Charlie arrived well over a month ago and I'm finally getting around to posting a couple of photos of our little dude. (I have learned quickly that being at home with a 2 year old and a newborn keeps a person very, very busy.) I am loving my time at home with Charlie and Nora. (Okay...I admit...when both kiddos are crying at once, dirty dishes are overflowing out of the sink, and I still haven't brushed my teeth for the day it can be a little hectic.) But, I am nothing but deeply thankful for the joy these two bring me on a daily basis.
Blessings abound in the Otte household.
Charlie arrived November 11th at 4:59pm. He was 8lbs 10oz and 21 inches long. He arrived with plenty of gusto. I will spare you the gory details, but let's just say I almost had an unintentional waterbirth and/or almost gave birth in my hospital room's bathroom. He came FAST. After some major health complications from my epidural with Nora I decided to do no drugs this time, so a quick labor was appreciated.
Charlie is perfect. Nora is an outstanding big sister. I am one happy and blessed mama.
