Who doesn't love dinner at the park!! :)

This pic was taken after almost an hour of swinging
And she's still as excited as ever

Dance til you're done

Miss Crystal had her dance recital this last week.  
It was just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. 
She listened so intensely to her teacher and was so proud to show us her fun dances.
I just love this little girl!!

Showing us her moves before dance

 Putting her shoes on...and of course her silly face
(she thinks she's sooo funny, 
so anytime we take a pic of her she always 
has to do a funny look before she will actually smile)

 And of course we cant forget Crystal's personal cheerleader...little miss Abigail
She LOVES watching Crystal
And will dance in the corner and clap and shout "Yay Keecaw!!" when the music stops.

Abigail's Belated Birthday

Miss Abigail's first birthday!!
It's hard to believe that a year has passed already!
Abby loved the special treatment and attention she was given

Especially when she realized 
she had a whole cake to herself :)

Here are a few things Abigail loves at one year

Her blanket. 
From the moment she wakes in the morning until night, it's either in the same room or dragging along side her. 
Anytime she spots it across the room, she lights up with a giggle and runs as fast as she can to it, then falls on top and lays there hugging it as though it was a long lost friend. 

Anytime music is playing (which is most of the day with these girls), she's hopping her little body up and down to the beat. If I ever pause a song midway, she'll take my finger, walk me to the player, and point to it with a "ma ma ba ma" 
 Swinging High, swinging Low...she loves it all.  Abby could swing for hours at the park and be the happiest little girl there.

Abigail makes it known that Crystal is her role model and best friend 
She LOVES following her around, playing with her, and wearing anything that's Crystals. 
Today I walked into the room and Abby had tried her best to put on Crystal's clothes...

I'm not going to lie...I was impressed!
  Anytime Abby wakes from her nap and Crystal's still sleeping, she will walk to Crystal's door, place her ear to it and start humming.  If I dont catch her in time...she quickly goes from humming, to quietly saying "cawna" (Crystal), to yelling "Cawna! hey wa wa!"
We love our little Abigail!!
