Here is Abby in the coat she loves to wear anytime. Both Peter and Abby have been asking me to take their pictures lately. Peter asked me to take his picture with his trains. He arranged all the trains he wanted to be in the picture with him. There is seriously no slow down with his love of trains. He has several new train voices and train whistles. He knows which train makes which noise. I thought he was just making these up until I noticed he was doing each whistle correctly. Thomas says Peep peep, gordon says, poop peep poop, Toby says ding ding, and on and on...
Abby was loving her new hat from Grandma, as were all the people we saw at Trader Joe's that day. She was also wearing her sunglasses and coat. She loves to glam it up, she also appreciates attention from strangers.
Here is our first sleepover party (they really didn't stay all night, but I told them it was to get everyone to go to sleep).
Here is Abby sporting braids. She loves to look pretty, unless she doesn't.

Bunny Shoes

So here is Abby and her bunny shoes. Which, if you can't tell by the picture are the cutest shoes ever. The only issue she has, is that she can't walk on her tip toes in these shoes. At the beginning of the video she is asking for me to take her picture "please." I think this video captures the early signs Abby is showing of being two (March 1st). And, yes she is saying the shoe hurts (she has a burn on one foot) and yet she still wants to wear the shoes.
She is quite fond of saying No. She is usually quite polite, but is a little confused about please and thank you. For example is I give her an Orange (current favorite food) she will say, "welcome"
I say, "say thank you."
She says"welcome."
"Say thank you"
This can go on and on until I give up.

Peter is a funny boy. Lately he has been saying; "you are my best Mommy in the whole world." I wondered where he even picked this up until yesterday when I realized I sometimes tell him he is "my favorite little boy in the whole world."

I am hesitant to share this next Peter moment, but I will. The other day I was cleaning up the living room and Peter got very excited and said, "Is Daddy coming home? Will he be here any minute?" It was like 11am, and I said, "No, Daddy is not coming home." Then he said, "Who is coming over then?" Yeah, thanks buddy.
