a cool spring afternoon

i think my post-pregnancy brain has totally turned to mush.  i seem to be struggling to put together coherent sentences lately, so i will let the pictures do most the talking.

one of the perks of living in florida is the beautiful spring.

lucy is adjusting pretty well to having a crying baby in the house.
charley and lucy are totally going to be bffs.

newborn pictures (just a little late)

i procrastinate.
a lot.

so it's really no surprise that i am just getting around to taking charley's newborn pictures (10 days before her 1 month mark).  we had our friend kelly take her "official" newborn pictures (that are AMAZING!) but i wanted to get a few of my own as well.

checking in...

if her feet are any indication of how tall she will be, maybe charley will be taller than me

just a little bigger than the pillow

i love the semi cross-eyed look

almost a smile...kind of

lucy gets very concerned when charley is crying...

my favorite.

visitors have come from far and wide...syracuse, roanoke, columbus, philadelphia, peru and milton to meet her.

10 days and day 6

she's here!
we welcomed charlotte lee on sunday night!

10 days late and right on time.

my mom arrived last friday, and about an hour after her plane landed i started having contractions.  50+ hours later we got to meet miss charley. 

i know it's cliched, but i really don't know where the days have is it that we have a baby that is 5 days old already?

it's been a whirlwind of a week, so for now a few pictures from the good ol iphone.
