introducing our little sister

She’s here!
Clara Rose Willard.
Born Thursday 2/9, 7lb 13oz, 21.5 inches long.
We absolutely love her.
Thank you all for the sweet comments and excitement. They were really fun to read while sitting in my hospital bed, getting to know this little girl.

Clara is the best baby I’ve had so far.
Fingers crossed that things stay that way. But really, she’s just a happy girl. Eats, sleeps, and when she’s awake, just looks around with her pretty little eyes. She seems so curious.
She has chubby little cheeks like the other kids did, the most hair of any of them (which I’m sure will fall out and come in blonde), and the wrinkliest feet I’ve ever seen.
The delivery went great….just as you all predicted.
In fact the doctor almost missed it all. I went from being “almost ready” to “um, there’s the head. Quick call the doctor” in a very short period of time. My doctor walked in the room, threw on her gear, I pushed, and there was Clara. I feel very fortunate since it’s made the recovery all that much easier.

It all felt surreal, moving that fast.ย  And boy there is nothing in life that compares to experiencing birth….whether you’re the mother, the father, or the nurse in the room assisting with it all. In fact after Lucy was born I wanted to become a nurse because I was so touched by the whole birth experience. I started the schooling but didn’t get far because then Owen was born. And now with the amount of time I spend on creative outlets, it may never happen. But I have such a respect for the care those nurses gave me. They were all fabulous and I’m jealous that they get to witness births every day. How cool.
We brought the Heart Garland with us to decorate our Valentine’s crib.
The nurses thought it was pretty fun.
And the kids weren’t quite sure what to make of Clara at first.
They were super excited and smiled when they saw her…but then glanced out the window, “hey Mom, there’s a park down the street!” And when she started crying they both plugged their ears because it was “just too loud.”
They’ve got a lot to look forward to!

Little by little though, they warmed up her.
getting closer and closer,
so we could take a pic of all three kids.
and then it was back to playing games on Dad’s phone.
Since we’ve been home though they’ve been more interested in what Clara is doing and wanting to help out where they can.
We’re so blessed to have another sweet child in our family.
Thank you for your emails, comments, prayers, and thoughts. It’s fun to share this moment with you guys. I’m not sure what the next few weeks hold or how much I’ll be blogging. I don’t feel super motivated for it at the moment. But when the time is right, I’ll pop in. And I do plan to do a mini “Celebrate Baby” sometime soon since I have a few baby projects stock-piled.
Have a great week,
– Dana

  13. What a doll! Congratulations to you all… you are too funny with your heart garland- I may have to steal that idea for our march baby (shamrocks maybe?) ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Dana-

    What a beautiful baby! Even though we’ve never met, I love to sew and I too have three kiddos so I’ve love your blog. I couldn’t wait to hear your baby’s name because I too have an Owen (and a William and a Caroline) and William’s name was going to be Lucy if he was a girl. We are hoping to adopt a Lucy (or a Finnegan) soon! I love that you took your heart garland to the hospital. Enjoy falling in love with baby Clara and thanks for sharing!

  15. congratulations Dana! she is BEAUTIFUL!

    Congratulations, she is adorable! And has such great hair! Hope you are adjusting well to your new family of 5! I’m really nervous about biting the bullet and having a third… so it’s reassuring to see such a sweet little baby. Makes me think maybe I can do it some day!

  40. 42) Stephanie

    I’m SO happy for you! I love, love, love your blog and just made my little boys (3 and 1) some darling shorts thanks to your fabulous tutorials. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful and inspiring ideas! I wish you and your family a wonderful babymoon. Oooooh… and now I’m really wanting another baby of my own!

  41. 43) Tami Brown

    Such a beautiful blessing! Thank you for sharing such a special time in your family.

  42. 44) Natalie H

    She looks just like Owen! And so mature and alert for a newborn. Congratulations on your baby and your birth experience! Take your time healing; we’ll all be here, looking at pictures of Ms. Clara Rose again and again until you return.

  43. SO happy for you all! What a gift. Both the birth and the little one. Take your time getting back to blogging. We will miss you, but those babies only stay small for so long . . . enjoy it while it lasts. ๐Ÿ™‚ And for goodness sakes, girl . . . get some rest!

