Abigail, Joseph, and I are off to Missouri. We may or may not post for awhile so here's a little Abigail to tide you over. By the way, we took Abigail in for her 9 month check up yesterday. She needs to gain weight-- still only 14 pounds and one ounce! Luckily, the doctor said, "I have a hard time getting too worried because just look at her!" which consoled me a bit when I received the after-visit print-out which listed the diagnosis, "Failure to Thrive". That is a sickening phrase to a mother's ears and heart. We are supposed to try to increase her caloric intake with red meat, whole milk yogurt, butter in her cereal, olive oil in her veggies, etc. And take her back for a weight check next month. The doctor also did some blood work for tests.
She speaks! It is official, Abigail says "Dada" when talking about her Daddy!
