Abbey has arrived!

Well, I know I'm very late in getting this on the blog, but here is a picture of Abbey with her Mimi. She decided to come three weeks early on January 7 at 3:12 pm. She weighted 6 lbs. and 3 oz. and was 18 inches. It has been a very busy week and we have had a lot of adjustments to make. The day after Abbey was born, Clark began having chronic nose bleeds and is still having problems with it after two trips to the doctor. He is now being referred to a specialist. It is really frustrating for him since it limits his ability to help with the baby. We also had to go back into the hospital the day after we were released because Abbey had jaundice. We were only in two days and it cleared up fine. The doctor was happy and told us to go home and "enjoy your baby". This is easier said than done when she wants to be feed every 2 hours. I have to take naps twice a day, normally while her Mimi babysits. Clark and I actually made it to WalMart Tuesday night to pick up a few things while Mimi and Papa babysat. It was strange for us but was nice to have a couple of minutes for ourselves. Anyway, this is the only picture I have downloaded yet, but I'll get more up as soon as I can.
