Seven Reasons why Abigail Ann is Awesome

It's only a FEW days after Abby's 7th birthday, and I am finally getting around to finishing up my post about "why Abby is Awesome."

Here is Abby when she was 3 months old.
Here she is on her first birthday!!

2.  Abby is awesome because she loves with her whole heart.  She loves her family, her friends, her animals... she is kind and gentle to all.

This is Abby on her first day of pre-school in College Station.  She was 18 months old.  Check out that new Minnie Mouse lunchbox!!
3.  Abby is awesome because she is so "un-dramatic".  When you live in a house with a bunch of girls, it is SO REFRESHING to have one who isn't a drama queen.  Abby isn't.  And for that we are so grateful!

Here's a picture of Abby at 2 years old.  Look at that bunny rabbit!!  She wanted to squeeze it SO BADLY.
Here is Abby at 3 years old, posing with a baby calf.  Are you seeing a theme here?  Abby loves animals.  She always has.
4.  Abby is awesome because she knows who she is.  She is comfortable in her own skin, and is OK being herself.

Here she is at Christmas time a time a few years ago, when she was 3 1/2 years old.

5.  Abby is awesome because she is so smart.  She isn't really "loud" about it, but if you can ever get her to talk to you, she will blow your socks off with all that she knows.

Here she is at age 5, the big "pre-school graduate".
6.  Abby is awesome because she is always ready to help.  She'll help me, she'll help her teachers, she'll help her Dad, she'll help her sisters... she is always ready with a smile and a pleasant attitude.

Here's Abby at age 5 1/2, dressed as a beautiful witch for Halloween.
Here she is last year on her birthday, holding one of the chicks that she asked for as a gift.
And, what did Miss Abby ask for as a gift this year?
You guessed it... a bunny!  Meet our newest family member, "Carrots".  I must say, he is pretty cute.  And, he's a really good bunny so far... no biting, no scratching, loves to be held... can't ask for much more than that.  

7.  That leads me to the final reason that Abby is awesome... she's awesome because she's mine.  She's one of the best things I've ever done!  Seeing her each day is a gift... she is like watching my heart walk around outside my body.  I thank God for her each and every day.

Happy Birthday, Abs.  I love you.  You're AWESOME!!!!

You know... I think we could put Abby and Brianna together and they would have or want every animal on earth... Brianna is an animal lover too....

Now... I read this often but never leave comments so I guess I am one of your "stalkers" but I want you to know that I do enjoy your blog.....

Take Care...
