Derek James Bender is Born!
Derek James Bender was born on January 19th, 2014 at approximately 9:30 AM at St. Joseph's Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan to Rachel and Mike Bender. He was 6 lbs, 9 oz.. It was a cold and snowy wintry day. They brought him home from the hospital on January 21st. Thus far, he is sleeping a lot during the day, but likes to fuss and keep his parents up by night. I guess he likes the midnight shift so far.
Derek was Baptized in the late service at St John's Lutheran Church in Waltz, MI on Sunday, February 2nd, 2014. Derek's Uncle Doug is the God Father and Derek's Aunt Lindsey is the God Mother.
