How's this for a Birthday present?

Today is my birthday, and look what the DD presented me with!! Westly Alexander! It was a long 24 hours, and she pushed for just over 3 hours before we all decided that was enough work~ she had a cesarean section at 1:06 am this morning. So, I am sorry she worked so hard and is fatiqued and had her second major surgery in 3 months- but he sure does make me smile!

Luckily, Alex has good pain coverage, and is surrounded by friends and family, and all is well. Can't ask for a better Birthday present than that!
