Our little man

Alexander John was born yesterday, 5/15/12 at 9:12 am. He weighed 6lbs, 3oz and was 19 inches long. I promise he's happier than he looks in these photos.



The c-section wasn't super fun but it didn't last long. I will always remember the anesthesiologist lowering the surgical screen so I could see a little, cheesy hand sticking up from out of my body. I heard the doctors say "He's got some meat on his bones!" and knew we didn't need to worry. He needed a bit of oxygen for just a moment right after birth, but other than that he's been perfectly healthy.

I am recovering well and will be going home on Friday. I hope to give you more details soon.
