Everyone at Parchment Place is once again celebrating… the long anticipated arrival of Bumpkin, who has officially been renamed Abigail - or just Abby for short.
I have no doubt in my mind that Abby’s journey into the world was much like everyone’s on this earth. She just followed the light, and here she is, weighing in at 9 pounds and 13 ounces on the 2 March 2012 at 4.44am.
There were times when I felt like this was never going to happen, even though it was inevitable. Especially recently, when I would wake up every morning and wonder why on earth I wasn’t in labour yet. Finishing up work was a good idea, but it also gave me an extra 40 hours a week to think about Bumpkin/Abby and when she was going to arrive into this world or not.
So… here’s to sleepless nights, permanent exhaustion, and being an on-demand feeding machine. But despite all that, here’s to the satisfaction of finally being a mother to a real little human being, and not just to our great big fluffy cat. It’s going to be an awesome journey for us as a family and introducing Abby to the real world outside of the womb.
Thank you to all of you with your supportive words and advice while I have been impatient about the impending arrival. There will be times from now that Parchment Place may get a little neglected – you’ll just have to bear with me though for the time being.
Xoxo LkH and Baby Abby
