At this time I don’t intend to publish photos of my child on the blog for the whole world. However, I will upload photos to my Flickr account, which is (It may take a day or two to get them uploaded.) Photos of my babe will be given a designation so that only friends and family can see them. This means you need to:

  1. create a free account on Flickr if you haven’t already;
  2. designate me as a contact by going to my profile and in the upper right corner, clicking “add Mindful One as a contact”;
  3. which triggers an email notifying me, and then I’ll make you a contact with the correct status. It might take me a couple days to get to the email, so please be patient.

This most amazing event transcends words…

(note: This is being published by her friend Mark. Just wanted to note that Baby, Mother and Father are tired, but healthy and headed to sleep after a long day. We wish them a quick recovery and sweet dreams!)

    Congratulations!!! I’m so happy for you all! I love the name, too. Claire is one of my daughter’s middle names (after my grandma, Clara) and seems to be getting a bit more popular. I think it is a lovely name and quite classic. 🙂

    Again, congratulations! I have you already as a contact on Flickr, so when you get a chance, please check to make sure I have the right designation. Thanks! I’m sure she’s gorgeous!

    Congratulations on your baby girl! Many blessings upon you and your family.

    I can’t wait to see little Claire. 🙂 Which reminds me, I had you listed as a contact already – just changed you to friend – so you won’t get an email from me adding you. If you could mark “kendiala” as a friend instead of a contact, I would appreciate it!
