Charlotte Florence


Charlotte Florence made her arrival! The delivery couldn't have been smoother. My contractions didn't start until after I'd already woken up for the day, we made it to the hospital just in the nick of time for my epidural, and I only had to push through two contractions.

Emily and Elliot love their sister. Emily just perpetually wants to be holding her, which was adorable until Elliot came down with the flu, and we've had to quarantine the kids away from her (so sad). But they are very, very sweet to her, and I'm so proud of how well they are adjusting.

Charlotte seems to be a very good-natured girl with good self-calming skills. From all her frolicking about inside me, I thought she was going to be, um, assertive, but she seems very gentle and curious. We love her already.
