Abby and Tucker

Abby and Mercer's Tucker.  He LOVED Abby at first.  And then she grabbed his tail.  And ear.  And I'm pretty sure eye.  After that, he still loved her.  Just from a distance :o)

We have the crap...wait, I mean the croup!

A much needed update -

Daddy and Abby had a day together today - Abby has been sick, so we had to take her in.  She had this cough that wouldn't quit.  Diagnosis?  The Croup.  Crap.  I mean really?  Who gets the croup anymore??!??!  Poor Abby!  When I talked to Tim after the appointment and his day with Abby, he informed me that he loved being home with her and wanted to quit his job.  Please send money.

Abby is crawling ALL over the place, pulling up, and talking like a fool!  She LOVES to be outside in her stroller.  She met Mercer's doggie Tucker yesterday and LOVED him.

We are headed to Mobile sometime this month - we havent been in FOREVER.  I can't wait for some BIG TIME DINER!!!!!!

Exercise is fun

All my rowdy friends have settled down!


For anyone wondering, yes, this is her crib and she slept in it all night long.  No waking up mid - night to be put in her rock and play sleeper like before.  What a big girl :)

Can they hit terrible 2s this early!?

Major Developmental Milestone = Major Stress!

So...we've all known that Abby WANTED to crawl.  She wanted to be able to get to her "things."  However, when I put her in the floor Saturday around lunch, I did not expect to walk back into the room and find her several feet away with the remote control in her mouth!!  I promptly grabbed the camera, took the remote, and moved her back where I put her.  Hence, the "cursing me out" babbling in the crawling video.  She was SO MAD.  She is quickly becoming a crawling pro!!  Tamicia said at daycare she is trying to keep up with the boys!!  Poor Miss T!!  And obviously, crawling takes it out of you - she drank 24 oz today at daycare (unheard of!) and has now been asleep for almost 2 hours after daycare.

This little girl is SO SWEET.  Tim and I comment daily on what a happy baby she is.  (As long as reflux and ear infections are under control!!).  All she wants is to be close to you and to play.  I could eat her up!!

In other news, she STILL can't roll over from back to front!!

Say big prayers for my friends Amy & Justin Carlisle tonight.  Amy goes in to be induced tonight.  I remember all too well how scared I was, and I know she is just as scared.  Hopefully tomorrow (early, right Amy?!) we will have a baby Kinsey Marie Carlisle in the world!

First Crawl


And no, that is not sweet babbling.  She is MAD at me for taking the remote away :)

Yes. That's her foot holding the bottle

Update as Promised....

I know.  I have been a slacker in the worst way.  But at least I post pictures for your enjoyment, right?  I try :)


We will start with the good.  Abby has some great new accomplishments.  

  • Hysterical laughter.  When she gets going, she laughs and laughs and laughs.  To the point of squealing.  She also squeals with delight when she's happy or just wanting to make noise.
  • Which brings me to #2.  NOISE.  She is the noisiest baby!  She makes sound when she's happy, when she's sad, when she's mad, when she's sleepy.  She started off saying "baba" about a month ago.  "Baba" quickly lead to "mmmmbah" which lead to "mama."  Daddy didn't like that.  So on her way to school everyday, he worked with her.  Now she ONLY says "dadadadadada."  She says "maaaaaaaa" when she is upset.  What a brat daddy's girl.  
  • Movement.  Abby can now crawl/slide backwards.  Turn in a circle.  Sit up from crawling position.  Rock back and forth.  She still cannot do anything from her back.  Like a turtle.  Can't sit up.  Can't roll over.  It's kinda funny!  She's also trying to pull up/push up on anything and everything.
Tim apparently passed his kidney stone on his day of intense pain.  He does have a phlebolith though.  They will look at it again in 6 months.  

Abby went to have her ears checked on Wednesday.  It was the first time they had no fluid since July.  YAY!  She is to remain on antibiotics until at least Wednesday or her congestion clears up.  At her next ear infection, we will be sent to the tube doctor (ENT).  

We went to the neurosurgeon about her noggin again.  He reiterated that she has a big head like me.  Her CT Scan showed no brain abnormalities, praise God!  He thinks her flat spot will even itself out (and it does more and more everyday).  We just have to continue to position her on that left side so they will equal out.  She goes to see a physical therapist the first of October for some neck stretches.  I think she's perfect :)

We are back on Alimentum for the time being.   She was getting milk rash all over again from the GoodStart.  The day we stopped the GoodStart, the rash went away :(  So we will try again in another month!  We also put her on a probiotic at the suggestion of the doctor since she has been on an ANTIbiotic for 39 of the last 59 days.  Yuck!!  So between the culturelle, the antibiotics, and the prevacid/buffer babies, this poor child is taking medicine all day!!!!!

That's about it for now.  We are heading to Birmingham to watch Maeghan in the band at a home football game.  And then back to my house for Football Saturday and Grandparents' Day Sunday :)  Love y'all!
