Ate Dinner at 6, Had a Baby at 9!

My dear friend, Megan, can honestly say that!

Introducing John Webster "Jack" Hutchings!
Born June 4, 2009 at 9:02 p.m. at a very healthy 7 pounds, 1 ounce and 20-and-a-half inches long! He was pink and has all 10 fingers and toes...he is just perfect.
Megan was originally scheduled to be induced Friday morning at 5:30, but wee Jack had plans of his own! I'm thinking it's because he was getting really, really hungry.
Such dark hair! Megan and Web's first son, Vance, has curly, red hair - isn't it amazing how siblings are so different from each other?
Megan, Jack and Web...Big Brother Vance will get to meet Jack for the first time on Friday afternoon!
The "aunts"...we were so, so excited.
There is just something about baby boys...maybe it's because I have one of my own. I also love how Jack is already throwing gang signs.
It was very hard not to cry holding him...I did tear up a little, thinking back to being in same hospital, in a carbon copy of their room, meeting my little baby for the first time, and looking at how perfect and soft Jack is. Babies are such miracles - when you look at them, it's overwhelming to think about all that they will learn, do, see, experience and become. You're holding concrete potential when you're holding a baby, and God's greatest gift.

Congratulations, Megan and Web! You have a beautiful baby boy and a beautiful family.
