Christmas wish list.

I have gotten a few people asking what I, Dustun and Abigail would like for Christmas, so I figured to answer everyone at once, I would post our wish list on here.

For Dustun and I we really don't want or need anything, well maybe to fly home! Or maybe just some home cooked items, mmm
For Abigail she is the clothing size 12 months it is a bit big on her but she will grow into it, so don't get anything really Christmas print, for I am afraid she will never get a chance to wear it.
I buy her Shakelee baby, shampoo and lotion, and I can never have to much on hand.
Her shoe size is a 2, but she can wear a 3 but they sometimes fall off, I would like some nice white church shoes, and or some go with everything color shoes.
She only has one Sunday dress in a 12 month size, and 2 PJ's in 12 moth so she can always uses more.
Socks are always good for the sock monster LOVES her socks. And tights, they also dis-aper.
Any cute size 12 month clothing would be great. We do have cooler days, so long sleeve is fine, but please no snowsuits!
As far as toys, anything that would encourage her to crawl or walk or stand, would be great.
We own a bunch of baby Einstein videos, so I don't need anymore of them, but she loves sesame street.
She loves books, board books, pop up books, fabric book, any kind of books.
Of course these are just suggestions, Abigail loves anything given to her! And so do Dustun and I
oh cant for get bandit, he loves, milk bones and anything that squeaks.

I hope this gives you some ideas. Love to all.


Fashion show for Abigail

Her first tutu, I made it the other day, she looks like a fairy, fluffy, princess. She didnt mind it on, but she kept reaching down and grabbing the tulle to eat it, mmmm.

This was my dress when I was little, mom had saved it. And when Abigail arrived it was hers, she is sure cute in it, I need to get a copy to my mom so she can put it side by side with me in the dress.

This is one of Abigails Sunday dress. Her Great Grandma Joyce bought it for her long before Abigail was even a Kumquat (lol) It is so pink and fluffy, hard to believe but it the first one!


Our house.

Finally pictures of the house! It is a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath with a a loft, it is about 400 sq feet bigger then our last house, we have changed wards, and are closer to base, so far it is a good house. But I am astilling keeping my fingers crossed for Colorado to become open.

Dustun in his loft/office

our back patio, needs some seating, i am always sitting on the stairs talking on my phone.
our view, I love that we don't look in to our back neighbors windows, although the strays dogs, pigs and bugs, kinda suck.
kitchen I wish it had more counter and cupboards, but it works.

Front room looking to the kitchen and dining room

laundry room/pantry around the comer.

9 months old

Wow can it be that she is already 9 months old, I swear she was just born, I swear we just had her 6 month party, where oh where has my baby and the time gone? Before I know it she will be going to prom, and married and having babies of her own, (notice how I missed all the scream, fights, and other "fun" things that will happen when she gets older)
We went to the doctor, her weight and height are good, still on the small side but well with in the healthy range. And of course they ask if the "big" head is normal, I proudly say yes, she is very smart, and her daddy and uncle both had big heads that they grew into. They have a check list they go through to make sure she is developmentally where or about where she should be: I wrote in italics and bold
  • During this period your baby will probably learn to creep, crawl and otherwise get around the room. He or she may even pull up in the bed or on furniture and begin "cruising" around the room. * she has been moving for a while, but never in a way that you can say she was crawling but on 11-9-09 she made the first official crawling motions! and we had to lower the bed to the lowest setting cause she was pulling up in the crib.
  • Responds to his or her own name.*she has done that for a while, and it is cute cause she even pretends not to hear you, she will have a smile but not look at you and if you move in her sight she moves her head, what a funny girl.
  • Understands a few words such as "no-no" and "bye-bye." *We have been trying to work on those, but I rarely ever have to say no-no to her.
  • Begins developing certain concepts - for example, your child will retrieve a toy after he or she watched you put it under a blanket. *oh yes she is always looking for things we hide, usually the things she is not suppose to have :)
  • May say "dada" or "mama" but not specifically. *I cant say she does say these, she does say what sounds like mama but only if she is upset, hungry or tired.
  • Sits well independently. * has been sitting for a while
  • Bangs two toys together.* yes and yes! I give her measuring spoons to play with in her high chair, she could be drummer!
  • Plays interactive games well such as peek-a-boo and pat-a-cake.* she loves to play peek-a-boo, she puts anything over her head then pulls it off and smiles, loves it!
  • Perhaps the most striking developmental achievement is the use of fingers and thumb to poke, pry, probe and pick up smaller and smaller objects.* she loves finger foods, she eats well pretty much anything, we eat only in smaller bites.
  • Sleeps through the night except for an occasional night wakening.*always has!
  • The 9-month-old has now learned to be "cool" or even a little afraid of certain strangers - even family members he or she does not see very often. The baby of this age also begins to take a dim view of being examined by their doctor. *she never really experienced the separation/stranger anxiety.
  • Often has one or both bottom front teeth.*Yep she has two bottom teeth, they came in he week we moved in to the house, thank goodness it wasn't while we were driving, she was not a happy camper.
I am so proud of her, I cant believe she is growing up so fast. I love you Abigail.


Halloween Pictures from Jcpenny

She was a lady bug for Halloween this year. We went to JcPenny to get her pictures done, they turned out so cute, she hams it up every time she is on front of the camera, I am hoping she always is so good.

Sorry the pictures look kinda scratchy and maybe a bit, lopsided, I had to scan them in, shhh.


So cute.

Her are some pictures of Abigail eating, in case you cant tell she has a hard time opening her mouth to eat, NOT!

Trick or treating.

Her first sucker, she loved it, but she was a blue slobbery drooly mess, but i do love her just as much, well maybe a little more.

This was such a creepy clown.
HaHa, I concur

We went with a group of friends, we had a pot luck with lots of food, and friends.Then we took them out to collect some loot!
