11 Months Old

Well it has been a crappy week, but I am not going to get into it. There has been some good things this week too, and I've decided that I am going to try and focus on the good things.
Abby turned 11 months old yesterday. I can't believe how fast she is growing up! I weighed her yesterday, 17lbs 15.5oz. So she is pretty much an 18 pounder! And she was 28". She is finally moving up the percentile chart for weight, I am so happy about that! She has done so well at the dayhome this week too. She has tried all kinds of new foods, made some new friends and loves going to the dayhome, so that is making it a little easier on me!

That is it from Gallitown, hopefully next week will be better than this one.

If you need a laugh, watch this video from July, the funny part is at the end.

Sad Day

Abby was at the dayhome for the full day today, and she did great. I was supposed to be studying all day, but I got a sad phone call in the morning, and I wasn't able to study after that.

Dodger died last night. He was only 10 years old, and he wasn't sick, so it is quite a shock. He had a heart attack. He was on mum and dad's bed with them, his favorite place to be, and it happened so quickly and he didn't suffer. But still, quite a sad day. I just wish I was there for my parents, I just want to give them a hug. Dodger was a huge part of our family, and he will be missed a lot. I still can't believe he is gone.

Bri's grandad also had a heart attack on Saturday, he is still in the hospital, but he is in good spirits. They are still doing some tests to see exactly what is going on. We've taken Abby to see him twice now, he just can't get enough of her. The smile on his face when he sees her is priceless.

Anyway, it has been quite a week already. Please keep both of our families in your prayers. Thanks.

I guess I've always wanted an Elephant

So change of plans, Abby is now going to be an Elephant for halloween. I had to post the pictures of the monkey for you though, 'cause she looked so cute in the costume!

We've had a busy week, I'm glad it is the weekend, and I am really not looking forward to monday, but it has to happen sometime, right?
Abby and I took Mike out for lunch on Thursday for his birthday.
We were able to spend some time with Tucker (who has a broken leg, poor guy)

and also met Push-Bin-Der. He is huge. The pictures don't do him justice.

Anyway, I've had quite the day, and don't have much more to say.

Have a great weekend!

Haven't you always wanted a monkey?

Not much to report in Gallitown today. Abby is still growing. I got her a halloween costume today. Our little Monkey will be a Monkey for halloween, and she looks so darn cute in the costume. I was going to post a pic, but I'll save it until halloween.
Life is starting to get busy again. Bri is taking a course on Thursday nights, it starts this week. I'm trying to study for my course that is in 2 weeks, and Abby starts part-time at the dayhome next week, I can't believe my year is over already!

And Abby just wanted to wish her Uncle Mike a Happy Birthday, even though he says he never reads the blog, maybe he will today. Happy Birthday Mike! We love you!

We went to IKEA on Friday night, Abs was tired from walking around so she had to take a break!

Big Girl

We had a great time in Calgary this past weekend, Thanks Kirst!
It was great to hang out, and Abby loved playing with Taylor and especially Quinten.

And she loved playing with their Toys!

We quickly discovered that it is time to get Abby some Big Girl toys. So we got her this walker/ride-on thing, and she loves it and she was even walking along behind it!

She is growing up so fast. She even climbed the stairs today! She just motored up them! (sorry, no pictures of it, I was to busy video-taping and Bri was spotting her) I've been weighing her weekly now, just to make sure she is gaining, and she was 17lbs 9oz today, so I think we are back on track as far as gaining weight goes!

Bri is giving Abs a bath right now, while I am blogging, it is so cute!

Have a great night everyone!
