Abby is now 3 weeks and she is starting to smile and coo. Thankfully she is also stretching her night sleeping out a bit longer so we are getting about 3 hours at a time. Ryan is still obsessed with her and I am constantly finding binkies and stuffed animals on top of her. He tries to help her eat too, but mom isn’t so thrilled about that one. Abby spent Saturday with Daddy and it went quite well, I think by the end of the day though we were happy to be back together. I think she is looking forward to dressing up this weekend and going trick or treating!
I cant believe I was lucky enough to get my Grandpa and Grandmas piano! Here she is fresh off the truck from Salt Lake. Nancy and Randy happened to be up there this past weekend and were so nice to bring up their trailer and load this beast up (along with a few other things) and haul the lovely lady back to St George for us. Jeff has been wanting a piano for a while so he was as excited as I was to get it all set up. He even started some online classes with Cassie last night to teach her the keys. I am thinking I may even take some lessons sometime. Soon our house will be filled with lovely music. Or at least the kids banging on the keys!
After two weeks with Abby we are getting used to our new family of SIX! Abby has her two week appointment next week so we will see how she is growing. She has been eating good but always seems like she is a little hungry still.
She went on her first shopping trip with the girls today and slept through the whole thing. Ryan is still loving his baby sister although I wish he wouldnt feel the need to kiss her at 6:30 in the morning when she has finally fallen back to sleep.
Here are a few pictures of how she has grown in the last two weeks. Abby @ 2 weeks
Here she is! Abigail Ann Osness born October 2nd at 8:01 Am. She weighed 7 lb 2 oz and was 19 1/2 incesh long. Labor was quick but extremly painful so after about two hours of contractions at home we rush over to the hospital about 5 AM to get some relief in the form of an epidural. Abby and I were also interviewed by the local news about the hospitals new visitor policy. That should air tomorrow night so we will keep you all posted.
34 hours in the hospital was enough for both of us. Abby was tired of being woken up all the time for silly things and I was tired of them asking me when she ate last and how long she did it for. We were also excited to see everyone else.
The kids were so excited to meet Abby and are very good about holding her and making sure their hands are clean before they touch her. Our first night at home went well, she slept for about two hours at a time and would go right back to sleep after eating. So far so good. Now we are just snuggling and enjoying conference. Grandma Hilton arrives tonight and we cant wait to see her!
