Abigail loves her Zhu Zhu pet. We were talking about these at work last week and I wanted to find one that wasn’t the actual color of a hamster. Something about one that looked like an actual hamster was a little creepy to me. Ms. Angie from work got this for her. She got it for her as an Easter gift, but we had to go ahead and give it to her. Jason opened it out of the pushed it’s back and off it went. We sat her on the kitchen floor and she just watched it go around and around. When it would come towards her she would laugh. Every once in a while she would pick it up and of course it went towards her mouth. I would push its nose and she would giggle at the noises. Zhu Zhu pet was a success! Package said ages 3 and up, however Abby loves it! Of course she will only get to play with it under adult supervision though.

I think the Spencer household is almost germ free! Abby is feeling so much better. She was able to hold her normal formula for the 1st time in over a week this morning. She also had her normal breakfast and held it. I couldn’t be happier. It is so pitiful when she is sick. She truly doesn’t complain but her little eyes let me know she isn’t feeling well. So we are hoping to stay away from the pediatrician’s office until her 9 month appointment in April. Thank you everyone for your prayers!

I’m so glad this little girl is feeling so much better! This picture was taken on Tuesday...she was so pitiful while she was sick, as you can see above, however she never stopped smiling and she didn't complain. We still have 6 days of antibiotic left, but she is definitely feeling so much better!

What a day what a day. Ear infection, stomach virus, congestion & coughing makes for an unhappy baby. Abby doesn’t complain though, but mommy knows she doesn’t feel good. Abby is on day 6 of not feeling well, I called yesterday and asked for an appointment and we took her in this morning. The doctor checked her all over and decided to send her for a chest x-ray since she had a lot of crackling in her chest; they wanted to ensure that she didn’t have phenomena. Chest x-rays on a 7 month old baby = no fun! Abigail was such a trooper though. They took 3 separate pictures. I had to wear a shield that weighed quite a big and hold her in place. She was such a trooper though. At one point she was laying on her side and I had to hold both her arms above her head. She looked right at me and yelled “daddy”. The x-ray tech and I both thought it was funny. They told her that she took excellent pictures, which I already knew that. I asked the doctor if I waited too long to bring her in and they said I didn’t, but next time I am just going to take her right away. I would rather pay a 20$ co-pay than wonder. The doctor said that she could see in her chart where I had called 4 times in the past few days. So after we went to the doctor’s I knew it would be a little while before her prescription so we ran to Wal-Mart and bought her an Elmo Live Encore. We play with it about every time that we go to Wal-Mart, we pinch his nose and he makes the truck honk noise. She always giggles smiles and reaches for him. I thought after the morning she had, she really needed Elmo. We picked up her prescription and paid a little extra to have it banana flavored. Abby gobbled up her ½ teaspoon and thought it was the best thing in the world. When we got home, we drank more pedilyte and played with her Elmo some. She thought he was so funny, she just watched him sing, dance and tell jokes. She is asleep now, and has been sleeping for about 2 hours. Extra cuddles and kisses hopefully will speed up the recovery process!

Yesterday we were sitting in the floor playing. Her diet the past few days have been soy milk, cheerios and pedilyte. It is funny because when I feed her right before I give her a bite, I say “bite bite”. Yesterday while we were in the floor I put some cheerios down there for her. She picked up one and held her arm out and said bite bite. She is such a smart little girl. I love to hear her little voice. She will also try to put her pacci in my mouth. I always tell her no thank you and then she will try again later. I guess she assumes that since she likes everything to go to her mouth, mommy would too!
Between the snows this winter and time off for Abby being sick, this is not good for my waist line! I bet I have gained 2-3 lbs. I am going to go hard at it and try to lose my weight when she starts feeling better. I had started the couch to 5k running plan, and doing ok with it I have come to the conclusion that I am not a runner though. I think doing something new is fun at the gym, but I don’t see how I can ever love running! Tomorrow if Abby sleeps a lot, after I finish the work I brought home with me, I really need to put the music back on my iPod. Several several months ago I somehow managed to delete all the music on it and have not put it back on there yet. I wish it would just magically appear back on there, but I have had no such luck yet!

I called the daycare today just like every day at noon and check on Abigail. They told me that she was doing wonderful and that she was sitting in the floor playing and talking to her pictures. She has a child’s photo book that holds 6 pictures in it and has a teether on the end of it that she loves, and needless to say it is waterproof. They said that she just loves to play with it while sitting in the floor. They said that she will flip open to a picture and go “dadadadada maaaa dadadadada maaaaa”. I think this is just so sweet, we are working on her calling me mommy though, but I am happy with maaaaaaa right now. Jason actually told me while he was getting her ready yesterday morning that she would say moooom a few times, she must have wanted her mommy. They told me that earlier in the day that they were playing some toddler tunes and her and Cheyenne were dancing and having the best time. I hope that she gets her a long nap in tough! I love for her to get a lot of sleep there so she is ready to play when she gets home in the evenings. We still can’t seem to get her out of her evening nap. We feed her dinner at 5:00 and it never fails, she always goes to sleep after that for at least 30 minutes or so. I can’t wait to pick up my little Abby roo roo today, to see her hold those little hands out for her maaaaaaa.
