Alex's Room

Because Alex came a little later than expected we were able to have his room fully painted and decorated by the time he arrived. Brandon did most of the painting and did a great job. We went a little crazy with the dinosaur theme but it turned out great.


The finished product...


After 41 weeks of pregnancy Alex is finally here! On Saturday, May 8th Brandon and I went to the hospital so that I could be induced. We got the call at about 6 am. Shortly after our arrival my water was broken and things were underway. However, Alex still took his time and didn't arrive until the next morning, May 9th at 1:37 am. Things couldn't move too quickly because Alex's heartrate kept dropping and I had to be on oxygen most of the day. It turned out that the cord was wrapped around his neck two times. Luckily the delivery went great and Alex was just fine. He weighed in at 7 lb 3 oz and was 21 inches long. The day was extra special because it was mother's day and it also happened to be our three year anniversary. It is definitely a day we won't soon forget. So far Alex has been a perfect baby.
