Introducing...

Claire Elise
January 9, 2012
7 lbs. 15 ounces and 20 3/4 inches

We have been blessed by the arrival of our baby girl.  She is perfect in every way and everyone's favorite already.  She beat the doctor into the world so the delivery room was a bit chaotic, but otherwise she has been calm and happy and the only real concern we have is that her older, doting brothers will smother her with love.

 Minutes after her arrival.

 With her very smitten Daddy.

 The only presentable photo of Mommy and baby from the delivery room.  
Claire's lightning fast arrival sent everything and everyone into a tailspin and decent photo ops were limited.
 
 First bath -- she was not amused.

Claire and her big brothers.  We are a very happy family.

Enjoy your Baby Girl! Tonight my two boys were playing dress up with their sister complete with tutus and tiaras. You are in for such a treat.

There is nothing like falling in love with another little baby- especially if it is a girl :)

Best news of the week! So happy for you all! I love the name Elise; it was on my short list for our girlie.

Hooray hooray hooray! Congratulations!

I'm sure it will be nearly impossible to prevent Caleb & Isaac from smother her ... I think it's the third child's right of passage. :)
