And Melanie and Paul's baby Peyton Melia Towers on Chris's side.
While we love them both, Peyton (the later of the two) has quite the arrival story. Melanie was originally due on June 26 and recently had her due date moved to June 19. She lives in California with her husband and her wonderful mother-in-law Debbie. Melanie and Debbie came to visit Mesa for a family baby shower on Saturday May 30. We woke up to a phone call Sunday morning from Chris's mom at 7:30 saying letting us know that Melanie's water broke at 2:30 am at her brother Clint's house in Tempe. Needless to say, they rushed her to a hospital and Paul was on the first flight here. Having Peyton born here was such an awesome experience. And while I feel horrible for the panic and stress it put on Melanie and Paul, the family members here were so blessed to be able to be a part of it all and to be able to be there for it. She is a beautiful little baby and we have already fallen in love with her. So at the expense of Paul and Melanie's sanity, we would like to say thank you for letting us all meet baby Peyton earlier than any of us expected!
