8 months!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, time is passing by so quickly! I am so missing the time when I could just hold her in my arms, cuddle her, rock her to sleep and she would let me, but I am loving that she can laugh, climb, crawl, babble and stand. It's fun to hear how close she is to talking. Every day she gets closer to saying "mama". It's coming soon ( I just know it). 

At eight months Abbi:

  • weighs 14 lbs 6 oz. (her head is probably most of that weight)
  • is still wearing 3 month clothes. Some of her pants are 3-6 months, but the majority of her clothes are 3 month. 
  • is wearing size one diapers. Oh she has one cute little bum. 
  • is crawling, pulling herself up on furniture and walking along furniture. I think full blown walking is going to happen soon. (isn't she too short to walk?)
  • loves to taste anything and everything! If she can get to it and pick it up, it's going in her mouth. 
  • has two teeth and LOVES to use them. She has a great bite! 
  • insists on yelling instead of talking. Inside voice? What's that?
  • has already gotten a hair cut and you can't even tell. Apparently her hair grows fast. 
  • loves being outside! It may be her favorite place yet! We are so happy the weather is getting warmer! Welcome Spring! 
  • sleeps pretty well. Sometimes she sleeps the whole night and sometimes she wakes up once. We're making progress though! Her naps are great! Usually, she naps for two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. It's great! 
  • loves being in her highchair and eating "real food". Pears and sweet potatoes still seem to be the favorites! 

I can't get enough of this girl. I love spending my days with her! 
She makes me so happy!

Cousin Time!

Last weekend, we got to party with Ryker and Daniel (Abbi's two cousins on Drew's side). Okay, first of all, remember when Ryker was this big, then he grew a little bit, but now he is a little boy! No more baby Ryker, he is a full blown toddler!

Ryker came up on Friday and stayed with Nana and Grandpa for the weekend. Since we just live down the street now, we got to see him every day! We went for walks, shared toys, strollers and had so much fun! Ryker couldn't get enough of Abbi. He kissed her whenever he got the chance, hugged her, and even got down on all fours to crawl around with her. On Saturday, Stephanie and Daniel came out to play too. These three cousins are so adorable together! They will all be best friends when they are older!

Sorry for the picture overload...
I just couldn't narrow them down to just a few.

Abbigail officially had her first play-date! My good friend Koryn and I had our cute baby girls 2 weeks apart. We were excited to get them together and just as I had hoped, they are so cute together! Abbi and Brinley love each other. Brinley was really nice to share her toys with Abbi. They played together, followed each other {everywhere} and they both loved playing in the mirror! They were pretty much inseparable!

It really is too bad Brinley is moving away... :( Her Dad got accepted to Law school. We're really excited for their family, but sad we can't have fun play-dates more often!

My Lovely Laundry Helper..

I have the best laundry helper. We have a super great system worked out. I wash and dry the clothes. I put them in a basket to be folded. She takes the clothes out of the basket and puts them on the floor. I take the clothes from the floor, fold them and put them in the appropriate piles. She gets distracted, crawls over to the newly folded clothes and knocks the pile over. It's a bunch of fun! Laundry may take us a little longer than normal, but we have way more fun! 

But seriously moms, how do you get any housework done when your baby is mobile?

I can't believe the day finally came! I never thought I would actually finish. I had so many thoughts of "I can't do this", "do I really need a degree", "I just want to be a mom". Seriously, my college career felt like a lifetime! But the day finally came! Drew and I were able to graduate together! That was so fun! During the commencement, it was mentioned that there were 67 couples graduating together. It's fun to think that we were one of those couples! 
Our families came into town and it was such a fun time (we don't get to see them enough!) We had dinners at Garcia's in Idaho Falls (Sorry Nicole! Wish you guys could have been there). I was so happy to see all of my family! Mine and Drew's parents get along so well, it's always a party! 

It's weird to think I have no more school, no more homework, tests, study sessions etc...
 I'm looking for a new hobby. Any Suggestions??

It's a Girl!


Ok, seriously folks. Can you believe it has been one year since I posted this. It has been one full year! One year since we found out that cute little gummy bear in my belly was a beautiful, spunky little girl. It seriously blows my mind. Now that cute girl that grew so big in my belly, is over 7 months old, crawling, pulling herself to a stand, and babbling. I swear she is about to say "mama", I can feel it in my bones. {she's so close!} People tell you that they "grow up so fast", but they're not kidding. Every time I blink, she passes another milestone. Seriously time, SLOW DOWN! I love my cute girl. I love my cute family. Life may be CRAZY busy right now with finals and graduation right around the corner, but I am going to try and relax and enjoy my perfect family!

Oh and, General Conference is this weekend! {My favorite time of the year!}
