When we left the doctor, we bought whole milk and gave it to her for the first time at lunch. Here she is signing the word drink.
Like a champ, she has done well without a bottle at lunch or with her snack this afternoon. She really had weaned herself from the post-dinner bottle already.
Our kitchen counter looks so empty without the big bottle drying rack on it!

After breakfast and a short morning nap, we got dressed to go have some fun! While I got ready, Abby enjoyed a blow dry session. She loves a breeze in her face- blowing your breath on her, the wind, nasal aspirator, you name it!
Can you see the red in her hair? Weird, huh? It will be blond in the rest of the photos from the day.

Then, we met Marcus at Chick-fil-a for lunch. Abby had her first chicken nugget. She ate it all. I am certain had she not liked Chick-fil-a we would have had problems. She ate lots of Chick-fil-a before she was born! Marcus and I joked that it was my last meal while pregnant, one year ago today!

Marcus would guide her swing with a gentle push toward me and she would kick to try and touch me. It was great fun for us both!

Then, after Abby went to bed last night, I went to a cookie exchange at my friend Tabriah's house. There were 6 of us and 30 dozen cookies. Can you say sugar rush! We had the most fun chatting, avoiding saying the word "cookie" to win a prize, and eating holiday foods.

This is major- we can now eat out with her without packing a major bag of food.

We bought Cohen a sit-n-spin with my friend Meg's blog of great deals posted a coupon. We are convinced they aren't made to go as fast as they were. Or, kids these days play too many video games and don't know how to play right :) ha!
