We got a new tub today because Abby wasn't happy just laying down in the other tub. She would fuss until I helped her sit in the tub. So we got a tub she could sit in and I could be a little less worried about her losing her balance and hurting her head. I think she liked it. Although she is still more interested in the wash cloth than splashing in the tub. Oh well at least I don't get wet right?

We tried a new way to eat today. I got Abby a mesh feeder at Target. I put a piece of pear in it today. She didn't know what to make of it at first. She usually puts everything in her mouth but she didn't expect the pear flavor. After she chewed on it for a minute and really started to get the juices she loved it. Then we had some pear baby food.

But at least I have a happy baby so far! If what I see is what I think it is we have two teeth about to come through. We've been chewing a whole lot (occassionally trying to on mommy but that stops quickly!) but not fussing anymore than normal. I hope this continues and that I have a happy teether. Now I'm scared of biting! SHE'S GROWING UP TOO FAST!

Abby has really been trying to get up on all fours lately. It doesn't last long and she doesn't fully get up but it doesn't look like crawling is that far away if she continues to go at the rate she's been going. She went from rolling over back to belly to getting up on all fours in two weeks. So any bets on when she'll crawl?
Oh and for the grandmas at what age did Beau and I crawl? What about teeth? And favorite foods?
We made carrots and pears today. I had been snacking on the carrots and pears and only had enough to make one feeding of carrots and three of pears but its a start on more new foods. I also got her some sippy cups with straws and they are working better. Her shirt doesn't get as soaked and she can get more liquid since she doesn't have to tip it. I am also going to get her a mesh feeder so she can gum some peas/pears/apples/melon/sweet potato ice cudes ect. This will probably come in helpful when she actually starts teething!
I'm debating on the whole high chair thing right now. My only requirement is that the fabric is plastic! There are ones that attach to a chair or that stand alone... too many to choose from!

We went and worked in the nursery tonight and didn't have anyone to watch for the first hour so we played on the floor. Apparently the Church toys are more fun because we played on our tummy and rolled around for over 45 minutes! Then we moved to the baby room, exercausered then took a nap. When we got home, Daddy was already home and watching the Colts/Patriots game and Abby sat with Daddy and cheered. She got really excited and flapped her arms a lot hitting Daddy. It was so funny, we started laughing at her and she joined in laughing too!

We went to Church this morning and I didn't have to work in the nursery so we got there and I topped Abby off and went into the service. Abby wasn't having it though.... as soon as Bro. Tommy started preaching, her number came up on the screen. So we spent the rest of the sermon in the cry room (eating/playing/trying to listen to the speaker). This is what happened on the way home though.

Honey and Abby had a staring contest yesterday. It was pretty cute. Abby loves to look at Honey, especially when Honey is being silly. It's going to be fun to see Abby chase after Honey once she starts moving around. Abby likes Coco too (and Coco constantly wants to see her as well) but Coco wants to be right up in Abby's face while Honey still keeps her distance most of the time. Other than a few close sniffs this is the closest Honey gets to Abby.

Pops came to visit and we were a little clingy to mommy at first but we warmed and and even gave him some giggles (and tried to steal his rolls during dinner!)
She sat like a big girl in a high chair during dinner but I didn't have my camera with it (it was charging at home) but we'll get pictures next time!

We went to TJ's for dinner with Mimi and Pappy and she went crazy when the food got to our table... her toys were no longer entertaining enough so she chewed on mommy's finger while I ate. She really wanted to eat too! Maybe because she was being a big girl and sitting in a high chair. I put a blanket behind her to keep her more supported but she was able to sit in it while I ate. So we came home and after waking up for our car seat nap.... We tried bananas..... and she LOVED them. There are her favorite so far! She kept opening her mouth like a little birdie. It was so cute! I had some ripe bananas so she got them fresh but now we have a whole thing of ice cubes of them in the freezer and three "to-go" containers. Still just as messy though. Sorry I don't have any pictures since I can't feed her and take pictures at the same time (and eat kumquats - which were very yummy!).

Abby relaxed this morning and watched Sesame Street while I got dressed, made our bed and folded the laundry.
Normally I'll talk to her while I do these things but today neither of us slept well last night (up every 2 hours to eat - maybe the 6 month growth spurt?) and she wasn't happy just chatting.

Abby is in a particularly clingy mood today. I guess part of that is probably due to actually being away from her for all of class today (Tuesday it was going over the syllabus, what book we needed ect. see you Thursday) but even Daddy wouldn't do earlier... only Mommy holds her the right way today. Even her toys aren't entertaining enough. I'm enjoying my cuddles though!

Consumer Reports has retracted their study about infant seats. So the car seat techs were right and we'll keep using her seat as she seems to have finally gotten over the crying in it. So we'll wait and see what their new study they are promising says and wait a little longer before paying a whole lot for a new seat if the one she has is still considered safe by all the car seat techs. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16691288 http://www.nhtsa.gov/portal/site/nhtsa/template.MAXIMIZE/menuitem.9fa154a4d39f02e770f6df1020008a0c/?javax.portlet.tpst=4670b93a0b088a006bc1d6b760008a0c_ws_MX&javax.portlet.prp_4670b93a0b088a006bc1d6b760008a0c_viewID=detail_view&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=token&javax.portlet.prp_eae585bbdaea7ba067bfa9f990008a0c_viewID=MY_PORTAL_VIEW&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=token&itemID=0c82d6d18d030110VgnVCM1000002c567798RCRD&overrideViewName=PressRelease

I found a new website that Abby loves and it even made her laugh. I'm afraid I've created a monster that will never let me near the computer again without her getting her playtime. www.kneebouncers.com She even giggled for me which she doesn't do very often. She'll giggle for Daddy but not for Mommy. Apparently mommy isn't very funny anymore.
Now I need a drool guard for the computer!

Abby was so cute with her Daddy tonight. All she wanted to do was grab at his face and eat him up. She tried to eat his check, nose and glasses. She does this to me a little but more so wanting to grab my hair. (Ouch!) Here is a video of her "attacking" Daddy.
I'm sad that I have to go back to school tomorrow. I don't wanna! I'll miss my little girl. :(

We tried sweet potatoes tonight! She seemed to really like them although I think that Honey liked them more :) She really wanted to clean the baby while Abby was eating. Today was a little less messy although I'm not sure if she got more in her mouth or if Honey just kept her clean enough to not make such a big mess.
