I finally got some pictures scanned. The first two are her "first" school pictures. My pretty girl just smiled away. As cute as they are tho and I didn't get any larger then the 5 by 7 sizes cuz if you look closely my baby has a big boogie protruding from her left nare. I'm sure these shots will haunt her some day :)

Pretty girl :)
The last 3 shots are from her first Pi*ture People photo shoot. I have a few more shots but they didn't scan.

This is my favorite:)

Love this one two! The only one she smiled for.

I can't believe another week has almost gone by. I'm hoping to do some fun Halloween stuff with Abby this weekend :)

Yay Mama :)

My girl is still just so impressed with our pumpkin. (See below post) She won't let me put it outside so it is sitting on our end table. She is still standing in front of it saying, "Yay Mama". This morning too :) Good times!

Don't know where the time goes these days but there is definitely never enough of it. I don't have any pictures from this week because my camera is at my brothers. Here's a smattering of random pictures that (I think) have never been on the blog. I'll do some Abby bullets at the end :) Peek a Boo!
Just looking cute :0

That would be prunes! Nope she didn't eat em but she did frost her corn on the cob with them :)

I love this outfit on her :)

Ni Ni (In Mamas bed these days)

Where's my Abba?

She loves to rock.
Umbrella girl.
She's not happy here.

Mitten Mania
And cont....
YEP! She's a lady of leisure:)

The End :)
Abby Bullets!
-She loves School! She says YAY school when we pull up and happily runs right in :) I'm happy with them as well with only a few minor irritations. IE they don't use bibs when they serve things like spaghetti or raviolis.
-She still loves her babies. The other morning she came into the bathroom where I was getting ready for work, She had her baby in a doll carrier and had covered the whole thing with a baby blanket. She set it down gently then looked at me and put her fingers to her lips and said SHHHHH. I whispered, "Is your baby sleeping?" She put her fingers to her lips again and said SHHHHH :)
-This morning we decorated our pumpkin. I found a Mr Potato Head pumpkin kit and we went to town. Once we were done Abby looked at me and said, "Good girl Mama" then she clapped and cheered saying, "YaY Mama" over and over for a few minutes :)
-Ever since she had the croup she has been sleeping with me. I can't get her to go to bed in her crib. She has no problem napping in there but at night it's Mama's bed.
-Another new thing as of late, When she wants me to play with her she sits down and pats the carpet next to her and says, "Sit down Mama".
-She loves music. She sings now. Her favorites are the ABC song, Row Row Row boat (as she calls it) and Iyayiyiyo (Old Macdonald). She likes to dance too :)
-I swear she is so smart. She loves puzzles and is really good at them. She loves books too.
-She's getting really good at drinking out of a regular cup.
-She's going to be a bumblebee for Halloween:)
-I took her today and had her pictures done by the "Pict*re People". They got some cute shots even though their subject was a little less then cooperative. I will get them scanned to post soon.
-Speaking of pictures, I need to scan her first school (daycare) picture as well. It turned out cute but she has a nice boogie coming out of her left nare.
-My baby is going to be TWO next month! Can you believe it??
-Finally a late but huge Congratulations to Shannon for the unexpected arrival of her daughter Elena. If you haven't already, go check out all of the cuteness!!!

Been a little while

Long time no blog. Abby's croup turned into bronchiolitis and then moved on to Mommy in the form of bronchitis. Thanks to Uncle Chris and a round of antibiotics we are both on the mend. Little girl ended up missing 5 days of school (daycare) But thanks to Meema, Mommy only missed two days of work. Unfortunately Mommy has to work with her bugs attacking so I have been pretty beat at night and thus no energy for blogging. To make up for our absence I have posted lots of pictures and will do a catch up post soon.

Last weekend we went to the fall festival. Abby had a great time. We met Uncle Pete, Aunt Annetta and Cousin Josh there. Auntie Laurie and Sissy met us too. Below Abby with her Uncle Pete. Not sure why they both look so serious. She loves her Uncle Pete.

Cousin Josh is getting big fast!

Abby loves cousin Josh :)

Playing with my new toy. Again looking so serious.

Abby modeling her new fall sweater that we found at the festival.

Sunday Abba and Mommy went to the Virginia Living Museum. Note that someone is sporting a very fine fringe of bangs now.

She loves the fish.

The outside portion has live wild animals to see.

Not too many outside pictures as I was too busy chasing my little one around :0 Later that night I decided to cut some more bangs for my Abba. They aren't perfect but I think she looks adorable and more importantly she can see. Yes I caved, I know I'm weak! I got tired of her hair hanging in her eyes all the time. Later on , when she is older and will keep her hair clips in we will grow them out.

Just some various shots of her bangs.

I'll leave ya with this video. Abby is big on diapering her babies these days. I had to move the diapers because she keeps getting into them when I'm not looking :)
