Meeting Baby Claire

(Claire in Jody’s arms, about 6 hours old)

Meet Baby Claire. She’s our new (and first) grand daughter, born just last Saturday morning.

It seems like we’ve been waiting for a long time but it’s only been nine months. Jody and I have been waiting, with bags packed, for the last couple of weeks expecting to get a call at any time from our son in Seattle telling us that Claire’s arrival was imminent.

But even though we were packed and ready, we started to get more and more relaxed as the days went on. So when the call finally came early Saturday morning, we were jolted awake from a dead sleep. We threw ourselves together as quickly as we could and took off for Seattle.

Did you know there aren’t too many (read zero) Starbucks opened along I5 at 3:00 AM! But despite the lack of coffee we managed to make it to Seattle and find the hospital.

I can’t express the joy and wonder I felt finally getting to meet Claire face to face and hold her for the first time.

And I know from her smile that she’s happy to meet us too.

Cheers – DJD
PS: Just for the record, Annie and Chris, great job and we love you too! Thanks for the apportunity to share your new bundle of joy.
