We just enjoyed a 4 day visit from Abigail's Grandma Kathleen, who spent Thanksgiving with us. I am certainly lucky to have a wonderful mother-in-law and Abigail is fortunate to have her as a Grandma.
Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, was a big one for Abigail.
Even though she woke up at 5 o'clock, she checked her "sleeping bunny" alarm clock and realized it was not time to get up yet. So for 25 minutes she sang and told stories to herself. It was sweet to listen to from our bedroom across the hall. After 25 minutes, she got frustrated (no wonder- 25 minutes must be an eternity to a 24 month old!) so Larry waited with her until the bunny "woke up". She excitedly yelled "bunny awake!" and knew she could begin her day. This was the most successful she has been at getting up at the "right" time. (I cannot believe that 5:30 is now an acceptable and regular wake up time for us!)
She also used the potty in the morning and got to wear Elmo underpants until almost lunch time and didn't have any accidents.
She also ate cereal and milk, from a bowl, with a spoon, all by herself and learned to drink the milk out of the bowl without spilling it.
Abigail rounded out the afternoon with another trip to the potty and more time in underpants!
We are so proud of our girl!
