Announcing the latest addition to the Jackson Family

Clayton David Jackson joined our family Saturday, August 30 in the early afternoon. Clay, as we call him, weighed in just under 8 pounds and was 20 inches long at birth. Chrissy had a very smooth labor and delivery. She was induced on Saturday morning about 8 am and pushed for about 15 minutes. Mother and baby are both recovering well at home. They both came home at about 6 pm on Sunday, the day after the delivery. We feel so blessed to have another child in our home.
Here is Marshall with Mom and Clay on Saturday evening, a few hours after birth. Marshall is giving his big cheese for the picture. He is excited about being a brother and helping care for Clay. Marshall is a little unsure of sharing the attention, but hopefully he will adapt in time.
Here are the boys. I'm just fine with continuing the males outnumbering the females in our home!
A close up shot. You can see he doesn't have a lot of hair yet. He is a pretty quite little boy so far and been more interested in sleeping than eating or staying awake. We will do our best to continue to update the blog with new pictures often. Thanks for all of your support, phone calls, and interest.

Marshall's 2nd birthday

Marshall has just recently been able to sit still enough to watch TV. We hope to use the media to our advantage... Elmo Potty Time!

Grammy added nicely to the Elmo theme with the Elmo slippers. It was so nice to have Grammy there.

Marshall was so excited to open his gifts. Ripping the paper was the exciting part for him.

Maybe he'll be a doctor or nurse someday???

Some may think this is strange, but Marshall's birthday cake was rice crispy treats. He is allergic to egg.

Ketti watched Marshall for the weekend while we went to Monterey. We figure that this would be the last time we could do something like this alone before the baby is born.

Here we are at Pebble Beach on the 17 mile drive.

Our Funny Boy

Grandpa Jackson came for a weekend to ski with Corbett in Tahoe. Before we got a chance to put the snowboard boots away, Marshall decided to try them on to see how they fit. He didn't get far walking in them.

Marshall likes to pick out his own clothes. He even looks trendy sometimes. Here he is sportin' the plaid shirt, church tie and navy coat.

Marshall likes crayons..... need we say more.

Chrissy's belly is growing. She's at 16 weeks!
