Claire Savannah has arrived! Several events, including power and Internet outages, have precluded an earlier online announcement. Of course, I understand you care less about the announcement per se, and more about pictures. All in due time, all in due time. Now that our Internet is working (and hopefully continues to do so), we’ll try to share our little Claire (aka, “Baby Bean,” as she’s been called by Evie for the past 9 months) with the rest of you.

Details: Claire was born at 11:36 pm on August 29th. We arrived at the hospital at around 7:30 pm, and after being told the nurses were “not terribly impressed” by Lisa’s contractions, we suspected that they might send us home. Lisa, never one to turn down a challenge, impressed the nurses forthwith, and the phase known as “active labor” (an oddly redundant term) began. Within a few short hours (short, says the man whose primary task was to say “breathe honey; remember to breathe”), our wonderful doctor announced that the stage was set. And within minutes, Claire arrived and introduced herself with a steady wail. She was 7 lbs, 15oz and 20 and 3/4 inches at birth.

Both baby and Mommy are doing quite well, and Big Sister Evie has welcomed Claire with open arms (we’ll see how long this lasts when they want to borrow each others’ sweaters). More – including pictures – to come (our Internet connection comes and goes lately, so online access has been quite limited). This posting and more will be available at the family website:
