Both Charlie and Jen are doing remarkably well. Jen is up and walking well. She got to take a shower this morning and put on her own clothes so that helped a whole bunch. She has opted to stay at the hospital until tomorrow. Considering that when she goes home she will have to walk up a flight of stairs, I think it's the right thing to do. They all 3 got sufficient sleep last night.
Charlie is in her own clothes as well and looking even more adorable if that's even possible. Despite the barrage of visitors (3 sets of grandparents as well as my kidlets and Jen's aunt (only 5 yrs older than Jen so they are more like siblings)and Jen's other brother ~ Charlie is taking it all in stride. Loves being held by everyone. She is alert and looks all around and when she looks directly at you she just melts your heart.
I have let others hold her ~ which takes everything I have to hand her over... but I do share. Julianne is just going crazy over her and holds her whenever she can. Grampy sits patiently but loves when it's his turn. He just loves babies.
And finally ~ Here is the first ever picture of the happy family. I did take a better one with J&J's camera but for now, this is what I have!
It'll be so hard going back home tomorrow once Jen is home and settled. Fortunately it's only a 2 1/2 hr drive and I have a feeling I'll be making it quite a bit!!
