Annabel Violet is our second daughter.

Annabel was born on the rainy Friday afternoon of January 22, 2010. Her pregnancy was very difficult, but despite all the complications she was born at a healthy six pounds, half an ounce, and was 19 inches long. We were able to bring her home from the hospital only two days after she was born, an amazing experience for us.

Annabel loves her friends, telling stories, Taylor Swift, playing softball, writing songs, and her little brother. She is very spunky – she looks like her dad but has her mom’s stubborn spirit. We are going to be in a lot of trouble as she gets older…and so is she.