  44. Congratulations!!! Clara is a beautiful girl! I love her chubby cheeks and her hair! I’ve been also checking daily to get news, thinking on you and sending positive energy. I am happy to hear that the delivery was fast and smooth! And you look gorgeous!!!
    Enjoy this happiness!!! Many xox to the whole family!

  45. 48) Karin

    Congratulations! She is adorable – and looks just like you in one of those pictures!

    My boys both had about that much hair at birth and it never fell out so you never know. My older son’s was dark, dark brown and then it started growing in blond, so people asked me if I’d dyed his hair. Nope, but it was cute (and funny).

  46. 49) Emily

    Well she is just GORGEOUS! So much pretty hair! She looks so alert for a brand new baby! The name is beautiful! And I am laughing so hard that you thought to decorate the hospital crib!!!!!!
    What a beautiful time in your life!

  47. Congratulations! She is beautiful!
    I wish you lots of rest ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. what a beautiful baby! congratulations!!

  49. 52) Nicki


  50. oh, congratulations – she’s just gorgeous. i forgot how sweet that downy skin is… clara is on our short list of names for my in-utero baby, if it turns out to be a girl!!

  51. 54) Angie

    she is so yummy! Enjoy every minute of her. They grow up so fast and the more babies you have the faster they grow up!

  52. 55) Erin Waters

    She is just beautiful! I love her cheeks! Congratulations to you and don’t worry about getting on your blog for a while…snuggle that precious baby.

  53. Oh yay! Congrats! I am glad everything went well and that you are home. Kids are funny sometimes when adjusting, aren’t they? I’m glad they are warming up to Clara. What a beautiful name too!

  54. Congratulations with this beautiful little girl. Enjoy the baby time, it is over before you know it (as you of course know)!

  55. Congrats on your beautiful baby girl!!! i wish you and your family the best!!! and those are the cutest, wrinkliest feet i have ever seen!!! i am in cute overload!!!

  56. she looks like owen! what a cutie! and you never know, i expected my baby’s brown hair to fall out and come in blonde like here sister’s but so far she’s 8 months, and still very brunette!

  57. 60) British American

    Ohhh, she’s so adorable! Congratulations!

    Very happy that your delivery went so well. My 3rd is 11 months old today. He was also born very quickly and it was surreal for me too. (Plus we didn’t find out his gender ahead of time, so that added to the surreal feeling.)

    Cute how Lucy and Owen reacted too. My oldest two were the same when they came to meet their new baby brother. They were more interested in the cool bed, which we let them sit in and ‘ride on’.

    Enjoy your new family! Best wishes!

  58. 61) Ang

    Congratulations! She’s absolutely adorable.

  59. 62) Tina C.

    Reading your story makes me wonder even more how my own little girl will be… I’ll know within a month or so.
    Enjoy your family!

  61. 64) Erin

    She’s just absolutely so sweet. Hope the next few weeks bring joy and rest….we know you’ll be back to blogging eventually, but Clara will only be tiny for a few minutes. Take your time. Enjoy! And congratulations!

  62. Awe, what a doll! She’s gorgeous, congratulations to your wonderful family. She has the exact same adorable nose and you and Owen. Lovely!

  63. 67) Connie

    She is precious! I think she looks a bit like Owen. Enjoy your precious new baby!

  64. She’s perfect! Congratulations, mama!

  65. 69) Leigh Ann

    What a beautiful name for a beautiful girl.

  66. 71) Michelle

    She is absolutely adorable and love her name, congratulations!

  67. 72) Shelley

    She’s beautiful! I love the pictures of her in the hospital bed with her little feet sticking out of the gown, too cute! I’ve been trying to get pregnant for a while now, and these pictures remind me of why were trying to so hard! ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your little blessing

  68. You just made me all teary-eyed! What a perfect joy, having a baby in the house. HUGE congratulations (with just the teensiest touch of envy) on your new happy baby. She is, naturally, PERFECT and I couldn’t be more excited for all of you. Thrilled that all went well, hope you’re getting lots of rest!

