Welcome Home!

She's arrived! Our beautiful, sweet, baby girl. Actually, she arrived awhile ago already - July 6th to be exact. But life with a newborn is busy and exhausting, so I haven't had much of a chance to blog until now.  Our little Abigail is quite a blessing - at least when she's not keeping us up for hours during the night. ;) She's a content little baby - a big change from when Emily was a baby. 

Speaking of Emily, she is LOVING being a big sister! She's helpful and talks all the time about how much she loves Abby and how Abby is the best baby ever. I can`t wait until Abigail can start to return the love to Em. Emily always says to her, ``Look at those big eyes!`` and has recently started to mimic me when Abigail cries, saying, ``Oh, I know... it`s okay.`` Too cute!!

Until next time...

One Week Left!

Only one week left until we get to meet the newest addition to our family. Provided the baby doesn't arrive before, I am scheduled to be induced next Monday! I REALLY can't wait, for a number of reasons, but the nerves are starting to get worked up too. Not sure I'm ready to do it all over again...

I've been very tired the last week or two, had a bit of a health scare with the baby that put me in the hospital for two days of testing (everything turned out well), and have just had a feeling of permanent discomfort. I'm ready to have my body back. :)

Emily's very excited that the baby is coming soon. I'm not sure she realizes the limitations the baby will have for at least a few months, but she's excited all the same! She'll be a great big sister!

Our weather has finally been nice, instead of rain everyday. Em and I picked our first 5 strawberries of the season today. Our patch has significantly diminished production this year - we'll have to replace the plants next year, I'm sure.

Not much else is new. My diabetes health nurse thought I might have to take a second type of insulin at mealtimes, in addition to my once-a-day shot. But after reviewing my numbers with her this morning, she gave me a pass for the last week. Thankful for small blessings, as I was not looking forward to having a needle 4 times a day. Apparently, I'll be done with the insulin as soon as I have the baby, and will need to get further testing to confirm that the GD has gone away, a few weeks later.

Until next time...
