August 14th, 2011 Well here we are...I'm wrapping up my last shift as a full-time dispatcher, just a few hours left as I start this entry (I'll post it when I get "home").  This week has been another crazy whirlwind.  Monday Abby had her 4 month check-up and she's looking super healthy! She weighed in at 14 pounds (50th percentile) and...
August 8, 2011 Well, last night marked the last full week that we will be in Rohnert Park.  It still hasn't completely hit me (but heck, neither has being a mom!)   Our house is a complete disaster with boxes and piles of stuff everywhere.  This past week Lynn's parents came for a few days to help us with some painting and a...
August 3, 2011 As if becoming parents wasn’t a big enough change for 2011, we are now embarking on another adventure of sorts.  We are re-locating to the Roseville/Sacramento area!  As most of you know, my parents are in Orangevale and my brother and his family in Roseville.  Lynn's parents are up in Grass Valley.   So our...
July 30, 2011 Abby is 4 months old today!Well, my first night back (2 nights ago, on the 28th) started out not too bad, and my co-workers organized a yummy dessert treat to help me cope with being back (chocolate!) I fed Abby right before I left for work and didn't shed a tear as I drove off for my first shift back to work.  Shortly after 6pm...
July 12, 2011 So when Abby was really little she spit up a TON so we were putting her in bibs all the time to reduce the number of wardrobe changes we'd have to do every day.  Then we put her on Meds for reflux and her spitting up improved greatly - to the point that I hardly put her in a bib.   But now over the past week I've...
July 7, 2011 Wow, we had quite the weekend!  For my very first 4th of July not working since I started at the Sheriff's Department we decided to spend an extended 5-day weekend visiting family.  But before we get to that, on June 30th Abby "turned" 3 months old! She is roughly 12 1/2 pounds and 23" long. On Friday we make the drive up...
June 30, 2011 I just posted a bunch of new videos on our You Tube channel....and here is one of them that shows what I was talking about a few entries ago about Abby going from 0-60 in just a few seconds. We took this today, on Abby's THREE month birthday ... this is after she kept waking up from her evening nap & refused to stay asleep, so...
June 27, 2011 Thought I'd share some nicknames we've started using for Abigail...I'm sure there are more but these are the ones off the top of my head!   Abby (duh!)AbsCrabby AbbyPoopersBubblesLovebugSnugglebugBugMunchkin
June 25, 2011 I'm starting this post with a disclaimer: I sometimes can't remember what I've actually wrote about already so I'm sorry if some things are repeated.  It is a blessing just to get a few minutes to write an update, I just don't have the time to read back over past posts to see what I wrote about already!  Sometimes I think...
June 23, 2011 People have asked how Scout is handling the new addition to the family.  So far he is pretty indifferent, but I don't think he cares for her much.  The first 5 weeks I'm sure he hated her.  We had Abby in our room sleeping in a co-sleeper.  We didn't think that we would sleep hard enough with a newborn that we...
