And she loves spending time with her parents. Shopping with her dad -- because he will buy her whatever she wants! And doing hot yoga with her mom -- because she loves to spend time with me!

Happy Birthday Abby! You most certainly sound like the perfect daughter and you are beautiful and accomplished in so many ways... I think that's because you have great parents! :) I'm pretty sure you know that already though!

Happy belated birthday to Abby!! She sounds like such an amazing person and daughter. I hope and pray that I will have this kind of relationship with my daughter when she is this age.

Beautiful portraits. And her bay theme is exquisite. I'd love to see more pix!
