Better late than never! Little Miss Abigail is 11 months old already! This has been a big month for our girl. She's now pulling herself up, cruising, pointing, waving, making lots of new sounds, and following simple requests. It's so amazing to see her change and learn! She understands so much and I know she gets frustrated when she isn't able to communicate her wants with us. Abby has started signing "milk" and "all done", although not consistently. It's fun to see her do the signs though, especially when she does them on her own without me or Dave signing to her first. She has started sucking her thumb a lot more. It used to be something that she only did in her crib, but she learned that it makes her feel better and so whenever she's upset she grabs the nearest stuffed animal and has a little cuddle. It's absolutely adorable, but at the same time I wonder if she will be a thumb sucker well past babyhood!
We are really looking forward to Abby's first Christmas and then next month we will celebrate her first birthday! This year has really flown by!
