November 17, 2011 I am finally starting to feel like I can get more things done.  Of course this is coinciding with Abby going through a bit of separation anxiety, but we are working through it!  I have finally crossed a few "big" things off my to-do list.  Unfortunately I've barely started Christmas shopping, and usually I'm done...
November 9, 2011Yesterday my mom & I took Abby up the hill to visit my grandma.  She hadn't seen Abby since early July, so it was a long overdue visit!  Abby LOVED the dogs, and it sure seemed like the feeling was mutual!  The dogs were very curious, but were very good with Abby, sniffing her (and Lucky did lick her once)....
November 6, 2011 It has been a while since I've updated.  I've been really busy, but I can't really think of what we have been busy with besides "Life"! I can't believe Little Miss is 7 months old already! Abby has now had Brown Rice Cereal, Oatmeal, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, and Prunes....interestingly enough, so far the prunes have not done...
October 11, 2011 This is going to be a short entry...I came down with a cold so I'm not really feeling up to writing much.  We had decided to start Abby with some cereal when she got to 6 months.  At this point, they say that "solid" (aka mushy/soupy) food is still just for play, not nutrition, so we'll be continuing to breastfeed for a...
October 6, 2011 Well this week started out rough!  Abby had another bad night on Monday night that kept me up All. Night. Long. She & I got about 2 hours of sleep starting around 4 am. I had bought a massage off of Living Social (a "deal" site)and it was scheduled for Tuesday, so we went over to my mom's house so that I could nap. ...
September 30, 2011 It is hard to believe that 6 months ago Abby was born.  She is so giant compared to when she was teeny tinie and has developed so much in such a short amount of time.  I'm loving this "time" with Abby.  Every day she seems to change just a little bit.  Be-it sitting up stronger on her own or reaching more for...
September 27, 2011 I'm going to try and start using this blog to note cute things that Abby does that I don't want to forget.  So you may start seeing some really short entries. Every night, part of our bedtime routine I give Abby a massage.  I try to massage her temples but every time I go to do it, she turns her head to the left so I...
September 21, 2011 Just a quick update on Abby: Sunday night she gave us a present....a "first" I was really hoping we'd skip.  She pooped during bath-time.  Yuck! Tuesday she finally discovered how to roll belly to back & all of a sudden is rolling as if she's been doing it for months.  Video to come (of the rolling, not the...
September 17, 2011 Well, today marks our last day/night in Rohnert Park, definitely bitter sweet!  On the sweet side, we are looking forward to having weekends in Sacramento, without driving 2-3 hours on Fridays & Saturdays.  Also, Lynn will be able to work all day Friday so he won't have to get his hours in over the weekend….which...
August 19, 2011 Our move went rather well this past week…no major damage done or anything incredibly interesting to report….other than hiring a mover was the BEST decision we made!  I think I can speak for Lynn & myself that we are really happy with the apartment.  There is some major wasted space (the 2nd bathroom is probably the...
