May surprise

Baby Claire surprised us today by declaring she should come 2 months early.
She is tiny but cute. (2 pound, 12 ounces, 15-1/2 inches long.)
The emergency C-section was a jolt, but everything is going well so far.

I'll try to post better pictures soon.

The back story: A couple of weeks ago our doctor had detected some potential problems and told us to keep a close watch on the baby's movements. So we called in on Saturday morning since Jen had not felt any kicks from the baby for a couple of hours. Then the doctor told us to check into the hospital, and after a couple hours of monitoring the baby heartbeat, they decided she was under too much stress to stay in.
