Meet Charlotte

Charlotte AKA Leapster was born on 2/29/12 at 8:23 AM.  She was 2 pounds, 8 ounces and 14.17 inches long.  She’s doing really well, but she’s got a lot of growing to do before she will be released from the NICU.  She has already had at least one temper tantrum, though, so we are quite certain she is my daughter.

I got a minute with her in the OR before she was taken to NICU.

I am most likely going to be released from the hospital on Sunday and I am planning to sit down and fill you all in on the whirlwind that was this week.  Thank you for all of the messages and well wishes! We are madly in love with our daughter and hoping we can bring her home sooner (6ish weeks) than later (10ish weeks).
