A reason to go home: little girls

This week, my baby sister Molly gave birth to her second daughter, Claire Elizabeth. Born April 6th at 12:43PM. With no medications! Molly did it all herself. I was quite proud. Claire is named after my Grandma Hazel Claire who died on April 6th last year (and I'm sure had a hand in this). Hopefully Claire has grandma's fireball spirit and generous heart.

Here she is shortly after entering the world:
And Molly's first daughter, Lily, being introduced to her new little sister. I hear that Lily is in love with Claire, and I'm not surprised. She seemed like she would be that kind of kid.

So, I'm stealing some of my sister's pictures, but I wanted to share the good news.

Family is so important to me, and this is one of the factors in my thoughts which are drifting more and more towards home. I would like to be there when my little nieces are growing up, and to hang out with my sisters, and my mom, and everyone else. Life is short.

I want to be the Little Olden Girl that you come home to in the "everyone else" category! Can't wait:)
