Yes, it’s hard to wrap my mind around the thought that our little princess is 10 weeks old – just over 2 months! She has grown so much the past couple of weeks. She’s put on some more weight and now tips the scale at 10.12 lbs! She has the sweetest, biggest smile that melts mommy’s heart! She now enjoys playing on her activity mat and we are sure to get in plenty of tummy time! We even practice sitting up trying to strengthen her core! She does an amazing job and leaves her daddy and mommy think she’s nothing short of a genius! 😉
We enjoyed our family vacation in Big Sky Country! Montana was absolutely beautiful! Such gorgeous weather – I actually packed clothes that were too warm! We kept very busy trying to make our rounds visiting relatives and friends. John’s parents blessed us with a small family “baby welcome” party. I think Abbie enjoyed the special attention! 😉 She seemed to bond so well with John’s sister.
While in Montana, we made a special trip to Wyoming to visit the former church family John had been part of. It was special to meet some of his friends that I had only heard about. Honestly, I don’t think I have ever visited a church body that was so friendly and outgoing. I felt so welcomed and loved instantly! What a blessing. Since our time of visiting was limited, a group of us went out after the Wednesday service for a time of pie and fellowship afterwards! We stayed there until closing time and it was well worth it!
The whole trip to Wyoming consisted of three days. One day traveling there, one day of visiting, and one day traveling back. On the way there, we went through Yellowstone National Park. I had really wanted to go and at least see Old Faithful which we did! I would have loved to spend much more time there during the day but planning, scheduling, and timing all kind of revolve around a newborn with her feeding times and sleep times. 🙂 On the way back we went through Idaho Falls and we were sure to make a dinner stop at the good ol’ Chick-fil-A!
As a testament to God’s goodness, I can’t help but praise Him for giving Abigail a spirit of peace during the flights and even during each day we were away on vacation. At one point, I mentioned to my husband that it seemed like her colic had come to an end. Once we got home, I soon learned that she still showed signs of it but this just proved how amazing my God is! He put His hand on Abbie and allowed us to enjoy our vacation to its fullest. The Lord knows how much we can handle and He loves to give “good gifts” to His children! Praise be to His name!
So that’s the latest with the Abshers! 🙂 Life has been full but blessed! I look around and see my sweet daughter resting in her swing, a clean house cozily decorated for fall, laundry in the machine, the smell of roast and potatoes waiting to be eaten, and a clean pup laying by my side. Yes, God is good – all the time!
