Our little Charlotte.  This picture was taken just shortly after the birth.  She already had a bath (Clayton helped) and she was taking a well deserved snooze.

The two stars.  Jennifer did very well in the delivery of this relatively large baby.  Although very exhausted, she couldn't keep her hands off the baby.

The lovely family!  Just minutes after the birth of the baby.

The baby salutes the world around her while nestled in Grandma Perlow's arms.  Grandma Stevens could not be there for the occasion, but she will have some mighty sweet snuggles waiting for her when she does come to visit.

The baby is wide awake and alert in Grandpas arms.  She's probably already heard of some of his antics, and may be just a little worried.

Leslie filmed most of the activity during and after the birth.  An edited version of the birth video may be available to view or download very soon.  Arno gets to cuddle the baby.

Alison offering the new Mom a congratulatory kiss.  Considering the fact that the St. Louis contingency started their day at 3:30 AM, the kids all did very well.

Clayton is taking over the bathing responsibilities.  This little boy was very, very gentle with his little sister and very sweet and concerned about his mom.

After the hospital...

Clayton and his little sister.  The baby seems to have a tranquilizing effect on everyone that comes in contact with her.  This was just a day or two after her arrival home.

Our little Charlotte is already 3 days old and looking even cuter.  This is pretty much her normal posture.  She seems very content and snoozes through most of the day and some of the night.

Little Charlotte is about to test her new car seat for her first outing since her arrival at home.  She doesn't seem too concerned, but her eyes are partially open just in case.

Almost 3 weeks old now
