Crashing Hard

After a day out of eating lunch, shopping, and just generally enjoying our last week day together, Abby crashed! She fell asleep in my arms and I set her down expecting her to wake up, but she didnt even budge. Now that is good napping!

We have some great events coming up including an Easter Egg Hunt, pictures with the Easter Bunny and a circus, so look for pictures to come.

Ready to roll over....

Abby is so ready to roll over. I made her a little area on the floor today so that she could work on it. You can just see the concentration on her face as she tries. She gets about halfway over, then we pull her over on her stomach. She can roll back over onto her back on her own. Soon she should be able to do it all on her own. We are in trouble!

She played with her toys for hours.

Hitting the toys and seeing them move is so shocking!

I also discovered the black and white setting on the camera (thanks, Lindsay!), so there will be more of those to come. I am taking her 3 month pictures myself, hopefully will get them done this weekend, once the scratch on her face heals.

2 month checkup

Abby had her 2 month check-up today. She weighs 11 pounds and is 23 inches long. She is a great height and weight for her age and healthy as can be!

She also got her first set of shots - she is definitely like her momma that she does not like needles!! Daddy held her down while I looked away and she turned 4 shades of red and screamed extremely loud! But it is over and she doesnt have to go back for two more months!

We toured the child care facility on base, it is very nice and the people are even nicer. We still have a 3-4 month waiting period, but in the meantime our friend Justine will be watching her at the house. We did get her registered for drop-in-care though, where we can take her for a few hours if something came up. They are also open on Saturday nights, if we need a "date night". I think this will help her social skills as well.

Daddy's Day

I had a ton of errands to run today, so I left Ms. Abby home with her daddy. I get home and below are two things that he accomplished.

1. Hanging her name above the crib

2. Putting on the most boyish outfit we have (Texas Longhorns) and thinking that it looks good!

Abby and I are going to have to work on showing daddy that little girls are made of sugar and spice, not sports!

Bella's Fourth Birthday

My best friend Michelle's little girl, Bella, turned 4 this weekend. She had a princess party that Abby attended. It was Abby's first birthday party that she was invited to!

Here is Bella dressed as Cinderella and her cousin Katy.

Abby's Christening

Abby was christened at Trinity United Methodist Wednesday. My parents, Stuart's parents, his brothers and my cousin attended a private ceremony.

Here we are with the preacher. She has on a dress that my mom's friend made.

For the most part, she was good throughout the ceremony, but a few tears were shed!

Here is Abby with her proud papa!
