Second child arrives

Though I was months late in posting about Presley James being born, I’m a little more on top of this bit of news.

Kendall and I proud to announce we have a new member of the family (sorry, I don’t think I ever posted that we were expecting our second child, but the important thing is we were and he’s here).

Kolten Archer Vogts arrived at 6:54 a.m., Feb. 17. He weighed in at 9 pounds and is 20 inches long. He’s got a head full of hair, and, as is to be expected, he is already an eater. He and his mom are doing great!

Big sister Presley is excited, and we are all so excited to have him as part of the family! He is named after Kolten Wong, the second baseman for our St. Louis Cardinals.

Also, his middle name comes from one of Kendall and I’s favorite television shows . . . “Archer,” which is an animated sitcom that is hilarious. If you haven’t seen it, check it out.

I know I wrote a longer post after Presley was born, but I also had more to say since I took so very long to post anything. At least I’m getting this announcement out sooner, right?

Hopefully, I will be sharing more updates with some level of frequency. If not, Kendall is good about updating Facebook. If I’m not giving you your Kolten fix, check there.

Much love!
