Happy Birthday Alec!

Fifteen years ago, today. There you were.

I was really big!



Because you were really big! 10 lbs 1 oz and 23 1/2 inches.

When the doctor finally got you out, he said, "any kid this big should be named Thor!"

We went with Alec Kristian.

You kept growing.
You became a big brother.

And you were a happy guy.



Speaking of happy... gaming is your thang!



We're so glad you were born!





Thanks for being you.

Dear Alec, This is a girl named Ruby. What did you get today at your birthday?

Ruby (and her mom Lisa - in Oregon)

I am such a dork! Of course I meant to write your tribute to Alec, not Alex. It's just that the "x" is right next to the "c"....and I'm way more used to ending Ale with an "x" than a "c". Sorry!!! Bad typo, bad!
