Ada's still teeny, an incredible sweetheart, and a calm spirit. Her first little tooth popped in shortly after this picture was taken and that's the one thing she's really irritable about - teeth :) She's currently in 6 month clothing, a size 2 shoe and a size 3 diaper. We skipped her 9 month doctor visit (since it's just a check-up with no shots) but right around 10 months went in for a visit for Abigail and we were able to weigh her while we were there. At 10 months she was a whopping 15lbs! Not quite sure on her height but the pants she has on in this picture are 6 month pants. Ada is hating baby food and it usually takes us a couple days to get through a whole jar, so she eats almost everything we eat (with the exception of meat and harder items). She tries her hardest to keep up with Abby and is navigating around and cruising the furniture with amazing skill! Her favorite show is Yo Gabba Gabba (actually it's all our favorites!) and when it comes on she gets very excited and dances! She's our little sweetheart!
The entire week we were snowed in, Abigail had no desire to go out and play in the snow (much to mommy's delight!). We are definitely not cold-loving, snow-adoring people and much preferred to stay inside our warm house with comfy clothes on! But we were able to get Abigail out twice to play and take some pictures, just so we could document it. Poor Ada didn't even get to go outside during this snow week! It was just too much work for something she didn't even enjoy - so she got to experience it from the comfort of the 'sun' room!
Day #3 of being snowed in for the week, I brought out the pudding...to be used as paint. It seriously sounded like a good idea from a friend (don't worry Carie, I won't mention your name!) but it quickly turned crazy! I didn't tell Abby that it was edible, I thought that maybe, just maybe she would play and paint without making a mess all over herself for a little while. WRONG! The second I put the bowl down she immediately dug in!
Before the tree came down, I decided to take a couple Christmas pictures and put the girls in Christmas outfits one last time for the year. The Santa outfit that Ada's wearing is the same outfit Abigail wore for her first Christmas! It is so fun seeing them both in it!
Grammy and Papa arrived at our house the night of the 26th and immediately walked in with an armful of gifts! Abigail loved it and couldn't wait to see the goodies!
The next morning, Joe's brother Dan and his wife Elizabeth arrived with cousin Amelia! The 3 girls had such a great time playing together! It was a lot of fun to see them interacting together and playing. They even got Papa to get in on the action!

We tried to get some decent studio shots while we had all the cousins together but that turned out to be close to impossible! Each time we put the babies down, they went in opposite directions and just left Abby sitting there watching them!
The Serious Shot
This picture looks like they're talking :)
And the final shot where they're all looking at the camera and not crying/running!
Sweet, toothless smile!
Two cousins getting ready to take off!
And they're off!
After pictures, it was bath time and then more presents!
This is just an idea of how fast Abigail opens presents!
