January 12th, 2009 - Today is Charlotte's 'Official' Arrival Date ...

(ABOVE: Charlotte - a.k.a. Mommy's Turtle!)
(ABOVE: Jaden in the snow - yeah, she likes it but after 10 weeks of continuous snow on the ground - me, not so much!)
(ABOVE: Jaden on top of the snow pile at the end of the driveway!)
(ABOVE: How about a smile at 2 weeks old - yeah, I know, just gas but cute nonetheless!)
(ABOVE: I am already in trouble if at 2 weeks old she is rolling her eyes at mom!)
Obviously she has been here for two whole weeks already and for that I am so happy for but a teeny tiny eensy weensy bit of me wishes she was arriving today - that would mean she wouldn't be two weeks old already! But she is two weeks old and she is here and my life will never be the same ... my heart over flows each and every time I look at my two girls and the family that I have with them and Jason. I never in my wildest dreams thought that this would be my life - in fact I would have probably said "no way" if someone said it would be like this ... but the fact that I have an amazing husband who adores me and the two beautiful girls we have together makes my heart get all warm and fuzzy - and when you live in MN and tomorrow's high is supposed to be -3 anything that gets you feeling warm and fuzzy is a plus!!! So how about some photos to celebrate my Baby#2 being 2 weeks old already - and the fact that my Baby#1 will be turning SEVEN years old in just SEVEN weeks! How does the time fly by so fast? Oh and for those of you 'new moms' out there (Kelly and Kristen) Miss Charlotte did NOT make her crib debut this weekend ... I just decided she is 'only' 2 weeks old - why rush it ... so we will 'try' moving her again when she is a month old ... that way we have 2 weeks to work at it before I head back to work ... so other than that BIG news not too much is going on here ... my sister arrives on Wednesday (Jason's 36th Birthday) and my niece Amanda arrives on Thursday. Jaden has NO idea she is coming and is going to freak out - it should be pretty funny to see her face! Friday night Jason and I are heading to Morton's Steakhouse in Minneapolis to have dinner alone to celebrate his birthday. Saturday we will probably head to the Mall of America to go shopping and walk around - which is all you can really do when you live here in January - or February - or even March really! Sunday is laundry day and more visitors are coming up from Albert Lea ... and my sister leaves on the 19th ... today and tomorrow my Mother In Law is visiting again and staying to watch Jaden's final gymnastics show tomorrow night so as it seems lately - we will have a busy week ... so until I get on here again - enjoy the photos! Have a great week!Love ~ The Clark Family of Four ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden and Charlotte!

I think Charlotte was thinking of her grandmother in NY, that is what put the smile on her face, I am sure. You guys have way too much snow,

Love ya - Mom
