In a pumpkin house

At the arboretum today there was a house made out of pumpkins. Ben and Abe check it out.

Snoozing in the stroller

We walk to school several mornings a week. Sometimes when we come back Abe is sleeping.

7 months old!

Bottom Sitter

The latest thing Abe can do.

He has something in his mouth!

"He has something white in his mouth!" Tommy said to me.
"Oh, you mean teeth?" I reply.
Tommy laughed.

First teeth: September 7, 2006

Abe eats.

He eats all kinds of vegetables now. He also enjoys chewing on biter biscuits, Gerber wagon wheels, cheetos, magazines, basically anything he can get his hands on.

He even likes chicken! Haha, just kidding, the chicken is fake.

He's so pretty!

Ok, I hope he doesn't get mad later, but his hair is so beautiful that I tried this bow on him. So many people ask me if he is a girl, no matter how much blue he is wearing.

I think he likes this better!

5 months old!

Here is Abe checking out his new Johnny Jump Up.

Abe cracks up!

First bite of cereal

Abe had his first bite of cereal on August 3. He still is not too sure of it. He clamps his mouth closed and I have to try to make him laugh so I can spoon some in.

Hawaiian Falls

We bought season passes to Hawaiian Falls waterpark this year. Abe tolerated the hat I made him wear.

The way Abe wakes up

Abe does not wake up crying the way some babies do. When I go in to check on him while he is napping, a lot of time he is just having a good time playing. Sometimes he plays with his lambs, other times his feet.

Nice hair!

A new skill.

Abe has figured out how to blow raspberries. He does it all the time now.

Kooshie bed

The kids sure love their kooshie pillows! They made a bed for Abe, complete with a kooshie stuffed animal.

A better way to pull hair.

Abe loves to pull hair! He doesn't pull his own anymore.

Three months old!

He doesn't seem too happy with the amount of cards!

Don't hate me because I'm cute!

When I'm out walking with Abe I notice people slowing down or changing their path so they can catch a glimpse of him. So far two people have told me he should be a baby model. While waiting for Ben at the dentist, the front office ladies were remarking how cute he is. Then I could hear some whispering and more ladies came from the back to look at him. Whenever I see other babies out, I look at them to see if they are cuter than Abe, and they aren't.

Sitting up (with help).

My Robot

I thought Abe looked so cute on David's lap. His outfit says "My Robot" on it, which I think is funny, but no one else does.

First trip to the zoo.

The boys and I went to the zoo on Memorial Day. Here we are taking a break in the reptile room.

A visit from grandparents.

Abe's Grandma Libby and Grandpa Joe visited over Memorial Day weekend.


Abe had his 2 month old Dr. visit and had to get 4 shots. It was the saddest thing. It is interesting to see how each of my kids has reacted to getting shots. Ben usually did not cry or cried only a little when getting shots, but was rather high strung at other times. Abe is very easy going most of the time, but screamed horribly and turned all red. He did not calm down easily either. He cried on the way home and at home. Of course I was unprepared and did not have baby Tylenol on hand, so I had to take him to the store. He took a nap, but woke up crying. I was afraid the Dr. broke him! But after another nap he actually woke up happier than ever. I was actually able to get the first photo of him smiling, and almost laughing. I did get my finger in the way a bit, but with babies there are no do overs.

Two months old!

The thinker

It's an honor

Abe is such an easy baby. It is not a chore to take care of him.
