FOOD52 friends, cooks, countrymen! It is with absolute joy that we announce the newest (and undeniably cutest) member of our motley crew: Merrill's sweet and lovely little girl, at just under two weeks and counting, one Ms. Clara Pauline Dorman!

Mother and baby are doing beautifully, nesting happily and generally being adorable at all times.

Clara already has throngs of fans, though Amanda is a serious contender for #1.

Clara is so popular, she actually already has a suitor! Meet Charlie, Peter Steinberg's very own adorable creation. They've hit it off so far, but Clara can't be tied down quite yet.

Plus, she's pretty sweet on this pacifier. She finds it rather ... pacifying.

congratulations! Does this mean we'll be getting suggestions on what to cook if you're seriously sleep deprived and can't concentrate for more than 20 minutes at a stretch? I do remember those days...if foggily...
