Warning: Baby Crawling Is Imminent!

July 31, 2009

Well, we’ve been watching Abby get up on her hands and knees the past week or so. It looks like she’s getting dangerously close to becoming mobile. Oh dear. So far, though, there’s been no forward motion. I give it two weeks tops.

Abby’s New Stand-Up Thingy

July 28, 2009

For those of you who just want to see anything and everything about Abby that I’ll throw out there, this one’s for you. Yes, I know that’s pretty much just the grandparents.

For those of you wanting a geeky angle, I can say that this is the first video I’ve filmed, edited, and uploaded to YouTube using only my new iPhone 3GS. It’s pretty cool to be able to do all of this without ever offloading the video to my computer.

This is Abby playing in her new stand-up exercise thingy. I honestly can’t believe she’s this big already.

Abby Loves Her Feet!

July 23, 2009

UPDATE: The video was accidentally marked “private” in YouTube. I’ve fixed it now. If you tried unsuccessfully to view the view, try again. It’s working now. Sorry!

Not only has Abby recently (almost) mastered the art of sitting up unassisted, she’s also accomplished a long-time goal: putting her feet in her mouth. Bored with inserting ALL FIVE FINGERS in her mouth at the same time, she’s now moved on to sticking her entire foot in there.

Maryalice caught her on video perfecting her form. It looks like she’s been studying how the cats clean their toes. It’s pretty disgusting, actually…

Abby Month 4 Pictures

July 21, 2009

I know, I know… these pictures are late. But they’re really not. Here’s the deal. We’ve decided to just put the pics up in one-month batches instead of stringing them along. So, the pics for all of month 4, including grandparents and other stuff, are all in the month 4 gallery. That’s what we’ll do each month now.

So go check out all the great month 4 goings on, including our kiddo sitting up, by clicking the bouncy girl below!


Abby Laughs It Up

July 18, 2009

Maryalice’s friend, Lisa, visited with us last weekend. She and Abby hit it off big-time. Here’s a quick video of the two of them yucking it up. It’s some awesome baby laughter.

The Incredible Abby!

July 14, 2009

So, as a comic geek, this makes me laugh. My wife and I have been amazed at our daughter’s growth. As of her month four doc appointment, Abby is in the 90th percentile in height and weight. Now at five months, she’s already been wearing six month clothes for a while.

This morning when Maryalice went in to get her out of bed, she noticed something peculiar. Overnight, Abby had stolen a dramatic move from the Incredible Hulk’s playbook. Her giant baby feet broke through the booties of her footie pajamas!

If there was ever a time when I wished I had a high speed camera pointed at Abby at all times, this is it! The thought of the seams popping and fabric ripping as her toes and heel forced their way out of their confinement cracks me up.

And somewhere, Bill Bixby is smiling.
