Clara Rose Fletemeyer

Little Clara was born on September 21st, 2013 at 7:31pm. She weighed 9lbs 15oz and was 21 inches long. She came into the world pretty fast after a long day of laboring at home. We arrived at the hospital at 7 and she was out just 30 minutes later!

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. It was so exciting to meet her and snuggle her and love her. It was also a thrill to have Finn meet her for the first time. He had a huge smile on his face and gave her a hug right away. He also asked " mommy, why is she so cute?" He has been a wonderful big brother so far and has been sweet and loving with her.

The adjustment from 1 to 2 children has been a bit rough so far, on us and on Finn. It is hard to balance, especially with the typical newborn activities, eating/sleeping/diapering but we are taking it day by day.

We have been lucky to have so much help in the last month with Nini, Nicko mama, Aunt Sus, and Aunt Kiki. We have certainly felt loved and Finn has had a lot of wonderful playmates!

Finn also turned 3!!! I cannot believe 3 years has gone by since we welcomed our sweet little boy into the world. It is really making me appreciate the fleeting baby stage of Clara's life. Finn is the most wonderful little 3 year old. He says hilarious things, is a sweet little person, and is more than I could have ever hoped for. I love him more every day and the last 3 years have been the best of our lives.

I am sure I will blink and the next post will be about Clara's 3rd birthday. We love her so much already and are blessed to have 2 beautiful little children. We love you all.
