We had our first 'forgot to cover his manly parts when we were changing him and he peed all over me' moment today. It was pretty hysterical! He's so cute.

We also gave him his first at home bath yesterday. Which was fun, but mostly unnecessary. Being a new born he isn't really getting 'dirty' too much yet.

It amazes the both of us to no end how swaddling, something they've be doing for century upon century, really works. It just calms him down so much, which is totally awesome!

Being a parent? 10 out of 10 so far!

Alexander Carlton Rezsnyak

The story: Stephanie's water broke at 1130 Friday night as we were brushing our teeth after a long and, for us, late night. Being cautious we called the doctor, she said that it probably wasn't the bag of waters, but to monitor closely to be sure. Stephanie had her first mild contraction at 1255, they were occurring about once every 20-25 mins. After about an hour and a half of that we, or rather, she decided it was time to go! We checked in at Crouse Hospital at 245, the preliminary check in triage said that she was 4cm, which seemed pretty awesome to me. We now had confirmation that she was most certainly in labor. Contractions came and went with more frequency and more intensity as time passed. At about six o'clock or so Stephanie had dilated to 7-8cm! Things were progressing nicely. Then out of the blue, and without warning around 630-645 she felt like she had to push! Diane, her mother and newly crowned GRANDmother, told me that this phase of labor could last anywhere from one to four hours OR MORE. I was crushed, thinking that my wife would have to go through such agony for so long, little did I know that she, or perhaps more accurately God the Sovereign had very different plans.

On September 19th 2009 Alexander Carlton Rezsnyak joined the world of the breathing at 703am! Weighing in at 7lbs. 3oz. and 20 inches tall! Both he and his mother are doing phenomenal. We could not have ever expected the birth to have gone nearly as awesome as it did. God has blessed us so greatly! Praise the LORD!

Two Years Ago...

we were joined together in Holy Matrimony. With Love in our hearts, God brought us together, binding us for as long as we both shall live. Certainly our journey has just begun, and we have a lot left to learn. But with our faces turn toward our Father we can know, how ever many years we have left together, each day will get better and better.
