Here she is...



Brad posted the story from his point of view so I thought I'd give you mine. Here she is...

Abigail Kay Harding


Abbi was born on Thursday, June 19th, 2008 (2 days past her due date) at 4:12 in the afternoon. She was 7 lbs 2 oz and 21 inches tall. I went into labor at about 5:30 Thursday morning and was admitted to the hospital at about 7. My plan was to wait out getting the epidural until the last minute, but after about 2 hours of back labor I was begging for the drugs. After 2 failed attempts to place the epidural I was finally numb by 9.
It was only 10 hours from start to finish and overall an amazing experience and I loved it. Abbi is such a good natured little girl. She loves her daddy. Right after birth she would look around for him when she heard his voice. It's amazing how much you can love someone that you just barely laid eyes on. The love I have for her has only made me love Brad even more. He is amazing and our little girl is gorgeous!

Yippy! Clayton and I just finished reading the last two posts and we couldn't stop laughing at Brad's side of the story. Clayton couldn't have said it better himself. We are so happy for the two of you and we can't wait to see sweet little Abbi!

I would have to agree with you Missy, having a baby(s) has deepened my love for Clayton to a level I never knew existed!

We love you guys and hope all continues well for you...can't wait to see you decorate the purple room for your baby girl!!

Hey Missy,
Reading your blog brought back so many memories of when we had Connor. I am so happy that everything went well for you. I am sorry I haven't written sooner. I have been pretty sick the past while. But that is no excuse. Abbi is so precious. Let me know if you need anything, and thanks for the card! When John and Lorie come I was going to see if they could bring home just a few of my maternity clothes...didn't know I was pregnany when I lent them to you lol. And I am getting bigger so much faster this time. Kind of depressing. Well I let you get back to Abbi and Brad. Love you tons and can't wait to see you all!
Love,Celeste
