Our new niece

So Keith's brother Ian and his wife Laura welcomed their newest daughter to their family on Mother's Day. She's a tiny little thing - she was born at 28 weeks and weighed in at 2 lbs. 1 oz. We went up to see her and Laura yesterday (and Ian and the kids too). I have never seen a baby that tiny before. But she's got some spunk to her - she had already pulled out her intubation tube all by herself. The doctors say that she's doing fine right now and they'll just have to keep watching her. Laura seemed to be doing good as well. We're so happy for them. Here's a little clip of their new baby. Look at how her hand compares to Ian's fingernail, and the size of the pacifier compared to her little tummy.

P.S. I didn't put her name because, when we left, Ian and Laura still weren't decided on a name for sure. But they were thinking Sofia Rose. How pretty!
