Well, as everyone may already know baby Charlie is here! He came almost a month early (36 weeks 1 day), but he was apparently completely ready and grown. He came out 7lb 12oz, 20 inches long, born on April 23rd, 2008 at 5:30pm. His full name is Charles Kenneth Johansen. Kenneth comes from his Uncle Kenny who he now shares a birthday with! He is the cutest thing I have ever seen, and I can't help but smile when I think about him. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from the last few days. For a more detailed run down, you can refer to his Dad's blog. He seems to find a bit more time to update his -- usually while I am breast feeding at night.
Thanks to everyone who has sent comments, messages, emails, phone calls of warm wishes. We appreciate the love and support. Not to mention the many dinners and visitors! We have enjoyed all of the attention and are so excited that our family has begun!
