Claire Ellen

How special it was to meet my God child, baby Claire Ellen, for the first time!

Her Daddy Jason, says we are not to call her by her double name, Claire Ellen. At least that’s what Mary Heather told Sarah Ball, who told Sara Britton, who told Allie Boone, who told me.

 

All the way here from Seattle, WA with her big (BIG) brother, Hanley. Who, make no mistake, is only two but looks and talks like a 4 year-old.  Which is no surprise really seeing that his Mom, and my long-time friend Mary Heather, scored something like a 1450 on the SAT. Overachiever.

Motherhood has agreed with Mary Heather who lives, to be exact, in Kirkland, WA just 20 minutes outside of Seattle, with no family other than her hubby and two babies. Kudos to any friend Mama that can live in a town without their Mama.

Every southern baby is properly introduced with a Sip N See it seems.... baby Claire is no exception.

For someone that was quite the handful (or in my case– she bit a cheek-ful of me!) she has some sweet, sweet babies. One her funniest, said with a straight-mouth lines has been her response when Shea told her she has a sweet baby.  Mary Heather, in MH fashion says, “I know, I don’t deserve it.”

 

But I beg to differ. She most certainly does deserve it- MH has always, always been a good friend, daughter, grand daughter, and wife to those around her.

Now if only I can get her to move back to the South where she belongs.
