After a VERY long week in NICU, Alek got released today! Yay!! He is doing very good and seems very relaxed in his new home. :) His dad bought him a new bouncer today with a bright blue light, and I think it just became our new best friend as well as his!! haha! Anyway, thanks for the all the prayer! Iam so glad he is home with us and healthy!

Alek is being held in NICU because isnt keeping anything down. He has us worried. They are doing some tests on him to make sure there is nothing serious going on. Please keep him in your prayers! We will try and keep this updated as much as we can, but we are staying in the hospital with him right now and want to be by Alek.

Steffany and I would like to introduce the newest member of the family. Alek James was born at 2153 hours local and weighted in at 7 lbs and 15.3 ounces, 21 inches and a 13.5 inch head. Mommy and baby are doing well, and for those who are interested mommy was in labor for 24 hours and delivered baby Alek in start to finish pushing..... 5 minutes. Way to go mommy. More to come as we get updates.

So the Doctor said that if he doesnt come on his own by Thursday, they are inducing me Thursday night at 7pm. Iam full-term so everything should be fine. We are excited...and...a little nervous. They are estimating him to be about 9+ lbs. Yippie for me. :) So either way, baby Alek will be here no later than Friday the 22nd. We will keep everyone updated!

So most of these pictures are from different times, but I figured I would post some pictures of around the island and some of the fun things we have done! There is always something to do here and I absolutly love the island ( when CJ isnt stuck at work for 14+ hours..and is actually able to get a weekend off to go enjoy the island). :)

So summer has begun and Okinawa days are starting to get hot, so since we had the first weekend off in awhile we decided to get out the grill and spend some time as a family. Jonathan and CJ grilled up some steaks and Steffany took care off the sides. Now for the relaxing portion of the sub-tropical island that controls our life. Happy mothers day to Steffany and we are all anxious for the arrival of our newest member of the family, Alek.

So we decided to add to our little family. CJ has Ricky, who is 5....I have Jonathan, who is 6, and now we have baby Alek ( due May 22nd). So we officially have " Yours, mine, and ours..." ALL BOYS! Iam out numbered! We planned this so I would not be 9 months pregnant during the HOT summer months of Okinawa. So, Iam now 38 weeks and and we are all anxiously waiting for this little guy to make his appearance! As you can see from the pictures...Iam clearly growing like a watermelon! :)

Well for the first time in our lives we were able to realize why we act the way we do. We flew in for the Red Flag exercise and it was a Kellar family reunion. For the first time I was able to meet my mother and father-in-law and we had an awesome time. I don't think that I have ever been so drunk in my life.... Steffany was cruising the sober highway and because she was she has the best memories of how crazy out of control the family and I got. I have to say with this family you have to be on your toes and done with the last beer you had in your hand. However I have met some of the best in-laws that anyone can ever ask for and I am sincerely proud to be part of this family. I love you guys.....

So after being in the Air Force for 6 years I finally went to one of those damn balls. Steffany was absolutly stunning and the dress was almost the one thing we were missing walking out the door. Ok those with the bad minds let me clarify... IT WAS SHIPPED FROM THE STATES!!! Anyhow the dinner was amazing and she was able to make it a few dances before our latest news slowed her down a bit. Steffany and I had just found out that there was a little addition to the family tree on the way.

So this day 6 years ago, Jonathan was brought into this world!! He is growing up so fast. He is now in kindegarten, about to be in 1st grade. We all got together and celebrated his 6th birthday at beautiful Torri Beach here in Okinawa. After a fun baseball game, all of his closest friends came to eat hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill, eat birthday cake, and play in the sun with him! It was so much fun.
