Chiara Beth Springfield Serrins

Welcome to our daughter, Chiara Beth Springfield Serrins.

Born 12/28/2007 at 9:51 am. She was 8 lb. 10 oz (one oz more than Asher) and 19.75 inches. If you can't tell from these pictures, she is beautiful and perfect! She is doing wonderfully so far at figuring out her main jobs including nursing and snuggling and sleeping.

Chiara is named for Rachel's maternal grandmother Clara Pierce (Chiara is an Italian form of Clara and it means light). Beth is after Rachel's sister Laura Beth.

Mama and Chiara have some naked snuggles.
Look how little she is.

She is a beautiful baby! Congratulations to all of you. Molly and I sang "Happy Birthday" to Chiara on our walk yesterday - even though she couldn't hear us. Molly thought it was a good idea!
