Happy Birthday, Claire!!!

Happy birthday, Claire Bethany Seale!
You were born August 20, 2009 at 1:51p.m.
You weighed 6lbs. 11oz. and measured 20 inches long.

(my mom says she looks just like me when I was born)

Your father and I arrived at the hospital at 5:30a.m. We were so excited that today would be the day we would finally meet face to face.

You were the easiest of my deliveries. As soon as you were born the nurse put you on my chest immediately. I was so shocked at all of you hair! Both of your brothers were practically bald. We all laughed about your dark brown hair before you were even completely delivered. I wonder how many parents can say they have a blond, a red, and a brunette?!?!

As soon as I was "put back together," Your Daddy went to the waiting room to get everyone. You boys got to come to the delivery room to meet your sister when she was about 15 minutes old.

Ethan's first look at Claire

Doug had to take Davin all the way outside because he was throwing a full blown tantrum because he wanted to hold you by himself! He still wasn't very happy upon their return.

When it was finally time for Claire to go to the nursery your Uncle James and Aunt Whitney took you boys to watch her bath, etc. through the window.

Postpardum was full so it was almost midnight before I got moved out of labor and delivery into my official room long after everyone else had gone home. It was so quiet and peaceful as I patiently waited with my beautiful baby Claire!
