She's here!

Charlotte Marie entered the world at 2:18 PM on Saturday, November 29, 2008!  She weighed 6 lbs. 3 oz. and was 18 inches long.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

I've put a bunch of pictures below.  The first one has a funny story:  Caroline came back to the labor and delivery room before Charlotte was born to see me and the sight of me in that bed was a little too much for one three year old.  The picture Jeff took shows exactly how close she was willing to get to me!  Caroline was excited to see Charlotte after she was born though and told all of the nurses that SHE named her Charlotte.  Caroline also made it a point to tell all of us to be sweet to her baby sister and "don't wake up my sister."  I think she is going to be a great big sister and a big help to Jeff and me.  

We are all doing well.  We came home today and we are getting settled at home with our two girls.  Thanks so much to everyone for the calls and prayers and visits and gifts; we are truly blessed with wonderful family and friends.  We look forward to having everyone get to meet our newest blessing.  

"I love my mom!"
