First Day of School

Abigail had her first day of preschool this past Wednesday. She was so extremely excited to be going. All she talked about for weeks before hand. We woke up on Wednesday morning, and the first words out of Abigail's mouth were, "Am I going to school today?" We were finally able to tell her yes. I went in to work late so I could take her on her first day. We got up, took a bath and got her dressed in her adorably cute dress that she picked out for her first day of school.

After breakfast, we were ready to go! We got her backpack on and we were out the door.

Mommy kept it together long enough to drop her off in her class room. She was so very excited to be there. She hung her bookbag up, sat down and started coloring.

The look on her face says, "Mom, stop taking my picture and get the heck out of here. I can handle this." Haha!!! She made my day when I started to walk away from her and out the door. She yelled MOM. When I turned around, she had her hands in the air and her lips puckered up for one more hug and kiss. Talk about making my day. I got all my tears out in the car on the way to work. This was so difficult for me because we've never left Abigail with someone who wasn't family.
Matthew and I were DYING all day wanting to know how school was. When she got home, Matt's mom had her call us both at work. She wasn't really into telling us much about her day. The part that stuck out in her mind was the birthday cake she had...apparently it was someone's birthday.

All I can say is, I hope she loves school this much forever!!!

Football Season is Upon Us

Labor day was kick off for the greatest college football team out there...The Miami Hurricanes. Abigail was so excited to watch the game with Daddy & PopPop. She was dressed in her Miami Best.

The red flag is a hurricane warning flag that she wore as a cape. Too cute!!!!

Bowling Gone Bad

Last Sunday we decided to do something fun. We asked Abigail what she wanted to do, and her answer was Rollerskating. She heard her cousins talking about skate night at their school, and that's what put the idea in her head. When she asked Daddy, his answer was,"No way. That's too dangerous for someone your size." So, on that statement alone, we decided to go bowling.

We got there, got our shoes on and started our game. It was the best game of bowling I've ever had....two strikes in the first 4 frames. Abigail was having the time of her life!!!!!! They had these ramp things were a child can place her ball and it rolls the ball down the alley after they push it. She was having a great game too.

Right before the fifth frame, things turn ugly. Little Miss Independence just HAD to carry her ball by herself. As she was walking to the ramp, the ball started to slip out of her hand. Instead of just letting the ball fall to the ground, she thought she needed to catch it. The weight of the ball pulled her hand down with it and then she and the ball crashed down on the floor. The result of this little spill was our first trip to the ER and this:

That darn ball broke 2 fingers in her right index finger. She was a trooper in the emergency room; especially considering how long they made us wait. We had to keep her awake, so we had a mini photo shoot in the room while we were waiting for the doctor. Here's some of the pics.

She is recovering very well. The doctor said it should be healed within 3 weeks. Abigail has been trying to move it a lot more in the past few days, which is a great sign!! It just stinks that she has to start preschool with such a big boo boo; especially since it's on her right hand and she does everything right handed.
