Christmas is almost here!

Wow it has been a very long time since my momma updated. She will get better she promises. This is the time of year that we think of family and she realized a lot of you haven't seen me or heard what I'm up to these days. I am now 3 1/2 and am a ton of fun. Like there was any doubt right? :) I love school and have my special friends that I love to hang out with. My teachers rock and have really gotten me to advance so I'm ready for preschool very soon. I'm still really into trains, cars, trucks, animals and books. My tastes there didn't change much just sort of advanced from the baby versions to toddler versions. I sort of get the whole Santa thing this year and actually sat with him though the picture wasn't very good. Momma and Daddy were very suprised that I went to him with no problems at all and just told him all I wanted. When I mentioned trains he pulled out his train and showed it to me and I was very impressed. We have been staying busy with preparing for Christmas and so far I have hung out with my aunts, uncles, and cousins and don't get super busy with gatherings until I go to Mammie's on Saturday and then Grandpa and Grandma Bird are coming to my house at some point. On Thursday I have my Holiday Party and Concert at school. This will be the first time I have been in a concert so this should be a lot of fun. Momma noticed that we have been practicing as I now sing songs a lot even if I don't know all the words. She will be sure to record it and see if she can upload it. In the meantime below is a slideshow of pictures of me with some of my favorite people.

My Amazing Aunt Abby

It has been a very long time since momma shared how I have been doing or any new pictures of me. I promise that update will be coming very soon but in this post I want to share my Aunt Abby with you. My Aunt Abby is amazing!!! I love her so much and she loves me even more. She had my beautiful cousin Lily on March 17th and then suffered a massive stroke on March 26th. The last few months have been very hard on our family but especially for my Aunt Abby. She has regained some feeling and movement in her left leg but her left arm is still not functioning. She can't spend her maternity leave holding and taking care of her precious Lily. Instead her days are filled with therapies to help her get a new sense of normal. On Monday she is having what we hope is her final surgery that will place her bone plate back on her skull and hopefully we can start focusing on the limbs again.

We are having a benefit for Aunt Abby on August 16th and hope to have a wonderful outpouring of support as my Aunt Abby deserves it. She is always the first in line to help out everyone else. When I was born I was much smaller than the doctors said I was so momma and dada didn't have the right size clothes for me. Who came to the rescue? My amazing Aunt Abby! She showed up with three huge bags of premie and newborn clothes, she cleaned out Wal-Mart, Target, and the Outlet stores! Momma and dada didn't have to worry and go shopping, instead they got to enjoy me. Even while I was in the hospital she and my Uncle Jeff suprised momma and dada with a parking pass so they didn't have the stress of paying the parking fees while spending time with me. My Aunt Abby is just so wonderful, thoughtful, amazing, kind, and loving. Do you get how much I love her? :) Below is the flyer for her benefit. If you could please share with anyone and everyone you know we are taking all the help we can get whether it is donations, food, money, or your time in helping us.

Thank you so much and know my Aunt Abby will appreciate it too!
