Dave and I had a first today. We had an hour long lunch today by ourselves, baby free! It was truly the first time in 8.5 months we've been by ourselves and not at work or with her sleeping in the next room. And it was strange.....but maybe we need to do that more often. I think people who have weekly parent dates don't work the hours we do. I feel like the time I get with her is so precious that I don't WANT to leave her any more than I have to. But I know my relationship with Dave is important as well. Oh, the guilt of a working mother.....
Look for pictures soon!

Abby has a TOOTH!! She's been a grumpy butt all day today, and I couldn't figure out why. So I, being a good comforting momma I am, take her to visit the grandparent's for a little while (hee hee!). And finally, as I'm going out the door to go to work, we do a tooth check, and THERE IT IS! A little tooth sticking out from the bottom. Yeah! And then came the tylenol.....
And SHE SAID MOMMA!! I have witnesses in case you don't believe me. She said it twice while crawling towards her dad. So she may be a little confused, but it's a word!
And while I'm thrilled and excited and all of those things, it makes me realize how she's not my little baby anymore. Lots of mixed emotions on my part today. At least the thought of her is making my ED shift tonight much more bearable.....

In other news, my grandmother has been ill for quite some time, and she's still in the hospital. If you are of a praying nature, she can use all the spare prayers you have. I'll spare everyone all the details, but she's having significant pain issues, persistent nausea and vomiting, and she's eating next to nothing. Because she's 87 years old, a feedings tube isn't a good option, but we all want her to be comfortable, and she says she isn't ready to die. So comfort (and an appetite!) for her, wisdom for the doctors, and peace for the family would all be appreciated!
And an extra special thanks to my sister, Tammy. When mom and dad (and therefore my nannies) left for Indiana this past week to be with Grandma, she competely rearranged her schedule so she could come take care of Abby. I can't express how thankful I am for her willingness to do that. Luckily, Dave and I had already scheduled vacation this week, so she's covered for now.
And, just for fun, we have rogue armadillo tearing up our yard! No one has actually seen said armadillo, but the grass is all torn up and pulled out, but there's no tunnels or holes like you would see with a mole. Just our yard an our next door neighbors. Apparently we have good grubs in our yard!! According to google, the only thing I can do is sprinkle hot pepper powder everywhere. Anybody else got any suggestions???
Here's a couple of latest pictures from this past week to leave you with a smile!

And we now have new sheets on the bed.
This was really the first time she's been waiting with her mouth open before I could get the spoon to her. Like I'm staring my poor child!
And, finally, here's one of her newest favorite things to do. This was the best money I think we've ever spent!

And from yesterday..... can you believe she's FIVE months old? I sure can't. This past weekend was one year from when we told our families we we're expecting, and now she's here and rolling and talking.....it's unbelievable. She amazes me every day, and I'm so thankful that I was chosen to be her mother.
And finally, in breaking news tonight, September 3rd....we have baby food!
