Photo Shoot Again

Some friends of ours (Ted and Emily) came into town this last weekend because they were photographing a wedding. We were lucky enough to have Emily take some pictures of Abby. It was so much fun getting her pictures taken since her last photo shoot she was only a couple days old! Anyway, I just thought I would post a few while the others are still being worked on! :)

New Beginnings

Discovering her feet, and trying rice cereal. So far, she likes her feet better. Surprising, considering how she loves to eat! She just can't quite figure out how to swallow yet, but I know she'll figure it out soon, and then that will win! :)

Our Cat That Roams Freely

We have a cat, at least I think we do. We have had this cat for over a year now. He is not a typical indoor, cuddle on your lap type of cat. He LOVES to be outside. Ever since we have had him, we would always make a mad dash to get outside...hence his name is Dash. So when we moved here we decided to let him outside since we would be living here for awhile. (Last time we let him out where we lived, he didn't come back for over a week and we were just about to move.) So now he loves to be outside and all the neighborhood kids love to play with him. He has his name and my number on his tag, which we have received many calls from people thinking he was lost. Anyway he just loves to climb trees, chase birds, explore, anything outside. He comes back to eat and occasionally sleep at night. The other day he was outside of course and we were just getting back from somewhere. I could hear him meowing, but didn't think much of it. Phillip told me to come outside, and sure enough, he had climbed up our tree, onto our roof and of course could not figure out how to get down. I had no idea how we were doing to get him down since we do not have anything but a step stool. Luckily people across the way had been painting for new people to move in and had a ladder. So Phillip had to climb up and rescue the ever so curious cat. Anyway, I just thought it was silly. And as soon as Dash was on the safe ground again, he scurried away, and a couple minutes later was climbing up the tree again. Crazy cat!

Our cat when we first got him, mischeivous as ever....

Not sure how to get down????
Going up?
And running away....

The Wii

Phillip has been playing golf on the Wii for days now. His brother just had to tell him that he got nine under on the nine hole course. So...Phillip was determined to at least score the same. He would start playing as soon as he got home, and would play it while he fed Abby or whenever he could squeeze in a few games. If he didn't get a birdie on any one of the first few holes, he would start the game over. Anyway, one day I was upstairs getting ready, and he called me down because he had something to show me...

YAY!!! He finally got 9 under! Congrats Phillip!!!!!!!!!!!!
So he called his brother and told him the good news. A few hours later, his brother calls to tell him he got 10 under...and the quest continues....yay....hahaha

I can't believe it, but it's true! Abby already has two bottom teeth! They started to come in last week, and its official, they have both broken through her gums already! She's only 3 and a half months old, I guess she is trying to get to the real food faster! :)
