Meet Emma :)

Emma (Middle Name still to be decided) Schwaberow was born 3/14/2008 at 7:43pm. She weighs 2lbs 12 oz and is 15.5 inches long. Emma is doing great! She is definitely small, but she came off oxygen entirely this morning and> is working on growing and staying warm in the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit). I feel pretty good, the birth went well and as scary as it was for her to come so early, we're really happy that she stayed inside as long as> she did and we're really happy with how she's doing so far. We obviously have a LONG road ahead of us, but we're hopeful that it will be a smooth one. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, we continue to appreciate them.

Congratulations from the Evans family! Just had brunch with Kelly and Tracy (and boyfriends) and they are excited for you as well. Hope you and the baby are doing as well as you look in the pictures. Can't believe a baby that small has hair already, and those long fingers - you may have a concert pianist in the family someday! Tell "grandpa and grandma" Jackson congrats, too.
