Mary Clare

Mary Clare Thole Lindh graced us with her presence on Christmas day. After lounging around at St. John's for 20 or so hours, she made her grand entrance at 1:18 AM on December 25, weighing in at 7 lbs., 8 oz., and measuring 20 inches.

Everyone at Team Botanical is happy and healthy. We are, without a doubt, enchanted by our little girl. The past week has flown by, and while I have lost track of time (I couldn't believe it this morning when Chip told me that today is New Year's Eve), I will tell you that each day gets better and better. We're so stinking lucky, I can't even stand it.

I will stop now before it gets any more boastful around here. Or I cry. Whichever comes first.

Our thanks to everyone who has sent well wishes. We can't wait for you to meet our little bird.
