Claire is very honored to share her birthday month with Grandma Rice, but we are VERY happy they don't share the same birthday day.
A year ago today began all the baby drama. I went in for my routine 7 month check up and was in total shock when the doctor said he was sending me to the hospital for test and if he didn't like the results I was giving birth immediately. I remember looking at him like he was crazy and telling him I was only 26 weeks and that wasn't an option. Thankfully I was able to keep Claire in 10 more days and get steroid shots to help her tiny lungs develop. It was all very scary! Here's hoping my mom has a much less stressful birthday this year!!!! We wish we could be there to celebrate with you :)
