More of the Princesses!

Don't ask...she wasn't crying so I didn't bother....

Ryley is confused as to why this girl Dora is not scared that this monkey called Boots actually talks...
Funny story here.. I asked Abby if she wanted her picture taken with the bear but she would only get this close and stare!!

Princess #2

Random pictures of our newest princess...I also found out how to change the colors on my camera!!

Abby, Abby, Abby!

Abby loves to sit in bed and flip through magazines just like mommy!
PJ's after bathtime!
She loves her pockets - known as "pocs" to her!

Happy St Patty's Day...Late!

Family Time

Nick's mom, aunt, and grandma made the trip from Ohio and it was so good to have them in town to help with Abby the first couple days...they took her places and kept her occupied so she could still feel lots of love while her parents were sleep deprived. They left too soon it seemed though! Thank goodness they will be back in two weeks - Phillip has spring break so they will be making their normal trip south!
Here are some great pics of Ryley and Abby just being precious as always! Abby got to have fun with the neighbors kids (Brook and Conner who are too cute and we feel as if they are family too!). We also finally got to have our BBQ with friends that Ryley interrupted...good times...

I love it when I catch Abby sleeping in random spots...She had gotten up early and wanted to watch cartoons and eat. When I couldn't hear her anymore I went out to check on her....this is what I found - How Cute!!

Nick's New Tattoo!!

Nick got a new tattoo!! I had bought it for him for our anniversary and he just was able to get it. KIA or Killed In Action is what this tattoo means...I can only imagine what that means to him, but for me it means our friend Casey. I am sure there will be more tattoos to come becuase this is Nick we are talking about!!

Growing, Growing, and Now She's Grown It Seems!!

Abby and Daddy worked on getting her doll back together...Dad worked and Abby oversaw the operation....
Tanner just asked for them to not be too loud so that he could get in the remaining portion of his mandatory 12 hours of sleeping before he went to bed for another 9 hours....

I woke up on Tuesday feeling really great as the baby has dropped and was out of my rib cage for the most part...Abby let me do her hair...and when I looked at her...she looked so grown and it made me so sad... Look at how grown up my munchin looks!!
Such a little model...boy is her daddy in trouble when she gets older!!!
