Claire's First Pics

More pictures at

Baby Claire is here!

Please welcome Team Thompson's latest, Claire Marie. Delivery was remarkably smooth and Mommy and baby are doing great (Daddy is a little tired). Everyone will be home later today (Sunday) hopefully. Jay was excited to meet her in the hospital and has been walking around the house wondering where the "baby" is.

Stats for the stats crazy:

  • Born Saturday, October 6, 2007 at 1:25pm at Stanford's Lucile Packard Children's hospital

  • 8 lbs, 7 oz

  • 19 3/4 in

  • Blissfully short 10.5 hours start to finish

  • Named after Alysia's grandmother

  • Middle name is traditional in Alysia's family

Video and pics to follow.

Jay Feeds Himself...

Well, sort of, but Alysia was encouraging.
