Our Little Christmas Miracle

It has been a whirlwind for sure but the little Princess arrived at 3:46 AM Thursday December 12th!
She weighed 4 pounds 8 oz and was 16 1/2 inches long!
We almost missed it! I had been at the hospital all day with my daughter and the doctor checked her and said she had not changed at all and that the baby was not coming tonight and in fact  it could be a few more days. So we all went home including SIL to get some sleep around 10PM! At 3:21 AM I had a call from my Son-In-Law to hurry and get to the hospital...the baby was on her way!!!! So we got dressed and raced there...I may have broke some speed limits. We got there right as she was born!!!! It was a very emotional moment to say the least!
Klara is 6 weeks early so she has to stay in NICU for a few weeks. She is doing fine, although yesterday she developed Jaundice. The doctor said that was normal for her and to not worry. How do you do that? What a blessing she is and we are thrilled to be a part of her!
I only wish my Dad was here to see her. I know he is watching from above and keeping Klara company in the NICU while we are away.
