Baby West #4 is here

Well is has been a couple of weeks since the birth, so I thought pictures on the somewhat neglected blog are in order. Our fourth child, Jefferson, was born on Aug 23, 2011 at 1:40am. At birth he was 8 lbs. 15 oz. and 21 inches long. He was born at home in a birthing tub without complication. It was nice not to have to worry about driving to the hospital and messing with car seats and such. Plus, our daughter, Allie was able to see the birth, something that might not have panned out otherwise. Now on to the pictures…

Here is the birth tub before while I was filling it up. Nothing too technical--just a hose hooked up the the shower.P1130090 (Copy)

Jen is now in the birth tub. The birth is imminent.P1130105 (Copy)

We then had a birthday celebration for Jefferson. Not sure why Jack is missing his shirt…but I guess the draw of cake was too strong.P1130306 (Copy)

A family picture at last. Allie is true to form.4 - West Family 1

Dunking Booth (Aug 2010)

We went to the WKU football and sports extravaganza right after we moved here last year. They had a dunking booth that Allie and Jack wanted to try out. Of course, they couldn't quite get the velocity needed to move the dunk arm, so Allie came up with her own way to "get the dunk."
