Baby Jackson Arrives!

Jackson arrived Wednesday morning bright and early at 7:12, weighing in at 8 pounds 13 ounces and 19.5 inches in length. Above is my son, Jason, greeting him in the nursery. He also helped give him a bath.
Jackson also did some stamping while in the nursery, stamping out his footprints on this world. They look to be rather large footprints for a newborn, but then his dad does wear a size 18 shoe. The booties they are supposed to put over shoes for surgery would not cover Jason's shoes! Maybe the kind you put over your head would have worked! Anyway, glad to have another little stamper in the family and hope to spend many hours rubber stamping with him in the future!
Jackson's hands aren't too small either so he should be able to handle a wood mounted rubber stamp in a couple of years!
Everyone is well and happy. Jim, though unable to be here, looks forward to each photo sent over the phone and is being a typical grandpa with his little slideshow on his blackberry! He is even showing the photos to the nurses at the hospital in South Carolina! There may be a state between us, but he is here in heart. His mother said she has to get to feeling better so she can hold the new addition to the Craft family!
