After many hours of labor and a big scare it was decided that a c-section was the only way our daughter was going to come out. So I was rushed into the OR and the c-section had begun.
At 5:25 pm on Wednesday, December 17, 2009 our daughter, Alexa Elisabeth Mattoon was born. She weighed 8lbs., 5 oz and was 20 3/4 inches long. She was born with daddy's blue eyes and mommy's hair color! Instantly she was sucking her thumb! This picture was taken in the OR just minutes after being cleaned up!
