Bastian Alexander was born at 4:28pm EST (US). He was born by caesarean section after many hours of fruitless labor. And no wonder, because Bastian weighed 9 pounds 8.5 ounces!
Bastian and Sandykidd are both doing fine; SK will be a while recovering but should be getting bored of the hospital by noon tomorrow.
Thank you everyone for the wellwishes!
