Abby's First Christmas

This was taken on Jer's phone, so it's a bit blurry, but I love this picture of Abigail getting ready for her first Christmas.

Sick Today

Just documenting Abigail's first sickness. She's doing fine just a cold with snot everywhere. She was making this goofy face all day today too.

Melting Pot

The best husband in the world (my husband, in case you were wondering) babysat for me two nights in a row. The first was Black Nativity. The second was me going to Happy Hour at Melting Pot for my friend, Kelsey's birthday. My Tacoma friends here are Leah, Kelsey (due in Feb.) me, Sarah (due with twins any moment), and Drea.

Tree Hunting

Tree Hunting was a blast! We got my dream...a big tree. It's nine feet tall. We went with my sister's family, Ross, Emma & Elena. It started snowing as we were loading the tree up. We went to Burger King afterward.

Black Nativity 1

Posted by PicasaOn November 30th, my friends, Amber, Andrea, Kelly, Kelly, Steph and Lena, and I went to see Amber perform in the Black Nativity and out for Andrea's birthday. We had dinner at Racha Thai and drinks at Pesos afterward. Fun times!

Black Nativity

Amber, Andrea & Lena
My beautiful friend, Amber performed this year in Seattle's "Black Nativity." It is an amazing show of the nativity and the story of Christ set to black, gospel music. I highly recommend it!

Five Months Old

Things She Does: sit-up, babble...a lot..., stand while holding furniture or fingers (closely watched), interact with people. Her stats: 15 lbs 3 oz. and 25 inches long, She loves: Her dad, her exersaucer, putting things in her mouth, being a part of things, music, the bath. My sister, Shannon, was reflecting on personality traits of her own children and how they were pretty well established in their early months. I decided to write down some of Abby's personality traits and see how well my observations are preserved throughout her life. If I were to predict her personality, I would say she's like a cat - cuddly when she wants to be but independent when she wants to be. She is joyful with a cheerful disposition. She is social, active, very curious, an observer, talkative, and enjoys goofiness. She is also cute as a button....I may be a bit bias here!

Bitter Beer Face

OK, Maybe it's not as extreme, but Abigail's new lip thing is reminding us of the Bitter Beer Face...maybe she's a bit cuter though.
