Topeka's first baby of 2009 was just upholding family tradition, you might say!

Alex Joseph Meyer was born at 12:27 am January 1st at Stormont-Vail HealthCare.

Alex is the third member of his father's family to be born on New Year's Day. Keeping up the holiday theme, mom was born on Christmas Day.

The Meyer's had actually been to the hospital earlier Thursday, but they were sent home around lunch time. On the way home they decided to stop for a sandwich. Dad Eric says he was paying when he turned around and his wife wasn't there. He set the food on the table and his cell phone rang - she was telling him her water had broken, and it was back off to the hospital to welcome Alex into the world!

Alex tipped the scales at seven pounds three ounces and measured 20 and three-quarters inches.
