1 Week Old

It's crazy how fast this week has gone. Abigail has been such a sweet baby and very patient with me and her sister. She sleeps wonderful, and I actually have to set my alarm at night every 4 hours to wake her up to eat. I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful daughter. We are doing great and have greatly enjoyed and appreciated Nana and Grandmas help this past week.

A Like

Like Gracie, Like Abby:
Abigail ended up having jaundice shortly after birth just like her big sister did. Ben and I stayed in the NICU with her over night under the lights to get her count down. Luckily it was only for one night unlike Gracie who had to be under them for 5 days. Her biliruben count is down now and we don't have to worry about it anymore. I guess for future kids we'll just have to assume that we'll end up doing the same thing.

Like Mother, Like Daughter:

Thanks to the sewing skills of my good friend, Gracie has her own sling for her own baby. We could have had a melt down otherwise.

Abigail Kathryn Martino

We are so excited to have another sweet little girl join our family. Abigail arrived Monday at 2:39 pm weighing 6 lbs 14 oz. and was 19 in. long. After my doctors apt. that morning I began having contractions. We arrived at the hospital at noon and I delivered a couple hours later. It was such a nice delivery and almost went to fast, but was a wonderful experience. She is so sweet and we feel so blessed to have such a beautiful healthy girl. Gracie played at her friend Logan's house that afternoon and came to the hospital later to meet her new sister. She was very cute with Abby and gave her lots of kisses.
Life is wonderful with two little girls. More pictures to come...

Let Spring Break begin. We are so excited that Ben will be around this entire week for his spring break. We hope he enjoys his sleep with no alarm , his time with us, and doing things he doesn't usually have time for. We are so proud of him and how well he has done so far. Now take a little break on becoming a doctor, and enjoy your spring break!

Sleep Standing

The other night when I went to check on Grace before I went to bed, this is what a came across... She didn't move an inch even after we took pictures and were laughing. Sleep tight sweet girl!

The Girls Room

Not too much has been going on lately except for preparing for our new little girl to arrive. Gracie's crib was recalled so we had to get another one (for free). It's pretty similar, but I actually think I like it better than the one we had before. We've had lots of fun going through all of Gracie's baby clothes and other baby things. I've especially enjoyed organizing and putting together the girls room. Hopefully it will all work out with them sharing a room.
