Happy days.

To borrow a line from Melanie Hamilton Wilkes:

"The happiest days are when babies come."

My new niece, who wasn't supposed to be here for another month, made her way into the world on Tuesday! Her name is Clara Victoria, and although she is a tad premature, she's doing absolutely fine, as is her mom. My sister, who'd been scheduled for a c-section, went in for a routine check, and the doctors were concerned about the baby's heartbeat (which was too fast or not fast enough, I'm not entirely sure). So they decided to have her out that very day!

My mom, who flew out to California with my dad the very next day, reports that the baby has a lot of dark hair, is beautiful, and doesn't even look like a preemie. I'm pretty much jonesing hard for a picture, and will definitely hold a long grudge against my brother-in-law if he can't get me at least one little picture, soon! (ha ha! just kidding, J! I'll settle for a cell phone shot!)

Because babies don't respect schedules, especially knitting schedules, my projects are now officially late:

Story of my life. I've got to get cracking.

How exciting!!! Congrats to you and your family. And I'm so glad everything is fine with the baby - it's always scary when the doctors decide they need to be born early. Thanks for the GWTW fix too - Melly always new best. :)

Congratulations, Tia Olga! I just spent the weekend with my little nephews: having a gaggle is so much fun!
How is your other niece taking it?

Ooh, that's like what happened with my nephew. Scary while it's happening, but exciting afterwards.

Just remember: you're not late, she was early! She has no one to blame but herself. Luckily, it'll be a while before she can complain :)
