Who's The Baby?

Well all, we're all home and well and snuggled into bed. Praise God!

I couldn't have asked for a better labor and delivery. God was so gracious and I can honestly say this was one the best, if not the best, birth I have ever had! Not bad for a 39 year old lady, huh?

I'll get the birth story together for your reading pleasure in the next few days. It. Is A. Doozie. Almost downright humorous! It will also explain the title of Monk's previous post!

Anyway, I'll give y'all the vital statistics and then get back to my baby snuggling.


Charlotte Anne Monk
Born at 11:25 pm (only an hour after we arrived!)
7 lbs 3 oz
20 inches long

We had a birth photographer and didn't take many pictures of our own (I know...for shame.), but I'll have Monk download what we have, plus I'll take a few today and then post them a little later.

Thank you all for you prayers (they were surely felt!!) and for your sweet comments. You are some awesome people!

I love her name! Now she can be "Charlie!" Love it, love it, love it! Hope you have a great recovery and that little Charlotte Anne is the happiest and best-sleeping baby you have ever had so you can snuggle yourself silly.

"Almost" humorous. No friend, it was definitely downright humorous. I'm still laughing about it, actually. You are a superwoman, no joke. I love you!
