This photo was taken on Monday, July 6th, the day Nichole was to be induced.
Sunday was a “miracle day” for our family. I had the privilege of witnessing the birth of Alec James, our first grandson. Nichole and Patrick now have a sweet baby boy. He was due on June 28th but wanted to capture everyone’s attention by making a much anticipated grand entrance one week late.
Alec was born at 8:16pm and weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces and was 20 inches long. He is a beautiful baby. I will never get over the miracle that the birth of a baby is. It is just amazing to me how much work it is for the mother and those who support her. It’s stressful because everyone is nervous and hoping for a very favorable outcome. Nichole was so prepared and did an amazing job. She had 3 hours of very intense pushing. Patrick also did a great job. He was very calm and very supportive to Nichole. Alec is very lucky to have such wonderful, attentive parents.
