On monday March 28th at 9:14 in the evening, we welcomed our daughter Charlie Belle into the world. After a very long, difficult pregnancy, the moment finally arrived when she made her little dark-haired appearance. Dave helped place her on my chest and exclaimed, tears streaming down his tired face, “it’s another girl!” We are in love.
Life has become infinitely more hectic around our house, but Charlie completes our family in the most natural way. Before she was born I was worried about having enough time, attention, and love for two kids. I won’t lie—the time and attention are a balancing act that I’m not quite sure how to perform yet. But the love came so easily that I feel like Charlie has been with us all along.
We’re now knee-deep in diapers and 2 am feedings, so please excuse my absence from the blog for a little while. As soon as we get adjusted to life as a family of four I’ll be back in the swing of things, only with one more tiny gal in the kitchen.
