Baby Alex

Leslie gave birth to Alexander Michael Rolling today at 3:19pm. He’s 9 pounds 13 ounces! Leslie gave birth with no drugs at all, and I’m really proud of her. She was sometimes smiling and even joking right up until the end of the pushing! She will write more about the birth here when she gets out of the hospital. We’ll need a couple of days to analyze the baby pool and figure out who got closest!

I will say that this baby is surprisingly long for a newborn and has very long fingers and toes. He’s a very different baby from Olivia, who was only 5 pounds 4 ounces when she joined our family.

  3. Congratulations!!! Wow, what a big boy he is. So glad Leslie’s desires were fulfilled in having the kind of birth she had hoped for and all are healthy. Love the name too. Praising God today for the good news and for your newest addition. Blessings to your family.

  4. Welcome, Alexander Michael, and how appropriate is your birthday — right between mama’s Canada Day and papa’s 4th of July. Congratulations Leslie, Chris and big sis, Olivia. We do, indeed, serve an awesome God!
