Charleigh is doing amazing.  She's gained weight nicely and yesterday weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces.  She is still smaller than eithe of my other two were at birth, but I feel like she's getting bigger by the day.  She is a really great baby, especially compared to Jackson as an infant. :) She had a really really terrible night on Monday and didn't let us sleep at all really, but last night she made up for it by already skipping a feed--6 hours is like heaven! :)  I don't expect it, but happily take them when they will come!  She is starting to be awake more during the day now, which is the we will never have another Monday night again...  It's crazy having one so little again...I barely remember what to do, what their next steps are in their journey of their first I know they change SO much SO fast. 

We've talked to the birth family almost everyday since her birth and it is going very well.  I think her birthmother is healing well physically and emotionally for now, which makes it even that much better.  I can't wait to see them all again on Sunday for Creighton and Charleigh's dedication!

Creighton is wearing the flowergirl dress from our wedding (replica of my wedding dress) and Charleigh is actually wearing the dress I was dedicated in 29 years ago! I am so excited and both of these sweet girls and their sweet dresses mean so much to us!  God is good.  He has been so faithful and blessed our socks off!

Crisis Pregnancy Outreach has been INCREDIBLE to us.  They've checked on us on a regular basis and gotten us anything we needed and have just been great! I cannot tell you how much I would recommend this agency.  Their hearts are in the right place AND they are wonderful to the adoptive families as well.
