Welcome Xander

Xander Kai Reiter-Belcher was born on December 10th 2009 at 1045 a.m. His wt was 8.7 pounds and 21 inches long. Head circ. was 14.5. His Apgar scores were 9 and 9 and that was after 30 hours of labor six of which she was at a 10 and complete, but the Doctor tended to another family whose baby became stressed right when we were going to start pushing. We understand and was told the baby was fine, but of course it was nerve racking waiting to push when the baby's head was already crowning. The first thing we noticed was he had dark hair. A bit of a surprise, but it may still lighten up. If not Cyndi loves dark hair. Obviously eye color is to soon to know for sure, but we are hoping for blue eyes. Sorry it took awhile to get pics updated hopefully you will be able to catch up.

Thank you to all our friends, and family for the loving support. Please just let us know if you would like to come meet our new little one. We don't take him out much but you are always welcome to our home if you are in the area.

We feel forever blessed. Still a bit stressed, but FOREVER BLESSED.
Our family is one step closer to being complete. Xander one day will to be a big brother.
