The meeting

So, these babies ... they take more time than I remembered. The days fly by, and I'm lucky if I manage to cross one thing off my list of things that absolutely have to be completed. So, sorry, blog, but snuggling Charlie trumps the old blog every time. He's just more cuddly.  And vocal.

Without further ado, here's a video of Mary Clare and Charlie's first meeting. It couldn't have gone better, and really, is there anything cuter than the way she says Charlie?

The second video is of Mary Clare giving Charlie the teddy bear she picked out for the new baby a few weeks ago. She wrapped it up and everything, and let me tell you, it's kind of cute to see a toddler swaddle a bear in tissue paper, plop it in a gift bag and say, "night night!" (Please pardon the random ending ... trying to video while hooked up to IVs and such is a bit cumbersome.)

Charlie, in turn, gifted her with a doctor kit, which was quite the hit.

Things continue to be just peachy keen over here. Charlie may have his days and nights mixed up, but I think we'll keep him.


  1. Oh my word. That is the sweetest video ever. Rick was watching over my shoulder and told me I need to step it up with the videos...

  2. Those videos are beyond awesome. For real, MC is without a doubt the sweetest toddler to greet her new baby brother - not even a hint of devilish "make that baby go bye-bye now" behavior you so often see. Also, I truly enjoyed the press conference-like atmosphere. MC didn't blink an eye at the constant camera clicks/flashes. I think she's poised to be a politician.
