Good-bye, June

June sure flew by, but Tiffany and Jefferson's wedding was beautiful. We still have the reception here, but the Open House in Thatcher was nice. We are very tired, but had a couple of weeks to recover before the reception.

Abigail continues to be a busy little girl. She is just growing up so fast!!

She is about 25 1/2 lbs, is about 32 inches tall, and she is working on teeth #13, 14, 15, and 16. She is getting better and better at so many little skills. She amazes John and I all the time with what she can do. She loves to sing and dance. You should see her when the "Hannah Montana" or "Phineas and Ferb" theme songs come on. She also has a growing list of favorite songs: We hear "E-I-E-I-E" - with "whooo" recently becoming audible at the end. She does actions for "Itsy-Bitsy Spider" and "Popcorn "Popping". She does the head and shoulders for "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". She can also point to her eyes, nose and mouth. We hear clapping and "App, App" for "If You're Happy and You Know It". She rolls her arms for "Wheels on the Bus" and it sounds like "ound and ound" in rhythm. Last night we noticed she was saying what sounded like "Up and Down" and and she was going up and down on her tip-toes. She does some of the actions for "Pat-a-Cake" and I am sure I am forgetting something. I asked one of her nursery teachers if she does much of that while in nursery -- not really.... Sounds good!! She saves it all for us and we love it!!

She is getting better at feeding herself with a fork and spoon and has recently been trying to be more daring with her travels down the stairs (We are still working on that.) She loves to brush her teeth and pretty much tries to imitate what we do.

Her lungs are continuing to be okay, but we are still on medicine. We have a new treatment, which is so much shorter to give. Our latest issue is her four ear infections in the last three months. Yay for us - poor little girl. Her latest one she was just inconsolable for a couple of hours. It was so sad.

This morning she was just so heart-broken when Daddy told her she needed to stay downstairs while he went up stairs to get ready... so sad, but cute!!

She thinks it's fun to stick her hands under the bathroom door for us to get... it is pretty cute, though!

She had lots of fun dress shopping with her Aunt Tiff.

Abigail has become quite the climber and looks for opportunities to get into whatever we may have been unwise enough to leave out.

Having fun on the piano -- She likes to play both mine and hers (and the ones at both grandparents). However, she is starting to use her little one as a stepping (climbing) stool.

She loves helping me in the kitchen-which is usually fun for me! but I love it!!

Can you tell she enjoyed what she ate? If you ask her if she wants to eat, her "yes" response consists of running to her chair with excitement. She enjoys folding her arms to bless the food - and often does so if the room gets quiet. We are starting to hear "Amen" sometimes, too.

Abigail loves to play with the hat and purses from her grandmas. John caught her in the fun one morning.

John was leaving for school one morning and Abigail got up, grabbed a grocery bag and was ready to go.

Enjoying some new Legos with Daddy -- She was actually saying "Cheese" for me on this one.

We have been enjoying cooking on the barbeque -- and now have a little patio table set to eat on.
