All about Abby!

June 21st, 2010 — 10:06am

Another blog you say? What is going on? Time people….I’ve actually got some extra of it. This can also be used as proof to Andrew that I am sitting and resting instead of working on moving stuff. Have I ever mentioned that I am HORRIBLE at sitting and resting? I am. I am terrible at it. Especially when I know there are things that need to be done.

I’ve recently bought a couple of new little outfits for Abby. One will be her going home outfit from the hospital…because really, every special occasion deserves a special outfit. Another one came from the sale rack at Target and I just couldn’t pass it up. I mean…it was on sale! What was I supposed to do? I also visited this cute little baby boutique and some bows and headbands JUMPED into my hands and I had to buy them. I was forced and had no choice.  This is what a summer vacation will do to you people. Leave you with no work and lots of free time to buy things for your first baby girl. Now all I need is for Abby to make her grand entrance into this world so she can wear all the cute outfits I’ve been planning for her!

Look closely at the bloomers….they are crocheted! Oh Janie and Jack, you are a dangerous store!

The flowered leggings just get me. So cute!

I also forgot to mention that I bought a cute little hat off of Etsy for Abby to wear in the hospital. Etsy is also a very dangerous thing.

At my shower in Houston I received a rocking chair made by one of my best friends and her mom. I am currently obsessed with this chair. It’s so cute and little and girly and just perfect for Abby. Every time I look at it I can’t help imagining Abby sitting in it reading a book or how adorable it will look in her nursery.

I mean, really. How cute is this?

My mom gave me a really special present too. She had the dress that I wore home from the hospital framed to go up in Abby’s room. After all these years the dress is in perfect condition and it looks so great in the frame. I can’t wait to hang it up.

three showers and father’s day!

June 20th, 2010 — 7:26pm

I am so incredibly behind in my blogging….maybe I can blame that on being 9 months pregnant, or maybe on the fact that we are about to move to Waco…yes….those seem like great reasons to me!

Andrew and I have been so blessed to have been given 3 baby showers. We have literally been showered with so many gifts for Abby it’s incredible. We are so thankful to everyone for that.

My mom, sister and some aunt’s threw me a shower in Port Neches. It was a lovely shower, filled with great food, friends, family and gifts! I enjoyed every minute of it! Here are some pics of the day:

The next shower was thrown by my best friends here in Houston. I was blown away by everything they did to make the shower so special. It was another day filled with yummy food, great friends and fun!

Today I got to celebrate Father’s Day with the best husband around! We went to Carrabba’s and enjoyed a delicious lunch and have spent the afternoon relaxing with each other. I can’t wait to see Andrew interact with Abby….I know he is going to be the best dad to her.
