dude ranch

       my crazy family

my precious daddy

Abby fed the chipmunks

    Abby's sweet cousin Allie

We have been on vacation this past week in Colorado.  My family started going to a dude ranch called Deer Valley in the 1980s.  It is a White family tradition!  Of course, it was Abby's first time to go. She couldn't ride horses, fish, or go on the hay ride, but she had a great time going on 1 and 2 mile hikes attached to her mommy and feeding chipmunks!  She did a great job on the 12 hour DRIVE there AND back. We just got back tonight and she is already so happy to be in her bed....ME TOO!!!

10 months old!!!!!

Abigail is 10 months old today!  I honestly didn't think it would ever get here, but time has gone by so fast.   She is so precious to us.  The Lord has blessed this family!  Happy 10 months sweet girl!

you know you need a haircut when.....
 look like this!

Abby had her first haircut  yesterday and HATED every second of it.  She screamed the whole time (it took all of 3 minutes), and everyone left the store while we were there!  Good times!!!  She looks much better now and has recovered nicely.  Mercy this child!

swim lessons

Abby has LOVED swim lessons the past 2 weeks!  She had to miss a couple of days last week when she was sick, but we are back this week and she is having a blast!  I would be having more fun if the water was not SO cold.  It doesn't seem to bother her at all.  She splashes around and even sticks her head under the water.  We sing all kinds of songs and she "jumps" off the side of the pool to me.  She is going to be a little fish in no time!

pitiful baby

It's been a very long week around here.  Tuesday, Abby came down with a stomach bug. She has been running a fever and has been pretty pitiful.  She is also getting 4 new teeth.  We have had to miss swim lessons and just stay home!  It's been horrible!  However, I had to laugh out loud when I went to get her from one of her many naps and found her looking like this!  She still loves those bumpers - can you tell?

had to share

This is a picture that my friend Courtney took of Abby at the pool this weekend.  Courtney is an amazing photographer (check out her anthologie website).  I just had to share this great picture.  I apologize for Abby's hair...she needs a haircut already!

happy 4th of july

We had a quiet 4th of July after a very busy week!  Abby continues to crawl around and is even crawling on the hardwood floors now.  She is pulling up on things and loves the freedom to explore different things around the house.  

Today we went to a cookout at the Brown's house. The kids loved playing together, but once it was time to swim, Abby was not too sure about all of the "big" kids jumping and splashing all around her.  She enjoyed just watching from the side! Thanks, Browns, for a fun time as always!!

hanging with my cousin

Bo has been out of town this week, so his mom, sister and her son Charlie came up to keep us company.  Abby has had so much fun with all 3 of them.  She loves to watch Charlie go from one place to another.  He is such a busy boy!  They are having so much fun together.
