Sunday, we got up early for church. I was very tired but it was time to get back to normal life! After church Rusty had to go back out to work. So, I met up with Laura and Megan for a little shopping and lunch. It was great!! We had lunch, shopped, went for ice cream and then for dinner! Abi and I were gone for 9 hrs!!! She did fantastic. She only got fussy near the end of the day... and that was just because she was ready to eat!
Abi is ready to meet auntie Laura for the first time!!
Abi and auntie Laura getting to know each other...
Auntie Megan and auntie Laura
Chillin' on Megan's floor...
Feeding time... Auntie Megan was getting some practice in so she's ready to babysit soon!! Next, she needs to conquer diaper changing and we are all set!
A girls day was just what I needed! It was really great spending a day away from the house.

With daddy looking so cute.
Showing off her chubby little cheeks!
Thought I would throw this one in because she looked so darn cute in it ;)
Also on Monday, Rusty got to go pick up his Anniversary present, his new TV. I think he was a little excited to get it in and set up. I have to admit... it is really great looking at a TV with a clear picture and nice coloring!
Abigayl did really good that night because after we went and picked up the TV, we went and got ice cream. It was the first time we put her in her front carrier. I think she really likes that thing because she gets to be cuddled and held the whole time she's in it! Plus, she fell right to sleep while she was in it! Though, I was a little afraid I was going to have to eat my ice cream off the top of her head! All went well though and I went home fat and happy.
Again, I threw this one in because I though she looked so precious. She is such a sweet angel.

I just love this picture of Abigayl
I think she looks better in it though!!!
Grandma giving her a good old sponge bath... I'm glad that those days are over!!
Abigayl is one month old today. I am in absolute amazement that it has already been that long! I guess time really does fly faster when you have kids. I have to say though, it's amazing how much you learn about a newborn in one month!! I went from crying when she cried to being able to ignore her a little so I can eat a hot meal!!! I love her to pieces though and am so thankful that she is my little angel.

Seeing that I haven't left the house much in the past few weeks, the prospect of a night out just the two of us was very exciting! Though, I was apprehensive about leaving me girl for a few hours. But, I sucked it up and off we went to Rusty's dad's house. We left her to sleep it out at her grandpa's (which was mighty boring for him and grandma Patty).
My loot for the day!!
When we returned back to the grandparents house we found that she had indeed slept the whole time. We then got her up for her last feeding of the night (which we had to torture the poor girl to get her to wake up). Reluctantly she ate her dinner and we returned home to fall into bed well past our bed time!!
The best part for Rusty came a couple of days later when our TV went out. So, for our anniversary present this year (it was supposed to happen last year) Rusty got to go pick a new TV. It will be pretty exciting to have a clear picture with the proper color and no high pitch buzz coming from the TV!!
June 17 is also my mom's birthday. So, happy birthday mom. I love you!
Rusty and I never thought we were going to get comfortable enough to take her out but she has done absolutely fantastic! We are so happy that we are now able to go out and do activities! Now, I just need to get brave enough to take her out on my own!!
First time in her swing! She doesn't always like it but sometime it is a good soother for me!
She is so alert... She is always trying to take in the world around her.
I love getting to watch her grow!
Daddy and Grandpa
Her first bath in her real tub... it was an absolute relief to not have to sponge bathe her anymore!
She tends to like her bath once she's in it. But she does not like the before and after... too cold in our AC filled house!

This was the last meal I ate until the 24th! Thank goodness for lunchables and fruit!!
Rusty got to wear this super cool get up. He looks like he's ready to scrub in!!
At 6:40, Abigayl made her debut. The doctor held her over the curtain so we could see her. She was then taken to be cleaned off (Rusty got to go over and see her). They brought her over right after cleaning her so I could cuddle and kiss her.
Luckily, I was able to go home on the 25th. I have now been home for a little over a week and I am feeling better every day. Abigayl has a great schedule that she sticks to very well. I am still sleep deprived, but am able to catch a nap every time she has one.
Grandma Diana stayed with us for a week after she was born. It was great having her here for many reasons, but one really big one was that she took the night shift the whole week. It allowed Rusty and I to catch up on some much needed sleep. Thanks Grandma!! You are loved and missed!
