courtesy of daniel’s sister, ashley, who has already taken and emailed pictures as a good aunt should do, here is your first blog glimpse of alexandra “alex” joy fox, born via c-section at 2:32pm on wednesday, june 25, 2008. after 19 hours of labor including three hours of pushing, we decided that it just wasn’t going to work to push out all 10 pounds, 5 ounces and 21 1/2 inches of her. yep, we have ourselves a big girl! she’s gorgeous, and sweet and a pretty good eater, and i’m sure she’ll figure out the sleeping thing eventually, right?
