I just can't resist this smile

Abby has truly captured the hearts of everyone in the family. Caleb mentions frequently that she is so cute that he just can't stop looking at her. I know exactly what he means.
The smiles. Oh, the smiles. I'd pay money for them. Luckily, she hands them out, even in her sleep, for free. This is one of my favorite outfits on her because I just love the little pockets for her hands. So cute.
She is growing by leaps and bounds. I can't believe this is the same little baby from 7.5 weeks ago. Of course, she wasn't that little then, either. But, look at her! She's getting the rolls on her legs and arms that I remember from Caleb and Meagan so well.

I've been doing a little sewing again, now that Christmas is over, the butchering is done, and things have settled down some. Yesterday, I finished Abby's stocking.
I had done the cross-stitch part a while ago. I can't remember when I finished, but it was before we moved. Anyway, I didn't finish the stocking part before Christmas, but that was okay because the midwife gave her an adorable "Baby's First Christmas" stocking. So, I just finished it now. I thought about just putting it away for later, but if I did that, I would forget about it until next Christmas and it wouldn't get done. Besides, I'm hoping to need another for next Christmas. That is, if the Chinese adoption process doesn't slow down any more. Of course, if it slowed any further, it'd be going backwards. But, I digress.

Next on my sewing table is a quilt for Abby. Just a small one to snuggle with, like Meagan's.

What a sweet baby girl! She's BEAUTIFUL! Almost (I repeat, Almost) makes me want another baby. I think I'll wait 20 years and hope for grandkids. :0)

Those are some of the cutest baby photos! What a little angel she is.
The stocking turned out beautifully.

Thought I'd check in with the Underwoods. Abigail is absolutely adorable. Can't believe how big she is already! Her stocking is very nice! You're so crafty!
