Abigael updates

Hey friends and fam! Hope your summer is going well. We are busy, busy- as I am sure alot of you are as well. Here's what's going on with our little munchin lately...

She found her toes! She is now eating her feet, I guess we should probably bathe her now... :)

She can now roll over ALL the way and is rolly polly all over the place. I laid her on the floor this morning to eat my breakfast and she rolled herself up into an Abigael taco within 20 seconds flat.

We also took our first trip to the zoo recently. Though she didn't quite know what she was looking at, her mommy and daddy enjoyed it. She was amazed by the fish.

And finally, she let out her first big gut laugh!! We took her for a swim in the pool and Taylor spit water and she laugehd for about 20 minutes straight. (I of course made him keep spitting water until she stopped laughing) Unfortunately we didn't capture it on the camera, but we will try soon as it was the most marvelous sound I think we have ever heard!! Love to all of you. Please let us know what's going on with you guys.

Happy Annibirthdary

WE celebrated our third anniversary last night! woohoo!!!! Taylor and I got a night to ourselves so we took a trip down memory lane...

We started off at the Tower of Americas, which is where we got engaged. The view was even better the second time around.

Then we walked down the Riverwalk (past the place of our first kiss) and went to an amazingly romantic Italian restuarant with live jazz. Aaaaamazing.

Then we went to the Emily Morgan to get dessert... but they were out. Bummer. O well- so fun!!

On a lighter note, last Sunday we celebrated Chris's 18th birthday in style. Complete with pinata, pin the tale on spidey and an amazing balloon game (thank you camp counselors that planned the party) we had a kickin' time. PS- the laughs in this picture are totally NOT posed. Really. Well maybe one. But the karate kick is NOT posed. He is a real ninja.

Casa de Crazies

Summertime!!!! We have been crazy busy here lately... between a visit from the Rogers, out of town guests, fourth of July, weddings- we have been on overdrive.

We were thankful to see Taylor's siblings and mom last weekend and got a long awaited visit from Preston and Molly (his girlfriend). We went to the Riverwalk and showed her the "festive" side of San Antone. We always wish it could be longer, but such a blessing to visit with family.

The next weekend, Tim and Sarah Hammond, our dear friends from Waco, graced us with their presence (and craziness) over July 4th. We all (My bros, Hammonds, my fam, Wakefields- Lane lives with Chad, Whit with us for the summer if it wasn't crazy enough) started it off with a glorious parade. We dressed Abigael and her stroller up and marched with some other random people on the culdesac at the lakehouse. We had one waver, the rest of the people were in the parade. Our parade was complete with a boombox of America songs blasting in our ears. Amazing. We took Abigael out on the boat for the first time too. She fell asleep the moment she felt the wind and the bumps. We had a blast and enjoyed the company.

Abigael learned a new trick the other day. She likes to "talk" now. This happened at first by accident when she was knawing my finger off, and now she cracks herself up with it...
