More! More!

Abby has learned some new words since I last saw her (in June): "More" and "No." She said both many times this weekend while she was here in Boston for her family's now-annual Labor Day Weekend visit to Boston. Nothing was ever enough, and she knew what she wanted (and what she didn't want). Suffice it to say, a great time was had.

Abby's an exhausting little girl now, but an endlessly fascinating (and fascinated) one. I loved watching her walk all over — my apartment, an open field, a playground, Farry & Barrah's apartment, the Pru and Copley malls, the Public Garden, Boston Common, the B.C. campus ... you name it, she was there exploring every nook and cranny. Abby's been to Boston before (most recently in January) but each time she comes, she's more aware of and curious about her surroundings. I could sit and watch her wander around for days and days. And that's pretty much what I did.

And, as if Mitzi and Jason didn't have enough to tire them out with chasing Abby around, they also got a little bit hooked on my Wii (Mitzi especially). Who knew they'd like it so much? It's safe to say that when the three of them left on Monday, we all wanted a little bit "more" time to spend together. Alas, real life beckons. Thankfully, we'll always have the pictures to remind us of the great time we had (click here to see them). Till their next visit ...
