Anyway, a random man in the spray paint aisle came over to me just as Abby began crying in her stroller. Said man, leaned over to look at her and loudly proclaimed she was hungry. Excuse me, you have met my child for 5 seconds and you know she is hungry? Weird! I appreciate advice, but this man was too much. I thanked him and politely moved on. She had finished eating a mere 20 minutes before the incident.

Today when I was at the outlet mall she really liked being held facing outward to see the world so I told Marcus we needed to try it again. Today she liked it much better. Her head is still a little wobbly, but she can control it enough to ride in the front loader. Yea!
After running home to eat (still can't do that in public!), we went to the outlet mall and walked around. They are having some great specials. I bought 7 items and each was under $4. Cute stuff from Gymboree and Carters. I also bought Abby's coat for next winter- a cute kelly green peacoat from Baby Gap. I love all of the green stuff they have out this season. Super cute! If you have the money, now is the time to hit the outlet malls. They are hurting.
Aunt Nell is one of my all-time favorite people. My love of baking comes from her. There is always a fresh plate of something sweet on her table. At our family reunion, her baggies of peanut brittle sell for more than anything else!
Uncle Tom is the recipient of all that baking and has the coolest man cave with a big screen TV, a large collection of historical guns and other weapons, and his own beverage fridge. He had the man cave before the man cave was cool!
Before we left Kerrville, we visited my Aunt Vicki whom I have not seen in years. We used to spend weekends at her house and always had a blast. It was nice to let her meet Miss Abby Lu. Besides changing a diaper, I don't think I held Abby 5 minutes while in Vicki's prescence! She is always a kid's favorite!

I also recently checked out The Monogram Lady on Far West. Lots of fun gift ideas for babies and older girls. Plus, she can put your name or initials on anything! I went in there looking for a small diaper bag. Our big bag doesn't fit in the stroller slot at the bottom and I wanted a little one for short trips.

We had lunch with Cathy and her baby Connor (pictured) and Andrea and her daughter Abbie (not pictured). About 2 years ago, the three of us worked together at Keller Williams and about a year ago, we were a lunchtime party of 3 (sometimes 4 with Abbie). Today, we were a party of 6, almost seven if you count Andrea's unborn baby. It was fun to catch up and look at how much our lives have changed. If we were still at KW, we would be in Orlando right now at convention. I miss my KW friends, but it was nice to be at Jason's Deli on this day.
After lunch, I visited some friends at our church and then met up with Marcus, my Dad, and Jacque at home for pizza and a spontaneous Wii tournament. Dad and Jacque dueled it out in bowling and golf before trying out the Wii fit and learning how hard it is to ski.
All this milk is leading to a little weight gain and along with her length growing, we are about to outgrow my favorite newborn pajamas. I wish I had bought more of these polka dotted cuties at Target.
I think Abby looks like me in this picture... it is the big forehead and the cute ear sitcking out! Everywhere we go we are told she looks like Marcus or me, so she must just be a perfect combination of us both.
God made her pretty on the outside and my job is to make sure she is just as pretty on the inside. I hope to praise her for all of the wonderful virtues she possesses that she can control- being kind to others, respecting people, working hard, and being honest to herself and others.

She spent some time holding and feeding Abby. She always calls her Abigayle, which is cute. The formal name coming from a little person makes me smile.

Tiffany and I had a wonderful time hanging out on her couch and talking while eating Chick-fil-a. Abby ate and slept a little at Tiffany's house before deciding in the middle of a nasty diaper change that she wasn't done. Sorry about your couch Tiff!

She was so happy yesterday morning that I was able to do a photo session without a screaming fit photo to end it all. I captured lots of sweet girl photos this time around.
This time we ended the session because the bright flash was starting to effect her!
