Hi you guys, Ok, so I just spent the first 45 minutes at work wandering
the chloe website! What a doll! And what a great way to bring your friends
into your world with Chloe. I have to say I got veryteary-eyed. The picture
of Lori's clenched fist in bed also brought back a lot of memories...I
did a lot of clenching myself! She is absolutley beautiful...of course!
What a total joy..I know how great these first days at home are. Your
nursery takes on a whole new meaning because there is a part of you that
now resides there. I am so happy for you two (three!) How is her foot?
I am assuming things are well and pray to that end. Lori, when we were
together you mentioned the doctors saying that because Chloe had two abnormal
things there is a slight chance there could be a third. Any info there?
How long was your labor? Were you induced or not? Well, I best get back
to work! I am so excited to meet little Chloe. When your energy returns
(like in about 20 years!) let me know who to invite to the shower. I am
looking forward to that. Life doesn't get much better than what you are
experiencing right now! Bless you all...
Congratulations Lori!! What a beautiful little girl! when she gets into
Jr high, send her to me for a week & I'll tell her some helpful stories
about her mommy when she was her age!! i pray you all are doing well.
I miss you! We're going to be in S. CA for Mike Zuber's wedding in July,
but I'm sure that won't help us cross paths... Things are great here,
Paul has decided to go into missions as a career! He is back home at a
JC to do his gen ed. Gina has a year left to her master's in counselling
then she will be on her way (long road!). Take care my friend,

Hi chloe this is your cousin Traci. We are very anxious to meet you. You
are a very beautiful little girl and your cousin Harrison looks forward
to playing with you. Be good for your mommy and daddy and we will see
you soon hopefully.
Dane, I am amazed. About ten weeks after Jack's birth, I'll finally be
posting a Website tonight or tomorrow. Yours just keeps getting better
and better by the moment... just moments after birth! And I can't believe
what a beauty Chloe is. No wait. Yes I can. She definitely resembles you.
I can see why you're so proud... Love being kept posted--
Welcome to the world, little Chloe. What a special family you have come
into!! Take care of mommy and daddy and don't be too hard on Grandma Ruth.
We need her here soon and she has to be in top form in order to answer
all the questions her students have. Tell her to listen to her voice mail
and sleep on the plane coming back to Santa Barbara.

I finally got onto the site. It looks killer! I am not really a "baby
guy" but the site made me smile. I really understand your pride and love
for the little Chloe. Wow! May I get your permission to post this to quokka
rap? Hope life is treating you well. PS thanks of the compliments. Check
out the new MDS. Not as good as last years.. but I directed it myself
and had one designer to help. So the team was tiny compared to last years
My dearest Chloe, Welcome! It's so wonderful to finally see your picture.
This whole family has been very anxious to meet you. It's about time we
got a new face around here. I am very excited to meet you face to face.
I think you will see me for the first time this summer. I was very pleased
to see the mobile that you are using over your crib. I took a child psychology
class once and the colors and designs that were used in your mobile facilitate
maximal visual stimulation. You are already off to a great start! :-)
I'll see you soon!
Dave, Jennet, Chris, Burt, Kathryn, Jane, Rick, Mike, Diane, Ed are stuffed
from Easter dinner- Dan, Jason and friends already left. Chloe you are
beautiful!!!!! Welcome to our family!!!!!!!!! Congratulations Dane and
Lori - you did good!
Hi Chloe! You are one lucky little girl! You have soooo much to look forward
too! You have the most wonderful Mommy and Daddy any child could ever
hope for...and after only being in this world just a few days...it is
already very apparent that you are loved, very, very much! We look forward
to meeting you soon! You look so beautiful on your web-sight! Tell your
Mommy and Daddy that we are so happy for them, they are very lucky to
be so blessed! All our love,
Allison and Chad
Hi Dane, Lori, and Chloe, The pictures are wonderful. What a beautiful
little doll you have. We are rejoicing with you at this miracle God has
brought into your lives. Your web site is terrific! Hope you are having
a blessed Easter.
Uncle Ron and Aunt Grace
Chloe, I was seated here in the office trying to get some work done. However,
all I could do was look at your pictures. We must quickly get our game
plan together so you can do the number on your parents before they get
wise to your tricks. Remember, what ever you do...do it quickly and often...then
just look cute and innocent. I have some words of wisdom from Mike and
Katelyn...for your parents...the Surgeon General has determined that prolonged
exposure to infants may result in loss of sleep, stained clothing, inability
to dine in fine restaurants and long-term depletion of savings accounts.
Should you require further info about the topic just ask two people with
blood shot eyes and no money that live in Yorba Linda.
TO THE WORLD BABY CHLOE! YOU ARE A MIRACLE! YOU ARE A BEAUTY! YOU ARE
ONE LUCKY BABY GIRL TO HAVE CHOSEN LORI AND DANE TO LOVE YOU AS YOUR MOMMY
AND DADDY! WE CELEBRATE YOU! CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
CHLOE! Welcome, you little 2 -day-old beauty!!! I just saw your pictures
on the internet....(Dane and Lori are exposing you early!!) :-) You are
beautiful....and are an extremely lucky lady to have parents like Dane
and Lori! I wonder what you are thinking right now with all these people
admiring your tiny little nose, ears and hands.....
Congratulations, Dane and Lori! What an amazing gift you have created!
I cannot imagine something more beautiful .... to be created out of complete
love for each other! I am so excited for you two! I look forward to the
day when I get to meet your beautiful daughter! You are amazing people
and are going to make incredible parents.... Thank you for sharing the
website with me.....I love it!!!! It is something I will cherish and find
great joy in re-reading!! Congratulations, and thank you for your friendship!!!
with love and many HUGS for all 3 of you!
Congratulations! She is absolutely beautiful (what else would you expect
from such a handsome couple!) We are thrilled for you and can't wait to
meet little Chloe... and introduce her to Jack :o) The very best for restful
& bonding days ahead. Keep us posted (web site was great... Dane, not
only are you talented with images, you have a real gift for language...

