July 15, 2010 - The Day That Changed Our Lives Forever

Hello outside world!  Our lives have been radically turned upside down and we couldn't be happier with the arrival Jackson David.  I have so many thoughts, so much to say, yet so little time between feeding Jackson and trying to catch up on sleep.  So, rather than try to write everything out, here are some photos of the last few days...

Arriving at the hospital at 6:30 after my water broke at 4:30.

Dr. Craig Myers, our awesome doctor checking my contractions.

Mom and Dad arrive.

Waiting on Baby Jackson

Sweet Jenn arrives from South Carolina

Hatta brought a journal for everyone to sign and keep up with what was going on

Some of our AWESOME high school friends who stayed up ALL NIGHT waiting on Baby Jackson to get here.  We love you guys!!
