It's a Boy!

Joseph Mitchel Perez was born October 29, 2008 at 7:24 pm. Becky did great and is so glad she chose to have him at a birthing center. He came super fast and early, but he was ready because this little guy weighs 9 pounds 11 ounces. Becky kept telling me she thought she was having a big baby!

Grandpa Wortley is getting a good look at his 5th grandbaby!

Reece likes her new little brother.

Congratulations Becky and Daniel!!

Grandma Valerie loves this new little guy!

Little Joseph is all ready to go home!

Look at these two babies. Could they be related?

This is baby brother Joseph a few hours old.

This is big sister Reece when she was one day old. Hmmm....I think they look alike. Look at those cute noses!

Fall Festival and Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday we took our cute little Pumpkin to the Fall Festival at church.
Reece was a very cute Minnie Mouse. Baby Perez will be here soon! We can't wait to meet the new baby!!

Dalena had fun at the Fall Festival. Abigail watched her cousin play lots of games.

Reece and Abigail decided they didn't really want to look at the camera.

The pumpkin costume got a little hot in the sun, so we let her hang out without all that extra material.

Today we went to the Pumpkin Patch at my parent's church. It was a pretty chilly morning. I don't think Abigail has ever really felt cold weather before, so this was a new experience.

Weekend with Mawmaw

This weekend Adam's family came to visit Abigail. She had lots of fun meeting so many new relatives. Here is a picture of Adam's dad, Abigail, Mawmaw, and Adam.

Adam's Aunt Gayle got to spend time playing with Abigail!

Adam's Uncle Randy and Cousin Kristin also got to spend some time playing with Abigail. I think everyone thought she was pretty cute!

Atticus is Abigail's favorite. Notice the handful of skin and hair she is pulling. Atticus does not mind if she pulls his hair or ears. He even lets her poke him in the eye. He just loves the attention she gives him. He likes to be right beside her when she is playing on the floor.

We got a call from Nurse Becky at Dr. Ramsey's office. Abigail's lab work came back with great news!! It looks like she has outgrown her food allergies!! Praise the Lord!! I really thought she would have issues forever. I am very grateful, and I have really enjoyed drinking milk and eating cheese again!!

The Park

On Friday morning we took Abigail to our neighborhood park. It was fun to watch her laugh while she was swinging.
Last week the doctor gave me the okay to start eating dairy and soy again. So far I think her system is handling it just fine. We will do some lab work next week to double check to make sure she has not had any negative reactions to the dairy and soy. I am having to give her even more iron supplements because she continues to be anemic. The doctor also wants her to gain more weight. She only gained one pound in the last two months. We will check her blood and weight in a month. Hopefully we can add a little bit more weight to this little girl.

Happy Birthday Dalena!

Dalena had a very fun Princess Birthday Party this weekend. I can't believe my little niece is already four years old! She was very busy at her party playing with all her friends. We really enjoyed being outside because it was such a beautiful day. Abigail also liked playing with her cousins and uncles. Uncle Bobby loved spending the day with his four nieces! Can you believe Crystal is in Middle School this year? She is almost as tall as her Aunt Amanda!

Grandma really enjoyed spending extra time with all her Grandaughters.

It took all three brothers and my dad to make sure the pinata was high enough for all the kids to get a good swing.
Dalena was the first to swing at Cinderalla. I also want to thank my good friend Dr. Griffin for driving all the way to our house to give Atticus his check-up and a shot. She is such a good friend. Atticus was a very good patient for Sarah. He made me proud! He was just so excited someone came over to give him some extra love and attention.

Happy Six Month Birthday!

Today Abigail is six months old! She has two teeth and loves to sit up to play. Her favorite foods this week are oatmeal and peas. Monday we will go for her six months check-up. I am praying that she has outgrown her food allergies! I think the doctor will allow me to slowly start eating different foods. I am a little scared about eating dairy or soy again. If she hasn't outgrown her allergies it will take a month for her system to heal. My baby is so sensitive!!! The good news is that Abigail did not have to see the doctor for two whole months. The first four months of her life we went to the doctor every 2 or 3 weeks. We haven't gone one time since her four month check-up! I did have to call in a prescription for her sensitive skin, but we did not have to see the doctor. I think she is getting tougher!!
