Bowling and awards

Not much new to report in Abby-land, so we'll go with a work update instead:

1. My love affair with high school bowling will continue Friday when I cover the state bowling tournament. Newark High School qualified for the event, and there's no way the rest of the sports staff will have time to cover the event this week because of state wrestling and basketball playoffs.

2. We received word yesterday that we (as a staff) have been named finalists in 12 categories in the state AP contest. I wasn't nominated individually for anything, but I certainly contributed in one way or another (usually editing) to most of them. The ones I was most involved in would be best daily sports section and best Web site. For a complete list of the categories were finalists in, click here.

High chair!

Today's the big day: Abby is going to get her first real food. Now, of course, it will just be a tiny bit of rice cereal. It's still a big step. As you can see above, Katrina bought Abby's high chair yesterday. She also bought a playpen.

There's not a lot of other new things to report. Abby is moving a lot more these days, rolling over constantly and scooting around a bit on (and off) her floor mat.

She also loves playing with us more, especially anything involving a song.

Abby is 14 pounds, 11 ounces as of today.

Also, she started rolling over last week!

That is all.
