Meet my (our) new favorite person in the whole wide world! My sweet and incredible niece, Charli Ann Burger! She was born last night and weighed in at 7 lbs, 3 oz and is 21 inches long! It was a very long day and night…and things were a little intense for a while…but all is fine now and we are sooo thankful and happy! It’s almost hard to put the experience into words, really! I watched it all and I can tell you that there is nothing in the world like it!! It’s truly amazing and such a miracle of God! Charli and Jenny are both doing great and enjoying some much needed rest!! THANK YOU all for your kind thoughts and wishes!! We are sooooo in love with this tiny little angel……
