Charlie is one week old today!
There are so many things I want to say to commemorate this occasion, but I find myself short on time. We have to get my mom to the airport by 5:30 AM, and it's already almost midnight.
This week has been absolutely insane. From ending up with a C-section to middle of the night feedings to baby spit up and baby poop to the sweet smell of our perfect little boy, this is one week I will never forget. Charlie is absolutely amazing. I hold him and am overwhelmed by his perfection. It is the strangest thing. He is just fascinating.
This has been a week full of firsts for all of us. Things have already changed so much, but honestly, I would not have it any different. We are completely in love with Charlie. He already has a million nicknames, and he's already so familiar to us. It's definitely been a challenge, but I also know that he will never be this small again. As a matter of fact, as I was loading all the pictures from the past week onto my computer, I got a little teary. Already!
Here are a few pictures from Charlie's first week.

And here is how I look at one week postpartum:
Here's to many more weeks (and years) full of Charlie goodness! What a ride this has been.
(Birth story is coming, I promise. And also, thank you so much for all your comments and support.)
