My Abbi is 10!!

My Abbi is 10 on 01.15.2011!! I remember the day when this special little girl came into my life.  Abbi was 11 days late to begin with!  The hubbs and I were in Northern California and I had 3 midwives all ready to go.  I was delivering at a nearby hospital, they threatened induction on the 10th day. I was hiking through the Redwoods and swimming to get this child out, but nothing.  The night before my induction I had a huge turkey dinner with friends and family, and someone was massaging the pressure points on my ankles.  Well, at 8 pm that evening the contractions started. There's an argument for tryptophan or pressure points to induce labor?? I planned on holding off until the morning to go to the hospital, because I knew first time moms could labor for awhile and I didn't want to be sent back home.  By 4 am the contractions were getting worse and I wasn't getting any sleep, so we were off to the hospital.  I forgot everything I was supposed to pack!! When I got to the hospital I was only dilated to 2!! What??!! Oh, and I didn't want an epidural either, I wanted to know what this all felt like and didn't want to delay labor.  So, they were pondering sending me home! Just what I feared!!  They hooked me up to the monitor and 30 minutes later my water broke!!  Whoo Hooo, showtime!!  Abbigayle Grayce was born at 8:49 am weighing 8lbs 10 oz and 22 1/2 in .  John was all set to be the one to deliver her into this world, but the midwives saw meconium and wanted her out ASAP. No time for amateurs.


She is my swimmer.

She is my creative little one.

My beautiful girl.

My girl that wants to be a singer.

My girl that has a heart for God and the compassion for all His people.
I love you Abbi, and Happy 10th Birthday!!
