Charles Lester Melberg

Charles Lester Melberg FINALLY made his appearance to the world this past Tuesday sometime between 6 and 7 pm.

When he FINALLY arrived he weighted 9 pounds 2 ounces.
When he FINALLY came out, he was 22 inches long.
Welcome to the WORLD. We are all so glad to see you. Welcome to the WORLD, we are all so glad you are here.

Dad jetted to the hospital as soon as he got the call on Tuesday evening, after returning from our annual State Fair adventure. Dad ALMOST cancelled his State Fair trip with Marly and Dean, awaiting little Charlie's arrival.

The Thomberg's went to visit on Wednesday afternoon. I neglected to take a picture of the proud and happy parents, but I would like to tell you Rachel's hair was in perfect curls as usual, despite having been long over-due, and spending many, many hours being induced, and then laboring the day before.

Charles was our great grandfather's name.

Lester is Rachel's dad.

New little man is NOT so little, but he is a blessing from the tip of his dark hair to the bottom of his tiny toes.

Rachel, Brett and Charles are all doing well.

I am over the moon to be an auntie.

Dad is ecstatic to be a grandpa again.

Marly and Dean are excited about their cousin. Marly rarely has kisses for ANYBODY, but she suddenly has plenty for Charles. She loves to hold the baby.

Mark is funny. He is uncomfortable holding the baby, despite being super-duper, natural from the get-go, hands on daddy to tiny infant Marly and Dean.
