Abby turns one (on July 27th)!!!

Happy Birthday Abigail! We Love you!
We took her to her favorite place in the afternoon...the pool!

She loves this little fountain. It kept coming up and getting her face.

Some shots before the party.

Still not quite sure about it.

Abby loved her presents

Abby's stats: She has 6 teeth, 10 fingers, and ten cute toes:) I can't find the paper with her real stats so I will have to fix that later! For her birthday we had homeade macaroni and cheese (thank you Pioneer Woman) and pigs in a blanket. Abby had her first cupcake. She wasn't sure what to do with it at first, but then she tried the frosting and decided it was worth snarfing down. We just had our immediate family over so it was Brady, Raquel, Ashley, and my mom. It was a great day with my cute girl.

Abby's 1 year old photo shoot

Brandon's cousin Jana took Abby's one year old photos and since there are too many good ones to have a favorite I had to post a bunch (I'm sure the grandparents won't complain though!) There are still a ton of other ones that I love too! Thanks Jana, you're awesome:)

Pioneer Day

We didn't do a whole lot on pioneer day to celebrate but we did have fun! In the morning, Brandon and Brady surprised me, Raquel, and Ashley by sending us to the spa for pedicures. After the spa we went to the Ryan's for a BBQ and swimming and then we ended the day with a trip to park city for some outlet shopping!

My little shoplifter!!

Visit with Grandma and Grandpa Hess

We must not have been very entertaining on the way to Brigham City

Grandma and Grandpa Hess are amazing. If the world is ever coming to an end you will find us at their house:) They are the most self-sufficient people I have ever met, everything we had for lunch came out of their garden. They must have atleast a year supply of food storage with all kinds of dried fruits and vegtables, herbs, water, wood, and anything else you would ever need. If I were half as prepared as they are I would be in good shape!

Pizza Factory

The cutest waitress there:)

Abby loved Brandon's lemonade
Last night was Ashley's first night as a real waitress (not in training anymore!) So we all decided to head over to Pizza Factory and see her in action! She was great, we never had an empty glass and the food was delicious! If any of you are around the Provo area and looking for some good food I definitely recommend it.

My girl loves her some prunes

Abby has been doing thing funny thing lately whenever we feed her where she has to grab the spoon and shove it into her mouth. She never wants to give the spoon back but eventually she realizes if she doesn't she won't get anymore food. This makes feeding her long and difficult so I usually just give her foods she can feed herself...otherwise this is what she ends up looking like:)

Abby had a big day yesterday. She had her first pigtails, she stood for about 20 sec. by herself, and I'm pretty sure she said mama. I don't know if I would consider it her first word since she had no idea what she was saying, but she did say it all night long:)

Just one of those days...

This was yesterday before church. Our church doesn't start until 12:30 so by the time we were leaving Abby was ready for a nap. Poor thing wouldn't fall asleep there, but as soon as it was over and we put her in her car seat it took about half a second for her to fall asleep. Thank goodness!

Minute to Win It

Funniest thing happened yesterday. We went to our ward activity where we played Minute to Win It and while we were there Abby was crawling all around the floor. She ended up crawling right behind a guys chair who had no idea she was there and she did her funny giggle. Sometimes she does it really loud and this was one of those times. Well it scared him so bad, he jumped and then looked behind him to see her staring up at him. It was one of the funniest things ever. Everyone kept laughing about her cute laugh because she did it all night long. She is so entertaining, I love it!

Giants Fan in Training

Brandon and I went to Denver the weekend of July 4th to watch a couple baseball games since the Giants were playing the Rockies. My mom flew in to hang out and watch Abby for us for the Friday game. While we were at the game she and Abby walked downtown and had a great time at the street fair on 16th Street. I had a bunch planned for Saturday of things to do in Denver but we ended up not doing any of it and just relaxed. It was nice just to take a nap and not run from place to place. That afternoon we all went to another game and this time we got seats that were higher up but it was perfect for Abby. Right behind our seats they had this carpeted area where she could crawl and I could still see the game.
This one is a little blurry but she was all over the place so it's the best I could get.

This little boy followed Abby everywhere and kept hugging her. They had a lot of fun together.

We got a couple autographs including Barry Zito.

Abby wasn't a big fan of the paddle boating.
