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.
