Claire Allison is here!!!

Claire Allison was born Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at 6:42 p.m. at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, and 21 inches long. Labor was LOOOONG, starting at 8:15 am and stalling out several times. But in the end, getting from 7 cm to holding a clean baby in my arms was approximately 30 minutes, so she made up for it!
So far, she has a very sweet temperament, tolerating the older kids with ease, sleeping and eating and pooping just like a baby should. Nights have been relatively easy, and she has had absolutely no day/night confusion. (KNOCK ON WOOD!!!) The siblings ADORE her and smother her with adoration and kisses all the time! Olivia calls her "My cutie pie" and "My pooh bear" and I have to PUSH Sam away multiple times a day. He is very protective of her, asks to hold her ALL the time, and kisses her all day long. Hopefully things will stay this way, but we'll see...
