Abigail's New Friend

This weekend we went to visit my friend Katie and her family. Katie and I have been friends since first and second grade, so it was so neat to finally hold her little girl. Ellie is about 12 weeks old, so I have been patiently waiting to meet her. My camera battery died, so I didn't get a ton of pictures, but here are a few. It was hard to get Abigail and Ellie to look at the camera at the same time. Abigail was very excited about baby Ellie. When Ellie was napping or nursing in the other room Abigail was always talking about Ellie and wondering why she wasn't playing with her.

Play time for Ellie!!
Abigail was very busy making sure Ellie had enough toys and entertainment.

Adam got to have some cuddle time with Ellie.

When we came home we spent time playing outside with Atticus. Abigail really missed her dog while we were away. Abigail also got some new tennis shoes, and she LOVES them. She likes to wear them all the time. I like them because it takes a lot more effort for her to take them off in the backseat.

We had a great weekend with friends. I wish I had gotten a picture of Ellie with her Mommy and Daddy. We also saw our sweet friends Jen and Jake. Next time I will have to take more pictures with all of Abigail's friends.

17 Months Update

Abigail is learning new words and skills each day! It's so fun to watch her grow and change!! She has always made lots of noise, but her noises are turning into more real words that we can understand. She recognizes almost all of her friends and calls them by name. She is giving us more hugs and kisses each day. She used to reserve most of her hugs and kisses for Atticus, so we are thrilled that her Mommy and Daddy are getting as much love as Atticus. She is learning the names and noises of basic zoo and farm animals. She also does little motions to some of them like the snake, elephant, and monkey.

Playing in Tyler's super fun ball pit. For a girl who loves balls, this is amazing!!

Every girl needs a hat and a necklace!

Abigail's cousin Holly is showing her how to play the piano. Abigail bangs on the keys and then turns the pages to music books. It's pretty cute!
