Apollo

My nephew, Apollo, was born Saturday at 5:02 pm. After a 12 hour drive, we were able to make it to Alabama shortly before it was time to go to the hospital. I was able to be there with my sister for the whole labor and delivery. There were a few complications but both mother and baby are doing great. Apollo weighed 7 pounds and 15 ounces (3.6 kilograms).

Welcome to the world little Apollo.


Here is Apollo on the scale.

Jessica,
How truly blessed you were to be there for that special event! And Apollo is blessed to have you for an Aunt! He is beautiful. THanks for sharing.

It must have been an experience of a life time, watching the whole delivery process. The baby is big and very cute, with rosy cheeks.

Oh Jessica you came south for the birth of a baby! How wonderful. What a blessing for the whole family. welcome Baby Apollo! (what a cool name, too.) PS I'm in the Detroit airport right now as we speak, headed home to the U.P. Wondering if you're anywhere near here now.
