Abigail 5 Months Old

Abigail Kathryn turned 5 months old yesterday. I can't believe how fast her infant months have gone. She is such a even tempered, sweet baby who loves to smile and loves her family. She always wants to be included in what everyone else is doing. When she watches Jaron play she looks as if she's going to get up run around with him. She loves observing his every move and feels comforted when he's near. She's rolling over from belly to back, she's sucks on anything she can get to her mouth, and she's still nursing like a champ. She is not quite sleeping through the night yet. She'll still wake up at night, but ususally goes back to sleep without a problem, as long as she has her pacifier.
Here is a video of our darling. Not terribly exciting, but for her age, it's the best she can do... and she sure is cute.

Here's a recap of our baby over the past 5 months.

Happy Birthday Toby!

My God Sent Children

Jaron and Abigail are such wonderful kids. I couldn't have asked God for better children. Yes, they have their moments, as all kids do, but like most mothers, I have a very special place in my heart for my children. I certainly don't deserve to have them. Every day I have to remind myself that they aren't really mine, but God's, which makes me love them even more (if that's possible). They are truely God sent.
Jaron does so well with Abbie. It was like she was always in our house. He didn't even seem as if he needed to go through a transtion stage in getting used to a new baby being around. He loved her from the beginning. Now he adores her! I'm looking forward to when they're old enough to play together. I'm sure he is too.
