Special Delivery!

Alexander Joseph Alton has arrived!!! He was 20.5 inches long and 7 lb 11oz at birth!

Saturday afternoon Megan started having contractions pretty hard just before 2 pm. We timed them and saw that they were around 5 minutes apart and 1 minute long. After about an hour of that we called the doc and he said to go get checked out... next thing we know the nurse calls Dr. Sanders and says Megan's going so fast going natural might be her only option. The doctor soon arrived and at 4:46 BOOM!! Out came baby Alex. After that mom and Alexander got cleaned up and we got to take some pics!!! We are so excited to have this little angel in our home!

Alex's first kiss came from his mom!

Later Mom caught me having a talk with the little guy.

Thanks so much to everyone who has helped in so many ways and provided help in the way of diapers and outfits and other helpful items. And most of all CONGRATS MOM!! She did a great job!
