Beck Xavier Earnest-McClelland
It's a boy! Beck made his grand entrance at 11:56 p.m. last night after more than 48 hours of labor, bringing smiles to the faces of his exhausted parents, Maddie Earnest and Jason McClelland. In the waiting room party were Susan and Hugh Earnest (Maddie's mom and dad), Jo and Randy Wimer (Jason's mom and step-dad), Angela Melson, Amanda Doyle and me. The incomparable Dr. Teresa Knight delivered the little marathoner at Missouri Baptist.

I can just imagine 48 hours of Maddie screaming: "Oh MAH GAWD, Y'ALL!"
Congratulations to the new parents. Let's try to book Beck as a guest on the next Free Candy...

Hey, Tom Weber was just in Chennai! We talked all about it at Free Candy...seems he freaked people out by actually swimming in the ocean, while others just stared.

Shannon and Jason I am so excited for the both of you. Tell Beck that I said "Welcome to St. Louis" and get ready to be known as the "Cutest Kid on the Block!"

Congrats, Maddie & Jason! And a BOY, despite all the predictions to the contrary. Maddie, you deserve some type of award for conquering 48 hours of labor. Eesh! Well, you can just hold it over Beck's head for the rest of his life. Hope to see you guys and meet the Beck boy soon! Rest up,
