Welcome Noah Alexander

Noah Alexander Kol joined our family November 18, 2008 at 1:57pm he weighed 7lbs 12oz and was 21 inches long.

He was not suppose to arrive for another 3 weeks but he decided that he was ready. I of course was just fine with that. I was so done being pregnant. This labor was so much better then with Ashton. It was much faster and my epidural actually worked, well the second one did any ways.

We had one little scare when I was in labor Noah had a bowel movement while he was inside so they had to have team of people there when he was born to put a tube down his throat and make sure they got all the mecconium out of him. All turned out great Noah was just fine.

Here he is fresh from his bath. I love all his dark hair.

It has been a much easier adjustment bringing Noah home than it was when we brought Ashton home. When you bring the first one home your lives change totally and completely, when you bring a second child home he just seems to blend in. Maybe its because I have felt so much better than I did with Ashton.
It is amazing how much you forget. The first few diapers I changed I felt like such a novice, he is just so small I am use to changing Ashtons diapers.

It has been so much fun watching Ashton interact with Noah. I wasn't sure how he would feel or what he would do with another person in the house. He has been awesome. It is so cute he will come up to him and pat his head and give him a kiss. If he is fussing he will try to give him a Binky. I am so excited to watch these boys grow up together.
