Elizabeth has arrived

My brother and SIL have their baby girl today. The doctors took her by cesaerean section sometime early this morning at the Duluth hospital. She weighed only 3 lbs, so I am guessing she was very early (my mom _still_ didn't know how far along they were... *sigh*) The good news is she was breathing on her own. She will still stay in the NNICU at the hospital for some time. Mom is doing okay, but not feeling the best, of course after all of this emergency.

My brother told my mom he would pick up the boys to go see mom and baby at the hospital this weekend.

We wish continued good luck for all of them :)

Gosh, that is tiny. Hope she is doing ok - sending lots of warm thoughts to her and her family.

That's a little heavier - but not much, than my little brother and most of my friend's kids. (Everyone but Ashley was a preemie and she, the moose, was 11 lbs 7 oz.) Sorry to hear that she'll be in the hospital for a bit, but that's the best place for her!

Welcome to the world, Elizabeth!
