Khaleb Cruz


Audrey and Lukis Cruz did not have time to make it to the birth center early Sunday morning! The midwife received a phone call at 12:49 am that Audrey was beginning to contract and they thought it may be time to come in. Exactly FIVE minutes later that very same midwife got a phone call reporting that the baby had already been born!! (The billboard at the Whitten Inn, of Taos, is wrong about the 4:00 am.) Khaleb Cruz was welcomed into the world by his Father. Lukis did an amazing job catching his, not so small, son! He weighed 9 lbs 9 ozs, but apparently his weight was no deterrent to a quick and (dare I say?) easy birth! He and mom are doing beautifully. Audrey says, "I don't feel like I even gave birth!" Congratulations to this beautiful and growing family!
