A great week

We returned to Columbus last night after a great week in New England.

First things first: Here's a link to pictures from our trip, including the beautiful one above. Also, we had our first professional family pictures taken before we left. They are available for viewing on Target's Web site. If you'd like to see them, leave a comment or e-mail me and I'll send you the access code.

As for the trip, Abby seemed to develop a lot while we were gone. She became a lot more social and, best of all, slept through the night (9+ hours) twice! We're figuring it was in part because of all the stimulation and activity that she wasn't accustomed to, but it's still a good sign.

She also was a perfect traveller. She slept most of the time on all three flights, but she was content while awake in the air, too. In the car, she usually sleeps for most of a trip. Thus, flying to New England and driving around to visit people went quite well.

We stayed with Katrina's mom and step dad in Southbridge, Mass., which is about 90 minutes west of Boston. We stayed with them several days and went to visit friends and family in Mass. and New Hampshire other days.

We're off

Abby gets her first plane ride today, as we're heading to Massachusetts to spend the week with Katrina's family.

Have a great week!

Abby is wireless!

Great news! Tonight is Abby's first wireless night. We received permission from the doctor to stop using her heart/apnea monitor, even overnight.

It's been a good, but busy few weeks.

My parents and grandma came to visit over the Thanksgiving weekend, and it was great to see them and host Thanksgiving for the first time. It's also been busy, as always, at work. We had two football teams play in state title games last weekend on top of everything else.

In two weeks, we'll be heading for Massachusetts to spend time with Katrina's family the week before Christmas.

Now, in the news you all care about: Abby continues to thrive. We're pretty sure she's past 10 pounds, and she is getting closer to sleeping through the night. Right now, she is hanging out in her swing that my parents bought for her and considering a nap. I just uploaded a few new pictures to Facebook. You can see them here.
