How does she do it?

When we put her to bed she's wrapped.
When we get her up she's unwrapped.

What's up with that tongue?

This morning when I went to get Abby from her crib, she greeted me with her tongue sticking out.  Donnie said this continued all day.  Rather than sitting with her mouth closed or even open for that matter...she sat wither tongue out!  When I got home from work...nothing had changed...tongue stuck out!  It was so funny!!  I don't know if this is a "milestone" discovering your tongue but whatever it is she's into sticking it out today!

Moments before this picture was taken, Abby was giggling and squealing.  Everyone said when she laughed it would melt our hearts and it sure did!  Now, it was brief but it was a giggle for sure!  I try not to post pics of Abby without clothes on but this is my best smile pic yet so I had to overlook the fact that she's only wearing a diaper.  In my defense, she was on the changing table and had JUST been changed.   I wish I could describe the sounds she is currently making.  They are precious!!

Guess what Abby can do now?

Yep!  That's right!  She can hold a bottle!  We thought it was a freak thing the first couple times she did it but it's official now because she does it all the time.  She just grasps the sides and holds it!  Side note...we also had our 2nd post-placement visit today at the adoption agency.  It went great!  Our next one will be in our home in December and it will be the final one.  We are half way to finalization!

She loves it

Abby is getting the hang of eating (rather than sucking a bottle).  Daddy is ready to feed her cereal several times a day!  It's humorous to watch.  I still think more is making it ON her than IN her!  Have I mentioned that I love her so much???

Hanging out with Henson

While the parents ate at Jason's Deli, Abby and Henson hung out.  I should have taken a picture a few moments later when both were conked out.  Abby does a great job at restaurants.  She sits sweetly in her car seat on the car seat holder and watches us eat the good stuff.  Someday she will join us and eat the good stuff....
