I am Annabel and I am 6 months old. I live in a house in Metairie with my Mama and Daddy. I have a white cat named Gracie, a black cat name Gromit and Leo – he’s an orange cat. People say he looks like me – strawberry blonde and PRECOCIOUS. That’s what my mama says I am PRECOCIOUS it means I am very very very smart!

I am so smart that I already have blocks. Mama made them for me. Daddy says mama is precocious – I guess she takes after me. I am holding the “C” up because I am thinking about cats. There is an “A” on one side and that is for Annabel, there is a “B” on one side and that is for Baby Belle and there is a “D” on one side and that is for Devaney – of course.
Devaney is my third name – I have four names on my birth certificate – 34 letters – because I am very important. Annabel Margaret Devaney Schleifstein. I have more letters than the alphabet. Schleifstein used to belong to my daddy and Devaney used to belong to my mama and Margaret was my grandmother’s but now they all belong to me – just like Annabel.
My mama used to write about me – long ago when I was very small. But, she spends too much time feeding me and changing my diaper so I have taken over the writing – I think I am much better than her… it is because I am PRECOCIOUS. Before mama – this blog used to belong to daddy – but he only wrote about boring things… not about me.
I have to go now – mama is trying to change my diaper – I wish she would just let me go around without one – like the cats. When I am bigger I shall just use the litter box and then I won’t need diapers anymore.

  • I was googling my daughter’s name today when I came across your blog. My daughter is also Annabel Margaret (same spelling)! I loved Annabel and Margaret is for my great-grandmother. My little girl just turned two. Small world.
