Christmas Blog! Finally :)

We are finally home, unpacked, and the house is clean...well, cleanER.  Abby's new toys are strewn throughout the living room.  She can't pick a favorite, so she plays with each one...every day.  She is FINALLY back on schedule after not sleeping for three nights in a row.  This girl needs her schedule.  So, officially, we will not be spending the night off again until she is 16.

We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning in my house with Tim's mom (Gram), my parents (Grandma/Granny Candy and Pops), and Frankie (Fifi).  We fed reindeer, ate seafood lasagna (yummo!), and then opened presents and stockings the next morning.  Abby hated feeding the reindeer (she was tired and it was cold) but loved her presents.  She really loved squishing the paper around.  We left to head to Birmingham after all the festivities at my house, and by the time we hit Chelsea, it was SNOWING.  Yes, Abby's first Christmas was a white one - the first ever in Birmingham history.  She loved getting to see Aunt Monica and Uncle Eric, and of course being doted on by the girls!!  We had a fantabulous first Christmas!!!  We planned to go see Tim's grandfather in Gadsden the day after Christmas, but with icy roads, we werent able to.

In other news, Abby is taking her first tentative steps these days.  Before today, she would take one or two at a time and then collapse and crawl.  Today, we got FOUR big steps.  Last night, she grabbed my face and gave me two kisses.  She is turning into the sweetest girl who is always smiling.  She loves Howie and goes and looks out the back door when he is outside, calling "guh" at him.

Say a little prayer that I can get her new helmet situation resolved.  I just saw the BCBS claim statement saying that it was NOT covered and we owed Hanger $2000.  I am calling tomorrow, but am very annoyed that this is even a possibility.  So, an anonymous $2000 check in the mail would be greatly appreciated at this point!!!!  Well, not even that.  We paid $588 (our portion), so we only need a $1412 check! :)

Enjoy the pictures :)

In the past three days, Abby has taken ONE step a few times. Then immediately drops to her knees and crawls. We are terrified!!!!!

9 Month Appt

It's been a busy few weeks!  I was out of town for about a week and a half total, so Tim had to play Mr. Mom. All in all, I'd say he did awesome - there were a few moments of fun (like forgetting her helmet one day!).  :)  She didn't even seem overly thrilled to see me when I got home....looked up from playing and smiled, hugged me, and went right back down to playing.

She's crawling and cruising all over the place now.  I mean EVERYWHERE.  Pulling up on everythign and everyone.  Grabbing everything.

She had her 9 month appt last week (I know, she's almost 10 month!).  But since there were no "real" shots (besides flu), it could be a little later they say.  She has her one year on her bday.  Anyhow, she weighs 20.5 pounds and is 29 inches, putting her around the 75% for both.  Bless her little (tall, chubby) heart!!  They said that she has eczema, which is common in babies with reflux and/or reactive airway/asthma.  These things she got from her daddy according to the doc.  But of course, she got her big ole head from me :)

Speaking of heads, hers is looking SO much better.  We go back on Tuesday to see Chris and then we start going every 2 weeks.  We will be switching over to Christmas stickers soon! :o)  Hopefully she won't be in it the full 3 months, but I'm preparing myself for the possibility of Valentine's stickers!!!

She and Tim both have a cold and I think they infected me.  Stinkers!!

We are looking forward to Christmas and seeing everyone!!  Tim's mom, mom, dad, and Frankie will be over Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.  And then it's off to Birmingham to see Tim's sis and Eric and the girls.  I believe the day after Christmas, we'll head to Gadsden to see his grandfather.  (To anyone looking to rob my house after reading this blog thinking I won't be home, Frankie will be. And she'll have my gun, my beagle, and my Bible.  So look out!).

Love y'all!!

Happy belated Bday Frankie and Monica!
