Introducing Charlotte Rae Schenker
Have things seemed quiet over here? That's probably because my wife and I welcomed our first daughter, Charlotte (or "Charlee"), into the world on Christmas Eve a few weeks ago! She doesn't do a whole lot just yet, but she has her mom's good looks and eats like her dad, so I think we're onto something here.
Caity labored for about 18 hours through a ton of various complications, but delivered her in just 25 minutes, and her recovery is going so much better in the last week or so. She had also asked that when the great grandparents and our parents, all first-time grandparents, meet her for the first time, to have my camera at the ready to capture their reactions, and boy am I glad that I did. Here's a bit of our story from the hospital through today, and I'm sure there will be plenty more to come.
