We are thankful for....

This year has been a year full of so many things we are thankful for.  A lot has changed in the last 12 months and we know that life will never be the same.

From a new baby, to a new house, to a business that is always growing, we know that we are so lucky and are so thankful for our families that have supported us through it all.

It's hard to see, but Abby's got her "My First Thanksgiving" outfit on, complete with a cute little ribbon skirt.  Ellyn got her a cute little headband to match (sadly in Bears colors!).

She also had her own mini Thanksgiving when we gave her her first green bean to suck on.  She certainly can't eat it yet, but she sure did like to suck the butter off of it.

Look at those big eyes!!  It's so yummy.

I've got some new house photos to share with you from last weekend but I haven't even started editing them or crafting a post, so for today, you are going to have to be ok with a video of Abby's first giggles.  She isn't full on laughing yet like her cousin Kayden, but this is the closest I've seen so far.  Jamie found her tickle spot!!

She's changing so much these days and learning tons.  She's really starting to use her hands and is starting to grab at toys (and Momma's hair!).

Another first for this week is cloth diapers.  We've been doing them full time for just over a week now and I will do a whole post on that in a little bit.  I've already got lots to say about it so stay tuned for that too.

What could be cuter than videos of babies??

This morning Abby was especially smiley so I dug out my video camera to capture it.  She's usually happiest in the morning and there are no shortage of smiles.  She finds it hilarious when you stick out your tongue out at her.  She either starts sticking hers out back at you, or gives you a big old smile. 

Yesterday Abby found her fingers for the first time.  She just stared at them for about a minute opening and closing her fingers.  Today she's starting to consciously hitting her toys with her hand.  She loves the yellow lion on her chair the most.

While uploading the video I shot of Abby today I found one of Kayden that I totally forgot we took.  This was a month or two ago and it was hilarious.  We were sitting at dinner and Mom was holding Kayden at the table.  Mom picked up her wine glass to take a drink and this is what happened.  Enjoy!!

Bath Time - Round 2

You know what happens when you buy a camera that can take lots of pictures really quickly?  I'll tell end up with lots of pictures!

Nothing important to share, just bath time!

* This one is my favorite!
