Abigail is now 5 months old! Here are some fun facts about her:
  • Abby is 17 lbs and 25 inches long
  • Abby loves to jibber jabber in her bed when she's supposed to be sleeping.
  • She loves to laugh and has a sweet little smile.
  • She loves to play with her feet.
  • She's finally rolling over.
  • Abby can sit up for 20+ seconds unsupported, and especially if she's sitting on our lap.
  • She's awesome at grabbing things.
  • Abby's been teething off and on now for about a week and a half. She slobbers like crazy and by the time her naps are done she's swimming her a puddle of saliva.
We love Miss. Abigail. Sometimes being a parent is hard and frustrating (I know, I know, it'll only get worse as she gets older) and sometimes I catch myself thinking "Why didn't we just wait a little longer" when I feel like Paul and I have no a lone time. But then Abby does something totally cute or just flashes her big toothless grin and I realize how blessed we are to have this sweetie in our lives! I honestly wouldn't change a thing and I feel like Abby came into our lives at the perfect time.
Abs is such a blessing to our family and we are learning more and more each day. I couldn't have asked for a better baby. She's as awesome as they come :)
Since she's been teething, she's been sucking on her bottom lip like this constantly. She's pretty cute :)

I don't think it gets harder, it just gets different! Having an infant or toddler is challenging! So is having bigger kids. There are parts of the baby stage that I miss though! But it is also nice having them independent sometimes. :) I need to notice more of the "smiles" they do, though, and enjoy having them at this age too! Thanks for the reminder!!
