Evan and Abigail

Abigial loves playing with her friend Evan. She is taking him for a ride on her train. I am not sure what Evan thinks of the train ride, but I think he likes it better everyday!

She is on the move!!

Abigail is really making progress today with her walking. Earlier this morning she stood up all on her own and walked over to her friend Evan to give him a big hug. She is feeling much more confident!! Way to go Abigail!!

Abigail's Moves

Last Wednesday Abigail decided to take her first steps all by herself. She was a little nervous, but I could tell she was really proud of herself. She still prefers crawling because it is so much faster.
Abigail also has some very funny dance moves. They are sometimes hard to catch on video, but here are a couple of her favorite moves. She cracks us up when she gets her arms moving too, but she doesn't always perform on demand.

Here are some peeks at her new skills.

Fun with Reece and Joe

Becky and Daniel had a date night this weekend, so we got to watch Reece and Joe. We had so much playing together. Abigail spends lots of time with my friend's baby named Evan, so calls most babies Evan. We finally got Abigail to say "Oh Joe!" as she was giving him a hug. Reece also made up a song about how much she loves Abigail. It was too cute. I was getting dinner ready, and she was playing on drum while singing about lovin' Abigail.

Reece wanted to go on an Easter egg hunt with some leftover eggs she found in the dining room. Reece was excited because some of the eggs had some stickers in them from Easter.

Today was a beautiful today, so we took the kids to the zoo. Abigail's favorite part might have been driving to the zoo. She got to sit in the backseat with Reece. She laughed and babbled the whole way to the zoo. She had so much to tell her friend Reece. Here is Abigail and Reece ready to see some animals!!

We had a nice picnic lunch in the grass during our visit. It was a nice quiet break from the very crowded paths at the zoo.

Abigail is showing us her "touchdown!" move. She thinks it's so funny!!

Joe was such a good boy, but he got so tired towards the end of our visit. He fell asleep in Becky's pouch as we were walking out of the zoo. Abigail slept most of the way home and then took a nice long nap when we got home. She was super tired.

Here is a picture of Abigail doing her favorite things. She loves looking out the window, looking at books, and spending time with Atticus!!

Happy Easter

Luke 24:46-47 "Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem."

Today we are so thankful for the truth of God's word. We are thankful that Christ suffered for us and on the third day He rose again to forgive us of our sins!!

We spent the morning at church celebrating God's goodness. After church we had some family over for Easter lunch. It was raining, so we had Abigial hunt for eggs inside. She doesn't really know to look for the eggs. We ended up just handing the eggs to her. She really likes to shake the eggs and eat the Cheerios.

Yesterday we had an Easter egg hunt and picnic with our friends at church. We had to show Abigail where to find the eggs because she was not sure what to do.

She was trying to put the eggs in her basket, but she would get super distracted by all the other children.

Jade, Reece, and Abigail would not look at the camera, but I think they look pretty cute sitting on the step together.

There is a chance Jade was protecting her basket from Abigial. Especially because Jade had way more eggs!!

I love this picture of Abigial and her Daddy. It looks like Abigail is really listening to whatever her Daddy is saying.

Happy Easter!!
