It is with great joy that I make this post!  Charley's baby brother, Chandler Evans Furrh, arrived in this world Feb. 19, 2013 at 7:45 PM. He weighed a healthy 7 lbs 8 oz and was 19 inches long.  Both Mom and baby are home and doing amazing.  Charley is thrilled beyond words.  Daddy Drew is beaming with pride and Mommy Ashley is so content!  

Charley has most definatly changed her mind about turning him into a frog or giving him to the big bad wolf!  She looks at him with such love and affection.  She will tell you that he is "so adorable" and that he is the "most beautiful baby brother ever"!!  She will allow anyone to hold him but you must give him back:)  Charley has taken to attending to "all" of the duties that go along with caring for a new baby.  Ashley has an extra "small hand" involved during (breast) feeding time:)  It's a sight I wish I could share with you all, but I'll leave you use your imagination. Diaper changing is another sight all together!  Explaining why Chandler has a bandaid on his "Tee Tee" is something only Ashley could do where a three year old could understand.  Charley never blinked.  She just accepted Ashley's explanation and went right on with the next task. We suspected that she would be quite the little mommy and we were right!  She is nurturing, caring, gentle and totally confident and secure with her new sibling.  

We are all relieved that Chandler is finally here and completely healthy. Just for good measure, they did a sonogram on Chandler before he left the hospital this morning to check his kidneys and all.  Even though we had no reason to suspect that there would be any problems, it was a relief to get the call this afternoon and be told that he was perfect.  God has answered so many prayers for us.  He is such a loving and faithful Father and we praise Him daily for all He has blessed us with.  Just when we think the blessings can't get any bigger, along comes Chandler.  A perfect miracle!  A one of a kind hand crafted perfect living breathing piece of art made by God's own hand delivered to us in a 7 lb 8 oz package named Chandler!

Love to all!