I am a doula…have you given that some thought? YOU’d be awesome:) Get some rest:)))

  79. Congratulations! She’s a doll, so, SO cute! And looking so grown-up for some reason, as if she knows it all already. Wishing you all the best, may your transition to a party of five be smooth! Katja

  80. The biggest congrats! She is so beautiful! And I think she looks a lot like Lucy in the first picture. Great idea to bring some home-made garlands to the hospital.

  88. 95) LeAnn

  172. 187) Maureen

    She is beautiful, as you always knew she would be. They are so sweet when they are brand new, a tiny bit fuzzy, and just showing us their own personalities a little at a time. Enjoy her and try to rest. Been there, loved most minutes of it — every once in a while it was not so fun, but overall surely worth it all!

  173. Congratulations Dana! She looks so cute and healthy and you don’t look like someone that just had a baby!
    Have fun
    They grow so quickly

  174. 190) Estelle

    I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now…never left a comment…today is the day! Big congratulations on your cutie…she is the same weight as my Louis when he was born three months ago! Now he is 15lbs! Cant wait for you to write more but enjoy your time with your precious children first!!

  175. Oh, what a sweet darling baby and what a lovely name. Congratulations Dana, to you and all your beautiful family.

  176. 192) meganleiann

    She’s beautiful! I am so happy your labor went well and that your recovery seems to be quick as well- and to get an (so-far) easy baby is just an awesome blessing! Enjoy her! We’ll be here when you get back!

  177. 193) Jen

    Congrats! Little Clara is darling ๐Ÿ™‚

  178. congratulations dana! i just love that pic, “back to games on dad’s iphone.” classic! reminds me of when i had my third child (daughter), back in the day it was “gameboy.” i didn’t let my boys play much with their gameboys, but since they were going to be in the hospital with me while i was in labor, i let them bring, and play with their gameboys. (they about your older ones ages!) they would stare up once in a while at me while i was in labor and then went back to their games. once sister came, they gave her attention. anyway, that photo made me laugh.

    glad that you and baby are both in good health!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ you looks so gorgeous for someone who has just given birth, and baby, she is just *precious.* cute, wrinkled feet and all! ๐Ÿ™‚

  179. 195) Kathy

    Oh, Dana, she’s beautiful! And her name is close to my daughter’s! So happy for you. You have my official permission to forget about the book for a bit and just be a family. Your editor

  180. 196) Nanna Chel

    Dana – congratulations on the safe birth of your little Clara! Don’t worry about your website at this stage and just enjoy your little one as the days go by so quickly when they are young. Take it from a grandma as I would love to have those days back. Enjoy your little girl. She is so very cute.

    Nanna Chel

  181. 197) Brittney

    Wow, she is beautiful. I have an 8 month old, but looking at her makes me almost want another. Almost ๐Ÿ™‚ They grow so darn quick. And I love the name. What an adorable family!

We’ll all still be here when you decide the time is right to pop back;)

  184. Congratulations! She is a beautiful girl. I’m glad everything went well for you! I hope you recover quickly and have time to enjoy this special time!

  216. Congratulations, Dana! It makes me so broody I can’t stand it, my baby is so old now (18mo…)
    I love reading fast deliveries that went well ๐Ÿ™‚ But fast IS intense. Take your time and enjoy your babymoon. Clara is beautiful! What a nice photograph subject she makes!

  217. 235) Ashley Lemaster

    Beautiful baby and I love the name Clara. So gorgeous! Have a great time with your little baby…we will be waiting your awesomeness whenever you feel like getting back in!

    Congrats on your beautiful blessing! Clara is adorable. Love the pic of all 3 kids… so sweet!

  219. Oh Congratulations! She is exquisite! What a beautiful baby! Thank you for sharing her with us! Such beautiful pictures! I’m so glad it all went so well. I’m almost clucky (almost!)

