The Winner...

This is Baby girl on Monday when we came home from the hospital! So sweet! She has dimples just like the other kids!

Okay, on to the winner, who doesn't even get a prize, my little brother Chris guessed what day Alexis would be born. Way to go! (nice prize right?! If you come see me I'll bake you cookies!) I appreciate everyone guessing before my due date, but she couldn't be willed out any earlier! I'm just grateful that all went well and it's a memory now.

Alexis Melin

Guest post by Proud Papa (again!) Jess:

I have to say - I won the lottery when it came to having kids. I wanted a boy - we got TJ. Then I wanted a girl - we got Summer. Then I wanted another boy - along came Matthew. To finish out the family and bring balance back to our universe I wanted to finish with another girl and today Kelli let me hit the powerball (even though it was 3:11 AM!). Alexis Melin was born after another quick and flawless delivery by my beautiful wife. We are very excited with the latest addition to the family. I will follow tradition and give you the stats as if I had just landed a nice fish: 7 lbs, 15 oz, 19 1/2 inches long. I guess you can't be 'tall' until you actually stand up for the first time!

Two of my beautiful girls.

I can't tell you how excited Summer is to be a big sister!

Here are the three doctors who made sure the whole thing was a success!
