Congratulations, Laura! I'm so happy for you and your family... and yes, eventually, you'll sleep longer than 30 minutes and Charlie will, indeed, fall in love w/his little sister. World peace... keep workin' on that! ;) Congrats again!

Congratulations Kurz family of 4! And welcome little Clara. She is just gorgeous. Thank goodness you made it to the hospital!!

Simon (my 11 week old) was very similar - quick birth (apparently I'm good at those) and he was 5lbs, 14oz and 18.1 inches (had to Google the conversions!).


She is beautiful and you are gonna have a lovely family and your 30 minutes of sleep. Enjoy your new life, LOL.




Congratulations and welcome, Clara! What a beautiful little girl.

Congratulations! :) She's so sweet! And as for the two year old thing...it took a couple months here, but the 2 year old is finally pretty great with the baby. She does occasionally try to pick him up or things like that, but she seems to know he's with us for good. ;)


Beautiful baby girl!

She's GORGEOUS!!!! Congratulations...what a beautiful name.


Just saw the news on your mom's blog! Many congratulations! Clara is absolutely beautiful. (And judging from that photo of Charlie blowing her a kiss on your mom's blog, I'd say he will be in love with his baby sister soon enough, if he isn't already there. :) May you and your family have many, many years of happy memory-making with baby Clara!

COngratulations Kurz family!! She is precious!! How did you came up w/ her name? I am very curious as my daughter's bff is named CLARA LOUISE & her younger brother's name is CHARLIE!! Weird coincidence!! Love to you all!

she is just beautiful : )


huge congratulations!


Congratulations! She's beautiful! I'm sure Charlie will become the best big brother. My girls just tolerated their baby brother for the first two weeks. Once they realized he wasn't going anywhere, they became great big sisters/mini mamas. He's now 19 and has been known to complain that he has three moms and can't get away with anything.

Leslie @ {Tiny Wings}

She's absolutely beautiful, Laura!! Congratulations!!


How cool to have a Charlie and Clara for this generation. Did I tell you I dreamt of her name before she was born? True story.

Christine Dodaj

What a beautiful little girl!

Kimberly L.C.

OMG...she is ridiculously beautiful! I guess my guess of Camilla wasn't too far from Clara. Go me! (j/k) In all seriousness, congratulations Kurz family!
