Introducing...

... Charlotte Kay, born a week ago on July 27th.

Sweet baby sleep

She was 6 days late, but then came as quick as can be after just 2 hours at the birth center. 3 hours after that we were home just in time to wake up the kids and say, "We have a surprise upstairs!" Totally fun.

We are just starting to get over the shock of Charlotte not being a boy, as this is the first girl born into Rob's dad's side of the family in 70 years! So far she is so sweet and mellow, and fits into our family so perfectly. I feel strangely back to normal. I really couldn't ask for a better way to grow into a family of six.

CONGRATS! I love that you surprised the kids! We did our surprise a bit similar..but we brought home their brother from the NICU when they weren't expecting it. It is a memory I will NEVER forget!

liz said...

CONGRATULATIONS! You have a beautiful family... and I'm amazed at how good you feel and that you were able to post at all so soon. It's not like you don't have three other kiddos to care for.

I think you might need to change the name of your blog to something that includes the word SuperWoman along with Spotted and Stone!
