running wild and meeting a new friend

Today was the first day this week that it has been pretty outside.  Abby was literally clawing at the door to get out of the house.  We walked down to the neighborhood lake and fed the ducks. Abby just ran around wild.  It was so good to be outside this afternoon!

Abby also met a new friend today!  My friend brought her precious 3 month old son over to visit today.  Abby loved pointing and saying "baby" the whole time he was here.  She did not love me holding him.  However, we loved seeing them today and meeting baby Grayson!  He is precious and we can't wait to see them again.

I know that pictures of your kid sleeping aren't as cute to anyone else, but I thought this was too funny.  I had to post it.

mother of three

The past 2 days, I have been a mother of three!  Eddie and Sophia H. spent Monday and Tuesday with Abby and me.  The weather was gross, but we made the best out of it.  Abby was truly entertained by the 2 of them and they all got along pretty well.  The hardest part was feeding all three "starving" children at the same time!  Abby was pulling on my leg and crying while the other 2 were trying to decide what they wanted to eat.  The other difficult part was nap time.  Bo was home both mornings to help with that, so that saved me!   Overall it was a good 2 days, but I am tired and in no rush to have that many kids...sorry Mom!

my new niece!!!

Emerson Grace Goodman was born yesterday at 7:45 in the morning!  She is 7 pounds, 14 oz.  and is just beautiful!  She is in the NICU because she cannot regulate her oxygen level on her own.  When she is calm, she is just fine, but when she gets upset or worked up she has trouble. Tests run on her heart and lungs look good.  Please pray for her and for Liz and Chad.  Liz has not been able to hold her sweet girl yet and is anxious to do so!!  

Harper is doing better.  She is showing a little improvement.  Praise the Lord!!  Please continue to keep her in your prayers as well.

The Lord has a plan for both of these precious little girls.  I can't wait to see what HE has in store for them BOTH!!!

fun weekend

The weather was gorgeous this past weekend so we took full advantage of it.  Bo and I took Abby to the zoo for the first time.  She loved all the animals and had fun barking at most of them.   She also turned 16 months old on Sunday.  I literally can't believe how fast the time has gone.  We tried to get her picture on the puppy, but she will not sit still long enough for that!  

On a different note, please keep praying for my sister's friend Kelly and her sweet baby Harper.  You can check Kelly's blog for updates, but this sweet family needs our prayers right now.

who needs a chair?

Today when I was doing something in the kitchen, Abby was playing in the den.  It got really quiet and when I looked to see what she was doing, I found her in this box!   She was just sitting there watching tv.  I ran to grab my camera. She is at a hard age to take pictures because she grabs at the camera and wants to see herself after a picture is taken.  I was lucky to get these!!

abby and elmo

Elmo Live was one of Abby's Christmas presents and she LOVES to dance with Elmo.  It is hilarious.  She gets quite upset when the song ends and plays it over and over.  She is a pretty funny little thing!
