my baby is longer than your baby!

My baby is longer than your baby! I have the longest two month old on record at the doctor's office. Here is how it happened:

Yesterday was Abi's mirthday and today was her doctor's appointment. She weighs 11 pounds and 2.5 ounces. The nurse enters 11 pounds into the computer. HUH. She is measured. I don't pay all that much attention here but somehow 39 inches is what is entered into the computer. That is a rather miraculous jump of 19 inches from her birth length!

In other news she is darling! Here she is smiling with her mirthday bear. Lydia is in the corner making her smile...

Abi's blessing

Abi was blessed yesterday. We were sad that Chris' parents couldn't come, but they had so much snow it was literally impossible. We are SO used to dealing with snow, but there was enough that church was canceled in some places. The blessing was wonderful. Our little Abi was so wiggly she tried to roll right off their hands. I was blissfully unaware of that until I overheard something in the halls.

All in all it was a beautiful day.






Did I want a better picture? OH YES! Did I lose that battle...actually I retreated, figuring I was up against impossible odds. Ben (4) had already taken his pants off and was only in the picture because dad was holding him. Someone had given becca candy at church ..who gives a 2yo candy without talking to the mother? Raymond needed to be wrestled by his dad (and fed). Kalani would have sat there all day holding Abi, but the baby needed mom...so yep I retreated!
