An Heir to the Throne

On May 14th, at 3:30ish in the morning the Porter family welcomed Daxton Lyle Porter into our eternal family!
The Porter name will live on.
Daxton is Dave and Jessica's first baby together, and SIXTH in their family! Dave has two of the sweetest little girls and jess has three rockin little peeps of her own! He's the "ours" in their "yours, mine and ours."
Here's Daxton's story...
He was actually born on his due date! go figure, jess had been trying to get him here for a solid two weeks but to no avail. Poor chick ;( But finally, her doc give her the thumbs up to be induced on the 13th... the hospital however had other ideas and made her wait all day for a room. Finally, at 4 o'clock pm a room was ready and they were on their way. And so was I. Down the mountain we flow with all my kiddos in tow! By midnight her water broke and things started to really get cookin'. By 2:30am my mom calls to wake up Yaya and me to head on down to the hospital. By the time we hit the freeway, it was too late. Daxton had roared into this life!
There's a song my dad and mom use to sing to dave, it went a little like this...
"slow down, your moving too fast,
you got to make the moment last,"
I think this little diddy will continue on with this little guy!
We love you Daxton!
Know my little buddie you are loved more than all the stars in the sky, you are valued more than the gems of the earth, you are a prince among princes, and you are all ours!
Love you buddie,
aunt annie

Hey there, my friend! That's so exciting for David and the entire Porter family. The Curnutts are worried about the future of their name--only girls over here. I enjoy "seeing" you and your family and love reading what you write! By the way, glad you got your coke on your birthday--you make me laugh!
