Rice Cereal

This morning Adam and I gave Abigail her first solid food. She really liked it!! Adam doesn't have class on Friday, so he gets to spend extra time with us on Fridays. We are both really excited about seeing him more this semester.

Four Month Check-Up

We went to the doctor this week for Abigail's four month check-up. I was very excited because her lab results came back with good news. It took her a month to heal from my silly meal that I ate in July. She weighs 14.4 pounds and is 25 and 3/4 inches long. Abigail was very brave during all her pokes. Nurse Becky had to draw blood to check her iron levels and give her some shots. Becky makes me cover Abigail's eyes because she doesn't want Abigail to remember that her friend Becky gave her the shots. My guess is she has already forgotten all about the shots. My doctor told me to start trying solid foods sometime between now and her 6th month appointment. I sent Adam to the store to pick up her high chair on his way home from school yesterday. She likes sitting in her new chair. She tries to eat the straps because she wants to put anything and everything in her mouth.

Abigail is Four Months Old!

On Saturday Abigail turned four months old! Everyday we have lots of fun together. She is laughing more and smiles all the time. I think she is getting better at taking longer naps, but everyday is still a little different. Last night I fed her around 10:30, and she slept until 6:00 this morning. I fed her at 6:00 and she acted like she wanted to play, but I was able to rock her back to sleep. We both went back to sleep for a couple more hours. I was very thankful for two more hours of sleep. I was not ready to play that early in the day. We go back to the lab this week, so we are praying that her system is all healed from that silly meal I ate on July 2nd!! My doctor has been very supportive and keeps encouraging me to continue to breastfeed and just monitor my diet.

Atticus and Casey

Casey is spending the week with us while her parents are in Colorado. Atticus is really loving having extra attention from his friend!! They play together in the backyard, but they really just want to hang out with the people all day long. Casey loves to lay as close as she can to your feet. She loves to cuddle!
Casey loves her friend Atticus!
It looks like Casey is telling Atticus a secret. They can be pretty cute together.
The dogs are watching Abigail play on the floor. They are both very sweet and gentle around Abigial. They know to keep their distance, but sometimes they can't help but sniff and give a little lick.
