We heard the sound of the ice cream truck approaching and sprung into action.  Abigail grabbed her money jar, and we ran out to catch it.  We had to chase it down, and she bought a bubble gum snow cone with her money.  When we got home, she split her snow cone in two and gave half to Ellie.  Then they went out and hopped in the freshly filled kiddie pool, naked.  Doesn't get much better than that.

The Doc is In

We are solving America's Healthcare issues one child at a time. Grooming the next generation of doctors.  They are never too young.

**Disclaimer: She is wearing a diaper, even though it is not visible under all of those rolls**

Turning Five, something worth celebrating

Abigail had her 5th birthday last week.  It was a big one.  Charles said I went overboard... I told him to shut it ;) Her party request was for a mermaid swimming party, and thats just what we did.  It was perfect.  Everyone swam and had fun, and there is nothing that Abigail loves more that swimming in the summertime sun.  The weather was really nice too, so it wasn't too hot for those of us who didn't dive in.  We played a couple of games at Abigail's request: Sea horse races (on pool noodles), and a seashell hunt in the mermaid lagoon.  That was just enough organization and the rest of the time they just played and swam in the water and I got to catch up with a few friends that we haven't seen in a while. Her actual birthday was Sunday, so we kept it pretty low key.  We had the missionaries over for dinner and she loved that.

Since she was up way to early to get breakfast in bed, she requested lunch in bed instead.

7 Months Old

I can't keep up with this girl.  She is getting so big.  Breaking my back with all those rolls :) It will be a big day when she is strong enough to move that her little tank around and start crawling.  She (...we) has had a really rough month. Lots of teething I suppose.  Her sleeping has been really off. Bad naps, and up a few times at night.  Makes for a sleepy mom and dad.  I think she is coming out of it now though. We are giving those amber teething necklaces a try. I'm skeptical, but willing to try just about anything. I love all of her squishy rolls, and I love her little nose and lips. She just couldn't get any cuter.

Six Months Old

Our Hallie is growing up too fast, but she has to keep up with her sisters!
She is six months old now.  
She rolls all over the place.
She sits up.
She eats.
A lot.
She loves her baby food and is getting tired of formula.
She is a pudgy 20 lbs and we love it.
She drools more than a Saint Bernard.
She loves playing with her toys.
She is in a sleeping funk. Not fun.
No teeth.

Can't believe she is halfway to ONE.
