Introducing Charlotte Vivienne~

We're tickled pink to announce that baby Charlotte was born on Friday January 28, 2011 at 1:38pm.  She is perfectly healthy and is already a happy addition to our family~

She weighs 7lbs 1oz and is 20.5 inches long and has navy blue eyes with a head full of dark hair.

 
Now, at one week old, she's back up to her birth weight.  In fact, she's in the 25-50th percentile for weight and 75th for height (very similar stats to big brother Barrett!)


So far, Barrett just loves being a big brother.  His favorite new word is "baby" which he uses repeatedly in reference to Charlotte herself, her clothes, the moses basket, anything remotely baby-related....


 

He never misses an opportunity to "pat the baby."  We are teaching him to be gentle, which Sassy also appreciates, although he hasn't necessarily translated the importance of gently patting the baby to the importance of gently patting Sassy (or refraining from pulling her tail).  Poor pup.

Of course, we are all hopelessly in love with her and are enjoying our time as a new family of four~
