My friend April and I had gone back and forth about baby names a few times while she was pregnant. You see, I have kind of a slight obsession with them. I think I have picked out at least ten girl names I like though my husband I will probably only have 1 or 2 kids…. someday. But when April texted me the day after Charlotte was born and told me they settled – at the last minute – on the name Charlotte Reese for their new baby girl, I knew instantly it was perfect. It’s sweet. Not too trendy. And, it sounds great when yelled together… you know, for 15 years from now when her baby girl does things meriting a first-and-middle-name-shout. If you’ve ever been a kid – or had a kid – you know what I’m talking about. 😉
So, last Monday my good friend Tina and I hopped in the car and headed on over to to fiiiiinally meet April’s little Charlotte. And, she couldn’t have been any cuter. And her momma couldn’t have been more smitten.
This first picture might be my favorite. It’s Charlotte’s “no more pictures!” face. Get used to it, girl.
Tina also grabbed a couple of me while I held her (see below on left), and I have to say… so weird seeing pictures of me holding a baby. So weird.

And April (below), being the sweet mommy that she is. Tina and I can’t get over how incredible she looks just three weeks after giving birth. Seriously, I hope I look that good three months afterward!
After just an afternoon with Charlotte I left convinced that it’s possible there is just nothing in the world like a little baby cuddling. Thanks, April, for sharing your little nugget with us.
P.S. Since we visited last Monday, which marked three weeks for little Charlotte Reese, that means today has been officially a month. Happy one month of life, little girl!
