On November 30th, 2002, 11 days after her actual birthday, we celebrated Abby’s birthday with a party at her Aunt Christina and Uncle Mike’s new house. She got scared when everyone started singing “Happy Birthday” because all of a sudden she realized she was the center of attention. She had a fun time opening presents and she blew out her own candle on the Blue’s Clues cake that her mom baked for her.
In November 2002 Abby tried once again to ride the bike that her Poppy gave her. She had fun checking the tires and helping pump them up. She needed a little help from her “De” in order to get moving. She still doesn’t get the notion that she needs to move the pedals in order to move the bike herself.
