Abigail is 4 months old

Our little girl is 4 months old today! She is an amazing baby. I just sit in awe at times watching her experience so many new things. She enjoys spending time in her exersaucer now that she has good control of her upper body. She is still not a big fan of tummy time but we have to make her do it so that she will continue to build her upper body strength for when she starts to roll over and eventually crawl. She likes to talk and squeal to herself especially in the car. It's amazing how much she has changed. Thank you God for keeping Abigail healthy and strong. We go on Wednesday to the pediatrician for her 4 month check up. I will post an update of her growth after the appointment.
Well, we've made it through week one of "Daddy day care". If you didn't already know, due to some changes with Mark's jobs and the lack of hours, we had to make some decisions to help keep us afloat. Mark's last day at UPS and Abigail's last day at daycare was on the 20th. Mark was able to go on full time at Kroger working the graveyard shift (11p to 6a or 7:30a). He takes care of Abigail during the day, sleeps a little throughout the day when Abigail naps and then he gets about 4-5 hours of sleep when I get home from work. I am so thankful that Mark is such a hard worker. God blessed me with a great husband! Although Mark and I don't see much of each other during the week, we are able to spend our weekends together. It has been a major adjustment but we know it's for the best. Please pray that Mark gets enough rest, that our marriage grows stronger every day and that Abigail continues to be healthy and strong. Enjoy a couple of videos that we have taken in the last couple of weeks. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

Our Special Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day will always be a special day for us. One year ago today, we found out that we were pregnant. What an exciting year this has been. God blessed us with a good and healthy pregnancy and a wonderful and healthy baby girl. Abigail is a true miracle. Thank you all for keeping us in your prayers. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

Recent video of Abigail

Here's a video we took of Abigail Tuesday night. Sorry it took me awhile to post it. Enjoy! I can't wait to get a video of her laughing. She did a bunch of laughing tonight before she went to bed. Maybe next time we'll get her to do it on video. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

Abigail's first cold

Our poor little Abigail has had a cold since last Wednesday morning. She's been stuffed up, sneezing and coughing. She had a slight fever for a day. Thankfully she has still been eating well. We thought that daycare would probably send her home so we called reinforcements. Grandma Belle came up on Sunday and has been watching her while Mark and I go to work this week. What a blessing! Abigail is getting better but still has a nasty cough. It kept her up a lot Sunday night but she got a real good sleep last night. We are blessed with such a wonderful baby. Even though she's been sick, she has kept her happy disposition. Please continue to pray that she heals quickly and completely. Here's a couple pictures from tonight's tummy time and with her "pillow". Until next time...God is good! All the time!
