Happy Halloween!

Here is our very unhappy hot dog... his Aunt Calah and Uncle Christopher bought him his costume. How funny is that?

William Week Two

Here is the photo I took of William yesterday on his two week birthday. I posted the photo from week one below it to compare.

More William

Jonathan obliged me the other day and took some posed pictures with William. These were all taken last Tuesday (the 16th) when he was one week old. Of course, William wasn't so willing to cooperate and ended up peeing all over Jonathan, the floor, and the we put his diaper back on after that, but I did manage to snap a couple shots where he's not screaming or peeing!!

This is our mobile that was given to us by our friend Vanessa. I just love it.

I've decided to take a picture of William every week for the first year of his life. I haven't decided yet if I'll always post them, but I think it'll be interesting. You wouldn't think that much would change from one week to the next, but between this picture (also taken at one week on the 16th), and this past Monday (almost one week later), he had gained one pound and grown two inches. I'll post his two week picture later this evening. I haven't compared them yet myself, so I'm excited to see if I can tell a difference!

Let me try this again....

OK, here is William with my mom and dad...PROUD grandparents!! I must say, that if I really look at William, I can concede that he does look a little like a garden gnome without the beard, but what can I say - I still think he's beautiful!

And here are my two boys taking a nap....


OK, I apologize for the last post. Many of you have let me know that the photos are not coming up, and as bad timing goes, our internet hasn't been working, so I haven't been able to fix it. I am back on today, so I hope to have the problem remedied soon. I also have more pictures to post....of William of course, but hey, that's ok right?

William Gatlin Alexander

OK. I will of course be taking many many more photos when we get home (poor kid), but here are a couple of our newest addition. Our son William was born October 9th at 5:09 pm. He weighed 7 pounds 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. We are all happy, healthy, and going home tomorrow. Yea!! Wish us luck...I'm sure we will need it!

Proud papa...and we have also detected a hint of red in William's hair, so he's already taking after his dad in at least one way!

Pregnancy Update

OK, so here are the maternity picture I've been promising some of you (Amy, Heather), and for our friends and family who we haven't seen in awhile, you can see my enormous belly button. (If you're wondering about the sudden flurry of blogging, I have been put on bed rest, so I have had a lot of time to work on pictures the past couple days.) These were taken this week (week 39), so they are pretty much as big as I'm going to get. It's funny because I have posted a few maternity photo sessions and they all had women with their bare bellies, but I tell you, I agonized over putting pictures of myself with my bare belly showing up for some reason. I finally just decided to do it as I've done it to the other women, although I must say, it's a lot harder when it's yourself!! My due date is this coming Monday (October 8th) so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We are very nervous and excited!!
