Welcome Jaksen Andrew!

Justin's sister, Cayce, gave birth to her second son yesterday.  Jaksen Andrew was born at 11:37 am on August 19th.  He weighed 7 lbs 3 oz and is 20 inches long.  He is SOOOOO good.  He never cries or fusses.  I swear, Cayce had the easiest labor and delivery I have ever heard of.  She went in at 5:45 am for an induction.  By 11 or so, she was fully dialated and after 3 big pushes and one half push he was out.  It was so fast.  Justin, Lucy, and I got here about an hour before he was born.  I have never seen a baby that was minutes old and it was amazing. I was in Nashville when Wyatt was born, but he was already several hours old when I saw him. It is different when they literally first come out. I just couldn't believe it.  He has a head full of golden hair.  It is thick and kind of long. He has really long toes and fingers like Justin. He is absolutely perfect.

Of course, Lucy is in love with him.  She just adores babies.  Austen has been great too.  He was napping when Jaksen got home, so we will see what he thinks about the new baby actually being at his house.

I have taken a million pictures.  I can't get enough of the baby.  I just want to snuggle him all of the time.  I am trying to share though!! Enjoy my new nephew's sweetness.

So sweet! Cayce is going to be so glad to have such good pictures to document his birth! I was so grateful for Kate's photography skills when I had Cole!
