Home Sweet Home!!

She liked her first walk so much that we did it again the next morning 

Charlotte's first walk around the block. 

After 16 long days in the NICU Charlotte was finally discharged.  Our strong, tiny girl is home with us and doing great! Her doggies are happy to have us all home too! Big thanks to both sets of grandparents for taking such good care of Cowboy and Lily while Jake and I were at the hospital with sweet Charly (Pronounced like Charlotte/Charly, not like Charlie/Charlie Brown) We were able to stay all 16 nights at the hospital, between guest quarters and special parent rooms in the NICU. The NICU staff was amazing! We are so very thankful for everyone that helped our baby get strong enough to come home with us and for all the support we received from friends and family that helped Jake and I stay strong : ) We love you all!

Tara! I found your blog on Juliann's blog! Charlotte is BEAUTIFUL! I am so glad she got to come home and is doing well. Those first few weeks with a new baby are so exciting and scary at the same time. I am so happy for you.
