The Miracle of Life (and Modern Medicine)

So this is just a quick announcement sort of post, because I really need to get to sleep and get some energy back, but for those that don't know, Jenni's water broke on Tuesday night and then little Charlie was born on Wednesday April, 23 (the same day as his Uncle Kenny's birthday, which is where he gets his middle name from). Despite being almost a whole month early, he was 7 lbs 12 oz and is doing VERY well (even to the point of wearing Mommy out by feeding so much). We're SO grateful that he came out as healthy as he did, and we couldn't have hoped for anything better.


I'm sure that at some point Jenni or I will get on here and post all the details, but for now you'll just have to settle for the pictures on the Picasa Web Album or the Facebook Album and my cheesy captions.

And in conclusion, I would just like to add that I think it should be a crime for anyone recommend against having an epidural (which was a semi-indirect focus of the birthing class we went to). The epidural made the experience so much more enjoyable for Jenni and in turn for little Charlie, but I'm most of all just thankful that my beautiful wife, Jenni, and the wonderful little bundle of joy that she created are both doing well.

I am so happy he is here safe and sound! It is actually a talent for people to "show up early", so I am glad he already has that :) Thanks so much for letting us come down yesterday. I know you guys would have rather relaxed and not have had to worry about guests, but it was so fun to see little Charlie. I already miss him :( What a beautiful post to Jenni too. You guys are the BEST!!! I cant tell you how happy Casey and I are for you guys. Honestly. We talked about how great your little family is all the way home last night. Anyway, I am off my soap box now. Cant wait to see him again. Keep the pictures coming.
