Abigail Lily Maddox!!! We absolutely love her name. Abigail means “my father’s joy.” In all of our searching the one stipulation was that the name needed to mean something good. I think we met that requirement! We are thrilled to know that she is healthy and developing exactly on track!
To celebrate the news we decided to throw a “Gender Reveal” party with our friends. This weekend was spent getting things ready for the fun celebration!
After a lot of research, we decided to make cupcakes and put a pink jelly bean in the center. I’d love to say that it was my original idea, but I stole it from someone else. Oh well…it was still cute.
Here are some pics from the party:
We also made take home goodie bags with her name attached….a fun way to announce the name we have chosen for her!
I would say the party was a lot of fun! I know we definitely enjoyed ourselves!
Onto other baby news…according to our book, Abby is now 1 pound and about 8 inches long. It says her senses are developing and that she is possibly practicing her grip…I’m not really sure what she would be holding onto. Silly girl. She can also perceive light and that she can hear the sound of our voices! I think that is the most thrilling. It’s the sweetest thing to hear Andrew talk to her. I can say she already has him wrapped around her finger. She is definitely a mover…I can feel her wiggling around all the time now. Which is quite an amazing feeling. I know I will miss it once she is here.
Here are a couple of updated “baby bump” pics.
A couple of weeks ago Andrew and I took some “professional” shots of my belly. He has all the lighting equipment set up at the church so we took advantage of that and his good camera. Here are some of our favorites. I must say, I have one talented husband. I can’t wait until he can take pictures of Abby.
