A new baby named Jack {minus the baby}



It sometimes happens, 
even in the best of families, 
that a baby is born.  
This is not necessarily cause for alarm.  
The important thing is to keep your wits about you 
and borrow some money.  
~Elinor Goulding Smith


I don't talk a lot about my brother Johnny.
He is the baby in our family.


He is very special of course!


 I think he is 30 now.
Today he had his third kid.
Well, he didn't actually produce the kid of course-
his wife Joey did.


I haven't gone to the hospital to see the baby yet.
My Daddy called and basically FORBID me from coming...
so I abstained : )


 See, Joanna is not like our family at all.
She is quiet and calm and peaceful.
The Leatherman part of the family is a little bit psycho.
We try to hide it...but it always comes out.
Oh well.


 Never fear though,
tomorrow is a new day.
I am almost positive I will be allowed to see the baby tomorrow.
I can hardly wait.


 Katelyn and Jacob got to see the baby tonight via the window in the hospital.
They thought he was cute.
And tiny.


 We are all so excited about the baby.


Babies make life better : )

Oh, my... why wouldn't they want you there from minute one? Can they not see how amazing you are at capturing those details that will be forgotten in a heartbeat? I surely hope that you can go tomorrow. Not just for you.. for them. And those pics are out of this world...

Gorgeous pictures! I love the name Jack. It was at the top of my list of boy names for this one, but Josh nixed it. Grr. I can't wait to hear all about the new baby! And see pictures.

Wow, Jack is bound to be adorable with siblings like that! He has an awesome auntie too, and maybe he will be lucky enough to pick up a few of the psycho genes. Keeps people guessing. :-)
