Our Sweet Girl Has Arrived!!!

I apologize for taking so long to give an update.  I have been quite busy adjusting to my new life!  Charlotte Leigh arrived on Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 8:25 pm.  She was 7 ponds and 12 ounces and measured 19.5 inches long.  I am head over heals in love with her!

It may be wrong to post a picture of her crying, but I love her cry.  It reminds me that she is living and breathing.  Our delivery did not quite happen as planned.  I dilated to 5 cm and then did not progress any further.  So, sweet Charlotte had to be delivered via C-section.  I am loving every second with her even though I am exhausted.  She is so very much worth it!  Thank you all so much for your prayers and support.  The only problem we've really had is jaundice, and that seems to be improving everyday.  I look forward to sharing more about my sweet baby girl very soon!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS! I am so happy for you and even though she is crying she is too precious! Sorry the birth didn't go as planned but i am just ever so excited and ecstatic and happy for you! Can't wait to hear more! ((HUGS))

  2. Congrats- it sounds like you are ENJOYING ALL that she comes with- even the crying... precious!

  3. Hi !

    Im am so very happy to hear the good news !!!
    Charlotte is sharing birthday with the newborn swedish princess ; ) and my younger brother : )

    Its great to hear that she is well and that you are well too.
    Its a pity the delivery didnt go as you had planned and a c -section is harder to get over physically than a vaginal delivery but the main thing is that you both are healthy now .
    Enjoy this wonderful time in your life and you will be surprised how fast a baby grows : )
    Sending you big hugs - Angie

  4. Congrats, congrats, congrats Ann!! She is a precious beauty. Glad you are both healthy and well!
