HARTFORD--Yesterday we told you about the newest member of the Fox CT family.

Well we have our first video of Andon Allan, and some new info for you today, straight from new mom Rachel Frank's mouth!

She posted the following on her Facebook page about her Christmas miracle:

rachel's baby 2On 12/23 at 1:08 am after 30+ hours of labor I got to meet my son Andon Allan! My big boy weighed in at 8 pounds, 1 ounce, and is 19 inches. And I love him with every cell in my body.

It wasn't long after we said "I do" that Aram and I decided to embark on the biggest life adventure of all. Being parents.

We giggled after reading the pregnancy test. It didn't seem real, but five additional tests confirmed our lives would change forever.

Were we having a child or a fruit salad? Websites compared our growing baby to a poppy seed and a kumquat (what the heck is that??). At 15 weeks, it was time to find out if our little apple was a he or a she. With the rapid weight gain, everyone was convinced the baby’s room would get painted pink. They were wrong (except Aram and his grandmother). I just needed to slow down with the pizza...Maybe next year.

Baby boy was a pleasure to carry all 39 weeks. He never made mommy sick. imagejpeg_0And despite his natural affinity for kung fu, he didn't damage any vital organs. Only one problem…with my constant stuffy nose Aram did have to cope with sleeping next to “Darth Vader.”

We're naming our baby boy Andon Allan. The initials AA are a tradition in Aram’s family. Andon means “priceless” and Allan is the first name of my grandfather, Aram’s dad and also my dad’s middle name.

Welcome Andon. We feel overwhelmingly excited and lucky to be your parents and guide you through this wild world.
