~Our baby girl IS HERE!!!!~

 ~THANK YOU for your prayers...They worked!!!~
During Comargo camp last week I let myself "cheat" a little in what I ate  (a treat here, a treat there) because I knew that baby was due to be born this week, and I've EATEN VERY C.A.R.E.F.U.L.L.Y. for these 9 months so deserved some yummy goodies near the end.  =D
All in all I only gained around 6 to 7 lbs. with this pregnancy. =)
Wednesday, Aug. 20th, dawned with lots of rain.
I had been pretty sick to my stomach most of the night, so didn't get much sleep at all.  I felt exhausted and knew that it would have to be GOD if I could make it through my BUSY day of delivering a baby!
~Here we are leaving for the hospital.~
 ~We got there at 9:00 A.M.
Because YOU PRAYED...
~This was my easiest delivery ever!!
~They induced me at 11:45.
~Broke my water at 3:24
~I got my epidural at 4:30
~And she was born at 5:35!!!
 ~Abigail Elizabeth weighed in at 7 lbs. 11 oz.  19 3/4" long.  Head full of dark hair.~
~Here she is with Gramp and Gram.  I was so glad that they could be with us for this special day!!!!!~
 ~Daddy, Mommy, and Abigail~
 ~And 7...became 8!~
 ~Our family with Gramp and Gram.~
 ~Abigail is sooooo SWEET and...
 SO LOVED!!!!~

Oh Heather, I checked your blog a hundred times yesterday hoping you had Laura posting for you!!! I tried to call several numbers and couldn't get anyone. I just had to find out about you and baby so called your dear dad toady. So thankful you and baby are doing great!!! She is adorable of course. Much love and continued prayers

I am so relieved that this was your easiest delivery. Even then, I see that your sleepless night and the strain of delivery took some toll on you physically. How blessed you are to have this one day to kind of recuperate before you go home to all of your responsibilities. It was such fun to hear Abigail Elizabeth's name. I had been wanting so badly to hear the pretty name you would choose for your sixth baby. I am not disappointed in your choice; her name is so completely unique to her little self. Smile. I give praise to Jesus that this birth has gone well. I trust that Jesus will give strength to each of you as you work with this new little responsibility and as you adjust to another member in your family. Abigail's little fat cheeks are so sweet. Both Grandpa and I said that we wish we could kiss those soft cheeks. Maybe someday.... With much love and gratitude that you are such a good mama to each of your children, Mom and Dad D
PS - We are happy with our Phillip, too. We are pleased with his firmness that is thickly frosted over with love and gentleness towards his little family flock. Mom D

Ellen Dickinson said...

Awwww, she's beautiful, just like her sisters and brothers. Congratulations on the easier delivery! Love you all, her grand-Aunt Ellen

(P.S. I added Abigail to the family tree, and realized I don't have Noah's middle name and in my old age I don't remember it...will you give me that information, please?)

Karen Walden said...

I too had been checking your blog frequently on Wednesday evening for updates! :). So glad she is here and perfect! Sounds like everything was smooth sailing for you. Congrats on a beautiful baby girl.

Dear Heather,
I am so very happy for you all! What a sweet little blessing. She is beautiful and I love the name you gave her. We are very partial to "A" names :). Hope you have a swift recovery and lots of help! Love you!

Abigail Kuhn said...

She is adorable!!! Congratulations! I kept checking the blog waiting for news of her arrival! I love her name as well! Abigail is mine and we were going to name our Elyssa, Elizabeth up until 2 weeks before they were born and both of us felt like Elizabeth just didn't fit for her! :) I have loved the name Elizabeth since I was in my early teens and still hope we have the chance to use it one day! :) CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!
