A Thoroughly Modern Baby Announcement

Claire's Family
My son and family

Between text messages, cell phone voice mail, two flights and final arrival in New Orleans, Mimi learned of the birth of her newest grand-daughter. The methodology of instant messaging may be new, but the same old words proclaim the news. "It's a girl," announces the proud pappa and love is born.

Sweet baby Claire arrived on February 20th at 3:24 PM, weighing 8 pounds. Mother and child are now home from the hospital and doing well.

Big sister Caroline is adjusting and I am thrilled to welcome Claire as grand-baby number four.

The family’s first photo arrived by e-mail on my Blackberry .
