I peed on one of these a year ago today.
We were in Mexico on a trip with my parents.
It was positive.
I sat on sink, covered my mouth, smiled and then laughed for a good minute before telling the hubs.
It was 6am after all.
Eight months later…
We love you little Abigail.

4 months.

My dear sweet Abigail,

You’re FOUR MONTHS OLD TODAY. Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor.

To celebrate being such a big girl, you decided to show us your new skills – babbling, blowing raspberries and spitting all over your daddy. He couldn’t be more proud of you.

You’re just getting so stinkin’ big. We tried to be away from you for a week while in Mexico and we simply couldn’t stand it. We missed you so much. Never again will we leave you for that long. Or…until we forget how much it sucked being away from you.

Pretty soon you’re going to start teething. And sitting up on your own. And then driving your own car. And then calling me to tell me you met some awesome dude and you’re going to get married and I’ll be all “But what kind of music does he listen to” and then…

Whatever. Point being, you can slow down with the growing up. It’s already going too fast.

Love you much,
Momma & Daddy.

Blargh: Why I should have stopped at a pharmacia in Mexico.

lil’ miss abbers. no reason for this pic except OMG I LOVE HER.

I’ve almost completely convinced myself that I have ADD. I have been thinking about a fafillion things other than work WHILE AT WORK today, including but not limited to:

  • Getting my taxes done
  • Blogging about Mexico
  • Abby in general
  • Signing up to attend BlogHer
  • Taxes
  • Trying to plan a trip to Vegas in April
  • Scheduling a weekend to visit my parents
  • Penciling in laundry
  • Pondering why I can’t be a stay at home mom
  • Oh, and taxes.

I keep trying to think about just ONE THING AT ONCE and it’s not happening.

Did you know you can buy Ritalin in “pharmacies” in Mexico? Without a prescription? Because you can – amongst other things, like Amoxicillin and Viagra. Also a tidbit I picked up while there – Dramamine in Mexico is called Vomicin. I shit you not. I’ll take a photo of the packaging when I get home. It was a running joke between the hubs and I during our vacation.

Anyway – I’ve been trying to figure out how to recap our Mexico trip. It had it’s own disasters. However, I can’t wrap my brain around the vacation enough to be able to write about it in a way that isn’t long, drawn out bitching. So…maybe I’ll do it in a few days when I have my head on right. We did have SOME fun. Swearzies.

In the meantime, I’ll just keep staring at my gorgous little stinker until the clock hits five.

A minute and thirty seconds…

…watched over and over and over again while in Mexico. I deleted everything off our point & shoot before we left except this video and a couple photos so we could get our Abby fix every day.

We missed her so very much.

On Saturday, Abby laughed for the first time.

The hubs was playing with her on her play mat and we were just chatting, when he said something along the lines of how happy he was that we had a girl. Then he mentioned if we DID have a boy that he’d be playing more rough with him and demonstrated by “roughing up” Abby.

This is the result.

I of course began to cry instantly. I still tear up thinking about hearing that sound for the very first time. After the waterworks, the hubs screamed “CAMERA!” at which point I scrambled to find out point & shoot and had to delete something to free up some space for a video. (What did I delete? Who knows. Whatever it was wasn’t as good as THIS.)

Do you think we’ve heard her do it again? NO. Which makes this video that much better. If this works anything like her smile did, we won’t hear it again for another two weeks. :)
