introducing jack...

JACK...!!!! i thought your mommy was STILL in labor with you after 28 hours until i finally just talked to her briefly. i didn't get the text they sent out to everyone annoucing your arrival since i'm here...and y'all are there...

i thought you may still be in her belly because i asked your mom's friends' (your 'other' aunties) to email me at work, and i know at least ms. angie did, however, due to "circumstances beyond my control" (well, kind of...i inputted the wrong password 3x to lock myself out of my computer, and, honestly, the thing is, these government computers are a little fussy)...!! i'm glad you came at 7:42PM...angie, i have to check this with you...didn't YL club at LHS start at this time????? cool kid, indeed!!

you're a pretty darn cute (and smart) kid (aunt liesel was RIGHT!)...and i'm not surprised....check you out!!



this picture is FREAKY. like freaky enough to make me want to wait a good while before having friends for you to play with...it's in the a.m. sometime the day you were born. i think mommy was in labor 10 or so hours; i haven't talked to her more than 5 mins yet...


here, you are in awe of your daddy...hint, hint: he's a pretty great guy! he also just told you your last name and your dad's tag line in his online photo album was, "my last name is what?" don't worry, several of your friends have and will have "challenging" ones too! in addition to being great, he's extremely funny...like i think (ok, i know, i've peed <<>just a little<>>) when he has said something...(and this happens ALL the time). not the peeing part (honestly), just your dad being funny...

and your mommy is smart, beautiful, cool, silly, and super laid-back. i mean the picture says it all. she loves you so much, but she was very hungry because i'm sure she worked really hard to bring you into this world!! in my opinion, this picture could quite possibly be the best "mom after birth" picture i have EVER seen...

see the love in their smiles...their faces...you're in for quite a ride little jack! and check out your gorgeous, stunning mother. i mean this is her, all - naturale, right after you came into this world...!!! step aside angelina...

i'm signing off for now until i meet you, hopefully sooner rather than later!! but i don't know, yet. but i do know, i WILL scrapbook photos of you, like ones your dad put on his online album (ones i won't put on here)! there's a really funny one but i won't embarass you that much...hmmm...no, ok, i won't. i borrowed these picture above because i didn't think they would mind. when you're 16 and you bring your first girlfriend home, your dad, not your mom, will bring out these old scrapbooks i will starting making you (today)...that's how your family rolls! be strong. laugh it off. :)

welcome, sweet jack! ken and cort are in awe of this miracle for your parents, our sweet, dear friends. we, along with all the rest of your family and friends, are so in love with you...! you'll make it kid. too many people are going to make sure you don't end up like your daddy...just kidding...you would be so lucky...(you'll have enough of your mom in you, you'll seem normal :)
