Introducing....

I know I left you all in suspense.
Right now I'm running on very little sleep (we were awake for 25 hours straight, & I've slept an hour and 45 minutes total since then), so this is more informative and less story-like--his birth story will come later. I have to tell it, at some point, because it was nothing short of amazing.  And traumatic.  And I may have to gather more details from those who might remember it more clearly.
So, without further ado...
(And with a very grainy picture from my iPad taken in the early light of day--6:45),
I'd like to introduce you to our son.


Jack Campbell
Born on 6-11-13
at 1:11 am (he's almost 6 hours old)
Weighing 6 pounds 2 ounces (praise God!!)
and measuring 18.5 inches long. 

He's entirely too precious for words. 

We feel ridiculously tired and immeasurably blessed.

Thank you for praying!

  2. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Super duper excited! It does sound like you had a very long day but I am so happy for you and that he's over 6 pounds and just adorable. I told you he'd be perfect no matter what. Hope you get some sleep now and enjoy being done with that part. ;) Hope you get back to fighting strength soon. Love to all 3 (AH!) of you!!!!

  5. We all feel truly blessed about the new little life (and, I might add, his incredibly awesome mommy and daddy)! I just keep thinking about his precious little ears (they are like perfect shells) and his bright eyes clearly wanting to focus in on whoever was holding him. Oh, and him smiling at his daddy and finding his thumb!! What a smart, handsome little grandson you have given us. We love you and can't wait to watch little Jack Campbell grow.

    1. Yrs, his weight was good! He's lost a few ounces (I'm told that's normal), but I'm hoping he gains them back soon and continues gaining :)
