Henry Ignatius Clemens (a.k.a. Hank)


Well everyone. The day came, quite specifically on Friday, September 22 at around 5:15 in the morning I realized my water broke and that it was time to go to the hospital. Henry was born at 10:28am with the help of St. Benedict (a cross we hung on the wall of the delivery room) and the wonderful nurses and doctors of UNC hospitals. All I'll tell you now is that it was a beautiful birth, gentle and sweet. The prayers of many were heard and Henry has come into our lives, never to be the same again. Thank you sweet Mary and Jesus.

Georgie, he's so pretty!! Congratulations! I haven't talked to Aunt Dot or I'm sure I would have known sooner! I like the name--she said she thought "george" for a boy but I like Hank MUCH better. Please tell me weight, etc. I was worried about you having a baby too big to birth this time!
I'm so excited for y'all (and jealous!)

WOW!!! He's PERFECT!!! Makes me long for another wee one to care for and love. Hope all is well in the land of Five Crying Out Loud. Thomas and Emily LOVE his name. Their golden retriever is Henry Moses...Words cannot express how happy Jon and I are for you and Chris at this most blessed time in your family. Love to all. Can't wait to see handsome Hank in person!

Thanks for all your well-wishes. As far as his weight is concerned, he weighed just under 9lbs at 8lbs 15oz. A far cry from the 10lbs Jack weighed and 10 1/2 lbs Gus packed on. He looked really small to me....but no, people tell me he is BIG.....

Georgie - what a cutie!!! I know plenty of women who'd kill for that hair. Give Chris our best and God Bless You all!!

PS I love the pics of Becca with the band - so many memories ...

All our best ...Dietta
