Happy Birthday, Sweet Princess!!

Mommy & Daddy love you to the moon and back!!

Abigail's Birthday Party weekend

Yesterday was Abigail's 3rd birthday party. She had a BLAST at Chuck E. Cheese. Most of her favorite people were there. Unfortunately, her cousin Kylie couldn't make it. Kylie had her tonsils taken out on Thursday and wasn't able to come. We all missed her.

Abigail was absolutely enamored with Chuck....though she refused to go near him without me or her daddy. To be honest, the giant, walking, talking rat creeps me out, so I can't imagine being a three year old. She had a Spongebob party. Complete with a custom made Spongebob cake. A woman I work with makes THE best cakes. She did Abigail's Curious George one last year, and this year she made the BOB one. It is SUPER cute. Here's a picture...if you want her number, let me know.....she's trying to start her own business....she's even done a couple wedding cakes.

After the party we went to Uncle Chris & Aunt Nelly's (Matthew's brother & his wife/my best friend) house and to their pool. My child LOVES to swim. Well....swim wouldn't exactly be the word to choose...more float around in her tube. We'll work on the swimming. She had so much fun. She has her aunt and uncle wrapped around her little finger....and I believe they love every second of it.
Today, we had a lazy day. Daddy had to work, so it was just me and the princess. She had tons of fun playing with her new toys. Matthew and I got her a cash register. Her cousins have one and she loves playing with it so we decided to get her one for home. She had a BALL with it today. She was playing with it and I was at the computer for a minute. I heard her talking and asked her to repeat what she said. Her answer was, "I wasn't talking to you, Mommy. I was talking to my customer." HAHAHAHA!!! Love that girl.

Tomorrow is her birthday. I cannot believe how quickly time has gone....

It's been a while....

We have had a pretty uneventful couple weeks. Last weekend, we went to Ellie's (Abigail's' best friend) birthday party. It was a pool party and Abigail had the time of her life. It was so cute!! In her goody bag, she got an Ariel water tube thingy. My child absolutely ADORES Ariel, so getting this tube made her week. So much so, that she has to bathe with it in the tub. Don't believe me?? There's the picture!! :) She's so much fun.

We've also been getting ready for our move. When the lease is up on our apartment, we'll be moving to Grayson to live with Matthew's parents. They are both laid off, and we'd like the opportunity to save some money to buy our own home, so this is a win-win situation. I know it's going to be a big adjustment, but it's also going to be GREAT for Abigail. She adores her Mimi & Pop Pop so the idea of living with them has her thrilled to pieces. She has been "helping" us pack. This usually entails her climbing into a box with her teddy bear, or another random toy, and playing. In a way she IS helping cause she's out from under foot.

In 9 days, my baby is turning THREE years old. I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone. I can't believe that this was our first picture together....

It seems like time just flies by now. Makes for a sad mommy!!!
