Charles Hill Hawkins IV
Born Tuesday, January 12, 2010
9 lbs. 1 oz. and 20 1/2 inches long
We are extremely blessed and fortunate that your prayers and our prayers were lifted and our sweet baby Hill's cleft only affected his lip and did not extend into his nose or palate. He is able to eat, suck, coo, smile (poot), and give the best kisses ever! We don't even notice it...he's just a precious angel!
Here are a few pictures and I promise to backtrack and give you the whole scoop of the birthing process, the feedings, his dad having to wear latex gloves to change poopy diapers, how wonderful his dad is with him and many many other topics. In the mean time I hope these pictures will tide you over!

We are so in love and can't wait to share this experience with all of you! There will ALWAYS be something to blog about because afterall...we are the Hawkins and live in continual hilarity!
Chip, Hill and I truly appreciate your prayers, calls, texts, emails, casseroles, and the list goes on and on. Never a day that we aren't so thankful for all of you.
