WELCOME BABY CLARA- 1-day old!

The minute I arrived back from my trip to Asia, I called Judy to see how she was doing. A soft, high-pitched yet joyous voice on the other end of the line said "We have a baby girl!" "She was born about 3 hours ago". The tears flowed..I was so excited for Dean and Judy on the arrival of their daughter, Clara.
Are you ready to meet her?Just a day old, the first glimpse of this precious little girl laying on her mothers chest, close to the heartbeat she's grown accustomed to lulling her, was a moment to stop time.
Dad's hands, able to now cradle his sweet little girl who he's longed to meet. He studies the intimate details of his child's eyes, cute button nose, and those precious little ears that hear him whisper "Daddy loves you".
What's not to love?
Even Bishop, just hours of meeting his new sister was such a welcoming soul...ready to share loads of kisses.
The contrast of such a tiny hand against her mother's...priceless. Only this once will she be so tiny.
Loving the scrunched up Elvis lips...too cute!

Together at last...
Congratulations yet again to you all! I wish a blessed life for your family and I look forward hearing, and being apart of, all the joyous occassions to come. Thank you for letting me be a part of her first hours...HOME.

Much love...always! Auntie Jen
