In need of....

So here is my pathetic plea for help in borrowing some things.
On March 13ish, my sister, my dog, my baby, and I will be making the 22 hour drive back to Utah, while dustun is gone to school I will be moving back to Utah, I will be here until the middle of June, he gets done with the first part of school the middle of May, but i was already planning on coming home the begging of June to see Travis graduate high school (wow that is weird to think about) and to watch the houses and business and animals while my family go on their cruise to Alaska, (can we say jealous?!)
Anyways back to my plea, I have no room in my car for Abigail big items, (swing, bouncer, jumper, ext. so I was thinking about how to have the things she likes/needs, and be cost effective to me, and I figure well basically everyone I know has kids, so I figure maybe I can borrow somethings for the few months I am there, then I don't have to try and pack, sell, ship or buy anything.
So if you or anyone you know, has some baby things, they are not using and wouldn't mind borrowing me let me know!
Thank you all so much!
And see youin a few weeks, yippy!

she found her fingers!

Abigail has her hands by her face, since day one, and the other night she is really understanding how to find her hand and put it in her mouth, she sucks on her fist, her thumb and her fingers, it is so cute! I love that when she is upset she can self soothe with her fingers rather then me putting her binky in her mouth every 3 seconds.

my late valentine post.

Here is miss Abigail in her valentines outfit.


I got her a doll for valentines day, and dustun got her a cute bear that is dressed up as a lady bug. Her Great grandma and Grandpa sent a card and a book.

Dustun got me a willow tree figure, that has the mom, dad, and baby, he also got me a card and some beautiful flowers.

This was Abigail first holiday, it was great except we burned the lasagna to a crispy black brick, so we went and got take out taco cabana, not really a nice romantic dinner, but we were all with each other, and the love is defiantly there.

Hope you had a great Valentines day.

2 weeks


Wow, it is amazing that our little bug is 2 weeks old, that time has flown by. She has changed so much, she is getting more alert everyday, when I nurse her she will grab my bra and hold onto it, she has also grabbed my hair and a necklace. She also has her eyes open more, she loves looking around at the things around her.

On February 8th, 2009 Abigail was given a name and blessing in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was really simple and nice, my dad had flown in for a few days, and since Dustun and I didn't know when we would be back home together, we figured we would bless her now, before he goes to school, and since dad was here, it was perfect. I wish we could have been home to have the entire family be there, but I think everyone understands.

This week Abigail also went on her first "blind" date, we went out to a restaurant with our friend who has a little boy, of course she slept threw her date.

She had her two week appointment, she is looking good, she has grown a whole inch, but her weight is not back to the birth weight, so the doctor wants to see us next week, I am going to continue to nurse, but I am also going to give her 1 2oz formula bottle to help her "bulk" up, then if her weight looks good next week then I will see if I want to keep the formula bottle on her menu. So speaking of nursing, man oh man that is hard work.

We had a party thrown in our honor, my friend thrown me a surprise baby shower party, it was so wonderful, there was lots of people from church, and some yummy snacks and desserts.

I have really enjoyed having her in our life's and I am so happy she is here, happy two weeks my baby girl.
