running through the sprinklers with daddy! You can tell by the smile on her face that she was having a blast!
The next day we went back to SeaWorld and Abigail got to feed the dolphins. She was pretty interested in them and liked THROWING the fish at them rather than in their mouths.
This is the best picture I was able to get. They all came out blurry for some reason. Watching all the fish and sharks swim around.
"Come see Mr. Fishy Fishy"
Riding the carousel with Daddy this time.
Then she had to ride one last time with mommy.
Our last day there we went to the zoo. It was HOT! There was very little breeze so went through the zoo quickly and then went back to the hotel to take a nap.
