Charlotte’s First Week

On Friday, February  6, 2015 after a 50+ hour induction, we welcomed Charlotte Quinn into the world at 7:38 am via c-section. She weighed 6 pounds, 1.8 ounces, 21 1/2 inches long and had a head full of dark hair!

Charlotte loves being held, being awake in the middle of the night, sucking her thumb (yes, already!), spending time with Grandma and Grandpa, riding in her car seat, eating, the Boppy lounger, escaping her swaddle (unless Daddy swaddles her because he’s the best – the pediatrician even said he’s better than she is!) and receiving so many fun packages and  presents from friends near and far.  She hasn’t decided if she likes bath time yet – surprisingly the part she seemed to like most when when we washed her hair. She probably gets that from Mommy who would happily go get a haircut just for the hair washing part!

Charlotte had a great check up with the pediatrician. She’s weighing in at 6 lbs, 1 oz, just half an ounce under her birth weight. The doctor is happy with the progress she is making with eating and the slight jaundice she had in the hospital is going away!

Mommy and Daddy are doing well. Mommy is recovering well from the c-section and has to be careful not to overdo it. She’s eager to get outside for longer walks and do more in general. Daddy is incredible as he’s doing an amazing job going above and beyond in Daddy duties, all while jumping back into school, work, grading, etc. He’s taking very good care of us.

Grandma and Grandpa are also taking very good care of us and enjoy snuggling Charlotte, singing to her and loving on her.

Here are a few photo highlights from her first week:
