On Tuesday the 5th of February Ben & Sam’s little guy was born. He was 8lbs 9oz and 20 inches long. I hadn’t planned on seeing him until his blessing but on Tuesday when I got off work I really felt like maybe I should make a “quick” trip to Preston Idaho and back the same night. I had to cancel Katie’s Piano lesson, Jenna’s tumbling, & Katie would have to miss Young Women’s. Isaac was upset and didn’t want to to anywhere, that’s very normal for him. I called our neighbor and she was awesome enough to let Isaac come and play with her son Gavin until David got home. So at 4:00PM me and the girls took off for Preston. Only Stacy and my mom knew we were coming Ben & Sam were sure we couldn’t drive that far on a week night and were too busy. We arrived at the hospital at about 6:30 and right as we went to knock on their door I received a text message from Ben with a picture of Alex on it. Then we opened the door and I think they were surprised to see us.
I was really excited to be able to be there for their first baby born. Now I’ve only missed when Bryan was born and I was too far away to do anything about that one. I got to hold baby Alexander and love on him for a while and all the girls took a turn holding him as well. He sure is cute! It was worth the 2.5 hours up and 2.5 hours back in one night. I can’t wait until we get to go to Idaho again and see him.
Congratulations Benjamin & Samantha!!
