Meet Abbey

Her name is Abendroth Carol Sexauer. But you can call her Abbey. She was born on February 7, 2009 at 6:15 AM in Concord, MA. She was 19 inches long and weighed 6 lbs 9 oz. And her mom, Kate delivered her completely naturally, to the wonder and amazement of her father, Matt, and the doctors and support staff.

Here is a list of frequently given responses to some of the most popular questions asked about Abbey so far in her thus short, short lifetime.

1. "AH-ben-droth". It is a german surname on Matt's side that literally translates to "Evening Red", a poetic way to describe a sunset.

2. "Carol" is in loving memory of Kate's aunt Carol.

3. She is the first grandchild on either side of the family.

4. Blue.

5. In mom's arms, in dad's arms, in Nana Jeanne's arms, on the big blue chair, and last night in the bassinet.

6. Cloth diapers, once she's big enough.

7 Technically Trey Anastasio at the Orpheum Theater in Boston back on October 23.

8. Uncle Jeff

9. Aunt E

10. Woofie

We here at the Sexauer house hope that these answers help with your questions. Keep checking in for more Ab-ventures, pictures, bad puns, and general trivia about the smallest, loudest, and hungriest member of our family.


  1. I'm so glad you guys decided to start another blog! I plan to follow it religiously, haha. Can't wait for more updates as she continues to grow and change each day!

    Ooooh-I think I'm the first to post - yay!

  2. I'm going to guess that #7 is the answer to "who is the first person you told?"... but #10? Is that her first toy, perhaps?

    And awesome on #6. I think our generation is going to change the norm for cloth v. disposable diapering.

  3. Jena,

    6 is "what was her first concert?" and 10 is....well, Woofie is our cat. I suppose you could make up a question for that answer.

  4. Daddy,
    I was born on February 7, not February 2, you forgot already!?!?!?!

    Matt, I can actually see you writing a new edition of "Cook's Illustrated" magazine: "Kitchen tested by Abbey, Baby Food".
    Have fun every day with your new treasure, she truly is a beautiful gift.
    Love & Kisses,
