Let Summer Begin!

Today was Noah’s last day of his first year of pre-school. The weather was the perfect “last day of school” weather… sunny and warm {it’s supposed to be in the upper 80’s/90’s today} and a nice strong breeze… okay so the breeze is actually more like a good strong wind… but it helps keep things a little cooler.

One dry, one to go!

Our diaper/pull-up days are numbered here in our house! While Noah has been dry during the day for the past year, he has still been wearing {and needing pull-ups} at night. Over the past few months, the number of dry nights have been increasing, but there were still many, many, many nights that weren’t {not to mention that we had our fair share of nights that ended up with wet sheets}.

Ice teef

Someone in our house is teething. She has been for a while… in fact I felt two of her little molars while we were away on vacation. Those little buggers have slowly been pushing their way up and Abby could almost always be seen with either one or both fists crammed into her mouth. It’s been over three weeks and they still haven’t broken through the skin though, so there have been a lot of fist in mouth days for her!

Abigail at 14 months

Want to hear something crazy? When asked how old Abby is, I actually have to stop and think about it (and I may have told some people the wrong age a time or two). Little miss Abigail is 14 1/2 months old today and the time is just flying by.

Abby’s Pizza Party

One of the problems with living in a townhouse is that there isn’t much room to celebrate in the colder months, especially when the immediate family is as large as ours is. Because of this, Abby’s first birthday ended up being a pizza party at one of our favorite local pizzeria’s… not what you may expect of a first birthday, but it turned out great!

Happy Birthday Abigail!

Dear little Abby,

One year ago you let us know that you were a strong willed little girl… you were so determined to come out and meet us even though you were supposed to wait until April 2nd (give or take ). You were a tiny little peanut… not the big baby we were expecting and your “drive thru” delivery had the whole maternity ward talking about you.

Jump, Jump, Jumping

Mr Noah has learned how to jump! He finally figured it out about a month ago and has been jumping and hopping all over the house since. It’s too cute – at first he barely got any air under his feet, but it was completely new to him and he loved it and squealed in delight whenever he jumped (while saying “jump” at the same time, because you can’t jump if you don’t say it).

11 days

11 days until Abby turns 1. I can’t even tell you what I was doing a year ago at this time… probably studying for my Psych class or preparing for another check up with my OB. I know that I wasn’t expecting my second born to be gracing us with her presence in such a short amount of time… both in days and the length of time it actually took to birth her.
