Abby @ 5 Months

Abby is 5 months old now.

We think she is going through a growth spurt because she is starting to eat much more than she used to. As a result, she is getting so much bigger.

She has had some troubles with her digestive system, but things are starting to clear up.

Abby isn't crawling yet, but she is sitting up like a pro!

She is also starting to demonstrate a strong attachment to us. My heart melts when she turns from her crib and makes a huge smile when she recognizes my face.

Abby Sits Up

Abby is now sitting up... and she isn't even 5 months old yet!

I was about to take some pictures of her tripoding ( sitting forward propping herself up with her arms ), but to our amazement she started sitting upright by herself for about 2 minutes!

I captured the moment on my video camera as well ( check back here for the video in the near future ).

Since this initial moment she has been regularly sitting up. I guess she is raring to reach the next developmental marker.

She is growing up so fast. Before you know it she will be crawling and walking all over the apartment! We have some baby proofing to do before that happens :)

Abby Meets Great Granny

Today Abby met her Great Granny ( Andrea's Maternal Grandmother )!

Granny lives in an assisted living facility in Columbia, TN.

We met Andrea's parents near Columbia and then we all went to visit Granny. Granny was in good spirits today. She appeared to enjoy meeting and interacting with Abby. The sight of Abby brought many smiles not only to Granny, but also to many of her neighbors.

After visiting Granny we all went back to Carmack and Nancy Skelton's house ( Andrea's Maternal Uncle and Aunt ) to eat lunch. It is always good to see Carmack and Nancy.

In addition, the trip to and from Columbia was nice. We took the very scenic Natchez Trace Parkway. I imagine its even more beautiful during the spring or fall!

Puzzling New Birth Year

As of December 29th I am now officially 29 years of age.

For my birthday and New Years we went to Andrea's parents house in Jackson, TN.

We had a very relaxing time putting together a puzzle ( Children on the Beach (1884) by Mary Cassatt ), watching The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at the theatre, and sleeping in!!!

As you can tell from the bottom picture, Andrea's parents are always thrilled to see Abby when we come to visit.
