First photo with mom & dad…

She was thrilled…

And she was so sweet with her…

Thanks to everyone for all the sweet notes and well-wishes. It’s been overwhelming to feel so much love and support. Much more to come soon.

    I tell ya, I’m still kinda suspicious about the Mario/Marie connection. I mean sure, fine…conveniently, it’s her grandmother’s middle name and all. And I don’t see much sign of a dimple yet in that precious chubby little face. Time will tell.

    You all look so wondrously happy, Claire. How you managed to look straight-from-the-salon in that second photo, is beyond me!

    Enormous happy-for-you hugs to all 🙂

    Hi, new Mom, This is Maike, Mikalee’s Mom and you came to our house with the pond in front and the creek running through 100 years ago, it seems. Mikalee kept me up about your life through Facebook and we both read your book. Fabulous. Congratulations to your beautiful new arrival. I love the name “Juliette”, just like the french movie star “Juliette Binoche”. On the pictures you look like you just had a walk in the park after giving birth. Your first girl is very, very cute with her super-blond hair and it’s really amazing how they catch on to a new Baby instead of being jealous.
    I wish you all the best and I know Mikalee will keep me updated about your Baby’s growing through Facebook. Fondly, Maike Greeson
