Welcome Baby Clara

We interrupt our regular scheduling to bring you this very important announcement. After 39 and a half weeks of ‘baking’, our little bun finally came out of the oven – and she is perfect.

Clara Aimée Zoë was born on Saturday, March 10, via a beautiful, natural VBAC. She weighed 8 lbs, 12 oz, (which makes her my biggest baby by a long shot) is completely healthy, and is already eating like a little pro.

Danny and I are hopelessly in love with our little sweetie, and big brothers, Noah and Mateo, are tickled pink. We were thrilled to have a short hospital stay and are now cozied up in our home, adjusting to life as a family of five.

We hope you’ll share in our joy. Welcome Baby Clara!

About Aimee

Cooking has always been Aimée's preferred recreational activity, creative outlet, and source of relaxation. After nearly ten years in the professional cooking industry, she went from restaurant to RSS by trading her tongs and clogs for cookie cutters and a laptop, serving as editor here at Simple Bites. Her first book, Brown Eggs and Jam Jars - Family Recipes from the Kitchen of Simple Bites, was published in February 2015.
