We told Abigail she would see fireworks for the very first time that night. She was so excited she gave us a typical, cute Abigail smile. Luckily, we had a camera handy. :P
She was so eager to see the fireworks, she kept asking when they would begin. So we finally distracted her with visit to the swing. She seemed to enjoy it pretty well.
Because she was still anxious and impatient about the fireworks, mom and dad decided to let her try her hand at driving her cousin Caitlin's car. She did pretty well, but isn't ready for stick shift yet!
Finally, it's dark and mom holds Abigail while dad kindly gives mom a shoulder rub. Abigail handled the fireworks pretty well. She tensed up a little at first, but then she relaxed and enjoyed a few fireworks, before she fell asleep. :P Must have been worn out by all the pre-fireworks activities!
Mike, Jenny, and Caitlin Kampff. (Jenny is Chris's sister.) We had a great time with the Kampffs on July 4th and look forward to next year.

Though she's learned to suck her thumb, Abigail still loves to try to eat both of her hands at the same time. But to quote the sweet little old lady at the grocery store when she first saw Abi, "She's delicious!" I can only assume her hands are indeed delicious, which is why they are almost always in her mouth!
Abigail is already asking for the keys to the car. Here is our compromise. I don't mind saying...she gets cuter and cuter everyday! And she has a beautiful disposition. And did I mention she's now sitting up on her own, has found her thumbs and her feet? Oh yeah! And she's giggling too. Okay, I'll stop! :)
