Pictures from the birth of Baby Charles

I haven't had a chance to write down Charlie's birth story yet, but you can go HERE to see my doula & birth photographers version.  I'm so so so happy that we had Robin there to capture this amazing event, the pictures are beautiful!

Bates Nut Farm

We love our annual trip to Bates Nut Farm! (see our past visits here, here, here and our very first time, here It was kinda crazy the amount of things we had to bring now that we're a family of 5, but we did it and got there shortly after it opened.
It was a perfect day, not too hot or overly crowded.

This year Izzy actually rode the ponies with big sister Jess!

Hayride is always fun...

Then we picked out pumpkins- Jess was really into the white ones this year

Love this family picture,

Goofing around in our boots!

Next year we will remember our wagon, pack a lunch, and try to get there before it opens! It was so fun though, and our first fun family outing!

Charlie is One Month Old!

At one month, Charlie:
Is 22 inches long and about 10 pounds
Sleeps all the time, but doesn't do long strethes. 4 hours one time, but usually 2 - 3 hours max
Loves his binkie
Has super duper blond hair
Blue eyes
And a cute smile he is just starting to show us
Took a bottle for the first time yesterday and mommy got to go to the gym!
Wants to be held all the time- we all love the ergo carrier
Big sisters are basically his other mommies, they love helping out!
Has been in cloth diapers during the day since week 3
isn't much of a napper
and not an impressive pooper
but pretty easy going as long as he's being held
So, so loved by his mommy, daddy & big sisters!

Izzy wanted the bear in the picture, too- love Charlie's expression!

Love his Halloween get-up! 

And of course his sisters had to be in the picture, too!
