Welcome baby James Liam!

Brittany and Mike welcomed their little boy James on Sept 2nd. She went into labor on Labor Day so she says her son has a real sense of humor. She was one week past her due date and apparently she and Mike gave baby James a "talkin' to" the night before and explained how it would be really nice if he decided to come out and how it would even be funny to be born on Labor Day. Well, I guess the womb listens, because the next day contractions started! Little James wasn't born on Labor Day though, no siree, because Brittany had a 31 hour labor. She did it! Long labors can be very difficult but she had a lot of support from Mike and from her mother who had all five of her children naturally. Breastfeeding has been a piece of cake!!

Congratulations Brittany and Mike!

Welcome baby Sariah!!

I just got the good news from Frank that baby Sariah is here! Here are his words: "Saraiah Marie was born on September 6 at 5:50 am, She weighed 8 lbs. 1 oz. and she was 19 1/2 inches long. Both baby and momma are doing great! I also want to mention how proud I am of my wife Tavi, she labored for about 27 hours without using any artificial induction methods and no drugs at all, 100% natural! San Antonio Hospital respected our wishes according to our birth plan and the nurses were great. Another thing I want to mention im proud of is that Saraiah was smiling before she was 24 hour old. Thank you to everybody who has been praying for us and to those who have showered our baby with gifts. God Bless"

Congratulations Tavi and Frank! She's beautiful!
