Josephine Claire Skemp arrived yesterday shortly after noon.
Claui went into labor Sunday night and was admitted to the hospital around 6 Monday morning. By noon it was determined that a C-Section was imperative.
Josie is in Newborn Intensive Care due to some complications but she and Claui are doing well. Justin tells me that some of the tubes have been removed since I took this picture. (UPDATE-- all but the IV are gone now and J and C got to hold Josie for an hour last night!)
When we were let in to see our granddaughter, they had a blanket over her eyes as she was sleeping but these pictures by Christine show a pretty face.
She's a little over eight pounds and measures 21 inches. Delicate hands and some rather amazing toes.
I am impatient to get to hold her in my arms. For now I'll hold her and Claui and Justin in my heart.
