All better now!

Abigail is feeling much better now. Hopefully she stays that way for a very long time. A sick baby makes for a tired and worried Mommy and Daddy. But she's back to her normal self.
She's grown up so much in the last few weeks. She's really starting to develop her hand skills. She holds things and bring them to her mouth. She pushes stuff away. She about 2 cm from rolling over from her back to her stomach. She's "talking" more and more. And she's no longer wobbley in her Bumbo. She sits and watches Tommy cook dinner for 30-40 minutes in the Bumbo and doesn't get tired. We started trying out her exersaucer a few days ago and she LOVES it!

She's focused on those monkeys.
Such big eyes!

Sleepy head! She only sleeps 1-2 hours all day when she's at daycare so she comes home and sleeps all afternoon and all weekend. She's just so curious and nosey at daycare that she doesn't want to sleep. She's afraid she might miss something.

She found a new friend. She loves this rabbit blankie.
And she loves her fingers.

This is a dress my mom made for her. She's such a ham for the camera.

Poor Abigail is sick again. This time the doctor thinks it is allergies. So she's on breathing treatments now. A few days before she turned 2 months old she got sick with a cold and an ear infection. Well two ago she got the same thing, a cold and an ear infection. She finally got over the ear infection and now she has a pretty bad cough. So we went to the doctor on Friday and found out it's allergies. I hope this ends soon. The doctor also prescribed a 5 day treatment of steriods. She started the 1st day today and I think it's making her really really cranky. I could barely put her down all afternoon. I know this isn't my fault but I can't help but think of what I could have done differently to keep her from getting sick. I always thought that if I breastfed then she wouldn't be sick as often. WRONG. I'm really ready to start transitioning her to formula but I know this would be a horrible time.

I'm just ready for my little girl to feel better.

3 months and catching up!

Warning....Picture overload!! I'm trying to catch up on the blog for the last 2 weeks.

Abigail's 3 months picture.

Before we get into the rest of the pictures. Here is her 3 month stats:
-size 2 diapers
-I already miss her being tiny. She’s growing so fast and developing new skills every day.
-She's still taking 5 ounces every 3 hours and sleeping from 8:30-6
-She wears 3 months and some 3-6 month clothes. If it has feet on it it has to be 3-6 month, she’s just so long.
-She is very very nosey. She’s only been sleeping 1.5-2.5 hours at daycare ALL DAY. She just has to watch all of the other kids and she’s afraid she’s going to miss out on something.
-She takes a pacifier to go to sleep for naps during the day. She used to get pissed when she would lose the pacifier but now she just sucks on her fist until we put it back.
-She has started to click her tongue back at us. If she hears one of us doing it she will smile then start clicking back. Its so cute!
-She’s starting to get a little bald spot on the back of her head. When we lay her down to sleep and she’s not fully asleep yet she will shake her head from side to side.
_She LOVES watching TV. If its on and she’s eating she will lock into the TV and sometimes stop eating. We’ve had to turn off the TV a few times just to get her to finish eating.
-She loves sitting in the corner of the recliner. You'll notice that in most of the pictures.
-She's really starting to get interested in her hands and stare at them.
-She has been staring and analyzing her feet. I’m sure they will be making their way into her mouth very soon.
-She's starting to bat her hands at things
-smiling and cooing more and more. She even gets a little loud at times and tries to talk to us.
-she can tolerate tummy time for a few minutes and she’s up on her elbows and picking her head up very high. It won’t be long before she’s rolling over.
-She loves her room. When we bring her in her room she stares around at the walls and she loves her tree painted on her wall.
-She loves the Bumbo.
-loves listening to music. We usually turn up the radio in the morning while we are getting her dressed.
Now for all of the pictures.

I just happen to catch this one. So funny!

When did this kid grow up??? She already acts like she wants to crawl.

We've been doing alot of this the past 2 weeks. First Daddy was sick with a stomach virus then Abigail got sick with ANOTHER cold which led to ANOTHER ear infection which you couldn't tell because she was laughing and smiling all of the time.

Poor thing, she is much better now.

She's doing pretty good at tummy time. She can usually last about 15 minutes before she gets upset.

And she's picking up her head pretty high

We've been playing dress up. Check out those crystal blue eyes. Daddy is going to have to fight the boys off of her in a few years.

We've even played in the jewelry box.

So cute with her little double chin.

And of course we had to try on the LSU outfit.

This makes my day every morning!
