Welcome Charles Owen Box

It's 3:30 am, and it's been a long day, but it has been worth it. Brooke and I have been at the hospital since 6:45 yesterday morning. After a long day of progressing through the stages of labor, our doctor determined that Brooke was not going to be able to deliver Charles naturally and she had a c-section. This turned out to be a great decision, as Charles weighed 9 lbs, 11 ounces! Our doctor had originally estimated 8 1/2 lbs. Charles Owen Box was born on August 10, 2011 at 2:22 am. He is 21 inches long, has a significant amount of black hair, and gigantic paws for hands. I am so proud of Brooke; she worked so hard all day and really held out against significant pain. I like to think he's pretty much the most beautiful baby ever, but I'll let you judge for yourselves.
