I am 12 weeks old!

I LOVE this face! She amazes me everyday with what she is learning. Last week she got a play mat from her Grandad ad plays on it everyday. She is learning to reach for things and has master kicking and pushing off with her legs and feet. We have tried putting her in the nursery at night and it is tough for mom and dad! Last night was the first night and somehow mom turned the volume OFF for the baby monitor!!! Luckily I woke up, that mommy instincts, just as she began screaming for her early morning meal.
Abigail has already had her first trip to Disney World too! Grandpa J turned 60 last month and we had a family gathering to celebrate! She did great!

I am 3 weeks old!

It is absolutely amazing to think the only three weeks ago Abigail Lynne made her appearance into the world! This weekend will bring in three weeks that we have had her at home! Each day has brought a new challenge for us. Just when Shawn and I think we might have something figured out Abigail changes her mind or we really did not have it figured out after all. Within these three weeks we have watched her eyes open wider and wider as she begins to observe and soak in her vast surroundings. We love watching her learn! We have had adventures to a couple local parks in her stroller, she has made two trips the the University of Tennessee with Granny and I so all my classmates could meet her and we survived a couple trips to Target. best of all.....Shawn and I were able to enjoy a wonderful lunch together, along with Abigail, to celebrate Mother's Day and our new bundle of joy together. Mom is definitely suffering from lack of sleep and has not yet mastered the art of napping during the day. I have learned to sleep sitting up in the rocking chair in the middle of the night while nursing and usually wake up a little nervous that she may have fallen off my lap. That has not been the case yet, she is usually asleep as well.

Abigail Lynne Knapp

I forget to keep this blog up. Sorry to those folks who rely on this for updates on the growing Knapp family. Abigail was born Friday morning, 12:36 am, weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces and 20-1/2" long. She is a solid little girl. Here we are on her first "outing" to a park close by. Her eyes were wide as she soaked up a little sun, all of us needed to get out of the house really. I will try to be better about getting a new picture up every so often. You can bet we are taking pictures of her EVERY DAY!

Just waiting now.....

I guess we can officially be parents now. We have taken our Child Birthing class (and passed I guess). We would leave class with our heads full or more information then we needed most nights. They do well to tell you EVERYTHING that MIGHT happen, the good bad and ugly truths of labor. Just about two months to go, and I hope she takes full advantage of having two more months to go. We have had one shower and it was great! THANK YOU to our South-Doyle football coaching family. Slowly filling up the nursery with little baby things, cute clothes, toys.....all kinds of good stuff. I think we are still feeling both excited and nervous at the same time.

Nursery News

So here is what we have been up to. Our front spare bedroom has been transformed into a nursery! Shawn and I are getting very excited, it has been fun putting this room together for her. Yep, purple......for those of you who know me really well would assume purple was my choice. Not the case, Shawn picked purple, the room is actually two shades of purple. In natural daylight the lighter color does well reflecting light back into the room through the one window. I found the most adorable ceiling fan online (Target) that matches perfectly with our color scheme. You will see some stars on the ceiling too, that is Marcy's doing from when this was her room years ago...thanks Marcy. We have about three months to go, seems like it should go fast. We will try and get a good shot of me and my ever growing belly to put on here as well.
I am in school, will go as long as I can until our little girl makes her appearance into the world. School helps to get me out of the house and out of the stores. We are trying hard NOT to buy up everything we see in sight for the baby. With upcoming showers and grandparents ready to spoil our child we have an idea of what is coming.

Halloween 2009

So here we are....Mrs. Bun in the Oven and Mr. Chef. Hint: Bun is due the end of April. I have not been good about keeping up with the blog. I have been busy in school and Shawn is busy working 7 days a week to make up for my lack of a job.

Marcy is married!!!! She had a beautiful wedding back on October 10th and then she and hubby Andrew spent 10 days on a Mediterranean Cruise, yep we all were jealous.
