Baby Jace

Hi, everyone - thanks for all the sweet comments on Ed's post. I know everyone is chomping at the bit to see more pictures, so here's some from the night of his birth and a couple I took yesterday. I'm sure we'll be taking lots more in the next few days.

Uncle Erin with his new nephew

Midwife (Carey Ryan) weighing our little chunker in at 10 lb - which she called to the ounce when he came out! Doesn't she look like a midwife in this picture?

Sweet Baby Jace

Big Sister once again - Jordan doesn't walk past him without stopping for a smooch!

Jakey looks unhappy - but he's actually concentrating very hard on HOLDING!
Jace's birth was an amazing experience. We have some amazing family memories that we'll always treasure - especially Jakey helping his daddy cut the cord. And having our whole family up in our bed just after he was born. Priceless. I wouldn't trade my homebirth experiences for anything. Just amazing. I know Grandma and Gummie were both thrilled to be here and I was thrilled that my brother, Erin was here as well.
I'll try to post more pics in the coming days.

I can't wait to meet this little guy. I hope that things are going well still at home, 4 weeks already! I hope to meet him at church one of these days. I am still in AWE of how you do the things with your children, I so wish that you were not moving, I have learned so much from you already. Well keep us posted!
