Abby often checks the mail with me. Well one day last month sometime, she checked it on a day when I got my weekly TIME magazine. She promptly grabbed the mag, ran for a lawn chair in the back yard and "read" the entire magazine. She was so engrossed that I had to grab the camera and document the moment.

She often chooses to listen to the news over music on the radio. And if she is trying to butter me up, she'll ask, "Wanna watch the news, Mama?" She can identify & name Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, whom she calls "Hillry Chicken." I wonder if our Secretary of State would find that as cute as I do. And for the record, I always correct her pronunciation.
