Introducing Charlotte Kenra Tasalautele Tanuvasa


SHE'S HERE!!! Charlotte (Charlie, ChaCha) Kenra (after my mother) Tasalautele (named by Sa's mother) is finally here. She was born at 7:37 am, Monday Jan 19. She was 8lbs 2 oz and 20 1/2 inches...our biggest baby yet! Her labor was great, as everyone knows I'm a fan of the epidural, so it was smooth sailing. At about 7pm Sunday night my mom, dad, sister Mindy, and brother in law Steve showed up, we played games and ate snacks. We stayed up until about 11 ish. Steve went home, the rest of us went to sleep. At about 1 am they started me on Pitocin, at 2 I got the epidural and went back to sleep. At 6 am they checked me, I was dialated to a 5. A little more than an hour later I was a 10, and she was born by 7:37. She is healthy and such a good baby! The kids absolutely adore her. Deacon is adjusting pretty well, for the most part. She sleeps like a dream...from 11-6 the first night home. She's waking up a bit more now, but I just change her diaper, feed her and she's back to sleep about 15 minutes later. I don't know how we've managed to get such good babies, but they all have been so good and so easy!

I don't know if you can see, but the boquet on the left (from Sa's work) has snap dragons...my favorite!!!
