4 Months Old!!

I will say that I'm a little emotional writing this post. It could be just because she hasn't felt good lately and I'm running on little sleep. And that this is one of Stan's busiest work seasons and he has been gone alot. But I think it's really just sitting here and trying to figure out where has time gone? She's already 4 months old!! One thing that she has taught me is time is precious. Our time with her when she is awake is precious. Our time with her when she is asleep is precious. Away or together, time is precious. We'll never get these 4 months back that we've had with her, so I need to enjoy and soak up (and blog) every moment!

Here's her 4 month old pictures! Stan took the first two for me on the 19th, her 4 month birthday. But because he couldn't get her to smile, I tried to the next day as well. But, Little Miss doesn't smile at the camera, only when you put it down! Here's our best efforts of two days worth of trying!!

Stan tries.....


I try....still no real smile.





This one contains what we call "the lip." She gives you "the lip" when she wants to get her way. It works.

Mama came over yesterday to watch Abby for me while I got some things done. I went to Babies R Us, went to Target, got us all lunch, washed bottles, washed a load of clothes, dusted the TV and Stand, cleaned up the kitchen and put together her Exersaucer. It was wonderful!

Here's a picture we took during the day. I love her little tongue!

Mama was keeping my nephews on Saturday so she brought them with her. Right when they walked in, Drew picked up Abby's little dog and started playing with it. She thought it was so funny. I've only heard her laugh a couple of times. I've never seen her do this. It was so sweet! Drew gets all the credit. Ever since they left, I've been dancing around with this little dog and she just stares at me and looks at me like I'm crazy.

Besides her sweet little giggles, you can also hear Caden in the background talking about Luigi dying. We weren't paying attention to him, we probably should have been!
This one is shorter. Please don't get distracted by my manly laugh.

Caden doesn't want to go to school

Nana: "Caden, put your shoes on. You have to go to school."

Caden: "Buuuuuttt.....but I don't wanna go to school."
five minutes pass....no shoes on.

Nana: "Caden. Put your shoes on!"

Caden: "But, I'm not going to school. I'm gonna stay here."
five more minutes pass....no shoes on.

Nana: "Caden!!"

Caden: "I don't wanna go to school!!!"
Nana proceeds to help Caden put his shoes on.

Caden: "I'm just gonna call the Cops on you."

Nana: "Go ahead."

This was just to cute to not blog about it! Andrea says Caden says this all the time now. If he doesn't like it, he's gonna call the cops on you.

Happy Valentine's Day Mommy & Daddy!!!

"Here' s a little Valentine for you both!"

"I made it at school. It's my hand print, can you tell?? I was hiding my thumb, so you can really only see four fingers."

I feel in love with this little surprise when I picked her up from school on Friday. So, RIGHT to the refrigerator it went. Along with her January art project! :)

Before long, I'm gonna have to buy a bigger refrigerator to hold everything! :)

Smile for Daddy

No one can get Abby to smile like her daddy can!


She doesn't really smile in this video....but at least you can hear how her daddy performs to get her to smile. I love him so much! He's truly the funniest person I know!!!!

It's Official....

We've used our last "newborn" size diaper today...the one on the left.

Sunday Dress

Here are some pictures from this past Sunday of Abby in her Sunday dress. Although she looked precious, she didn't make it to the nursery nor did I make it to Big Church. Abs still didn't feel well and she decided that we would sit out in the atrium and see how loud she could cry. I think she loved the echoing factor.



I love her little stretches!!

Sunglasses



Sometimes when you lose your paci......


You just lean over and get it!


Thank you Miss Katy for the Sunglasses!!! We love them!!

The Talk

Please ignore the fact that Christmas has past and I still put her in her Christmas sleeper.

"Abby, I'm sorry but you can't go on any dates with boys until you are 30."

"I'm serious."

"You're funny Daddy!"

"I don't think the boys will think I'm funny."

Daddy's on another trip

What can I say Abby, it's Basketball season. He'll be home soon, I promise!!


If you look hard enough, you can see that she's trying to smile. :)

I love this one!!

Daddy, I think your little ladybug is looking for you!

Just had to post it

Here's Abby enjoying her last moment as being the newest baby on the block. She's being held by Russell, Jessica's dad, before baby Christopher was born.
