As many of you have gotten to know us, the realization sets in that we are not normal and like to do things outside of the box. Personality traits include goofy, spontaneous, etc... Well apparently, we have passed these down to our daughter, Klare Amour. She decided to exhibit all of these and "leave school early" to enter the pros on Tuesday, January 31st. She was born at 1:45pm at 28 weeks and 3 days. She is 2 lbs 7 oz, and 13 1/2 inches long. Mom was at work when she decided to call the doctor due to contractions. After an hour on being monitored and the doctor being able to feel Klare's feet, it was time for her to be welcomed to the world. (Yes, Momma freaked out, and Daddy rushed to make sure he could witness her debut)
She's perfect, just a little tiny for the "pro" world out there. (Reports has it her ears wanted a break from Erik's terrible off pitch singing in the womb. These haven't been verified.) She is currently on an extended vacation at the Health Park NICU. Taking after her French name she's going to eat some of the finest wines, meats, and cheeses to grow a bit more they believe until April. Morgan is doing great, just sore from the C-Section but improving daily. We are both in shock but feel extremely blessed as she is has been breathing on her own the entire time. God is laughing as is what happens when one makes plans, but has been good to the 3 of us.
Thank you for all of the offerings of help, love and encouragement as we take on this amazing journey with Klare.
As for those of you who are parents, we get it now. We are hoping to use this site to share updates throughout Klare's vacation.
