My daughter and son-in-law wanted to do something to help stimulate our economy and this is what they came up with:
Meet their little stimulus package - Alexis Michelle (a.k.a. Lexie). She was born in a Michigan hospital on April 2, 2009 and weighs 6 pounds, 14 ounces and is 20 inches long. That picture was taken just seconds after she entered the world.
Her impact on the economy was immediate. Grandpa dashed to a local florist to buy flowers for Lexie's mom and Grandma made plans to hit the mall over the weekend.
Lexie is expected to have the biggest impact on local Michigan products. We all know kids have voracious appetites, and Lexie is expected to consume copious amounts of Kellogg's cereal, Cole's garlic bread, Faygo pop, Jiffy Mix muffins and pancakes, Koegel's hotdogs, Little Caesar's pizza and Better Made potato chips over the course of her lifetime.
And looking really far into the future, Lexie will definitely drive a G.M., Ford or Chrysler vehicle!
(Mother and child are doing well and are expected to come home today. Grandma is still on cloud nine, but expect her to share some more pictures soon!)
