Bienvenidos, Alexander Thomas!

We've had a busy week!  Please help us welcome our newest addition, Alexander Thomas!  
8lbs 4oz, 19.6 inches - just look at that face! 
This little bundle was born at 5:52am on September 20, 2013. 

He entered the world in his own style, not taking any cues from his big sister's birth. Such a handsome little guy, we are thrilled to finally meet him!

Such a happy, proud Daddy!

Big sister Gretchen was great, after being awakened in the middle of the night to come with us to the hospital, she slept well, had a fun day at home with Candy and then came to visit her baby brother. Lucky for her, Alex brought with him presents for her - and to sweeten the deal, they were Dora-themed presents!

A mix of nervous and curiosity, she has been great and is already making a fantastic big sister!

Welcome to the newest porteño, a perfect addition to our little family!  We cannot wait to get you home and begin life as a family of four!

And now we get to start the paperwork process to make you official! (More on that to come...)


  1. Congratulations Gill Family! Wonderful news, and Alexander is such a cutie!

  2. Very exciting, looking forward to meeting the last Gill....hopefully he won't already be walking! Great pictures.

  3. Sorry we have been so behind with reading your blog -- just now catching up! Of course, congratulations and much love to all of you from the two of us :)
