Introducing Jack!

Ann and I are thrilled to announce that Monday evening, March 31, at 6:37pm, Ann gave birth to Jack (full name, John Glen Jordan) at Northside Hospital in Atlanta. Jack weighed in at a hefty 9lbs 1oz and measured a lengthy 22in.

Ann was due back on March 23 but, that date having come and gone without the least contraction, Ann and her OBGYN, Dr. Jose Garcia, scheduled an induction for the morning of March 31. Jack's delivery began at 4.30pm Monday afternoon. It was a long and tiring delivery for both Ann and baby, but they're both doing fine. Jack had a little trouble with his breathing at first but he is getting on great now.

We've posted pictures of Jack before (at our 8 week and our 20 week sonograms). But here are few from today's excitement:

Congratulations! Jack is beautiful!
All 3 of my kids were big babies, what is great is that they take to nursing right away...and with gusto!

God Bless,

Well done, Ann! Lucy is particularly impressed that you were carrying around such a big boy. Enjoy every minute, even the late night stuff. We're excited for you both and can't wait to meet Jack (and for you all to meet Frances).

Congratulations to the new Mommy & Daddy. You made a beautiful little boy. Jack's going to be a heartbreaker - you can see it in his cute little cheeks.

Wish you all the best!
