First ride in the car. This was Charlie wrapped up for his ride home from the hospital.

First Doctor's visit. This is Grandma Sue and Nora taking Charlie to his first doctor's appointment. Nora mainly likes this picture because it shows off the Mia Bossi diaper bag. Thank you Ellen Degeneres.

First buddy. This is Charlie hanging with his friend 'Cheeky Charlie' that his aunts brought him the day he was born.
First bath.

Fun at Home

Grandparents to the rescue!!!

Once again, if it weren't for grandparents helping us in our time of need, we would be struggling right now. Sherie came down for Adam's ACL surgery and got there in the nick of time to save the day....week actually since she stayed for 4 days. Sherie came down again this weekend with Richard at the last minute becuase of the long weekend, and little did they know how much we would need their help again.

While Grandma Sue was upstairs helping Nora recover, Grandma Sherie was downstairs with Adam helping him recover. Unfortunately Adam wasn't allowed out of the hospital until the day after Nora was discharged, so he wasn't able to wheel Nora out of the hospital, so Grandma Sherie and Grandma Sue had to help out.

The wild weekend continues!!

It was not enough that Adam stole my thunder during my pregnancy by having his ACL surgery during my 7th month, but to make matters worse, two days after Charlie was born, Adam was wheeled down to the ER directly from the Mother/Baby unit of the hospital where he would eventually have to have his appendix removed. Adam had been complaining of a stomach ache all night and I was not having it! I think my exact words were, "Please Adam, I know you are having gas pains but I just had a BABY!!!" I came downstairs to visit Adam before his appendectomy. (Here, both Koch's were wearing hospital gowns and separated by 3 floors in the same hospital.)

He's here!

Our little bundle of joy has finally arrived.
