Abigail Jean

Abigail Jean was born on July 21st, 2008 --- 8 lbs. 10 oz. She was born on her cousin Josh's Birthday. So our kids like to be born on other peoples Birthdays. We had originally planned to have Abbe born on Gracelyns Birthday. The C-section was scheduled but Abbe was making me TOO sick and at our appointment on Monday July 21st our doctor said I was done being pregnant and she scheduled our C-section that night. It was amazing how much better I instantly felt after she was delivered. So Gracelyn and Abbe are 10 days shy of being exactly 2 years apart. Having a C-section the second time around was great. So much easier than the first. I healed well and was mowing the lawn three weeks after she was born. Abbe is beautiful and we love her very much but she has been a little more difficult of a baby than Gracelyn was. She took longer before she was sleeping through the night and had longer fussier periods in the evenings. Gracelyn has adjusted fairly well to Abbe. She can be very loving but also rough at times. I am sure they will enjoy getting on each others nerves as they get older.
