PS: Pip and Jess update...

I am pleased to announce that as of 7:28 pm this evening (July 18th, 2007) our first child was brought into the world, Charlotte Jean Parris... formerly known as Pip. It's not according to how we would have liked, but I am so happy to report that both of the ladies are doing fine and healthy! Charlie (what we'll call her) was 2 lbs 8 oz and 14.5 inches long, and she's beautiful (just like her mom!).

We're grateful for all the doctors at CHOC and St. Joe's, they did a wonderful job with the two most important things in my life! Thank you for all the prayers, we just ask that you continue to pray for Jess and Charlotte for a speedy recovery and continued growth and health. Charlie is doing wonderful and is a little fighter already... again, just like her mom, and we love it! Jess is recovering wonderfully and will be able to go and see our little miracle tomorrow.

Here are a few pictures I was able to get off the camera, I don't have all my gear here since Jess was transferred to about 4 rooms today, but that is a story for another post... all that matters though is our beautiful daughter is here and healthy and Jess is doing wonderful and on a quick road to recovery!

So Jess, if you're reading this (and it would be a miracle with no wireless and no other way to check) I love you so very much, and I'm so proud of you! You are going to make the best mom, not to mention how incredibly beautiful you are... I truly am the luckiest man in the world to be your husband!

Charlotte... I've only known you for about 5 and half hours and I love you so much too! You're a little fighter, a lot stubborn, and a whole mess of trouble already, but mom and I love you so much and we can't wait to see you again. Your mom and I are incredibly blessed to be your parents, we love you with all our hearts!

Family and friends, here are a few quick pictures of our baby girl, Charlotte Jean...

Aloha and God bless!!

Beautiful little hands...


The little monitor on her foot...


Our big girl all stretched out (and she twitches in her sleep like her dad :D )


One of my favorites, that's Charlotte holding on to my index finger... daddy's little girl... so beautiful!

Congratulations Guys, we heard the great news. We will continue to pray for both the ladies. She looks wonderful, most definitely like a fighter, we're so glad you posted pictures. She is already so lucky to have so many people who care about her....especially parents as loving as you.

Congradulations to you and Jess. I am so happy things are going well. I have been thinking about you 3 and praying for your health and happiness.

I love the name you have selected for your daughter. Give Charlie a warm welcome from me and my family!

Charlotte is so precious! I'm sure you can't wait to hold her! We are just praying for you guys as you navigate hospital stays, recover from the surgery (Jess) and for Charlotte's health & growth in the weeks to come. I remember how hard it was to see Marshall hooked up to machines just even for a few short days so I'm praying that God will give you both strength and that you'll be able to take her home soon! Love you guys. Try to rest and please call if you need ANYTHING!
