Welcome, baby

I don't have the time (or more than one free hand, for that matter) to write much right now, but I have to let you all know that Jackson has indeed arrived. All 9 pounds, 8 ounces, 22 1/2 inches of him! He's a nice big boy. :)
Jackson entered the world at 1:36 on Sunday morning, after roughly 20 hours of labor. We are ecstatic and blessed and SO in love with this little guy. We have many pictures to post, so stay tuned!

Blessings to you, Dan and that precious new life.
