"Official" 6 month pics

As promised, here are Abby's "official" 6 months pictures that we had taken. She was much happier at first (the OU pictures) and a little more frustrated after I changed her clothes for the other. My favorites.....







Stay tuned for more stories and pictures from the farm......

Sunday Evening

Abby had her 6 month check up this past week. She's growing and developing right on track. She's 27.3 inches tall and 18.6 pounds, which puts her right around the 85th percentile. I took her today for some 6 month photos....it took a little bit of work to get good smiles out of her, but we finally got some precious ones. I'll post them soon.

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!

A Couple of Videos....

Abby's latest achievements...

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!

A Whole Lotta Info....




We started having dinner in her high chair. I think she looks so tiny it it, but she seems to like it!















And her 6 month photos, which I know you've all been waiting for.

She's now to the point that I can't keep her from eating the signs. And, truth be told, we actually took these on Oct. 4th. But I already had the signs made, and I figure I'll forget it by the time it matters!

She did it!

Hallelujah! At age 6 months and 5 days, Abby Elizabeth slept through the night! 9 whole hours straight. I think it's because we're using the big girl high chair for dinner now.

YEAH! Now, let's see if she'll do it again....
