Announcing the Arrival of CJV


Hurray!

Charlotte Jane

arrived December 2 at 6:55 pm

She weighs a teeny, tiny 4 pounds 9 ounces
and measures just 15 3/4 inches long!

The induction was actually a wonderful experience. 
Everything went just as smoothly as possible.

My awesome doctor was here all day.
The nurse took such good care of us.
Hubby was an amazing labor coach.

CJV is spending time in the NICU to monitor her blood sugar,
ability to regulate body temperature,
and oxygen saturation levels during feedings. 

She's been extremely cooperative through it all. 


I am feeling great ... aside from being very hungry and a little sore.

I am the momma of two beautiful daughters. 
How very blessed I am!

I am relieved in so many ways for you all! Healthy happy girl, safely delivered, labor that wasn't traumatic, healthy Dana, and a great new day for the Verhoff family!!!

When Ollie and I said our prayers last night, I mentioned you, and he said "Natty baby siser?" "Yes Oliver, Natalie has a baby sister now! Would you like a baby sister someday?" "No, Natty baby siser, not Olber!" Sigh. I'll keep working on him...
