My new niece was born last night.

Clara Isabel Hedrick was born February 3, 2010 at 2:22 a.m.

Bravo, Noemi, my incredible sister-in-law!

I’m sure Noemi will have some professional-quality photos
of Clara posted on her blog soon.

For now…Here she is!


Clara Isabel

She is the third child born to my youngest brother, Matthew.

I remember clearly when Matt was born.

I was five, and I was so excited to hold him.



And now, I can’t wait to hold his new little girl.
