January 18, 2012 I just remembered we had a first last week!  Lynn was bringing Abby into the bathroom for her bath after taking off her diaper and she peed on him! I thought it was pretty funny :-)
  January 16, 2012 Part of our bed-time routine since Abby was around 3 months old is we play some music while I give her a massage (lucky girl!)  Well, now that she is SO mobile (rolling, crawling, and standing up) the massage is very very very short. But we still play the same few songs on her musical bear that her Grandma &...
January 3, 2012 Here are the Photo Books I made for the Grandparents & Great-Grandmothers for Christmas. I had been wanting to do a book for my Grandmother with all the Great-Grandchildren for quite some time (actually before Christams 2010) I just didn't have the time. With not working full time, I was able to carve out the time for the book...
December 31, 2011 Wow, what a year it has been for our family!  I was thinking the other night about "life stressors" and how many we have had this year.  I think we are coping pretty well with all of our life changes:   ~Had a baby~I quit my job (for all intents & purposes, I still work 20 hours a month!)~Lynn started a full-...
December 30, 2011 Christmas was a blast. I'm trying to get through all the pictures but it is taking a while. I took a grand total of 597 pictures plus the ones I'm going through from the grandmothers and my aunt. I've chosen my favorites and now I'm in the process of editing, cropping, and collaging (I think I might have made up a new word) the...
December 19, 2011 Miss Abby had quite the weekend! The three of us went to Sonoma County on Saturday. We were out to lunch with some friends and Abby was gnawing on the teething necklace I wear. I went to change her diaper and found a tooth! No, not in the diaper (lol), but I happened to see some white in her mouth. After I washed my hands I...
December 15, 2011 Yes, you get TWO posts today; three in just two days - how lucky are you? Couple of thoughts I wanted to jot down: 1) I can no longer count on one hand the number of times Abby has pooped in the tub. We've gotten over the "novelty" of it and given her digestive "issues" I actually looking forward to bath time as a possible time...
December 15, 2011 Okay, I'll admit it, I haven't made any more food for Abby. Between shopping for Christmas presents, trying to keep the apartment at least kind of clean & straightened up (you know, organized clutter), playing with Abby, working (Elegant Gowns, bookkeeping), completing tasks for my background investigation, keeping up-to-date...
  December 14, 2011 Today my mom & I were in a restaurant for a bite to eat. Abby was being her normal adorable self. A lady came over at one point to tell us how adorable she is (duh!)  But the really sweet thing is that she said that seeing Abby really made her day, especially when Abby smiled at her.  That just warmed my...
