What a day, what a change in the way I look at life. Little Claire Raelyn is perfect. She was born at 12:02 p.m. today. She weighs 6 pounds 13 ounces and is 18 inches long. She has big dark eyes and black hair, her mother’s long narrow feet and fingers and thick earlobes and her father’s nose. Her skin is porcelain pink and soft and flawless and she pooped three times the first hour of her life. Watching her birth and holding her for the first time changed my life in ways I can’t even ingest yet. I love her in a deep and gentle way.
I’m tired. I need to sleep. But before I go, here are a few photos of my lovely granddaughter. ‘
