She’s Here!

Sweet Clara Mae arrived on Saturday, September 3 in the wee hours of the morning. Her birth was completely different than I expected and nothing like that of our other three children. She came out whole and perfect, if a bit purple at first, with a mess of dark hair. We came home Monday morning and have had lots of time getting to know one another.

This first week is such a mix of harsh realities, most of which I will spare you, and the beauty of a brand new human who has managed to explode into your heart in a way you truly weren’t sure was possible.

I have so many words I want to tell the unsure and frightened me of January. Most are cliche and unoriginal, but I think that’s because there are few words for this feeling. This feeling in my heart that Clara was meant to be all along. That she was a part of our family long before we knew. That we are blessed to do this whole thing one more time with our sweet baby.
