October was such an exciting month! One of my best friends had her first baby, and then Reggie and I became Great…as in Great Uncle Reggie and Great Aunt Stephanie. And we couldn’t be more excited for Tricia and Joe, and we know they are going to be amazing parents for Claire Analise. Isn’t her name beautiful? I just love it! Claire is such a little bundle of cuteness! We drove up to the Chicagoland area to visit our new family member when she was just 4 days new… and of course I had to take some photos! Claire was awake and alert the entire time, and was very interested in the magic black box that click, click, clicked every time she batted her beautiful eyelashes and wiggled her perfectly pink toes. Tricia and Joe, we are sooooo happy for you! It was so wonderful to see you beam with pride as you held Claire and introduced her to us. We can’t wait to see you all again soon!
Claire Analise arrived on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 12:15AM.
8 pounds, 13 ounces
20 and 1/2 inches
And a full head of beautiful dark hair, just like her Mommy when she was born!
Claire’s room is bright and cheery and full of sweet little details!
Hello, Claire! You are so beautiful!
I love everything about this image: her little fingers, her little cheeks and nose and lips. Ahhh, so sweet!
Joe, these next two are just for you. 🙂
At 4 days new, she was already reaching for the stars. 😉
Love this one!
Tricia, Joe, and Claire Analise, I’m so blessed to be a part of your family! Reggie and I are so happy, so excited, and so proud of you! And we cannot wait to watch Claire grow up, surrounded by two wonderful parents – and Molly the sweet dog (Lucy says hi!), who will no doubt love and protect her each and every day! Thank you for allowing me to capture such a sweet time in your lives, I will always cherish it! Congratulations!!!
See you soon! xoxo