  220. Beautiful birth story! My kids were the same when my hubby and I had our 3rd boy. The older two were way more interested in the construction going on out the window than their new baby bro! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Congrats to you and your family. She is beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚
    xoxo {And Happy Valentines Day!!}

  221. Congratulations to all the Willards! Baby Clara is precious. Have a beautiful time getting to know one another.

  222. Congrats, Dana! You certainly are blessed! And so you don’t feel too bad about the sibling thing: my son was 3.5 when little sister was born and I didn’t get one good picture of both of them together until she was about 8 months old. Big brother just didn’t want anything to do with her. BUT now they’re great friends (now that he’s “matured” – you know – he’s 5 now, so he can teach her everything – ha!), and they have a little brother, too. Rest well, chickie. Being momma has to come before friends (even bloggy friends!) ๐Ÿ™‚ C

  223. 241) emily

    yay for babies! she is darling–I love chubby cheeks and round baby heads ๐Ÿ™‚ and also…this is probably the last thing you want to hear, but we are expecting a baby girl in April and I was so shocked (and felt somewhat connected to you) when I checked your blog and saw that you named her Clara! that’s the name we have picked for our little girl as well. ours will be Clara Momoko (the middle name is after her Japanese great-grandmother). anyway, you have great taste in names ๐Ÿ™‚ good luck with the transition to 3, getting sleep, and all those other weird things that are happening to your body after having a baby! lol. hope you’re feeling well!

  224. Oh, she is precious! I’d been watching on facebook, and am so happy for you and your family. I love the name you chose, and oh, those wrinkly feet are amazing. I’m so, so happy for you, Casey and the kids. Enjoy these early weeks, and get all the rest you can.

    Lots of happy thoughts your way from Idaho. โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

  225. 243) Andrea

    She’s a beauty! And you are too, looking gorgeous after you just gave birth!

  226. 244) Andrea

    Welcome, Clara!! She is perfectly lovely! ๐Ÿ™‚ My third baby is now 10 months old and by far my easiest baby. There’s just something about being a mother for the third time. I’ve enjoyed all my kids’ babyhoods, but #3’s has been especially delightful. I think part of it is that my other kids are now old enough to enjoy him with me.

  227. What a BEAUTY!
    My third was my easiest delivery and my happiest/easiest baby! Also born with the most hair and it was dark dark and now she is a blonde!!
    So happy for you and your family!!

  228. Congratulations! She’s beautiful.
    Enjoy her being so small. Pretty soon, she’ll be keeping up with big brother and big sis!

  229. 248) Janelle

    Congratulations – She is STUNNING!!

  230. 249) Jennifer Burnham

    Congratulations Dana! She is absolutely adorable! I’m so glad the delivery went so well. I’m next in a couple weeks so it’s good to hear happy stories ๐Ÿ™‚

  231. 250) Cary

    Yay! Congratulations, what a beautiful baby, I love her hair! 3rd children are delightful, it’s God’s gift to us for having that many. ๐Ÿ™‚ As a L&D nurse and momma I agree, birth is beautiful, amazing, hard and wonderful. So glad that you had good care and a great experience. Enjoy your days, I look forward to hearing about the baby projects when you are ready.

  232. Congratulations! Another beautiful girl. I’m so excited for you!

  233. I have been wondering about you and sweet baby girl! Hope you are feeling great and that #3 is the easiest adjustment — it was/is with our family. Babies are such blessings ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats!

  234. So beautiful! Congratulations!

  235. 255) Melissa D.

    Your family inspire me to do something interesting and always think about family feeling inside me and my family members. Thank you!

    Congrats!!! She is beautiful!!!

  272. 294) Stacie

    Congratulations! I’m usually not one to comment, but I couldn’t resist. When I first started reading your blog I was amused that my son (almost 5) is named Owen, and I really wanted to name my daughter (almost 2) Lucy, but couldn’t because that was my sister’s dog’s name. So she’s Clara. When I read your post jut now and saw that your sweet new dear is Clara, I thought that was kind of wild. She’s beautiful! Enjoy!

  273. 295) Yifat

    Congratulations! She so sweet ! Take your time to rest eat feed and generally to get use to the larger family of yours, we’ll be waiting patiently for you to come back…
    I have 3 kids and we are waiting for another one to come in august, so I permit myself to give you a tip:
    Let Lucy and Owen help and be part off taking care off little Clara as much as they can and want, but at this stage don’t leave them alone with her. Things can happen even with the best intention…
    Wish all the best!!!

