The thing about being a parent ...

Today we took a trip to the grocery store and we were on our way home and I (Julie) looked in the rear-view mirror of the car to see Abby pulling something yellow and mooshy out of her mouth and Abby said, "icky mommy, I burp." Instantly I pulled off to the side of the highway and within a millisecond, Abby puked 3 times while strapped into her car seat. It was disgusting and the rest of the ride home the car smelled like puke, but, that's the thing about being a parent. No matter how gross it was, the only thing we cared about was making Abby feel better.

The other thing about being a parent is learning to "wing it." We weren't really sure what to do when she was throwing up and since she did throw up, our weekend plans for this Sunday night were completely thrown out the window. Oh well, that's the thing about being a parent.

Before today, I had planned on updating the blog with a some cute Abby-isms that she says all the time so on a lighter note, here's some cute things Abby says.

"Duke did it." (doesn't matter, if you ask who did it, it was always duke.)

"Baby Jesus and Baby Blake." (Abby's response when we ask her what her baby dolls are named.)

"Peecuz." (translation: Because.)

"No me don't." (translation: No I don't.)

"Big cuck." (translation: Big Truck)

"Now my no more A B C's ..." (translation: Now I know my ABC's ...)

"It's lellow mommy." (translation: it's YELLOW mommy.)

"Wewon is a kitty" (translation: Leon is a kitty.)

"Ony peepo goto Susie's. No Duke." (translation: Only people go to Susies. No Duke.)

"NO Daddy." (translation: I've got you wrapped around my little finger so tight that I will ALWAYS get what I want.)

Loving the outdoors

So we have been spending a ton of time outside these days. There is nothing like releasing a toddler into the warm sun after 6 months of keeping her cooped up inside! Julie and I love the warm weather but Abby just eats it up. She would spend every waking second outside if we let her, which makes for an interesting time trying to get her back into the house. Well here are some pictures from the last week of Abby living it up in the great outdoors.

Grandma Beal was able to find a FREE sandbox, it has quickly become one of her favorite things.

Here she is getting really dirty, one thing that sucks about nice weather is the fact that we can't get away with a bath every other day anymore. In fact right after playing in the sandbox it was right in the tub, she had sand everywhere.

My Jellybean!
