Baby Kooger

I had one of the most amazing nights ever. It's currently on facebook so I think I can talk about it now:) Ali and Joel are good friends of mine who had their first baby last night. I was allowed to take pictures immediately after the baby was born and it was soooo emotional. I couldn't sleep afterwards. Ali did the best job ever. She pushed out a 9lb 7oz baby boy with a HUGE head. I don't know where she was hiding all that baby in that belly of hers.
Caden Theodore Kooger (I love his name!!) was born at 11:57pm and was immediately sucking his thumb and hand. Most of Ali and Joel's family were ready, waiting, and eager to celebrate in the good news. So cute. So precious. Congratulations!!

There are a ton more pictures but I should probably let them see them first:)

Just seconds old, mom and dad get their first glance at their big beautiful baby boy.

Koen will now have a little buddy to play with! Congratulations Joel and Ali!!!