  274. 296) nele

    Oh, that first picture! She looks so much like Owen… Congrats!!

  275. 297) Christiana

    WOW!!! She is absolutely gorgeous!!!
    And she looks so mature. Not like few-days-baby.
    Her eyes are so big and intelligent.
    I couldn’t wait when you post some info about you.
    I was entering your site everyday and thinking:”Maybe her girl was already born?”
    Today while I was coming back home I was thinking what I gotta do. “So, I only check my email. I don’t have so much time. Dana didn’t publicate any news so far, so maybe today she haven’t publicated it yet” But I’m very consistent and what I saw is your beautiful baby! She has very funny hair ๐Ÿ˜€ So long and so dark. I think like you – they should get brightness.

    God bless you (all)!
    Greetings from Poland,

  299. Congratulations!
    I read you for a long time, but I don’t dare to write a message because of my bad English! But the arrival of your 3rd beauty motivated me to write you.
    Beautiful life in 5 .
    I look forward to hearing from you soon!

  305. Congratulations, Dana! She’s so precious. I remember after my daughter was born last August that I had no crafty mojo whatsoever. Don’t feel pressured to come back to the blog, we know you’re busy! (But baby pictures make for quick posts, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I feel like if our paths were ever to cross in real life we would be friends because I have two little blondes same age and gender as yours, and we just had our third on Christmas day!! That heart garland was so cute, I wish I would have thought of something like that to make our little guys baby bucket more festive:) I’m glad to hear she is so easy, and so excited for you and your family! Have a happy recovery and Valentines day!

    Hi Willards,
    Congratulations for the new baby born.
    Dana: I miss your posts but on the other hand I wish you enjoy these moments with Clara. As you said, there are moments that will pass and you will soon miss them. So just enjoy the full family and these days/weeks together.

  354. How cute! And what a sweet little baby!

  355. 383) Jen

    Congrats Dana! My daughter’s name is Rose so of course I love her name! As much as I love your blog, take your time coming back! Enjoy that sweet baby!

  356. 384) Sara

    I can’t get enough of her. I think Clara officially made Mark baby hungry… “so when are going to have another one Sara?” I can’t wait to meet her. Please post lots of pictures in the coming weeks.
    And I had no idea you started school for nursing. I would LOVE to go to nursing school, just seems near impossible most days. Maybe someday. I wish I would’ve done it before having kids, but you really don’t know how amazing it is until you experience it.

  357. 385) Kristina

    Congratulations! ๐Ÿ™‚ She’s really a cutie!!

    Congratulations, she is beautiful. And what a pretty name! Enjoy your time with the family.

  418. 449) Alison Curtin

    Congratulations! I happened onto your site, and it was a treat to read about your newest addition! She was born on the same date as my first child ~ February 9th. I also had 2 more children after him, and I agree, the third one was the easiest. I think a lot of that is because you just can’t help but get better at your job, and after having 2, everything begins to run more smoothly – from labor to running the house! My oldest is now 27, and my advice to you is to really keep doing what you’re doing – take good care of yourself, do what you love, be yourself, and teach your children to do the same. Congratulations!

  419. Congratulations! She is adorable! Love how chubby she already is. My third was one of my hardest! LOL! Hopefully she’ll be a good one for you. Having three kids changes things, now you don’t have enough hands. Good luck with everything. Looking forward to seeing little Clara grow up and all the cute things I’m sure you have made and will make for her. Now go get some sleep! ๐Ÿ™‚

  420. 451) Stacey Cote

    I have been reading your blog for a while now and loving all your projects…wishing I had a little more time to try them all. But I have three wee ones too and well somehow the days fly by.

    I read your comment on how the baby was loud and it took me back – my little one is now 17 months old but we used to laugh and say “that is one loud rooster” when he really got going…time flies. Congratulations to you and your family – enjoy every precious moment – it really does fly by too quickly!

    Oh and keep the wonderful projects coming – we love them all!

I am in Ontario Canada and wonder if you know of any fabric sites to buy from I am finding I have to buy from the states and the shipping fees are outrageous
