Welcome Baby "Charley"

This little beauty is the latest to join our little family. I was not feeling well so they were going to do an amniocentesis to find out if the lungs were developed enough to induce. This is one of God's miracles and great blessings. Because we were watching my health we found that my amniotic fluid had dropped from a 10 on Monday to a dangerous 3.5 on Friday the 16th. So we got to induce at 37 weeks and get Charlene Hazel. We are all doing well and my recovery is a TON easier and I haven't felt lightheaded or dizzy since about an hour after delivery. Another miracle!













The older kids are doing great with her and ALWAYS want to hold their little sister.
