Clare Olivia was born at home on July 8, her great-grandpa Stasiu's birthday (87 years ago). she weighed 8 pounds 10 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches.
Dearma is leaving momentarily to lend a hand with the household's morning routine. Apparently they are without water again. But there was plenty of water for the birth tub yesterday and Papa will have the problem fixed up soon with an alternate pump he just purchased.
Watch for Dearma's version of the birth story in the next day or so. For now, here are some pictures.
