my granddaughter is born!

Clara Mae was born in the water yesterday morning at 8 on the dot. She was a couple weeks early, but weighed in at 7 lbs. 15 ounces and is 20 1/2 inches tall. She's very sweet and mellow.

She is named for Eddie's mom, Clara and my mom, Anita Mae. Isn't that lovely?

Clara got to come home from the hospital today. She's been very busy doing her baby jobs: nursing, sleeping and being adorable. She's good at all three and even seems to be able to multi-task!

Her big brother Henry made a drawing to hang up on the front stoop.

It's a lovely day in New Orleans!!
