I figure it is about time I introduce Annabel to the blog now that she is 3 months old. Let’s just say the last 3 months have been a little busy, but more on that later.
Our cute little girl arrived on 7/2/2012 and she was 7 pounds 2 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. (I like her lucky numbers!) If you are interested in reading the birth story, I posted it on Annabel’s blog. I also posted it under my pregnancy diary. I guess technically the labor lasted a while, but the worst of it only lasted an hour so it wasn’t too bad. And recovery was a breeze this time compared to the c-section that I had with Ethan.
This girl has been amazing, putting up with her overly adoring brother. We tried to prepare Ethan for her arrival, but he seemed to remain pretty clueless. He never talked about the baby. You would ask him questions about the baby and he would look at you with this blank stare, like what are you talking about. Once Annabel arrived that all changed, it was like he knew she was coming all along and it was as if he knew her. She fits in to our family perfectly. Life has just gotten even sweeter with her. It is as if she has always been here.
Most Annabel specific updates will be over on her blog, at least for her first year. Feel free to check up on her over there.
