Abigail Finds Her Hands

Abigail recently discovered her hands.  Since discovering her hands she enjoys clasping them together and holding on to objects like the animals on her activity mat.  It is so exciting to watch her grow and learn new things.

100 Day Celebration

Abigail is 100 days old today.  In the Korean culture a baby's 100th day is called baekil.  Families celebrate baekil as a celebration of the blessing of life and to wish the baby good health and future luck.  Also, according to Korean culture, on the baby’s 100th day in this world she has existed for 365 days since she was created in the womb.  It is said the duration of pregnancy is 280 days which is based on the menstrual cycle.  From the actual conception date the length of pregnancy is about 265 days.  So it becomes 365 days when a baby becomes 100 days old.  So baek-il is really another dol (first birthday party in Korean) congratulating the baby’s successful first year.
Picture #1: We presented Abigail with a gold ring his parents bought her as part of the baekil celebration.

Three Months Old

My sweet daughter is three months old today!

Sunday, April 15, 2012


There is a show on TV called Ridiculousness. That is the word that comes to mind when I look at the clothes hanging in Abigail's closet, which does not take into account the clothes in her dresser. I think she may have more clothes than Ted and me combined.

Hanging Out

As Abigail gets older and her neck muscles get stronger it is fun finding new places for her to hang out. Obviously her highchair is the latest addition to her places to spend time and have fun.
