Abigail Margaret Michelle...Mama's lil' dolly...

This is the birth announcement I wrote for the weekly paper next week..I was too late for this week's edition.

Hunter would like to announce the arrival of his baby sister, Abigail Margaret Michelle. Abby arrived on June/27/03 at 1:24am at LHG-Russell St. Site. She weighed in at 8lbs 6oz's and is 21" long. Proud and ecstatic are parents Beth and Rob. Abby is the fifth grandchild for Donald and Margaret M. and third grandchild for Keith and Pirjo T. Momma would like to extend her thanks to Dr. B, Dr. R, and Dr. G. An extra special thank-you to nurse Liz for her wonderful support during labour and for delivering Miss Abby. We would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the nurses on the 5th and 6th floors for their kindness and professionalism...especially Sally and RPN Jackie for the supreme care we received.

I totally keep forgetting to print off the announcement...I will have to later tonight.

My lil' baby has her tears now! She was screaming her pretty head off while I was in the line at drive-thru and when we got home I noticed her lil' face was wet with tears. Awwww.

This morning Abby slept long enough for me to make the beds, clean the bathroom, do a load of laundry and hang it on the line!!! I then fed her and dusted after I was done. She was quite content to sit in her seat and watch the fan go back and forth!!! A very productive day!

Apparently people all over town are telling Papa M. what a cute baby Abby is...I only wish he would show more interest in her. He was the exact same when I had Hunter though and now they are great pals.

I finally printed off her birth annoucement...I wanted it in this week's edition but apprently I was too late for that.

My lil' girl has given me some beautiful smiles today!!!! I hope her dada is willing to give me some smiles tomorrow when I ask him to sign everything....shame.

What a liar I am! I never asked him to sign anything last week because he still had a sore ear. :confused: :shootself:

Abby is a joy! She is a pretty happy baby most of the time but she had a sore tummy again today...it is always on Sunday. I forgot that eggs bother her...when will Mama get a clue?

I can't wait for Tuesday night to see the paper with her announcement!!! Woo!

The birth announcement is in!!! :dustyjump: I have to buy 2 extra copies and mail one to Dr. R and to the hospital so the nurses can see. I still have to make my 6 week appt check-up with Dr. Rutledge. Come on Lizzy!

Abby has been really fussy all day today...a sore tummy due to the fact I ate pizza for dinner yesterday. So far eggs and pizza are a no no.

These were taken tonight.

Abby's right eye is all crusty and runny. I am going to have to read up on this in my book and then take her to the walk-in clinic if necessary. This parenting thing really makes you stressed out. I love my children and hate it when they are sick.

We had to take her to the walk-in clinic as I suspected a case of thrush as well...I was right about the eye infection and the thrush. Eye infection is almost gone but the thrush I have a feeling will linger and I will have to take her back. :roll:

She is eating better, not on and off like she was...she does this at night once or twice but I know her mouth must feel better a lil' bit as she is way more calm. My nipples are still burning a lil' bit but that is getting better too.

We are still suffering from thrush 11 days later.... :banghead: One trip to the walk-in clinic and one trip to the ER later and I still have to take her to the doctor. As a result of using the GV, she has mouth blisters...they really bothered her tonight. It is horrible stuff. Many women quit bf as a result but I think some are not aware that it strikes bottle fed infants as well.

Surprisingly she is feeding well and she is being pretty calm about the whole deal. She's a beauty.

I could not get an appt with Bartlett until next Monday...I am not impressed. I think her thrush is going away but I am not sure. :confused: My nipples aren't burning now but still using the lotion.

Abby has slept through the night, 2 nights consecutive!!! I had to wake her up this am at 7:30 because I was engorged!

I am going to pump so my mom can try to give her a bottle as she will be 7 weeks on Friday and I don't think she will be confused.

This afternoon is Abby's doctor appt, like I stated in my journal I hope that he will give me a script for something stronger that will get rid of this, once and for all.

Aunt Shirley was generous and bought the baby, 2 lovely outfits for next summer!!! Yay! She was so good today, she is so laid back and so completely different than Hunter was, just like the pregnancies.

I am blessed. :love3:

We didn't have to wait long at the doc office today...her appt was at 1:30 and we were out by 2:20! Unheard of.

He isn't convinced she still has thrush, but it would be going away right? :confused: He gave me another script in case it returns(please not) and she weighs, 11lbs 5ozs!!!! YAY!

Abby has 2 bottom teeth that you can see thru her gums.... shame. She was an absolutel doll at the inlaws today...she slept most of the time. She doesn't like to eat when there are alot of people around though..too much stimulation. On Wednesday she will get her 2 month shot.

Yesterday Abby was sooooo gassy! OMG! She screamed from 5:30pm until midnight...so not fun. She slept through the night though...I woke her up at 6:30am to feed her as she hadn't eaten a real feed since 9:30pm....I love that lil' baby.

Another fussy evening...I let her cry it out...she was with me...not in her bed or anything but I held her and I didn't give her the soo-soo...and after 30 minutes she settled to have a good 15 minute feeding...what is up with this child?

:wow: it has been almost one year since I posted in this journal!!!!

Abby is, 16 mos old, weighs in at, 20lbs, 5ozs.....she is still bfing, and her fave food is french fries from Mc Donald's!

She started walking at 15 mos, and is a very, busy girl.....she enjoys picking through the garbage can, tossing the V.C.R. onto the floor, eating popcorn, her bath, and loves her Nana to pieces!

She is our angel.
