One Month Old!

Today marks Abigail's one month birthday. I can't believe a whole month has gone by already! Here are some pictures of our lovely Abigail taken throughout the day. The first two are of her in a onesie from Uncle James and the soon to be Auntie Dawn on a quilt made by my friend Jennifer. The second two show Abby in her hand-made outfit from Aunt Ruth Ann. It was actually a good day for it as it was cool and raw outside. The last two are her birthday pictures in a cute little spring dress from the McDonalds of Virginia.

Four Onesies Before Noon

I thought we were getting the hang of things. After all, Abigail is four weeks old as of Saturday. But, one thing I have learned is that each day is different. For example, yesterday Abigail was wide awake most of the morning and early afternoon. This morning/early afternoon she has decided to nap.

One of the things I thought we were getting the hang of was diaper changing. We typically change Abigail in the middle of her mealtimes. Well, so far today we have had to change more than just her diapers. We have already gone through three onesies because she has finished her business during the diaper changing process. At least we can get a good laugh out of it.

Check back in tomorrow. We'll be taking one month pictures of Abigail in a cute spring time outfit (as long as she doesn't mess it up first ;-)

Photo Session

Last week a Bible study friend of mine, Krista, came by to take pictures of Abigail. Krista is a professional photographer. I encourage you to see her work. I especially like the profile picture. Check them out at www.kristaphoto.blogspot.com.

Pre-Abigail Slideshow

I put a slide show together with pre-baby pictures as a sort of electronic scrapbook...I didn't realize I could post it until I saw that my cousin posted a slide show. So, here it is:

What Do You Think?

We are polling everyone to see what you all think. Does Abigail look more like Jonathan as a baby, or does Abigail look more like Diana as a baby?

Here is another picture of Abigail for your reference:

Here is a picture of Jonathan:

First Outdoor Excursion

The weather was absolutely beautiful today. The temperature reached a high of 71 degrees. Today was a perfect day for a stroll outside. This was Abby's first outdoor excursion. And, of course, we had to take pictures to record this momentous occasion:

Kapaldo Family Visit

Jonathan's family visited for a number of days last week. It was great for Abby to meet her Grandparents and her Uncle Nathaniel. It was a great help having everyone there. There were plenty of arms to hold Abigail and Grandma helped out a lot with chores, giving me a chance to take a wonderful 2 hour nap. We are looking forward to when Abigail meets her other uncles within the next few weeks/months.

Here are some pictures from the visit.

I love sleep. It is now a precious commodity. Jonathan and I were happy to experience a wonderful night of sleep two evenings ago. Abigail woke up only to eat and slept the rest of the night!!! I was so excited that it took me a while to fall asleep after each feeding. Last night wasn't quite as smooth, but things are much better than they were the first night at home.

Today marks Abigail's first week in this world. We must be doing something right ;-) Happy 1 week Abigail!
