Merry Christmas

Luke 2: 11-14

"Today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.'"

We pray you enjoyed celebrating the birth of our Savior this Christmas!!

Abigail's First Christmas

We spent Christmas Eve with Adam's family. Abigail had lots of fun with her family and opening her first Christmas gifts. She was a little slow and really enjoyed the paper and bows more than the actual presents.

Abigail loved all the extra time she got to spend with her Aunt Megan.

Adam and his siblings

Abigail's first present!

Christmas Day

We had a quiet Christmas morning together at home. It was fun watching her open more presents. She got a warm hat and sun glasses. I think she looks pretty cute in both!!

Abigail is giving her Daddy his special Christmas present!

We had more family over for Christmas Day dinner. Abigail got more presents from my family. She also really liked spending time with Uncle Bobby.

Abigail loves to give Atticus lots of love and he loves all the attention!!

After Christmas we visited Adam's Mawmaw in Lousiana. It was Abigail's first big trip. We drove through the night so Abigail could sleep. She did a great job sleeping. Adam and his dad did a great job staying awake and driving. We got home in the middle of the night last night, but thankfully Abigail slept until almost 10:00 this morning. We got to catch up on the sleep we missed during the night. We had a great Christmas!!

Picture Tag

Erica tagged me to look in my fourth folder and select the fourth picture. This is a picture of Abigail when she was only a few weeks old. I am supposed to tag four people, but I think just about everyone I know has been tagged. If you haven't been tagged, then it's your turn to go to your fourth folder and show everyone your fourth picture.

Watch her move!!

Abigail started crawling a little bit two weeks ago. Everyday she feels more and more confident and goes a little farther.

My Little Helper

Wrapping Christmas presents was a little different this year. Abigail really wanted to help! The paper and ribbon was just way too much fun. She thought it was a good idea to put all of it in her mouth for a taste!

Texas Children's Hospital

Today was a very busy day for Abigail. She had an appointment at Texas Children's Hospital to have some testing done. Her doctor wanted to run some tests to make sure she didn't have a urinary reflux problem. She didn't like the catheter testing at all. She was screaming so loud it was hard to hear what the doctor was saying. I don't think she was in pain. I think she was screaming because she didn't want to be held down for so long. As soon as that was over I nursed her and she was much better. She also had an ultrasound on her kidneys. She was a pretty happy baby during the ultrasound. She even smiled a couple of times. The doctor at Texas Children's said that everything looked normal and she just had a one time infection! Praise God that our little one doesn't have to continue the yucky medicine and testing!!

On our way to our car she even got to visit with Santa. He was there visiting the boys and girls in the hospital. I thought she might scream when I put her on Santa's lap because she had such a crazy afternoon and really needed a nap, but she was okay.

It was neat to see all the Christmas things they were doing for the children. So many families have to spend so much time with their little ones in the hospital. I am so thankful for having such a healthy baby. It is easy to take our health for granted, but the Lord reminded me to be truly thankful for the blessing of good health.

8 Months

Abigail is 8 months old today! She is also very excited about Christmas. She thinks the Christmas tree and presents are very interesting. There are so many things to look at and grab. She really likes the bows on the Christmas presents. They are probably way more exciting than anything that could be inside the box.

Abigail is working really hard at crawling. She can get her bottom up in the air and move her hands a little in front of her before rolling over. She is very busy rolling around on the floor while she plays.
