“Labor” Day…

Well folks…the greatest thig has happened! Willow Marie Alexander was born 9/4/07 at 12:59 AM. She weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs. and 10 oz.s and was 21 1/2 inches long. WOW!

It all started on Sunday morning when I started throwing up every 2 hours. The OB on call prescribed something to settle my stomach but the damage had been done and I became overly dehydrated. The effect of this was my water breaking around 1o:30AM last Monday. That’s right…I went into labor on Labor Day…hehe.

Anyways..sevvvvvveral hours later Willow was born with me and Sam exhausted from a long day of hard labor. I have to say that I don’t think I will ever forget the pain BUT must conclude by mentioning that it was all well worth it. You see, Willow is simply the most precious thing I have ever encountered in my life.

We will post better pictures on the site soon but until then click on the link below to see the various pictures we are posting through our camera phone.
