a lil clara update

taken when she was 3 days old

Our little Clara is such an angel. I am constantly in awe of the fact that we made her and she is ours.

It breaks my heart when she cries.  And makes my heart swell when she rests her eyes on mine.

She is the light of my life. 

Seeing Tommy as a father makes me all emotional as he is just wonderful in this new role.  I must have taken 100 photos this week of her sound asleep in his arms. 

My whole world...those two.


Being a mother has been hard work in the first few days...as I have no idea what I am doing...and nobody there to show me the way.  The baby books are good...but they are just books.  It feels overwhelming sometimes - only because I want to do everything "right."  You understand.  We will figure it out...together... me and Tommy and Clara.

  3. really beautiful shots! she is one gorgeous baby... and I don't say that about all babies.

    SIDE NOTE: So I just searched for your netti pot post. I've had a cold or maybe the flu this weekend. Fevers , stuffiness, cough - the whole nine yards. Miserable. Doc told me to take tylenol every four hours and keep the fever down and he'll see me on Monday. I think it's funny because I discovered when you were 24 you got sick - and I'm 24 weeks and sick. Thank God though - seem to be taking a turn for the better this evening.
