Abby currently eats any of these foods- chicken, beef, peas, avocado, sweet potatoes, squash, banana, and apple. She also has rice cereal. She eats 2 T of rice and 2 T of a veggie each morning at school and at night has 3-4 T of any combination of a meat, veggie or fruit. She also drinks water from a sippy cup with her meals. She has 4 bottles per day and 1/2 of a middle of the night bottle daily. She isn't crawling or scooting yet. She is vocal- saying mamamama or screaming for fun! I wouldn't count her babble as a first word yet. She is wearing 6-12 months clothes and her newborn shoes! She wears a size 3 diaper.
She is the lights of our lives and we are so excited to continue watching her grow! Here is a look back at her birthday months.
I did learn Marcus does not like squash tonight. I have him taste the food before we serve it to her and tonight I just gave him a spoonful on the back porch while they were playing in the pool. He made a nasty face and spit it out- I had no idea he didn't like squash.

I loved holding his sweet little fuzzt body today on my lunch hour. It just makes those crazy afternoon meetings seem so much less important.
This is Baby #3 of 4 in our circle of friends for this month. We are awaiting baby Kaylinn any day now!

I stayed home to make sure Abby Lu didn't leave any germs with Addison. I remember that feeling!
Congrats Carrie and Brian! Addison is just beautiful. We hope she eats, sleeps and poops well :)
After VBS was over, we had a yummy lunch at Alison's house and let the kids play together. Four kids under the age of 6 was fun to watch. It was like constantly counting to 4 to make sure everyone was accounted for. Gus and Georgia were moving all about, so we didn't get a goob picture of the group, but here is Georgia helping me push Abby to our car.

Sunday night we introduced peas. This was, by far, the most she has eaten of a new food to date. She ate them all and Marcus ended up feeding her a second serving. She preferred the peas over the applesauce. Peas will be very easy to make for her- bag of frozen peas, steamed and blended in my Baby Cook. No chopping necessary! Sunday at lunch we also gave her a baby Mum Mum. A physician told me about them at the party Saturday night. His daughter is 7 months old and she was eating one. They gave me a cracker for Abby to try. It is made of rice and flour and is much like her rice cereal. She did a great job chewing on it and ate almost all of it. She isn't so good with the puffs or dried fruit pieces yet since they are so small, but these work well. I need to go to Wal-Mart to find some for her.
Is this not the cutest face you've ever seen?
Seriously, I did have an event at Cowboys Stadium this weekend and we paid to have cheerleaders there for photos and autographs. I have autographed pics for Abby's scrapbook and Kyleigh. I opted to take my pic with the bartenders- the one on the left looks just like Michael Crabtree who played for Texas Tech. He said he gets that often. The one on the right just wanted in the picture. I told him he didn't look like anyone famous and he laughed and during the picture kept rattling off men he could look like- Mike Tyson, George Foreman, etc. I was so excited to have my sweet baby girl at the party with me. She wore a cute pink and brown football outfit I made for her. No cowboys gear in this house! My "60" shirt is for our company's 60th anniversary meeting.
During my meeting this week, our Saturday night party was in a suite at the new Cowboys Stadium. We were practically on the field. The suite will be used during games as the restaurant/bar/lounge with people who bought a private suite. Those privates suites start at over 1 million dollars and that does not include tickets! Goodness! Here are some pics of the suite set for our party.
Thank you again to Tabriah for sharing Keirsten and Kaylinn's pod with us!
This is the welcome area that transitioned from registration to the exhibit hall. We had about 70 companies inside the hall selling vitamins, medical supplies, textbooks, staffing services and more!

Thursday Abby, Daddy and our friend Bill and his daughter Mackenzie went swimming. It is hard work for our baby girl to stay up past 6:30, especially when swimming action is involved. I can just smell her in this picture.Finally, today's pic featured the carpet of our pediatrician's waiting room! Apparently Abby Lu has a bad ear infection which has led to a rash. I didn't know those went together. I don't think she noticed the ear infection at all, so we had no idea. So much to learn! I'll see my baby girl tomorrow and can't wait!
