Ho Ho Ho

We went to the mall today, I needed my Santa pic. Figured it would be best to do it now while Ed is still at home with me. I think Santa was a tad nervous with Charlie only being 17 days old though. I was floored by the cost of the photos they are getting insane. We got the biggest package its saving grace was that it included the photos on a flash drive and a $20 gift card to shutterfly. So all in all it wasn't that bad since I know that the gift card will be used towards my Christmas cards. The kids also got those on-line Shining Star stuffed toys just for seeing the Man in Red, beaths the candy canes that I got when I was little.

My cousin took photos of the kiddies today. Both Christmas ones of all the kids and newborn shots of Charlie. I cannot wait to see them!

Boy have the hospital pics changed since I had the girls. Yes this is the photo I got from the hospital photographer. They are a far cry from these;

I was shocked when the photo cart was wheeled into my room and the girl did the pictures right there on my bed. It was nice though getting a choice of what picture I wanted and having them posted on line later that same day. Thankfully with the free wi-fi in the hospital I am able to share these right away.

He's here!

Welcome to the world Charles Edward!
Born: Thursday, November 11, 2010. 9:18am, 7 lbs 4 oz, 19.75 inches long.
Healthy and totally perfect in every way. Ain't he a cutie?

It was a long c/s, almost twice as long as a normal one due to the scar tissue from my previous births. But it was so worth the wait. I got my son out of it, how I love saying my son.

He is the finishing touch to our family. The girls simply adore him and are totally smitten my him. They argue about who loves him the most and daddy couldn't be any happier with him. Don't let his expression fool you he was just nervous about the whole newborn, day of birth thing

See he really is happy, this was taken a couple of hours later

It was a beautiful day the day he was born, sunny and unseasonably warm. We just don't have 54 degree days here in Buffalo in November. Hopefully it is an omen of good things to come!

Also Happy Birthday Auntie Julie! Yes my little one shares a birthday with my sister. I think I now have the birthday gift of all time to beat.

It is November YAY

Finally the month I have been waiting for has arrived. In 10 days at the latest Charlie will be here woot woot. Wow. 10 days, that seems like nothing at all, but I am sure they will seem like an eternity to me. I so cannot wait to meet him, and cover him with kisses!

I also snagged another gift for him from Swagbucks, a portable swing.
