Welcome Baby Claire

We have a new niece!

Claire Emily was born on Monday afternoon and she is so precious!

Ashley and Tyler stayed with us for the last 3 days while Mom and Dad and baby were at the hospital. We had SO MUCH FUN! We got to do bathtime and meals and jump on the trampoline and sing them songs at bedtime and listen to them giggle and snuggle with them every chance we could.

And we got to go see Baby Claire (as the kids call her!)

Ashley and Tyler were so happy to meet her...
The Proud Big Sister
The Proud Papa

The Proud Mama (Hello! She just had a baby and she looks totally gorgeous!)

The Proud Aunt
(No pictures of The Proud Uncle. He doesn't like his picture taken. Grrr.)

So, that bad news is that now that Ben and Josephine have produced one more sweet child for us to adore, they left today to move to Omaha. And took all three kids with them.

We have been moping all day. I opened the fridge after they left, saw a sippy cup and burst into tears. We just loved having those little kiddies around. (Hmmm, we may have to get to work on producing one of our own!)

We will miss them so much.

Awww, she's so sweet. You're a wonderful aunt, and you'll be an amazing mom! It's so sweet that you burst into tears when you saw the sippy cup, that just shows how much you love them. I had a wonderful and special aunt growing up that I just adored. In many ways she could reach me and relate to me better than my own parents could. I have a feeling you'll be that kind of aunt!

What a beautiful baby girl! And what a beautiful Aunt she has! :o)

Thank goodness making a baby can be so fun! Did I really just type that?
