It's official. My life has been forever altered.

At 02:49 a.m. on October 5th, 2006, my wife and I welcomed into the world our daughter, Alexandra Emery Ruth Grant. Delivered by Caesarian Section at 37 weeks, she weighed in at 7 lbs. and 14.9 ounces and measured 21.5 inches long. Both mom and daughter are doing well. If all goes well, both will be home by Sunday. Here's a picture of our little "Alex". More to be posted (check Flickr) as time permits.

Congratulations to you both! And what a BEAUTIFUL name! I love her so much already and I can't wait to hold her in my arms. I can already see those Grant genes are taking over since she is such a lengthy baby! And she has such cute rosy 'Tammy' cheeks.

I hope Tammy is recovering well and I can't wait to see you all!

Love Auntie Kim

Congratulations!!!! And Good Luck!!

Remember to sleep when Alexandra sleeps.

And take lots of pictures. They grow up incredibly fast. Loren will be 1 year old next month, and I cannot believe it has already been a year.
