Happy Birthday Charlotte Grace Owen!!

Well Charlotte made her big arrival on Wednesday June 10th at 1:02pm. She weighed 7lbs. exactly and was 19.5" long. She's a happy, healthy baby girl and Randall and I feel blessed to have such a perfect little bundle of joy. There are no words to explain how much we love our little baby, our hearts are over flowing!!!

We came home yesterday and Charlotte had her first car ride. She didn't make a peep...slept the whole way home (which was only about 10 minutes). Charlotte and I are working on breast feeding now. She's doing really good, but she does get fussy when she can't latch on right away. It's a learning process for both of us, but we're getting the hang of it much faster than I thought we might!

Last night was her first night at her home. She only woke up to eat 3 times during the night and then fell right back to sleep. Mommy and Daddy are happy that they finally got some sleep last night and that Charlotte is figuring out her days and nights already!!

Charlotte's MiMi and Daddy-Glenn, Aunt B and Uncle Chad are all here through the weekend. Her little head never hits the bed during the day with all the family passing her around to hold her. She's stolen everyone's hearts (including Max's). Max has become Charlotte's biggest protector. He gets very worried when she cries and never leaves her side. We think he thinks Charlotte is his baby...haha!

Evan helped pick out Charlotte's outfit today. He's been super helpful and will hand Randall wipes when he's changing her. He loves his little sister so much, it's really sweet to watch him with her. He even got her a soft cuddly pink teddy bear.

Well, I better get back to my sweet baby!! I'll post more pictures soon though.
Love to all!
The Owen Family
