Stephen had to go on a business trip to Denver this week so my mom decided to come and visit! My parents still live in MS so we try to see each other once a month so Abby is able to spend time with them. That is probably the hardest part about living away from home.. not getting to see my parents and Abby not getting to spend time as much time with them as I would like. But,when they do see each other, we always have so much fun! We, of course, went on a TOY shopping spree and had a fun time at RAINFOREST CAFE!! Mom, thank you for coming to spend the week with us! We miss you already! WE love you and will see all of you next month!

Daddy Time!!!

When Stephen is not traveling, he has bathtime with Abby. I heard Stephen playing guitar and was wondering what he was doing! He was playing guitar for Abby and she loves it! Please excuse Abby and her naked self! I just thought this was too cute!!

GYMNASTICS PICS! (read post below pics)

WAY TO GO ABBY!!! Our little Gymnast!


Today was Abby's "show-off" class at THE LITTLE GYM. And best of all, DADDY got to go and watch! She has been attending gym class there since before she was 1. She has learned so much while being there. Her teacher, Coach Eric, is very patient with her and has spent alot time working Abby as well as with the group. He has his hands full with a room full of 2 year olds. Abby received her very first ribbon today. She was so excited.. She kept saying "Mommy! Daddy! look!!" Now she will move up to the next class next Tuesday!
I wanted to cry! Congratulations Abby on your very first Gymnastics ribbon. I hope this is the first of many!
The computer is acting funny so I will post pics later today!

Abby had two of her neighborhood friends over the other night. It is so funny because Abby is only 2, Aubrie is 4, and Taryn is 8! Abby just thinks they are great! We have SOOO Many kids in our neighborhood. There is always someone to play with! I just sit and laugh watching Abby try to act so big like everyone else. She is the youngest of all the kids on the block. Here is a pic of Abby with Aubrie and Taryn.

CHUCK E. CHEESE - Abby's Birthday

What a party!!!! We had so much fun at Chuck E Cheese today. Abby had her 2nd birthday and celebrated with about 30 of her friends and their families. Thanks to all of you who came. You made her birthday very special!!! It was so much fun!


Today was a big day for us! I can't believe my baby girl turned 2! Boy, how time flies! It is amazing to me that two years ago Abby was not due to come into this world until March 1, 2006, but she arrived 8 weeks early on January 5th, 2006. She weighed 4 pounds 4 ounces and was 17 inches long. Although she was very healthy, thank goodness, she was unable to come home from the hospital. She stayed in the NICU for a month before being able to come home! That was a tough time for all of us! Now look where we are! We are so blessed and I thank God everyday for my little princess! WE LOVE YOU ABBY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