You are one photogenic little girl! Are you always as peaceful as you
look, or is the camera man/person just there at the right time? Did you
know people are celebrating your grand entrance into the world all over
the world? You Daddy has done a fine job of showing off his little girl.
You are a lucky one! I can't wait to meet you in person. I'll come around
for a visit in a few days. Be good to your parents, Chloe, and sleep when
it is dark outside.
Hi Chloe! This is Uncle Dave. I was surprised when I saw your picture.
Aunt Kim described you to me over the phone last night (my car phone;
I'm an LA man) after talking to your Mommy, but you look different to
me. You remind me of your cousin Katelyn. I called your Aunt Kim from
a hockey game and later on the road to see if you arrived yet!
I call Katelyn "Katie Bug;" I'll have to think of a name for you! I can't
wait to buy you ice cream and toys. Now I have TWO little cutie pies to
dote over. Is your hair red or brown? I hope its like your Mommy's, because
sometimes your Daddy's hair sticks out in all funny directions! I'll show
you some time! We will have lots of giggles. I hope you get plenty of
rest and I hope your foot gets better real fast. Katelyn's Grandpa Bill
will think of you when he looks at his foot in a bandage.
Don't let Grandma Ruth give you Diet Coke just yet, its icky! Try not
to flirt with the baby boys in the nursery, even though your Mommy might
tend to encourage it. She doesn't mean it; she just wants to see what
your Daddy will do about it. I hope you like your cozy new blankets, and
your new Grandmas and Grandpas.
Have sweet dreams!
She's incredibly georgous, and you guys will be such great parents. I'm
quite speechless..... It was so good to see you both before the big event,
and am so happy that it all turned out with no glitches. Enjoy every second,
as even as the time seems so slow in the beginning,you will suddenly wonder
how she got so grown up so fast. Thank you all for sharing such a wonderous
All my best,
Nancy Kaufman (of Nancy and Spencer)
Hi Dane and Lori Loved your announcement! Congratulations...to your new
addition to this world Chloe. She's Beautiful! Our thoughts are with you...
When your settled, we'd love to come by and visit.
Lots a Luv,
Mary Jo and John
Chloe, We welcome you with love and joy. We wish you the very best and
happiest life possible. We know your parents are so happy that you are
finally here. You have the greatest grandparents and aunt and uncle in
the world. We will look forward to holding you soon.
Dave and Suzanne
Chloe, welcome, we have been eagerly anticipating your arrival - I'm glad
you finally made it. You will be happy to know that you lucked out - you
have the greatest two people as parents. I know things are a little frantic
right now, but just sit back and relax. We all love you and are at your
Dear Baby Chloe,
First of all, let me tell you what a true little gift from Heaven you
are! I've been hearing about you for months from your Daddy (who by the
way is one of the kindest men I know!). He and your mommy are so excited
to have you! As your Daddy tells me, he and your mommy planned very carefully
for you and have been counting the days until they could share their life
with you. How fortunate you are that you have two incredible people in
your life to be your teachers. And the really great thing is you get to
be a teacher for your parents as well. I can't wait to meet you! Until
Dane and Lori- congratulations to the both of you. The pictures look fantastic
and Chloe looks beautiful, a real reflection on both parents. Hope the
next years are easier than the last few days sounded.
hi chloe, good to have you in this world! you must congratulate your parents
for me when you get old old enough to speak. they must be very proud!
you are so cute! and your dad's website looks awfully familiar to me but
i can't place it. again, glad to see that you are healthy, and don't forget
to congratulate dane and lori.
m. 01: MATT SNOW,
Dear Chloe, This is your grandmother Diane writing to you. We are anxious
for your arrival into this world. As I sat in church this morning and
admired all of the darling young children around us, I found myself wondering
just what you will look like. No doubt a real beauty, just look at your
parents. Please come soon! We already LOVE you so very much
She sleeps like a charm after that. I'm still defining "charm",
but check in with me later.
