I am slowly but surely getting caught up on my Blogging. Last weekend was a very nice weekend. On Friday, Rachel came over and we went to John and Kim's to swim. She had missed out on swimming when she was with us at the beginning of August and we wanted to make it up to her. Plus, we just really like having her around. During lunch Kim's best friend, Vicki, came to bring Abby the most beautiful dress she had smocked. I didn't get any good pictures with Vicki, but it was so nice to visit with her. I can't wait until Abby's old enough to wear that dress. It is gorgeous. When we got home, Aaron took a nap and Rachel dressed Abby up.
She's got on a Tutu Onesie from Old Navy that our friends the Schraubs gave us with the Flower Headband. In some of the pictures she has on sequined shoes that were her cousin Leah's.
In the picture above she has on some PINK sandals from our friend Debbie.
We got to have Rachel spend the night with us and on Saturday morning the girls went to Target while the boys went to swimming class. It was Aaron's last class of the semester and he did great! He got a ribbon and a backpack for completing it. He started his Fall lessons the following Tuesday so that we can keep his skills up.
After lessons and shopping we met the boys while they were getting Aaron's haircut. Much needed!
Then we headed to Einstein Bros!
After some play time at home we took Rachel back to her mom. We are already anticipating next summer when she can visit us lots! On Sunday we went to church.
These pictures were taken after church. It was Promotion Sunday and Aaron moved up a class. Abby is still in Babies.
Abby has a dress that I absolutely love. Leslie gave it to her at the end of July and I can not get enough of it. It is a six month dress, so I know she will grow out of it soon so I put her in it constantly.
She has, without doubt, worn this more than either of my children have ever worn a single outfit.
I don't think you can tell in these pictures how great it is. It is a light purple Janie and Jack dress with the cutest pattern. I adore it. It is what she wears every Sunday to church.
Abby started in the high chair last week and she is doing really well, though you can't tell how much she likes it from these pictures. She is really sitting up well and she is enjoying her chair and it makes it a lot easier to feed her.
The third time we tried green beans she loved them. I gave them to her a few more times to make sure it wasn't a fluke and then I moved on to spinach. I like to get the tough ones out of the way first! She LOVED spinach - couldn't get enough! I actually limit her on how much she can have, because - really - how much spinach does a six month old need? She is still eating oatmeal several times a day and we will try some other grains soon. I think the next vegetable will be limas!
My husband has started a wonderful Blog that records his thoughts as he does his daily Bible Reading. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and I wanted to share it with you. You can find it here. His first post gave the background for why he is starting the Blog and you can read about that here.
