We welcomed Abigail Miriam Therese Andrews into the world on Thursday, February 25th at exactly 9am after only 4 and a 1/2 hours of labour. We are so in love with our new little treasure and feel so blessed to be parents to two beautiful and healthy girls. I am feeling really well after only 6 days, just tired and a bit sore still (stitches) but otherwise happy to be home and really enjoying my time nursing Abigail and getting to know her better.
I was reminded yet again how amazing my husband is throughout the labour, how gentle and loving and patient he is. I am grateful for such a man of God by my side when I am in need. My mom stayed with Lucy and was so good to her! What a gift to have her close by. Lucy is already saying Abbie which makes me want to cry with pride nearly every time she says it. She has been throwing some random tantrums and i’m hoping that when we get back into a routine she will settle down a little. All in all she loves her little sister though and asks to see her first thing in the morning.
Thank you to the many family and friends who have offered their prayers, time, support and meals to help us out in this last week. We are so blessed to have you in our life and we look forward to making lots of family memories with you in them! Also, congrats to Jaclyn and Francis who will be Abigail’s Godparents. We are so honored that they said yes! We know that Abbie will be blessed to have them in her life as they offer their faith and love.
