She can write her name...WOW!

While I was washing dishes today, Abigail went into my purse got a pen, went over to the printer got a piece of paper, sat down at the table and started to write. She loves to scribble on paper and recently what she has been scribbling has started to look like something. The other day she drew a balloon with a face and hair that look like her daddy, haha!!
So today while I was distracted doing dishes I was able to hear her spelling her name out, A...b...i...g...a...i...l, then she lifted up her paper and this is what I saw. Now I don't know what the normal age is to be able to spell out your name let alone write it and it be legible, but this totally wowed me. Abigail is 3 1/2, she loves letters. When ever we go somewhere and there is a letter she will either ask me what it is or she will tell me. I have sat with her before and written out her name for her but not in the last couple of days. She did this from her own memory. What a smart girl, Abigail is!!!
And just as a side note, I will admit that it helps knowing that her name is Abigail when you look at this paper, but still it is pretty darn neat!

Go Abigail! Her writing her name this early is a pretty big step! When I worked in daycares, they were a little older than she is when they started writing theirs. Every now and then you came across one her age that could do it! So, you have every reason to be proud! :) And so is her Auntie!

That is AWESOME. She is so clever. Miss M started writing hers too, but F has absolutely no interest whatsoever :).
