As many of you already know on Friday Oct 5, 2007 @ 3:16pm we welcomed our daughter Charlotte Mae into the world via c-section! She is 7lbs 6oz and 19.5 inches long, she has her Daddy's blonde hair and blue eyes! She is so beautiful! Everything went as planned with the c-section. We were able to come home on Monday and have spent the week healing and getting used to having the two most beautiful daughters in the world!!! Mommy is just still a little sore but other then that doing great! Daddy is having a very hard time keeping her in a chair! LOL We feel incredibly blessed that everything in the end turned out just as is should have. We have a daughter who grew in our hearts, and one that grew in my belly. We could not ask for anything more then that!
Ok update time....
Lily is adjusting well... for a toddler! Naaa she is doing very well with all the changes. We are trying to keep everything in her schedule exactly the same and that is helping. She loves her sister and doesn't like it at all when she crys. She loves to hold her on her lap, and wants to hold her bottle so bad but every time we put Charlotte on her lap while we are feeding her she will touch the bottle but she won't hold it. But you can tell she REALLY wants to! Chris and I are trying to each find time throughout the day to give her extra time with us w/out the baby. My mom is also staying with us to help transition. That has been extremely helpful!
Charlotte is doing great for 7 days old! We had to go the doctor today b/c she started with a little cough and runny nose. Her doctor doesn't think that it is too much to worry over. We have to go back to see her again on Monday for her real check-up. She has returned to her birth weight and the doc says she looks great. She is a great baby and only really gets upset when it is time to eat. We are doing ok on the breastfeeding front. I am going to pump and give it to her that way as a supplement.
Before I sign off...
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to someone who I just adore and love with all of my heart....my husband. Chris has been next to me every step of this adventure. His strength has gotten us through some pretty dark days in these past 3 years. It is hard for anyone to understand what we have been tested with and yet here we stand still strong and actually better despite the storms. He is a wonderful husband and Daddy for his girls. I am proud to be his wife. Chris thank you for putting up with my hormones, thank you for my babies, and thank you for loving me for all these years. You are my best friend. Everyday I just fall more in love with you.
