What I've been up to

We welcomed Charlie Jonah to our family on February 17 at 9:59 am.  His due date was February 10th, and is already living up to his disobedient namesake by not coming out, even when we asked politely.  So he had to be induced.  He weighed 9 pounds, 1 ounce and was 21 inches long.  Thanks to the wonderful anesthesiologist and the epidural, labor and delivery went smoothly and was complication-free!

Some interesting trends:
All my children and my husband have birthdays that fall on the same day of the week.
It rained every time I was in the hospital to give birth.  Pretty amazing for Southern California babies!
Baby #1 = 8lbs, baby #2 = 9lbs, baby #3 = 10 lbs.  Thankfully, baby #4 was NOT 11 lbs. 

Since Charlie arrived life has been a bit hectic.  As we adjust to life as a family of 4 kiddos, I hope to return to blogging gradually, so don't unsubscribe just yet!  And come this fall, I'll have a brand new kindergartener, whcih means lots of fun theme units to share!
