Abigail is 9 months old

We are so blessed! Abigail is 9 months old today. Thank you God for everyday. We are grateful for such a healthy, beautiful and happy baby. She has really surprised us with how fast she caught on to crawling. We have done more "baby-proofing" the last couple of days because she is really moving around now. We took a video as soon as I got home from work yesterday. She crawled right to me. She hasn't learned to sit back up from the crawling position but I am sure that will come soon enough. We are going for her 9 month check up Friday so I will post an update then. Please continue to pray for her teething pain and discomfort to subside soon. Enjoy the picture and video. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

1st crawl caught on video!

We are so excited! We got Abigail's very first crawl on video tonight. She is not going far but she will definitely be moving all over soon. We are so blessed! Thank you God for a beautiful, happy and healthy baby girl. Please continue to pray for her teething pain to ease up. Enjoy the video. Oh and listen out, you can hear her say "Momma". Until next time...God is good! All the time!

She said Momma!

It has been a very long couple weeks with Abigail struggling with those top four teeth coming in. Today was especially long because I had been up since 4am, went to work and then church nursery tonight. Even through all that, today ended up being a great day because Abigail finally said Momma! I thought I heard her say it when I was holding her and talking to a friend at church but I wasn't sure. Then it was clear as a bell when I put her in the carseat and she started crying. A few ladies that were walking by even heard her say it. I have been waiting to hear that word for so long! Although she was saying it when she was clearly upset, I'm still glad she said it. I can't wait to hear her vocabulary grow. She is growing up so fast! Keep us in your prayers. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

4 years since our first date

Today we celebrate the 4th anniversary of our first date. Mark is a wonderful, kind and loving husband and father. Thank you God for bringing us together. We are blessed!

Standing up some

We wanted to see how well Abigail would do standing up against a piece of furniture so we tested that tonight. She did well for the first time. She should be lifting herself up soon. No crawling yet but she has definitely gotten the hang of being on her knees and rocking back and forth. We go next Friday for her 9 month check up. It is hard to believe how fast she is growing. The top four teeth have really been giving her discomfort for the last couple weeks. Last night was pretty rough. She managed to settle down around 1:30am once the motrin kicked in. Please pray for her. Also pray for me at work. It has been very demanding for awhile and the lack of sleep is not helping. I am thankful for my job, just pray I can meet the deadlines expected of me. Enjoy some recent pictures and tonight's video. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

Teething & Up On Knees

Abigail had quite a rough week with teething. The four teeth on top are causing much discomfort for her. You can see them in the picture above. She has not slept well, eaten well and has been quite fussy the entire week. Tylenol and teething tablets have helped some. Please pray for her. She has started to get up on her hands and knees more this week. She should be crawling soon. We need to prep the apartment for this new adventure! Enjoy the videos and pictures we took this week. Please keep us in your prayers. Until next time...God is good! All the time!

Some more firsts...

Here are a few pictures of some of Abigail's firsts. She sat and ate her breakfast this morning in her high chair for the first time this morning. The high chair is actually the one I used when I was a baby. Thank you Nonni for letting me have the high chair. The other pictures are from Abigail's first 4th of July. We spent a few hours at a friend's house with other friends from church. Good times and good food. Please pray for Abigail. She is cutting her top 4 teeth and it is causing her much discomfort. She is not eating well and was extremely fussy tonight which has caused her to get less sleep. Poor thing! I know this is just one painful part of growing up but I just hate seeing her miserable. Thank you for praying. Until next time...God is good! All the time!
