First Father's Day

I just experienced my first Father's day.

It is a joy to be Abby's father. I have so much fun playing with her and it's a great pleasure to watch her grow and learn things.

Abby, with a lot of help from Andrea, made me a very special scrapbook with pictures of Abby and I together. I will cherish this piece of artwork with all my heart.

We had Andrea's parents and paternal grandparents over for Father's Day lunch this year. Andrea made an outstanding meal to honor the fathers present at our meal. She is quite the cook :)

Thank you Andrea and Abby for making me feel special and honoring me on this special day. It has been a joy to be your husband and father.

Abby @ 10 Months

Abby is now 10 months old.

In addtion to pushing toys around ( see Infant Walker ), Abby is standing for up to 10 seconds at a time ( as depicted in the picture to the right )!

At the rate she is progressing, she is bound to be walking in the very near future.

Abby enjoys climbing our stairs ( supervised of course ), going to the neighborhood pool in the late afternoon, swinging on our back porch, pulling books off most any shelf, playing around the house, and eating finger foods.

Grandma's Chorus Line

We drove to Searcy, Arkansas to visit with my Mom. Unfortunately, my Dad wasn't there because he just left for his annual Beth-Shemesh Archaeology excavation in Israel.

Abby had a great time playing with her Grandma.

My mom babysat Abby one night while we went to Little Rock and watched A Chorus Line at The Rep Theatre. We met up with Brandon and Hannah Siegel at Vino's and enjoyed eating and catching up with them.

We went to a neighborhood garage sale and racked up on several toy bargains for Abby. We captured some video of Abby pushing one of the toys in our living room.

We only paid 50 cents for the push toy, but the moment watching Abby push it around is priceless.
