After nine long months of anxious anticipation... Claudia Christine McLendon arrived on Monday, April 13, 2009 at 11:56 pm, weighing 6 lbs, 13 oz and measuring 19 3/4 inches. Our precious Claudia was born nine days early (to my delight!) at St. Luke's Hospital in Houston, Texas. It was a very, very long day, but when Claudia finally made her appearance, there was not a dry eye. Proud Daddy Russell cut the chord (left handed!) and, because our sweetie had to be taken to the neonatal intensive care unit at Texas Children's Hospital, Daddy also gave her her first feeding and diaper change while I was recovering. What a great Daddy! Your grandparents, Gram & Grandpa and Grandaddy and Mama Kate were all there for the excitement. You were so tiny and precious. I have never seen a more beautiful newborn. In one word you were ... perfect. We have never been filled with more love. Welcome to the world, Claudia. We love you!
