*On the 9hr plan ride over here, there was a baby crying a few seats over from us. Abbie heard her crying and said “Relaaax, baby. Relax!”
*Abbie saw a child-sized rocking chair at my parents house and said “Oh! That looks like fun!”.
*The first time she heard thunder while we were back in the States she started yelling “Jets!! F-16!!”.
*She’s started saying “I go play, just for a minute.”
*She saw Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune and shouted “It’s a Tinkerbell!!”
*She’s learned to do “I love you” in sign language, where you hold up your pointer finger and pinky and stick out your thumb, so she does that a lot now. It’s funny to watch her because she concentrates really hard on getting her fingers the way she wants them to be and then gets so excited when she gets it. She likes to sign “I love you” to Mark on Skype when we talk to him.
*Abbie is a great backseat driver. When we’re riding in the car together, she often says “Be careful of cars momma. Be careful.”
*She loves to hug everything. Light poles, trees, water towers, cars. She’s always asking to hug things.
