More Baby Levi

Abigail watches proud Papa Matt show off Baby Levi, while Mama Song looks on.

Strike a pose

Doesn't this totally look like Abigail is posing for a Senior Picture?

Fall is here, time to get ready for winter

Crayons are not for eating

I give you evidence to demonstrate why it is a BAD idea to let a toddler color with crayons while waiting for their lunch. Hungry baby + crayons, not a good combination.

Videos galore!

Abigail loves music. Here's an assortment of short videos of her dancing, singing, and enjoying music. Make sure you've got your volume up so you can hear the music!

Randomnity:Tutu, Crayon, Camera, Park

Bought Abigail a little tutu, since she loves to dance. Isn't she just stunningly beautiful in this photo?

Abigail is starting to like coloring scribbling with crayons, instead of just eating them. And putting them in the box then taking them out again it lots of fun, too. But she still does try to eat them sometimes. Never a dull moment around here.

I let Abigail take some pictures yesterday. Here is her self-portrait:

And her snapshot of me:

Abigail learned how to use a new toy at the park today. She worked long and hard to climb up to the seat, but eventually she did it all by herself.

Concentrating so hard...

More pictures from our trip

Levi Matthew is here!

Our dear, dear friends Matt and Song had their baby boy on Sunday. Levi Matthew was born Sept. 10, at 4:07pm. He weighed in at 8lbs. 0oz., 21.5 inches (almost the exact same as Abigail). He is healthy (although he does have a little bit of jaundice.) Dark hair, dimples, long fingers, absolutely adorable. In fact, he sounds an awful lot like the description of Abigail at a few days old. We are sure they will be fast friends, as soon as he is old enough to defend himself when Abigail gets a little overzealous with her affection.

We got to go visit him tonight, and Abigail was quite intrigued by this tiny, 2-day-old human. We didn't get a picture of it, but she kept trying to give him kisses. Abigail kisses involve a wide open mouth and lots of slobber, so needless to say, we did NOT let her kiss the newborn!

Look At Me! I'm a Human Pincushion!

Abigail had a well-baby checkup and immunizations today. It was a little rough. She missed her 12 month immunizations (thanks to Yours Truly) - so today we had to do some catch-up. She had 6 (yes, six!) shots AND she had blood drawn for testing. The poor girl really was getting poked like a pincushion.

The sucker that she got in the lab helped her to forget about the pain. She really hasn't had much candy yet, and never a sucker, so this was quite the treat. As we walked to the car, I realized that I didn't want her alone in the back seat with the sucker. (Can you say choking hazard?) I pondered how to take the sucker away with as little trauma as possible, but I had no ideas.

Fortunately, when I put her in the carseat she became quite enamored by her band-aids, which were now in plain view and easily accessible. She actually dropped the sucker to investigate.

I snatched up the sucker and attempted to play it cool, but Abigail was on to my sly moves. She cried for a bit, but didn't get the sucker back until later in the day. She calmed down after not too long, and was soon zonked out in the back seat. She napped for a couple hours after we got home. A day like that is enough to tire a girl out!

Oh, for those who like details: Abigail is now 33 inches tall (98th %ile), and weighs 26lbs (84th %ile). Everything else checked out well.

The doctor made no mention of the heart murmur she heard at our last visit, nor did she say/ask anything about the testing she sent us to subsequently. She's not a bad doctor, but she hasn't exactly earned any brownie points with me, either. I can only remember one appointment when she actually asked "Do you have any questions?" Anyone in the KC Metro area know of a good pediatrician?

A Day at the Park

The last time Abigail tried to ride one of these, she could barely keep herself from falling off. I could only let go for a quick second to get a picture. Now just look at her - like she's riding a bronco!

Mr. Wormy

Barney just got dissed. Abigail has found a new friend at Walmart. Mr. Wormy has captured her affections (for now).
