The Stork Has Finally Arrived!!

Hello everyone! This is Sam posting on Charlie's behalf.

After 12 hours of labor, around 7:45pm September 13th, 2005, Charlie gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Cricket Fairlane. She is 9 lbs 2 oz (OUCH) and 21 inches long.

I'll leave the gory details to Charlie if she wants to share them, but for now, here's some pictures I took on my cheap camera :)


Aren't they a cute family? Posted by Picasa


She's got attitude already! OK...maybe it's just gas! Posted by Picasa

Hooray!

Think burrito when swaddling.

She is truly beautiful, and the baby's not too shabby either. ;)

I showed my mom the pics and she says "congratulations Charlie!"

When I read her the name she said, "Aw, how pretty!"

In the timeless words of senor cardgage, COMBOLATIONS! You have a beautiful little girl. Oh yeah, don't be afraid to let the people in the nursery watch your baby girl, the sleep is the best thing you could get. We didn't do that on the first night and did on the second. We regretted not having him in the nursery the first night.

What an adorable little gal! Very happy for both of you. I'm glad Al sent me this way so I could get a smile today. :) Congrats to both of you.

What a beautiful miracle. It is definitely more fun to be on the Granny detail than being a "full-time" mommy. I can't wait for all the spoiling to begin. Hey, that's my job, remember? Cricket rocks. Love, Granny-G
