Abby or Abi?
OK, I need some advice. And I realize this probably should have been decided weeks ago since my daughter is already almost 7 weeks old, but then again, we didn't even have her middle name chosen until she was almost a week old!
So we are debating on the spelling of her nickname - Abby or Abi. Before she was born, Josh was spelling it Abi, but I have always spelled it Abby. My mother in law also spelled it Abi in a text message the other day, and it got me thinking. Since Abi is the beggining of her name - Abigail - and since Abigail is a pretty popular name and 98% of them spell it Abby, maybe we should spell it Abi. What do you think?
In other news, usually Abi (Abby??) wakes up every 3 to 4 hours at night to eat, but falls right back asleep after eating - actually she usually falls asleep during eating! But last night, I fell asleep holding her in the Lazy Boy at about 10:30, and neither of us woke up until about 4am!! I guess we were both exhausted - that's the longest she's ever slept without eating. I had leaked all over (sorry - TMI) but we both woke up so refreshed!
I think we'll go with Abbi - what do you think of that?
