Xander arrives! February 12th @ 9:20pm


Okay so I know you are all wanting more details.. but I seriously feel like a truck just ran over my "downstairs" and am supposed to be on bedrest for the next few days.. so needless to say details of my birth story will have to wait for a later date.. let me tell you- its a good one!! Not much to it, but all I can say is: TWO HOUR LABOR!! (I know, you all hate me, but NO exhaggeration there!) I seriously am still boggled by how smooth and quick this labor was.. its insane. Anyhow- just want to let everyone know Xander is absolutely PRECIOUS and beautiful.. and I can't get enough of him.. he is truly our favorite blessing from Heavenly Father (and he has given us a TON of them). We love you Xander!


PS- i of course have lots more pics that you will get to see as soon as I am able.

Of course I hate you. But you better have at least felt pain or that's just plain unfair. I am very happy for you that it went so smoothly. Your nest labor could be like 20 minutes. I told you that God made you a birthing woman. I'm sure you are just loving every minute with Xander. What a cutie! But I need to see more pics so I can decide who he looks like. Sorry your mom missed it! Can't wait to meet him! Congrats to both you and Travis.

Congratulations! Sounds like he was pretty excited to get here! I'm glad it went so well. Good luck with those sleepless nights. It is so worth it just to hold him though.
