Four months

Abby had her four month well visit on Wednesday. She is growing right on track. She is now weighing in at 15.4 lbs and is 24 inches long, putting her in the 75th and 50th percentile respectively.

The doctor also said we could start to introduce solid foods. So we started yesterday with some rice cereal. Abby doesn't really like it. She will put it in her mouth, but then tends to spit it back out. I've done some reading on some of the online message boards and other moms suggested putting fruit or veggies in the cereal to add a little more taste. We will try that this weekend.

Here are some pictures of our first 'solid food' experience:

Heading north...

We've picked a date and purchased tickets... we are coming to New England from July 17 - 20. We fly into Boston and other than that it the schedule is up in the air. We will make it up to Maine, hopefully to spend a night with the McDonalds in Kport (if they will have us) and make a trip up to Portland to visit Uncle Mitch and Aunt Geri.

And hopefully we can stay with Ciolinos inbetween or something like that. :) I'll keep you all posted as we solidify plans!

How did it get to be April 16??

Where did time go?? I feel like it was just a few days ago that I posted last. I'm a bad blogger. It probably doesn't count, but I'm I have been thinking about a lot of posts and I have them all in my head. If only I could find the time to write them all day.

A short recap of what has happened the over the last two weeks. Passover started last Wednesday night and ended tonight (Yeah for bread!!). On the first night, we were up in Harrisburg - just for the seder. Then we went up to Philadephia on Saturday night for the big Goldman family seder. We met up with Gram and Grampy Goldman. They were so excited to met Abby for the first time. And it was great to see all the Goldman family members.

This weekend is yard upkeep weekend. We are planting flowers and putting down mulch. It is suppose to be in the 70s on Saturday. (We are so excited - it has been cold and raining for the past week). I know I shouldn't talk, since we didn't really get any snow this winter. Guess I'm getting spoiled by the Maryland weekends.

I promise I'll post more. I'll have to make a time each night...

Here are some pictures of the Abster!
