Welcome to the world baby Charlotte



Born: 4/19/2010, 12:45pm PST
Place: UCSF San Francisco
Weight: 6 lbs 13 oz
Hieght: 20 in
Curly brown-ish hair about 1 inch long. This was the cause of Heather's massive amount of heartburn. I can only imagine how long it would have been if she went to week 40, vs week 36 & 4 days.
The horizontal line you see in the middle of the photo is the scar from her pre-natal surgery. It seems to be healing very nicely. The doctors are all impressed and feel that she will be able to leave San Francisco early to return to her sister. This scar is about 3 inches long.
Heather & Charlottes first photo together. Heather had the miserable time of not being able to see the baby in person for about 5 hours after surgery. But she was very determined to get there :)


In other news, Charlotte is moving very very well, and has been able to urinate on her own and to have a BM on her own. It may not sound exciting, but it really is :)
