Getting so big!

Well, our little Abby is getting bigger! The midwife was just here for her weekly visit to check on us. Abby now weighs 10 pounds 6 ounces! She is getting so big. Quite a ways from what she weighed when she was born (7.2). The midwife also measured her this time and she is just over 22 inches long.

Last night Abby was quite unsettled after church. Nick had gone to do a service with Sarah's family so we were home alone. I wanted to wait up for Nick, so Abby and I curled up together on the couch and watched a DVD together. Most of the time I just sat looking at Abby while she slept in my arms. She is so beautiful! It is an honour to be her Mum. She is such a good baby as well. Last night she slept for 5 1/2 hours. Which is great for me! :)

This photo was taken a few days ago. Doesn't she look so peaceful? We don't purposely leave her hands out. No matter how tight we wrap her she finds a way to get her hands out. She is just so cute! (no, I'm not biased at all - her Grandma thinks she's adorable as well!)

WOW!!!!!!!! she is so big and beautiful. i have four girls, Lilymae, who is seven , and the TRIPLETS who are Rebekah (Bekah), Estella (Ella-Stella), and Katie-Sue (Kate), they are 4. They are such a blessing. people often say i havemy hands ful, but they are SUCH a HUGE blessing. i aggree with Rebekah Michelle Williams, have MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i would have more but ut cost lots if you can not natrually have little babies. The triplets were conceived from expensive fertility pills, and Lilysue from IVF ((we [Brad and I] didn't know that it was wrong then)). i think that little Abby is absoloutly adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are a brilliant mum (i can say that and i havn't even met you!), i see you love and adore little girl.once again i aggree with Rebekah Michelle Williams :-).
