It's the Final Countdown...

13 days to go until Baby Alexander will be making his appearance. Less then two weeks and we will be a family of five. It all seems to have taken such a long time and yet, here we are, more than ready.

The tiny blue blankets are folded under the bassinet and the itty bitty socks are balled up and ready for tiny little toes. The girls are practicing their diaper changing skills (haha) and arguing over who will get to hold him first. Soon, we will be bringing home our little boy and baby brother.

In an attempt to make things more interesting, I wanted to share some photos of our Princesses shortly after birth AND have a little contest. First, our little girls.

Izabel, born in February 2006. She weighed 6 pounds and 14 ounces, and was 18.5 inches long.

Welcome Emily Rose
Emily, born in November 2007. She weighed 7 pounds and 1 ounce, and was 18.75 inches long.

And now, for the contest. We already know, unless Alexander changes his mind, that we will be delivering on the 9th. The question is, how much do you think Alexander will weigh and measure? Pounds, Ounces and Inches. Take a guess! =)
