Pics of the Baby Girl!

The first week of Abbie Grace's life have been wonderful! We miss Daddy so much but are enjoying family being here to help and spend time with. Abbie Grace is sleeping really well. I am getting more sleep now than I did when I was pregnant so I am very happy! Ian is still adjusting but is at least acknowledging Abbie Grace's existance now. He and his Grandaaddy have been wearing each other out daily.

Abigail Grace Becker

Abigail Grace Becker was born Friday, June 23rd 2006
at 2:10 PM at the National Naval Medical Center
Bethesda, Maryland.
Weight - 9 pounds 14 ounces
Length - 23 inches
Mommy, Daddy, Ian and Abbie Grace are doing great!

Waiting Patiently....NOT

The day of Abbie Grace's arrival was a lot of hurry up and wait! We called the hospital at 4am and they told us to be there at 5:15. When we got there an emergency had come up which pushed us to the 2nd c-section of the day. Well, while that one was occuring 2 more emergencies came up! Thankfully we were not in an emergency situation so we just stayed in the room until they finally came and got us at 1:30. Joe scrubbed in while I got ready and then we met back up in the OR to have Abbie Grace. There were quite a few drs and nurses in the OR who were making bets as to her size. The highest was 11 pounds and the lowest was 9. pediatric corpsman got her weight exactly right though...9lb 14 ozs. She arrived at 2:10 pm but since it's the miliary they said 14:10 and I thought that was her weight! I almost passed out but everyone had a good laugh about it.

Ian and Abbie Grace's Rooms

Here are pictures of Ian and Abbie Grace's room. Ian loves his big boy bed and goes to sleep with lots of trucks every night!

37 Weeks

Woo hoo...only 11 days to go! We are all ready to meet Abbie Grace!

Ian started his new daycare today and did so well. He walked in like he owned the he always does! Immediately the radars went up to find the trucks and cars and once he found them he was as content as he could be! And it only took 4, yes 4, minutes to get there. What a blessing! I am so excited to be able to leave the house a little later to take him and get him a little earlier each day and still have time to spare!

36 Weeks...

Here's the 36 week picture...yes, I am large! Whew! Only 20 days to go though!

Ian's Water Table

Ian received a water table for his birthday from Grandma and Popie and Joe and I just got brave enough to put it together! He has had such a good time with it though. Since we don't have a large back yard (we actually have about an 8X8 space) it is perfect to let him play outside with. Plus it's under the deck that is on the 2nd floor so it is cool for mom:)

We try and take Ian to the park around the corner often...lately he has had a hard time with the swing concept and that he can't run in front of or behind them when others are on them. Last time we went he darted and we all had to grab a child in the swings to keep them from hitting him. It scared him pretty bad so hopefully the lesson was learned.

Abbie Grace only has 20 days until her arrival! We have her pack and play setup in the office/playroom/tv room and Ian has decided that it will be a car garage until she arrives. When we tell him she is coming he says "No no Ab Grace is stuck". He's quite cute.
