Sarah Claire Summar

Well, as Alicia posted, baby Claire arrived on Thursday afternoon. After I updated on Thursday morning saying we were heading to the hospital my contractions actually slowed waaaay down, but were really really painful when I had one. We went into the dr. and then they sent us back home. I'll post the whole "birth story" a little later, but we didn't end up getting back to the hospital until after 2 pm on Thursday and not into a room until around 3:45 and she was born at 3:55 p.m. It's definitely not the delivery I'd been planning, but I'm thankful it's over and that she's here and healthy.

We got home last night and Grant is doing pretty well with her. He loves her and wants to know where she is all of the time. He's demanding a bit more attention than normal, so we're all trying to cope. She has her days and nights a little confused. Hopefully, we can work that out in the next few days. I'll definitely post more of the story later and more pictures, but here are just a few from the last couple of days.
