I have a confession to make... I am a blogaholic. I check blogs far to many times a day.
Abby fell asleep... lets look at blogs and see if anyone has posted.
Abby is playing happily in her Intellitainer... lets look at blogs, someone must have posted something.
Bri comes home from work, takes Abby... lets look at blogs, maybe someone posted.
Sometimes Abby even checks out the blogs with me.

Is anyone else like this? or is it just me? I dunno... just thought it was time to confess.

And Bri is at band practice, Abby is sleeping, and I am bored. Maybe I'll go sew, I got a sewing machine for my birthday. Or maybe I'll go look at blogs.

Can't Sleep

It is 4:57am... I have been awake for over an hour. I can't sleep, and I have no idea why. I am exhausted, so why can't I sleep? I have never had this problem before! I am usually a very good sleeper! But after lying in bed awake for 45 minutes, listening to Bri "snore" (not really loud snoring, more like loud breathing) I decided to come upstairs and blog.

I set up Abby's Intellitainer and high chair this week, she is a little small for both, but I thought I would give it a try. She loves them. Yesterday she was even moving herself back and forth on the intellitainer (with a photo album under her feet, 'cause they don't touch the ground yet, and a blanket behind her back so she doesn't flop over).

She sat in her high chair and read her book while we played Settlers (Actually, Knights & Cities of Catan for you hardcores who know the difference) on Thursday, Bri won, again.

Ok, it is now 5:16, maybe I will try and go back to sleep...

3 months - a new doctor - rolling over

Miss Abigail will be 3 months old on Saturday. Time sure does fly! We went for her 3 month check-up today, she is 12 lbs 12 oz, 24" long. That is almost 5 lbs more and 5" more then the day she was born! We went to a new doctor, because our old doctor, the one who delivered Abby, is in St. Albert, so she referred us to one in Sherwood Park. She was nice, but I never like change. I really liked the old doctor, but I will give this one a chance. Abby was great, the appointment was during her nap time, but she was happy the whole time.
Abby rolled over for the first time yesterday! We were practicing rolling over, I would roll her back and forth, I rolled her onto her tummy and then let go, and she rolled onto her back all by herself! I was so excited, it might have just been a fluke, but still, I was excited! What a big girl, I am so proud of her.
I will leave you with some random Abby pics from the last few weeks:

Abby's 1st Hockey Game

Abby went to her first hockey game last night. Cousin Burke was playing, he is quite the hockey player. The game ended in a 5-5 tie, and Burke got 2 goals and 2 assists! We all think Burke will make it to the NHL one day. This past year he was drafted by the Spokane Chiefs, but was to young to play with them, hopefully next year! We are all looking forward to getting Gallimore jerseys! Abby was great! She loved the hockey game. Auntie Lynn had her for the 1st period and she slept the whole time, but then was wide awake with Cousin Courtney, Uncle Steve, Auntie Sue, and Grandad for the rest of the game! Uncle John and Great Grandad were also there! It was a great night! Here are some pictures, Burke is #15, he was the Captain last night.

Happy Birthday Pups!

Today is Bear & The Duke's 2nd Birthday!
I can't believe they are 2 years old already!
Happy Birthday guys! We love you!

Our Big Girl!

Our little girl is growing up so fast! She is 11 weeks old today! She even slept in her own room last night! She has been sleeping through the night for about 3 weeks, but because our bedrooms are in the basement, I wanted to get a heater for her room, so we finally got it, and now she can sleep in her room! She slept great last night, me, not so much! I was so worried, as I am sure most mothers are the first night their baby is in another room, it was hard, and I woke up every hour, but we survived!
I took her to get weighed today, 12lbs 6 oz, and she is 22 inches long, I think, the thing to measure her confuses me!
Here is a picture of her napping right now, in her own room!
She has also found her voice, she now laughs and talks to her toys all the time! I was trying to get a video on here of her talking, but I couldn't get it to work, maybe next time.
