Introducing Baby C!
posted in: Life        date: 03.12.12

I’m thrilled to announce the arrival of Clara Jane Champion. Our sweet little girl was born last Monday, March 5, at 3:50pm. She weighed 7lbs. 5oz. at birth and is 21 inches long. We are quickly adjusting to life as a family of three and are so happy to have her home. She is a beautiful girl with a head full of dark brown hair. She’s been eating like a champ…no surprise there. Eric and I are completely enamored by her and can’t get over how adorable she is.

We’ve been living off meals I made and froze in advance (so glad I did that!), but I can promise you we’ll be back in the kitchen soon. Until then, I’ve updated my featured recipes with a few of my favorites for spring.

    She’s adorable. I love the name, but have to ask, what was your inspiration? I’ve thought of naming a girl after my grandmother, but worried that Clara was too old fashioned, I’m now reconsidering.

    Congratulations! She is beautiful! Hope you are feeling great too!

  • Courtney

    Jaime, we like old fashioned stuff, so the name was kind of perfect. :) Jane is after Jane Austen, and we decided that before we ever picked Clara.
