Kiera Jean is Born!!!!

by:John

Well, for those of you who have been checking the site every day to see if the new baby has arrived, you can consider your quest concluded because Kiera Jean Clancy breathed her first lung-ful of fine Scotish air. Yup, Kiera Jean is the name. Kiera is pronounced like Key- Air- ah. However, the Scots seem to say it a little more like Keera, which I seem to favor. So, that’s the first name, and the middle name is Jean, after my Grandma… And, for all those who know my Grandma, Yes! She cried. (Sorry I told everyone Grandma, but I doubt anyone’s too surprised.)
Anyway, it was a very quick labor, four hours or so. Rachel had been having contractions (I keep wanting to call them contraptions) for the last couple of days, but they weren’t consistent until late this morning. We figured we still had time, so we had lunch. Well, after the food and a brief rest, they were really coming on strong. By the time we got to the hospital, she had had more contraptions than Thomas Edison. Seriously, they were coming every three minutes, and hard. The first bed they put her in was really tiny, and her feet hung off the edge. But, we were both really excited.

This is the little bed that Rachel was on when we first got there. I thought it was cute the way her feet hung from the bed.

Most of that excitement had turned to pure focus by the time that we arrived on the labor ward, a floor up. While the nurses rushed around to get everything prepared, the moans that had previously accompanied each contraction had turned to screams. And, I even think that I heard a growl or two in there. And, then when Rachel shouted at the top of her lungs, amidst her prayers to Jesus, ” I CAN’T DO THIS!” The busy nurses, paused for a second as they looked at each other, as if to say with their eyes, “Ok, she’s ready.”
Sure enough, after only being in that room for 30 mins or so, Rache gave a few pushes and… voila, the first Scotish Clancy… was born. It was pretty sweet.

Look at the baby’s cute lil’ feet! Awwww.

For those who like the stats, the baby was 8Lbs 3 oz, and born on Feb 10, 2007 at around 4:30 pm (Uk time). Quite a bit smaller than Aria, who weighed in at 9 lbs 11 oz. But, what she lacked in size, she made up for in cuteness. The pics don’t do her justice, but we thought we’d throw some up there for everyone anyway. We’ll keep you posted on how things are going. Rachel will be in the hospital for a couple of days, but nothing to worry about, everyone’s fine.

Here, Aria is reacting with a mixure of joy and concern. Joy that she’s with this baby, but concern that Kiera’s crying. Watching the two of them was adorable. Oh, and for anyone worried about the baby catching chick pox from Aria. Baby’s got mom’s immunity for 6 mos according to doc.

Oh, I forgot to mention Aria’s reaction to her new baby sister. Well, I was a little worried about the whole jealousy issue. I mean, I figured when Aria saw her mother with another little baby cuddled in those arms, that she would just try and crawl over the ‘intruder’ to get to mommy right? Her reaction couldn’t have been farther from that. She was just instantly in love. “Baby!” She cried while pointing to the baby, and then instantly started making the “give-me-that” noises while holding her arms out to the baby. I took her in my lap and helped Aria to hold her, and Aria was just in her glory. She just started kissing the baby’s head very gently while making her distinctive “MMMMWAA” kissing sounds. It was very adorable.
