March Recap

My congratulations to the working moms who can keep up - because I sure am not....

Here is a recap of our March:

Abigail was doing so well with potty training, but after her turn with a stomach bug, she has decided that she is no longer interested and refuses-- as in she tried to put a diaper on herself so that she could go to the bathroom. We are thinking we will try again after my sister's wedding.

Abigail has a Mickey towel and was having fun wearing it and putting her little dance backpack on.

This scence melted our hearts one day. We hope she keeps on loving books and reading.

We most definitely tried to enjoy the beautiful weather that March brought.

Daddy turned 30 at the end of February. We celebrated with cake a few days later. He also got more Legos.

Grandma Amy treated us to a fun day with the cousins. She took us to the Amococo exhibit at the Mesa Arts Center. It was hard for the kids not to just think it was a giant bounce house. The lighting inside was pretty neat.

Abigail was intrigued by this person walking around the exhibit area.

It was a fun day! Thanks Grandma Amy!

I spent some of my best $2 ever. I found this bed set at a garage sale. I'm not usually one for buying cloth related items, but I couldn't pass this up. I was in the process of leaving and feeling guilty I hadn't bought anything. I had stopped because I thought I saw something Legos related. Then something caught my eye in a box on the ground. Then, as I continued to investigate I learned the bedding was crib/toddler size. I asked how much they wanted for them - bracing for possible disappointment. Then the ladies told me only a couple dollars. I tried to give them $3, but they gave me a $1 back. I was SUPER excited - as was Abigail. We quickly washed them because she wanted them. I had been looking for Mickey bedding for awhile with no success-couldn't justify $129.99 on Amazon. YEAH!! She gladly sleeps in the comfort of Mickey now.

Abigail took her unfortunate turn with the traveling stomach bug. Mommy got a small turn, but near as much as poor Abigail. We were reading books on her bed when the fun started. Woohoo for us. It was helpful, but cute and very sad that she knew what to do with the bowl we kept nearby. Also, with her increasing vocabulary it broke our hearts when she came to us and told us her tummy hurt-which usually led to fun for us all.

Daddy has been busy helping remodel/add-on to his sister's house. We go check on his progress and sometimes we even help a little. We are very excited to see it when it is finished.

Our family kept with the trend of Spring Break being a popular time to get married - with a cousin getting married. We had fun visiting with family at the luncheon.

Aunt Marilee's wedding dress arrived - so the nieces took turns trying it on.

March was a fast, but good month. It is crazy how fast summer is coming, but we have been loving Spring. Abigail continues to surprise us with her ever increasing vocabulary. It also includes some sassy talk and talking back at times - so we are working on that. She loves to sing and gets attention from others about her cuteness and singing when she does her singing at random times in public. She's a handful, but we LOVE it and wouldn't trade it. Hopefully, I will better document Abigail's growth and development when I blog about April.

She is getting so big! I am sorry you had the stomach bug, that is no fun at all, for all involved! Your hair is getting so long too, I like it.
