Claire’s first day

Hello, World!

Jesse helping with the newborn exam

Claire wearing the hat Beppe knit for Jesse when he was born.

Later Jesse had to see if it still fit him…

Jesse is constantly reaching out to gently touch the baby, as if to see if this is reality, or just a wonderful dream.

Aunt Elise meets Claire, and Jesse demonstrates his continued excitement about the baby come to live at his house.

    What a beautiful little flower! Congratulations. I just found your blog via your comment on “Like Merchant Ships”. I also just wanted to say that it’s pretty neat to come across someone else who uses the name “Beppe” instead of Grandma. I have a “Beppe”, too, but sadly my mom wants my children to call her Oma or Grandma… not Beppe.Anyway, I just thought that was kinda neat.Hope your enjoying your precious new girl! :o)

    Ha-ha, I love that picture of Jesse with his hands out…he looks like he’s in mid-bounce, he’s so excited. ๐Ÿ˜€Aw, little Claire does look like a flower in that last picture! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congratulations on your long-awaited arrival! I love her name. I love the name Claire, but I wouldn’t be able to name my own (someday) daughter Claire. That would just be cruel…Claire Sinclair?…doesn’t that just remind you of Les Miserables’ Jean ValJean? ๐Ÿ˜‰Anyway…beautiful pictures…beautiful baby!(my word verification was “blerst”…which appropriately enough makes me think of someone trying to type “blest”, but made a typo!)

    Aww she is gorgeous! She does look a lot like Jesse, can we see photos of him at a similar age to compare? ๐Ÿ˜€It’s wonderful to see Jesse so excited about being a big brother!
