Collis Utah James Baker is Born!

With great fanfare, we are happy to announce the birth of our boy: Collis Utah James Baker!

Collis’ first set of stats:

  • Born on Jan 27th at high noon 
  • Height: 21 inches
  • Weight: 7 lbs 12 oz

Annie and Collis are both healthy and doing well. Forest is thrilled!

Well into the “birth experience”, you never want to hear a labor nurse say: “Hey! Look at that. The epidural line was disconnected.” Well, that happened to Annie. Of course, she was amazing and handled everything with extraordinary aplomb.

Due to a big head that wouldn’t budge any further, ultimately, Collis had to come out via C-section. He got a little banged up trying to make his grand entrance, but he recovered nicely. Annie surprised all of the nurses with how quickly she was off the pain meds and moving about.

 About his name…

  • Collis –> Annie’s last name spelled phonetically
  • Utah –> Where we met — “People of the mountains”
  • James –> Forest’s father

 We look forward to settling in and continuing to bond with our little boy.

 Love,

 Forest & Annie
