Will loves making tents and houses with anything and everything we can. Here Josh was attempting to sit in the house with them and read books.
One night last week we did venture out. We went to my sister-in-law's grandfathers house about an hour away. The boys fished and the girls hung around. Abby enjoyed their swing.

Will and Mommy
They LOVE the trampoline.
Abby loves to try and stand on the side and crawls as fast as she can from side to side.
Will wants to go out on this first thing in the morning!
He could play on it 24/7!

and Josh was just trying to get it started!
He got it!
On to another totally unrelated subject... my first eggplant! It is the weirdest looking eggplant I've ever seen. It looks like the shape of a shell almost. We'll see what it turns out to be. At least something is coming in finally!

I am happy that he did it though. The kids LOVE it and it is nice to be able to use that back door. Will now has a place to ride his bike on a smooth surface since we have rocks as our driveway. He is out here constantly. We ate dinner on our patio set out there last night and even though the sun was hitting us in the face, we enjoyed it!
Here is the start...
Yes, that is Abby in the background heading for the side... I put the extra wood around the edges so she can't fall off and right after I took this picture I ran over and got her :)!!
do follow her around every second up here.

A couple weeks ago I took her in for her 9 month visit (at 9 1/2 months) and this is what we found out :
weight: 16 1/2 pounds (15%)
height: 28 1/4 (70%)
head: 17 3/4 (80%) -
I don't believe this one because she has the smallest head - or so we think she does.... so I'm going to have to measure it myself and see what I get.
She is now walking around holding on to things and will stand up on her own, just not trying to take steps on her own yet. I don't think it will be too long before she does though.
Still no teeth, but she eats everything that we eat and no baby food. She loves to do whatever her brother is doing and also loves to be outside. If she is in site of a door and I open and close it for any reason, she starts screaming. She has a very strong personality, although she is shy because when she is around others she is usually quiet and just observes. She claps her hands all the time and points a lot too. Josh and Will both pointed all the time as babies.... so its cute to see her do it too.
She really loves to cuddle now when I get done feeding her and gives kisses. This makes my day. I absolutely love cuddly babies and she never really has been one until now.
Whenever I ask the Lord to give me joy, I just need to look at my sweet little children!
Last night we were looking up what our names all mean and Abby's means, "My father is joyful." That is fitting with her middle name being joy.... so she has a lot of JOY in that name! Sweet baby of mine, I hope you are filled with Joy all your years!
(I'm sure Gigi's smiling!)
