8 months!

So, I feel kind of bloggy-cliche doing the month-by-month baby posts....but not enough to stop me from doing them! :) That being said...

Abigail turned 8 months old this week! The cutesy lie-on-the blanket-with-the-doll pictures were not gonna happen, but I do feel like the following pictures accurately sum up life with my 8 month old!

  • 17 lbs, about 26 inches
  • Abby eats about every 4 hours and has solids 3 times per day.
  • Abby takes two naps a day, and she is still waking up one time at night to eat.
  • Bedtime is about 6:30-7:00, depending on the day, and our early bird likes to wake up about 5:30 am.
  • She is crawling, pulling up, cruising, and standing alone for 10-2o seconds!
  • She says "Dadadadada" all day long with a few rasberries, lalalalas, yayayayayas, and babababas thrown in.
  • Abby loves to play with her books, her stacking cups, and teething toys (no teeth yet!). Her favorite things to play with are the items in each room that you would prefer she did not touch.
We are such proud, happy parents....our little Abigail is such a HAPPY, FUN, and SMART little girl!

Too short.

The Green Smoothie

Well, I talk about it enough, so I thought I would go ahead and post the Green Smoothie recipe that is my obsession.

I got the original recipe here. Major Pinterest Win.

You should try it.

Here's my version:

In a blender, I throw in:
-Frozen Fruit (I get the frozen bag of pineapple, mango, strawberry, and peaches from Sam's)
-several handfuls of Kale or Spinach
- 2 bananas
-some flax seed
-pineapple juice
-some mint if I have some


At first I had to ignore the color, and now I embrace it. Heck, yeah I'm getting all my fruit and veggies for the day in one delicious smoothie!

Many Faces

Abby has got the BEST facial expressions. (or at least I think so.) These pics aren't the best because they are from my iPad, but they make me smile so much that I thought I'd share.
