Christmas 2007

It's a few days past Abigail's first Christmas, and she has yet to open the presents that Mike and I bought for her. I am not sure when she's going to open them - Mike and I are talking about waiting until her birthday for some of them. She received so many presents from her grandmas and extended family, that she has enough to keep her occupied for quite awhile! She also got a lot of clothes, which is wonderful. Mike and I have been so lucky that we haven't had to buy her any clothes yet (except one package of socks and her Halloween costume).

She was interested in the presents - ripping the bows off of everything - and intently watching me peel back the wrapping paper. She got a lot of toys that she likes - most of which make obnoxious noise.

Aside from the cold that she brought home a few days before Christmas, that Mike and I both caught - we had a very nice Christmas. Also, Abigail's two top teeth did pop out before Christmas, too - so she got her two front teeth for Christmas. Mike really enjoyed that - he sang that song to her all week leading up to Christmas, hoping that they would pop through in time.

Abby is getting so big

Abigail is getting so big so fast!  She will probably have another tooth before Christmas.  She is crawling around all over the place and is starting to climb, too.  It is getting harder to get her to go to sleep in her bed because she stands up and cries…She seems to be thinking about how to get from Point A to Point B without a handrail, too.  I think that in another month, she might be walking.  Of course, I have thought that she would be doing this or doing that, or have teeth, before, and I was always wrong…we’ll see.

11/13/1993 - 12/07/07

This morning, I had to say goodbye to my puppy dog and good friend, Rio. I can't write much about him right now, but will try to tell a few stories about him later. He was the sweetest dog and he had a good life. Rest in peace, Rio.
