We manage the pregnancy at the Lisa Ross
Birth and Women's Center, although because of complications we had to
deliver at the hospital. We also hired a doula to assist with the birth:
McLaughlin. You may ask "What's a doula?"
This should help.
Alex immediately after birth
His favorite place to sleep
Yes, he sleeps a lot.
Born, apparently, to be a Pirates fan.
With his paternal great-grandmother
My two favorite guys. Aren't they cute?
The puppies seem to tolerate him fairly well
Alex on the move
He's taken to devouring books
With his maternal great-grandmother
Visiting his great-grandfather's grave
With his other great-grandfather
Yes, sleeping again
Still getting along with the puppies
And sleeping again
Alex at six months, one week
Alex at about 14 months, looking at you.

Such tolerant puppies...
Go on; try to resist me.
Alex and his daddy
He likes to pretend it's the TV remote
