We got a sicky on our hands.

For the past 2 days our Abby girl has been under the weather. She has a cough and a fever and just not herself. Julie had to pick her up from daycare around noon on Tuesday and she didn't go to daycare today. We have our fingers crossed that she will be able to go tomorrow, she didn't have a fever when she went to bed and tonight she was acting more like our normal crazy kid. As Julie posted on mamabeal earlier this week there is nothing worse then a sick kid. As a parent you feel helpless, especially when you take the kid to the doctor and they have no good advice other than "give her Tylenol." Plus when a kid is sick, they don't sleep well which means you don't sleep well and everyone is crabby in the morning. Luckily Abby seems to be feeling better which will mean more sleep and most important and happy healthy 15 month old running around our house again.

Gotta love that hat.
She loves buckets.

Fun New Pictures!

Here's some new pictures we've taken within the last few weeks. Abby is officially 15 months old now. Within the last few weeks she's become quite a hand full. I think she gets that from me (Julie). :)

Growing up!

We haven't updated the blog for a while so I figured I would do that today while I'm have the day off.

Abby is 15 months now and she's turned some new leaves. First of all, she's mimicking everythig we say. Not everything really sounds like words but if you listen closely and use your imagination, you can tell that she's trying to say just about everything.

Along with her mimicking, she is also learning different animal noises such as a horsey, pig, cow, sheep, snake, tiger and several more. It's fun to see her point to animals and associate them with the noise they make.

She has also taken up some art's and crafts activities. We recently bought her a little essel for her to use her color crayons on. She is slowly learning the colors and she seems to like purple the best.

Here is a little story which you'd probably find on "Kid's say the Darnedest things."

Now, obviously Abby still needs to be monitored while she's coloring so, Jason and I get in on the activites of coloring with her. Well, we were all sitting at the table and the crayons were strewn around Abby and Jason wanted to use the red crayon sitting right next to Abby.

Jason said, "I'm gonna snake this red from you ..."
Without skipping a beat, Abby said, "sssssssss!" With a big smile.

Kids say the Darndest things! How cute. We laughed hysterically.

We don't have many new pictures but we'll upload some more later.

I've been Tagged! I'm IT!!!

YEAH! I've been tagged. I'm "it"! So, I'm not 100% sure how this works but I think I have been designated to write 6 random things about myself and then tag 6 other people to write random things about themselves ...

Here goes!

#1 I have memorized at least 3 baby books and can recite any letter from the alphabet book "Dr. Seuss's ABC's."

#2 I snore REALLY loudly. I always deny it but in all honesty, there's been several times when I've been snoring so loudly I even have woken myself up. (my poor husband :) )

#3 My child is a Biter. It's true, she bites Jason about 1x per week.

#4 When I go for runs, I always run on the trail through the woods because it terrifies me. It sounds crazy but when you think you're going to be abducted, it's quite the motivator to keep running!

#5 The last time we vacuumed the house was ... I can' t remember.

#6 I rarely pick up Duke's (our dog's) poop down in the weeds but when I do, I ALWAYS have an inclination to throw it at one of our neighbor's windows.

OOOOH, that was FUN! Too bad we don't know very many bloggers that haven't been tagged. But, I will tag my Cousin Barbara!

Not a lot new in the world of the Beals, but we do have some new pictures and a video of Abby from the past few weeks.

Just a cute little smirk.

Doing some coloring.
