Alive and well

I have been busy the last few weeks and haven't had a chance to post. Getting the computer is difficult.  But i just wanted to say that i am now the proud mother to a baby girl.
Charlize Linda born December 4th @1pm. She was 6lbs 11oz and 19.25" long.

We were shocked at how small she was considering how tall we both are.
Our stay in the hospital was nice, we went in Tuesday Morning and were home Friday by 1.  Everyone at St. Josephs Womens hospital was wonderful and very helpful.

My parents were here for her birth as well as my friend Stephanie.  My father went home the following Monday and Tuesday (a week after her birth) Adam's dad came for a visit.  My mom will stay here through the new year and then come back when i go back to work.

We have adjusted well and are slowly getting used to having a 3rd family member. The dogs seem not that interested and more lost, but they're very good towards her and haven't caused any trouble.

This weekend we'll head south for our family Christmas on Marco Island. It will be nice to see my brothers and cousins and aunt and uncle.  Hopefully Ms. Charlie will adapt to the location change and let us have a restful vacation.

If i don't get back to the blog for a while, I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy New year!
