Smiling and Talking

This is a dress I bought even before I was pregnant, and I have looked forward to putting my future little girl in it ever since.... Abigail is talking and smiling more. I love it! and need to remember to get out the video camera. This morning while laying in her bed and making all sorts of sounds we think she made a couple of sounds that could be counted as possible laughs or giggles - or pre-laughs. IT IS SOOOO CUTE!!!!

She is getting stronger and stronger with her head, neck, and legs. The other day she really got pushing with her legs.... Crazy!

We attempted nap time in her crib for the first time yesterday. It didn't last long, but that's okay. I think it is mostly because we don't have her crib mattress half elevated like her bed in our room. I don't think she is ready for laying flat while sleeping -- looks like she may still be struggling with some reflux.

We had John's grandma over for dinner on Thursday. We call her Nonna - grandma in Italian. She spoils us, and just adored holding and feeding Abigail.

Abigail went to her first restaurant on Monday. I was a little nervous, but decided it was okay because of the good report at the pulmonologist. It was also a smaller place, and I knew it would not be very crowded that night -- The Merrills were going out to eat for John's sister's birthday.... It is one of my favorite places to eat -- John took me there on our first date, and I have enjoyed it ever since. So, Abigail's first restaurant was where Mommy and Daddy went on their first date. Yes, I know it is very cheesey, but I am cheesey.... We both enjoyed a very yummy lasagna dish that practically melted in your mouth as you ate it. The cheesecake and chocolate mousse was also good - though not good for you.
