Dr. Martino

Abby was a good little patient

We decided taking her temperature under her arm was a better idea

4 months

Abigail turned 4 months on Thursday. She had a doctors apt. that day and turns out to be just a tiny thing. She's 11 lbs. 4 oz. and 23 in long. Those are the exact measurements that Gracie was at 4 months. The doctor was a little concerned just because she dropped from the 50th percentile down to the 5th percentile in 2 months. I think it's because she spits up so much and maybe my milk supply is low. (I partially think they might have weighed her wrong at 2 months.) We are supplementing with soy formula and have another apt. this coming Thursday to see how she's doing. I'm not too concerned. Otherwise she is our happy, smiley baby. I can't believe how much she interacts with us. She's been loving sitting in her boppy and playing under her wiggle worm and mega saucer. We've love Abby so much! Don't worry, she won't be wearing that flower bow again until her head's bigger. If she's not sucking on her passy, she's trying to eat her fingers and hands.

Lake House and Messy Party

This past weekend we went with Ben's family on the annual trip to the lake house. It was a short last minute decision, but we were glad it all worked out. We all had a lot of fun, but I think Gracie had the most. She jumped off the dock, road the wave runners, and tubed behind the boat (she even got knocked off the tube and insisted laughing for more. I didn't get many pictures because we were having too much fun.

We sure are going to miss Nana and Pop when they move to Guatemala.

We sure missed Kim and Jason and their 4 kids.

On Monday, one of Gracie's friends through a "messy party". She had a great time playing in pudding, jello, whipped cream, noodles, spraying dye on a sheet, and much more. It was such a fun idea and the kids loved getting messy.
Of course she had to try the pudding.

I love these Girls!

The conversations during these pictures:
Gracie:" Mama, I love Abs" (her new nickname Gracie's given her)
Me:"That's sweet, I love her too! And I love Gracie. I bet Abby loves Gracie too."
Gracie: "No, Abs loves Mommy, because you have the nulk (milk)"

Potty Training

Today marks potty training day 2. Gracie has never gone pee-pee in the potty because she's been a little nervous. Yesterday I decided was the day to start and after about 10 minutes of reading stories on the potty she went. We couldn't believe she went. We had a few accidents of course, but overall she did very good for her first day. She even came up and told me a number of times she had to go and was very excited. We celebrated by going to get ice-cream last night with Daddy. She looks so big and cute in her panties. I already think we need to go up a size in panties with that big booty she has. Hopefully the rest of this week goes well. I'm not looking forward to being home bound, but I am definitely looking forward to having a potty trained girl. What a big girl I have.

4th of July

We had a great 4th of July with Ben's family. There was a big family reunion that weekend with Ben's Granddad's side of the family. We loved having all of Ben's siblings together. Gracie especially loved her cousin Spencer. We enjoyed swimming, sail boating, go-cart, eating, playing, and just being together. Gracie had a lot of fun doing sparklers and poppers and thought the fireworks were so pretty. It was nice being out on the Ranch, because we got to do our own fire works and I think the boys had a fun time setting them off.
