It's good news all around the Manies/Schweigel family!
Our sweet little nephew arrived on February 1st at approximately 8:15 pm. Charles "Charlie" Michael Manies had a rough landing - Mama Paige is a trooper. We're so proud of her! Charlie is adorable (I'm not at all biased) with a head of dark hair and chubby cheeks. Uncle Karl and I can't wait to hold (and spoil) the little guy! Pictures to come soon.
As of today we're officially in the 2nd trimester - woo! I'm hopeful this means the nausea is on it's way out the door. Karl is hoping that I'll be able to stay awake past 8:30 in the coming weeks. According to our trusty internet resources at 13 weeks the baby is the size of a medium shrimp. Weighing in at approximately 1 oz and is 3 inches from head to rump.
Our awesome friends (with a ridiculously cute baby of their own), Stacey and Jake gave us our first baby gifts. The hat is too cute for words. Thanks guys!
