Daddy's Promotion, originally uploaded by brookiej1.

What an exciting morning! We got to *see* Daddy & be a part of his promotion -- we were there via VTC. It was so special. We are thankful for all the people who helped us make it possible. Abby loved seeing Brad, but didn't know quite what to make of all the ruckus. It was her first official military event! She likes the luncheons, so she'll just have to get used to this type of event. She did great. It was so wonderful to see Daddy!! Can't wait to really see him at home!

Mmmm ... thanks Daddy!

Isn't it cute how Daddy managed to pick out flowers that matched Abby's dress?! hahaha.

This is right before she decided she wanted him somewhere else. Poor Indy Dog! :) He puts up with a lot!

Cowgirl Boots!

Abby did not want to put these in the cart at Target ... now, she wants to wear them all the time! :) These boots were made for walking ...

They are all smiles. Abby just put on her very own Dora pull up. Keep in mind that I'm not sure why I buy the things. She is interested some days & not on others. Potty training will probably not get a big push from me due to our upcoming road trip. :) If she shows more interest, I won't stop her, but I'm not pushing it yet! We do have a pair of big girl Elmo underwear hanging in her room as incentive. I have another picture of what her back side looked like after she pulled the diaper up! I can't post it, but let's just say that she has a little plumber going on ...

Hopefully, Abby won't be as horrible growing plants as her mother is! It is actually growing right now, so we'll see how far we get with it. Abby likes to check on it every day ... she might be a little TOO interested!

Following in Mommy's foot steps!

Well, I guess she should put the ball through the top of the b-ball hoop, but who's that picky? I'm sure her daddy will have her throwing that ball down & kicking it! Soccer will more than likely be the thing at our house. Depending on where we live, she might be able to do both??

Either way, her pants don't stay up! She has no bottom or hips!

Not the best lighting at the Y ... Pawpaw took this one. My big girl LOVES to go to *gym class* :)

Indy likes it too :)

Abby doesn't like to share the tent with Indy! SO, she likes to zip up the door ... this leads to much doggy sadness.

Abby got a super fun gift from the Simmons Crew! She loves it ... of course, it rained the first day we had it, so this is in the living room!
