Two Year Check-up

As the lady at the front desk at the Clinic said, I can't believe she is two already, where did the time go? Exactly!!

Ab's had a good checkup and didn't even cry when she got her shot! Now she doesn't have to go back for a whole year, loving that! She is now 25 lbs 14 oz and 32 1.2 inches, so that puts her in the 25-50% for weight and 25% in height, she is growing and is good portion.

As some of you know our preschool experience did not go very well. At this time I will not go into details or what my observations and thoughts are. It was just shocking to us, as Abigail loves people and enjoys going to church childcare center and did so well at vacation bible school. Anyhow, as we were talking with Abigail's doctor about what happened, she said there have been some other parents with complaints, so that relieved us knowing we are not the only one's. She said one of these days soon she would be butting heads. Got love Ab's doc!. I am actually relieved she said that because as a mom I was questioning myself and having my own doubts, wondering did I do something wrong, did I miss out on teaching my child something or not preparing her? Sure I still have questions and wonder what exactly happened or why, but right now I am ok with it and am moving on. So what does this mean for us now? We are enjoying time at home playing, learning and preparing for new baby together.

Baby Swing


Today we received something for the new baby to be. A baby swing, and here is Abigail testing it out with her baby. Thanks Tracye, and yes it does work great!!

Last week my parents gave us a cute frame to put Baby A's ultrasound in. So here is a little peak at Baby A. We should find out the first part of December if Baby A is a boy or girl.

Baby A update

This morning I had my follow up OB appointment from my blood tests and ultrasound, everything is good and normal. Abigail was there this morning with me at my appointment, so she got to hear the heartbeat with me. Baby A's heartbeat this morning was 169, so good and healthy heartbeat! I believe that is the same as Abigail's. The wise tale is a higher heartbeat over 140 means girl, a lower heartbeat means boy. But remember that is just a wise tale, really doesn't mean anything except a good heartbeat!

Abigail sure is one lucky little girl, she received some very special gifts from her family. She now has her own table/chairs, many new books, clothes (though she wasn't happy opening those, she threw those aside to go for the goodies), 4-wheeler, Elmo video (loves Elmo!), very cute art smock which her Grandma Woelpern made, fun paints, piggy-paint nail polish, new baby doll with diaper bag, and lots of money for her savings!! Thank you our Minnesota family, we love and miss each of you!! Also Auntie Rachel, Uncle Melvin & cousin Dezbah in Arizona, and our many, many friends throughout Texas!!
