I can't believe that my baby girl is 3 years old, that just doesn't seem right! I am so blessed to be Abigail's Mommy! She's such a beautiful, happy little girl! Abigail has developed quite an imagination lately, which is so fun to watch! She names her baby dolls and makes up little stories all the time! Abigail has brought so much joy to our lives, it's hard to remember what life was like before she came into our world!

"Bad things happen to good people." I have been thinking about this phrase a lot over the past few days. As many of you know, I had a miscarriage in February. Well, I found out at the beginning of May that I was pregnant again. James & I were both happy, but having a hard time getting excited about the pregnancy having gone through the miscarriage. So, we decided to only tell our family, community group, & close friends. We started getting excited about another baby and planning for growing our little family. We began looking at bigger vehicles to better fit multiple car seats & started discussing moving into our bigger investment property when our tenants lease is up in a year. The first few doctor's appointments, I was so nervous and holding my breathe the whole time. However, we started to relax & really get excited about the pregnancy when we were able to see the little heart beating.

A few weeks ago, Abigail got her first big girl bike! She had been asking for a bike, but every time we were at Toys r' Us we would try to get her to ride the bikes and she would get frustrated and get off the bike. Still Abigail continued to ask for a bike. James & I planned on buying her one for her birthday, but she was able to get the bike as a reward. Abigail had regressed in potty training in the poop department, so I developed a sticker chart and told her she could pick out a toy when she got some many stickers. Well, this method worked in helping my already potty trained child get back on track. The first toy she picked out was a small $20 toy. However, this time she picked out the bike & we decided to go ahead and get it for her as a reward because she was so excited about the bike! Thankfully Abigail stopped asking for the stickers after she goes potty so we don't have to worry about buying anymore toys. I admit the bike was a little too much to spend for a reward. Abigail is one spoiled little girl! She loves her new bike & has enjoyed riding it around our house! Mommy & Daddy are so proud!

A little over a week ago, Abigail got her first hair cut! Abigail has very fine hair & she had a little bit of a rat tail going on in the back. I wanted to hold off cutting it until after her big dance recital. I have always wondered why she doesn't have more hair than she does. I was born with lots of hair & have always had long hair except for when it was chopped off when I was in kindergarden & I went to school crying everyday about it. James was also born with a head full of hair & is in need of a hair cut every time I turn around. Anyways, I hope getting it trimmed will help Abigail's hair grow thicker & faster.

Memorial Day was spent at Papa & Grandma's farm. Abigail helped work in the garden, but didn't know what to think because all the vegetable plants were bigger than her. We ate squash & green beans fresh from the garden along with some grilled fish that James caught the night before. It was very hot outside, but we played outside as much as we could. After lunch, Papa & Grandma were ready to go home. So, we stopped by our farm on the way home because Abigail wanted to see the baby calfs. Abigail fell asleep during the car ride home & took a very long nap. We had a very busy, but fun holiday weekend!

Sunday night was Abigail's 1st dance recital! Boni's on Broadway 2010! Abigail has been taking pre-ballet all year with Boni's dance studio. I love Boni's because all the teachers are so wonderful with the little ones. Abigail has learned so much throughout the school year. Abigail's dance was to the song from the movie Grease, "Hopelessly Devoted to You!" The girls danced holding teddy bears! The dance was precious! Abigail was so excited about her dance recital & kept asking me when we were going to her dance recital. When the recital was over, she didn't quite know what to do with herself. She was overwhelmed by all the family who came to see her dance. I was one proud Mama & more nervous than she was about the whole thing.
