Cabin Trip

Aug 13 & 14 we decided to go up to the cabin with Skyler's brother (his wife & 2 boys, 6 & 1), mother (her husband) Sister (and her 2 1/2 month old baby) I'm glad it was just us that went up. We were only planning on staying the day but everyone was like oh just stay.... so we did. We should have left, I just knew it. The cabin was too hot at night, Abigail got sick. It was ridiculous, but Skyler had fun and that's all that matters. Now here are some pictures!
Enjoying the view together.

She sure does love the exersaucers.

Truth is...

I've been an awful, terrible, horrible, blogger the past 2 weeks now. Life got in the way. Well I should rephrase that, life got wonderful, exciting, busy. The past 2 weeks I've been enjoying life and staying busy. I signed up for ICLW and screwed up. I didn't post. I forgot. Now that all my excuses are out there, I will tell you what I've been up to and what you can plan to see posts about....

Aug 13-14 (there were sched posts these days) I was in the middle of no where in a cabin with my in-laws.
Aug 15 - My friend April flew in from Cali that night so we spent all day cleaning and preparing for the next day.
Aug 16- Our 3 year anniversary, and the day we went through the Temple.
Aug 17- Recovering and I had lunch with my sweet friend Amber
Aug 18 - Now I've been redoing our kitchen cabinets, painting and deep cleaning. Life has been busy.

With a busy life means lots to talk about, meaning lots of posts. Meaning you will be kept busy with posts.

Body Changes.


First off, I want to let you know I got this post from Infertile Mormon Mommy, check out her blog, she's such a sweet girl, and has a beautiful baby girl also!


"A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn. One for every time you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes and slept in the most perfect darkness. One for every time you had the hiccups. One for every dream you dreamed within me.

It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it ugly. That's OK. It was your home. It's where I first grew to love you, where I lay my hand as I dreamed about who you were and who you would be. It held you until my arms could, and for that, I will always find something beautiful in it."

I got up Friday morning after writing my PYHO post on Wednesday. I saw this and it immediately made me feel better. It's so true. I do love everything about my new body, like I mentioned, it's just hard sometimes. I know everyone feels this way a time or two, and that's why I felt the need to copy this from her. It really helped. It's so true. Everything that has changed with my body is because of my little girl, it know it is. While I was pregnant and really sick, my doctor would always comfort me and tell me, almost always when we sick mom, we have a healthy baby growing. Sure enough, she was and still is very healthy. I hope you know I wasn't complaining about my body the other day, I'd cut of my leg, or have my whole face covered in stretch marks if it meant I could have my baby here, safe and healthy. Believe it or not I actually have contemplated on occasion of taking a picture of my stomach. Mostly because I want a before picture, because I randomly get motivated to work out. But part of me wants to remember every little detail of my pregnancy. It still doesn't seem real. That moment where it clicks in, oh my heck I'm pregnant, oh my heck I have a baby, it still hasn't hit me yet. It seem so unreal. I'm living a fairy tale over here people. Anyway, just remember that every little change in your body after a baby, is beautiful.

5 months.

Abigail, I can't believe you are 5 months already! (as of Aug 5th)
 You've grown so much in this last month. You are around 15 maybe 16ish lbs. I haven't measured your height yet. Though I know you've grown. Your hair is growing in so full. I love it. We started doing a little fo.hawk with your hair.

You can't see it in this picture we took, but it's there behind the flower, and you love it! You love the water still, so very much.
You played in an exersaucer for the first time this month. 
You loved it! You were so curious as to what everything did, at first we had to help you move around in it, but now you're doing it. You also will not sit down in it, you stand the whole time! 
Daddy isn't good at taking non blurry pictures, but you worked on your first big project with me. We're redoing our kitchen cabinets and you're my little helper, you follow me around everywhere! 

whoops, forgot to turn the pictures around! Anyway, you put yourself to sleep in your crib for a nap for the first time. Which got me to buy a monitor, and later caused me to put you in your crib to sleep. You do great! There are some nights when you just need mom and dad to sleep, and that's fine, but you usually sleep great alone. I'm so proud of you.
I've had to move you up in clothing size. You are now finally, wearing 3-6 month clothing. 3 and 0-3 still fit, but the pj's are too small in most 0-3. We bought you some adorable size 6 pjs from target! You love how your little feet hang out. You're always holding onto them!



You're also starting to bond with your dad. You snuggle up with him at night sometimes. He's even put you to sleep without having to nurse! It was amazing. You and daddy like to watch Blue's Clues and work on the computer together too!
