Clayson Family Pictures 2013

We took these a while ago...end of July before Bradley left on his mission.  Megan did not love the whole experience.  She was happy about it for about 2 minutes and then we got some pretty awesome disgusted and mad faces.  :)

My Baby is Better than Yours :) -- 4 Months

I put that as the title of my post because when I think about Abby I honestly can't imagine her being a better baby.  Seriously!  She is an angel baby.  The amount of time she has spent crying in her life is freakishly small.  A week or two ago Abby woke up at 6 a.m. and was fussy and it took me about 10 minutes to get her back to sleep.  I felt like a total idiot during that time because I had NO idea how to help her settle down and get to sleep.  That is the first time I haven't been able to just lay her in her bed wide awake and have her go right to sleep.  Literally the first.  She is just the most chill, happiest baby around.

And the chubbiest!  :)

And Megan still loves her.  She has graduated to wanting to hold her and carry her around.  A little scary.

Abby loves being on her tummy.  She would take that over her back most of the time.

Megan and Abby thought this was pretty hilarious.

Abby spent most of the past month like this.  This is her trying to roll from her back to her stomach.  She was so close and it would make her so frustrated that she couldn't just finish the job!  But, these past few days she's finally figured it out and the fun diaper changing days have begun.  She doesn't want to be on her back for more than about 2 seconds.

This picture is blurry but it pretty much describes her relationship with our dog Mo.  He always wants to lick her face!  And she is so patient with him.  Sometimes we wonder if he's trying to give her a bath since we are failures in that department...

Abby 3 Month Update

I can remember less facts about Abby at 3 months than at 2.  She seems a lot the same now as she was then.  But here's my best effort...

Abby went from sleeping like this on the couch to her bed this month for naps.  She is a wonderful napper now.  I thought I would have a cat napper forever, but she does great now.

Abby started laughing this past month.  She laughs most for dad and Megan.  Megan cracks her up at random times.  She loves watching Megan play.

Megan and her cousin Nathaniel took swimming lessons together this past month and so Abby and Jenna got to spend some quality time together watching.  Jenna is obsessed with Abby...or is it Abby's binky.

Megan still loves her sister and they do a lot of "reading" together.

Abby rolled over from tummy to back a few times this past month, but I don't know if I would say she has learned to roll over.  If she has learned, she's different from her sister.  Once Megan knew how to roll she had to do it all the time, but Abby does it occasionally.

Really Abby? 4 Months? -- 2 Month Update

Abby is four months today.  Seriously!?  Four months?  That happened entirely too fast.  I feel like with Megan by the time she was four months I thought she was so big.  But it's the opposite with Abby.  I feel like she's still a tiny baby.  I'm going to blink and she's gonna be a walking talking maniac like Megan.

So I really want to do a monthly update for the first year.  I did it with Megan and I liked looking back to see how much they grow and change every month.  But I have certainly fallen behind with Abby.  I last did it at one month.  Ha!  So I'm going to try to do a catch up.  Here's Abby at 2 months.

As you can tell from this picture Megan loves her baby sister and wants Abby to do everything with her.

She started smiling this month.  What a doll.

Abby was blessed the first Sunday in July.  She was lucky enough to have all her aunts and uncles around on her blessing day.  She wore the same dress Megan wore which is the same dress I wore.

  • She is a great nighttime sleeper, but she has yet to take a nap in her own bed.  She is a cat napper.
