Alive and Well

Oh Sad! I had no idea how long it had been since I've been on here. Let's see what I can remember for a quick recap:
  • Gabby enjoyed her first trip to Disney World! During the AG General Council in the beginning of August, we took Gabs to the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. While there, I wondered what kind of parents take their 6-week old to Disney World? Apparently some do, because Disney has a "Baby Care Center" in each park. For those of you who may also do the same thing, Baby Care Center is the place to go! Very well done and nice touch to the day. For a really cool story on an amazing day in Hollywood Studios, follow the link here to my mom's blog. Samantha Edwards is my FAVORITE Idol! :-)

  • Gabby is now smiling and laughing up a storm. I read a story a few weeks ago about a research study conducted in Texas where they tracked what happened to new mom's when their babies smiled. What they found was that the brain activity that occurs is similar to what happens when one takes a hit of cocaine. I have no trouble believing that study. When I heard Gabby laugh last week (I mean really laugh . . . belly shaking, consistent laughter), it was intoxicating. I could listen to it all day.

  • Brad and I celebrated our birthdays in September. For his, I went to my first Michigan football game against Notre Dame. Great game and VERY exciting! Then, I turned 30!!!! It was a little weird because with everything else that has happened these last few months, 30 almost seemed like an after-thought. My husband made it so special, however, planning a party full of surprises including a visit from my childhood hero, Psalty the singing songbook. For a recap on the night, you can visit my mom's blog or Brad's blog here and here. What a man. I love you, Baby.
I know there is more, but it's all I can think of now. I'll try and do better in the future. :-)
