"What a Trooper"

I haven't been able to post in a week or so because my precious daughter thinks she needs to be held all day long. Abigail's just slightly spoiled. I have to work to squeeze in a shower! Make-up, well that's a treat for myself if I actually get to put some on! I have joined a play group through my church with new moms with infants and joined M.O.P.S. (Mothers of Preschoolers) to meet other moms and have some time for myself. I have realized that I really have to work in time for myself, which is important because after all if "Mama ain't happy, nobody's happy!"

James & I took Abigail to our friend Lindsey's wedding where she was a hit. She continues to be a celebrity everywhere we go because everyone has to stop and look and ask "how many weeks?" or we get the comment "she's brand new!" Of course, Abigail doesn't mind all the extra attention one bit! I took Abigail to get her picture taken at the mall and she actually had her eyes open in the pictures. Next time, we'll work on a smile!

Abigail & I attended the Jefferson Wells family picnic, so Honey could show off all his grandkids! We all had a good time despite the humidity! Below are some pics of Abigail & the rest of the gang!

"Mommy I'm hot & tuckered out!"
The stoller bragade! The first picture is of the whole gang minus Honey, Uncle Barry, Uncle Ricky, & James. From left to right: Abigail in her stroller, my 5 month old nephew Colton, my 6 year old nephew Alec, my 10 month old nephew Gannon, & my 6 year old niece Kayla! What a cute group of kiddos! Mimi & Honey are proud of their grandkids!
Abigail & I took a day trip to meet up with Mimi & Mama (great grandmother) in Galveston. Mimi & Honey have a condo in Galveston. Mimi went to spend a few days in Galveston to check on the condo since it was rented out all summer long. Above is a pic of Mommy showing Abigail the Ocean!
Mimi showing off her new little beach buddy!

Hey Ashley,
Great update. Abigail is getting so big! It looks like you guys are getting out and having fun, and it was fun to see the rest of the gang! Zoe and I look forward to our playdate.
