Meet Abigail Rose!

<


Miss Abigail Rose graced us with her presence 10-09-08 at 8:20 p.m. She turned out to be a very accommodating child.

(The nurses kept saying to each other"baby girl. 2020." And my first addled thought was, how can they possibly know her vision at this point? They were telling her time of birth. Military time. Duh!;)

(She has wispy blonde hair and looks a lot like Kindyl did as a baby)

She weighed in at a hefty 5lbs 12oz. I was a little concerned that she didn't even reach 6 lbs. But it turned out we were very lucky she was so tiny and it took her such a short time to make her appearance. She had her cord wrapped TWICE around her little neck. So if she were bigger and took longer to come out, she could have had major problems. As it was, she was perfectly healthy!(not to mention a lot easier on mom;)

(You can tell how tiny she is when you see her in the car seat.)

When they wrapped her in a blanket and handed her to Wendell he called her "Chipotle" because she was about the size of one of their burritos. But we decided "Abigail" was a little easier to say;)

19 people know I love comments!:

Lets trade. I want a newer, fresher baby and yours is absolutely beautiful. She looks so cute with that ginormous bow on her head. In those first two pictures Wendell sent over email, I thought she looked just like Janee. Weird. I can't wait to meet her.

Congrats to you all Sherry! That is exciting and so glad to hear all is well. You know Oct 9th is my Angies birthday.
She's gonna be a spitfire.
Enjoy the easy going stuff now. Libras may look for the fairness in life but are a bit opinionated (Gary is a Libra too). A tad stubborn. Smart though.
