One year check-up!

20 lbs. 30 ins. It was a tough visit with 6 shots, and with big bro and sis getting their flu shot too, but we did it! You're growing fast our little Abba!

Happy Birthday Dear Abigail!

Abigail, my little may-may, my sweet Abba, our sweet little Abby girl! Today you are one! I can't believe it. I can't believe I have a third, completely wonderful, totally delightful child! You are the sweetest icing on the cake, Abby! Everyone is always commenting on what a happy baby you are, and they are so right. You are the happiest! You love, love, love your daddy and your little face lights up whenever you see him. You love to laugh at and watch your brother and sister, and swat them away when you've had about enough of their shenanigans. You are always smiling and making others laugh and smile with you. I am incredibly grateful for you. Being your mommy fills my heart with bursting joy! Grow slow, sweet baby...

Stand up!

Abby, yesterday while playing on the floor in your brother and sis's room, you let go of a toy you we you using to balance and stood (unassisted) for a few seconds! We all exploded in cheer and clapping. At first, our excitement was a little scary for you but you caught on and clapped your hands and had the widest grin. You are doing it! You are growing up, you little toot!

Goodbye/Hello House!

Today is a BIG day! We sign papers on our new house. The house you will, more than likely, spend the rest is your childhood days in. This will be the house that  Abby will learn to walk and talk in. Owen and Paige, it'll be the house where you learn to ride your bikes, watch your first scary movie, have your first slumber party in. Tomorrow we say hello to our new home and I can't wait. I can't wait to see you guys run through it and explore.

Owen "no mom, girls have two butts."

Bataan 2015

Papaw, uncle Jon, and Katie did the half death march this year. Mama got a little bummed watching, wishing I'd got it together to join in, but it just wasn't happening. You guys sure did love finishing up the race with them. It was a great day and weekend! 

Spring Break 2015!

New Digs!

Abigail, tonight mommy's heart is a little heavy. We have decided it's time to move you to your crib in your own room. Up til now, you have slept right next to me. I could reach out and stroke your sweet fuzzy little head anytime. It also made nursing super easy. I'm gonna miss it. I'm sure you will be joining us every morning early to snuggle with us back in our bed so that should help me adjust to this new normal. I love you my sweet Abby May. I love you and will watch you sleep ALL night long;)

Big brother...

This morning while snuggling all 3 of my chickens in bed, Owen listed all the things he was going to teach his sister. It went something like this. "I'm gonna teach Abigail to... eat, sleep, open the blinds, go potty" and my favorite, "I'm gonna teach Abigail to sniff flowers".

Packing heat!

Pretty sure I could walk around all day, every day, with this baby attached to me. It's something I couldn't do a lot with O and P. It feels SOOO good! 

Friday, February 20, 2015


Here it is! In all its sharp little glory. I'm still a little shocked you got one this early. You haven't been extra fussy but for the past few weeks you have not been the champion sleeper I grew extremely fond of that first couple months of your life. Could be teething related, or you just know mama is right next to you ready to cater to your every need. Yes, I fully admit I'm a total sucker when it comes to you sweet Abby!

First food, First tooth!

What a night! Abby had her first taste of real food, mama found she has her first tooth coming in (bottom), and dads is having the 3rd annual burning of the Christmas tree. Owen and Paige, you guys were so excited to give Abigail her first bites! Pretty sure she wore more of the oatmeal than she ate but it sure was fun!

Yesterday was 'Everybody Gets Shots' Wednesday! Dada had to do some wrestling but it wasn't completely tragic. Eye of the tiger came on the radio right when we were called back. Talk about timing! Abby now has a low-grade fever that we suspect is related to the shots. Good thing baby girl gets a two month break from them and O and P get a 7 year break! Dada better start lifting some weights is all I gotta say!

Do you wanna build a snow man!

Owen and dada tested positive for strep yesterday and with today's snow, it only made sense that we all stay home. We built a snow man and plan on making snow ice cream (a first). Yay for snow days!

Roll over!

Abby, today you rolled from your belly to your back. It was during some tummy time, which you are NOT a fan. 

Friday, January 9, 2015


Abby, mama's maternity leave has flown by. We have a few more weeks left to do what we do. My heart is already aching for these long days just snuggled up to your warm, adorable little body.

On the day you were born..

We were excited, nervous, and curious to find out who had been growing in my belly. Nana, Granny, Pa, Aunt Julie, Ross, and Jalie were all there waiting too. It was a little rough because they scheduled us so late in the day. While waiting in the hospital room everyone laughed and joked. Mostly about weather you would be a boy or a girl. Once they got me into the room for the csection, I started to get a little nervous. They wouldn't let your daddy come in the room while they prepped me for surgery. While they were numbing me, they had a hard time getting the needle where they needed. I really wanted to yell for them to stop and get your daddy but I just bit my tongue and waited. Once that was all over, they brought your daddy in and wasted no time getting to it. I can remember just staring into your daddy's eyes and we both were trying to control our tears. The doctors and nurses talked about what they were doing and to one another about their day. I could feel my body being tugged but there was no pain. Once the doctor reached you she said "she's a little toe-head". SHE!! Your daddy and I cried a little more without holding back. Abigail May, you were really here!

The day before Abby!

Abby you were a scheduled c-section and on the 21st mama and dada went to the hospital to register and do some blood work. We also took granny and
Pa out to lunch. I remember being excited and still couldn't believe that I was going to have a baby. Oh, and we had NO IDEA if you were a girl or boy. Dada and I had a feeling though!!

My little lights!

The Christmas play at daycare you both had one line. "I'm the light of friendship" was your line Owen. When you first started rehearsing your line was "I'm the light of doy (joy;) but a little friend could not remember her line so your line was switched up. I was little bummed because I loved hearing you say "doy". "I'm the light that shines in your heart" was your line Paige. You both walked out into the audience, up onto the stage, and said your lines like little pros. It was a very proud mommy moment.
