Clara Brooklyn Baillio

The anticipation is over! Celeste had her C-section on May 9th, and it went swimmingly. We now have a healthy 6 lb 15 ounce baby girl! We have decided to name her Clara Brooklyn. She is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.


Celeste and I took some photos on the evening of the 8th. It was our last moment together as 2 individuals. We were looking through our camera after taking some pictures of Brooklyn, and they were still there. I showed it to Celeste and said, "Can you believe that was us just 2 days ago. Just the 2 of us. And now we're 3! I wouldn't ever want to go back!" Needless to say, we are thrilled with this gorgeous little baby.

Celeste is recovering just fine. She got up today and walked around the halls a bit. She'll do that a couple more times before the day is through. She is a fast healer. So things are great. Thanks to everyone that sent their prayers and love in our behalf. If Celeste does SUPER well recovering, she might be released tomorrow. Otherwise we'll be home on Saturday.

Drop us a line. We love hearing from all of you!

Have people started saying who she looks like?

So you named her Clara Brooklyn, but are going to call her Brooklyn? Thats cool, I like the go by the middle name thing.
