Happy Birthday Annabelle!
We welcomed Annabelle Naomi into our family and into the world on January 14th, 2012 at 3:53pm. What a complete blessing she is! We are thrilled to have her in our family.
The labor and delivery was long and hard, just as with Jonah. The labor lasted pretty close to 24 hours and was tiring and painful. However, of course, I would endure this 100 times over to meet my little princess.
So far she has been a bit more fussy than I remember Jonah being. She has some pretty bad reflux, which our pediatrician put her on medicine for. Hopefully, that is going to make it better. She has been a pretty good sleeper so far and is eating like a champ! At her last doctor's appointment she was 8lbs 6oz, which means she has gained back the weight she lost after her birth plus 1 oz.
As many of you moms out there know, there really aren't words to express the joy that is felt in welcoming a baby into the world. I am still overwhelmed with joy and happiness from this little bundle. So blessed to have her and just so excited to see what her future holds. I pray that Annabelle grows up to love Jesus and honor Him with her life.
Thank you Jesus for the blessing of being this precious baby girl's momma and thankyou Annabelle for making me a momma of 2. I am blessed beyond words and SO THANKFUL. You are a beautiful baby and I cherish every moment of being your momma.
The proud Big Brother!
