Lately, life has been pretty awesome! To start off, we bought a car! {woot woot!} It is a beautiful 2007 Honda Civic. Seriously, It's like we were made for each other. I was driving down the road one day, glanced over at the used car lot as I was driving by (as I do almost everyday) and saw crappy car, crappy car, junky car, beautiful, nice, Honda Civic, crappy car, crappy car, you get the idea. It stuck out like a sore thumb. The next morning I called to get the details, It was in our price range and the year we wanted and we were the first people to call on it. He had just put it out on the lot a few days prior. What? I was so excited, after test driving it, taking it to a mechanic, etc, we bought it! Oh happy, happy day! 

Last weekend, Ryker came to town again. This time his parents were here too! We love when Heather and Justin get to come visit. Also, Abbi and Ryker are best friends! It's adorable! They follow each other around, kiss each other, laugh with one another, and it is awesome! When Abbi takes a toy Ryker is playing with or even thinking about playing with, he kinda gets upset, but Abbi doesn't care. She is just happy to be with him! That's why their friendship is working out so great! While he was here, we busted out the little swimming pool at Nana's house and they loved it! Abbigail loves water. But when it comes to swimming, she takes a little longer to warm up. (like 20 minutes or so). But after she has decided she is ready, we can't pull her away! She loves it! I need to take her to the little water park here in Pocatello. I bet she would be in Heaven! 

Drew and I were able to leave Abbi and Nana and Grandpa's house and sneak away to the temple. Temple dates are my favorite! I come home with joy and peace in my heart and a renewed love for Drew and Abbigail AND I feel my relationship with my Heavenly Father grows as I go to the temple. It's awesome! 

A couple days ago, Abbi's small cold started getting a lot worse and she got a fever. I know, I know, you're thinking, "She is sick again?" I thought she was, so I took her to the doctor and he told us there is no ear infection, but FOUR news teeth coming through. Poor Abbi huh? So the last couple days at our house have been quite miserable if I'm being honest with you. I feel like these kind of days have been the hardest part of being a mom so far. My baby is sick/teething, not feeling good, crying and I really can't do anything for her except Tylenol and cuddling. It makes for a very frustrated and exhausted Mama. 

Last but definitely not least, in fact it's probably to coolest thing to happen in the past week, Abbi has become a walking machine! It's awesome! She has been working on walking for the past couple of weeks, but just this week she has almost mastered it. She still falls, and she cant stand back up on her own yet, but she can just about make it across a whole room. And the best thing is she isn't afraid to try anymore. She gets excited to walk! She squeals and flaps her arms as she is trying to balance while walking across the room. Then, when she falls, she claps for her self. She is so funny. Anyway, to prove it, here is a video!

And that's about it. Thanks for reading!

P.S. I know I've been changing my blog design just about as often as I change Abbi's diapers (and as you know, that is FREQUENT!) But I like this design, so I think it should be here awhile...
