Alexander Grant Egley

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!!

  1. I love that you put the pictures of Dad's three name sakes on the bottom. But it tares at my heart that Gabe's not with us now. is it possiable to feel heart broken and happy and proud about your grandchildren at the same time? I guess it is because that's how I felt when I saw these pictures.
    Love you my daughter.
