JASPER JOHN

Hello, all! I am SO happy to be here right now, introducing you to our newest arrival - our precious Jasper John!

Stats: 7 lbs. 10 oz.
19 1/2 in. long
dark blue eyes
red hair
BIG head (just like his brother!)
born at 9:44am on March 14, 2009

I think he looks a bit more like Michael, different from Bennett in several ways, although they really do resemble each other. His head shape is almost exactly like Bennett's.

So far, little Jasper has been a very low-key, low-maintenance baby. He rarely cries, and when he does, it's more like a soft complaint. I'm beginning to wonder if he's actually a shy, sensitive little guy, rather than the spit-fire I thought he'd be based on his actions in the womb :) I think we'll have a better idea tomorrow, but it's so AMAZING to me how different he and Bennett are, even after just one day of life! God is so big and so great and so amazing to orchestrate each person so wonderfully and differently :)

Bennett met him today and kept saying "baby! baby!" over and over again, giving him kisses, gently patting him, etc. It was precious.

I'm doing great. I'm glad I chose to have a repeat c-section. It was a great experience and was quick and painless :) Thank you, Lord!

I'll post more pictures soon! Thank you all SO much for your prayers and love! More pictures and updates to come in the following days!
