Stairs and Teeth

So, you'd think that Abbie would be done getting new teeth for awhile, but no...Abbie cut ANOTHER tooth this weekend. One cute little tooth on the bottom this time.

We were hoping that Abbie would be slowing down a bit on the developmental aspect of things, but we were sadly mistaken. Abbie learned how to crawl up stairs this weekend. She began with the bottom two (up to a small landing), but she can now crawl ALL THE WAY up the staircase. (Hopefully we will have some video tomorrow..stay tuned!).

Oh my are we in for it!

Teeth, Rashes, and all around crazies..Word.

Well the last couple of weeks have been a bit CRAZY in our house. first Abbie got sick with Roseola, fever and then a rash. Then I got sick. It was so bad both Grandma's had to come to take care of us! Just when everyone was feeling better, Abbie and I went out of town for a week to Duluth. Thankfully, Abbie is a great traveller. She just sits in her car seat (we've switched to the non-infant carrier variety last week) and sleeps.

We had a great weekend visiting people and places, too many to mention tonight. Abbie did however get a horrible yeast diaper rash (ICK!) and another rash virus! We knew that snot and poop filled diapers were in our future, but who knew babies get a variety of different rashes as well! She is comfortable for the most part and the anti-fungus treatment seems to be going well (ok, enough on that). Abbie weighed in at 17lbs 12oz at 8 1/2 months.

But the really exciting news is that............

"Geez mom, could ya dust soon."

Abbie has FOUR new teeth! They all came this weekend! We have been waiting forever for these teeth to make their grand entrance. Pretty soon Abbie is going to look funny when she smiles, but we can't wait. Yes, she cut all of her teeth at the same time (at least the same day or so) and no, she wasn't too cranky. THANK GOD!

Word on the street is that we can now link video to our blog now via You Tube. Once we have that all figured out we'll be adding video. Hopefully within the next week.

Off to LaCrosse this weekend on another great adventure.

More to come....

Just a quick update..

Abbie is crawling, pulling herself up, eating solid foods 3 times a day, and BABBLING like CRAZY!

"Papa, say Cheese!"

"I can see you!"

"Chelsea, I'll give you a dollar if you get me outta here...come on."
