Happy Birthday, Abigail!

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
Today is my Abigail's 2nd Birthday!

She is currently out to breakfast with Matthew. He has a little tradition where he likes to take the birthday child out to breakfast, just the two of them. It's really cute. She was so excited to go and even brought him his shoes. Although, I just got a text from him saying she wasn't sitting still. Well, that's our Abby, always on the move.

Already I am starting to see less and less baby in her and more and more little girl. She's been through more before the age of 2 than most people have in their lifetime. And yet, despite all the challenges, she has remained a happy, funny and smart little girl. 

She is such a blessing to our family. We all love her willful and spunky personality. As one of her doctor's remarked recently, "she's just her own person." So very true. She's a very confident and independent child and yet, she's very affectionate too. She loves giving hugs (nothing beats an Abby hug) and kisses. We have loved watching her grow and develop and can't wait to see her become the person God has intended her to be.

We love you, Abigail Elizabeth!
I feel like she look so grown up in this picture.

BUT--she knows her ABC's and most of her numbers!!
