4 month Stats

Hello Faithful Blog readers!

We got to go to the doctor on this dreary rainy morning for Abs (picked this nickname up from my niece Megan who called Abbey that one time! I thought it was cute!!) 4 month check up!

She is 24 1/2 inches long and in the 50th percentile for height, and 12 lbs and 1/2 oz which puts her in the 25th percentile for weight, her head was in the 50th percentile too but I can't remember how big it was! She got great remarks from the doctor. He said her head control was great and asked if she was reaching for things and being vocal- all of which she is doing! She has not rolled over yet but is very close- she kind of rolls over if she is on the bed. She scoots like a madwoman in her crib, especially if her pacifier has fallen out and she is trying to get it back in her mouth! Its pretty cute to watch on the monitor.

She also got 3 shots in the legs, and one oral vaccine. She did SO well, she cried for about 30 seconds then I picked her up and got her dressed and by the time we were paying she was smiling! She is sleeping right now, I think I may let her sleep a little longer than normal since she had a rough morning! I am currently working on my Christmas cards and letter, yes you will be getting a letter and a card a little late this year! Oops!! Better late than never right?

Well if I don't post again before the New Year everyone have a safe and fun time when you are celebrating. We have reservations at Ruth's Chris NYE (also known as Shane's birthday) then back to our house for a wild crazy night with the Zimmerman/Woods/Gebhart clan! Adios

Scarface

So Abbey had her first accident this weekend, she handled it better than Mom did! The cat jumped in Shanes lap (while he was holding Abbey) and so then Zeke went crazy and had to get the kitty and jumped in Shane's lap on Abbey. She luckily closed her eyes and he only scratched the top and bottom but it looks pretty bad! Poor Zeke thought that he was in big trouble but we have just been getting on to him when he startes going after the cats now. Abbey is just fine and not even phased by the scratch now! Oh also a pic of my new specs! I love them!

Ouch!
First Boo Boo
My new glasses and the injured little girl!

Make a Wish

So I am sure many of you know that the Make a Wish requestathon is going on here on a local radio station. Well it normally gets to me and makes me shed a few tears but this year it is totally different. This year it really hits home, Shane and I have been so lucky to have been blessed with a happy healthy little girl. Although it breaks my heart to hear the stories of these little kids it also makes me stand back and just be in awe of these parents of these special little kids. Their strength and dedication amazes me. I realize now that there really is nothing a mother would not do for her child. Listening to these stories I feel guilty for the times when I get frustrated when Abbey gets fussy or gets up in the middle of the night and I wish I could just sleep- I know those feelings are natural but now listening to these stories I am thankful for those moments. I realize there will always be times of frustration with children but in the grand scheme of things we are very lucky. It also warms my heart to hear so many of these families talk about their faith in God and the strength that he gives them, I can only imagine that God is the only way to get through situations like the ones I hear on the radio.

So my challenge to anyone who reads this blog is to donate to the Make a Wish requestathon (317-228-1099 or www.z995.com) even if it is just $5 any amount could help a child's wish come true. I especially challenge you if you have a healthy happy child at home to help make a child in need a little happier. Shane and I do the wish maker club where we donate $10 a month making our total donation $120, it comes right out of our bank account and we never even miss it! This an organization I have supported for over 5 years now and it has a special place in my heart. Thanks for taking the time to read this post! Also my thoughts and prayers go out to the Omaha families who were involved in the tragic shooting, what a crazy world we live in today.

I did not mean for this to be a sad and gloomy post! I am very thankful for all of the blessings we have in life and wanted to try to give to families who are in need. Stay tuned this weekend I will post pictures from Shane's company Christmas party!
