My Newest Nephew

On Friday, November 14, my sister gave birth to another beautiful (ooops...handsome) and strong healthy baby boy. This marks her 3rd son, the 5th grandson for my parents, and my 5th nephew!

Please help me to welcome the adorable Devin Jackson to the world. He weighed in at 8 lbs 12 oz, and was 22 inches long. He joins big brothers Drew and Dawson. And we are SO thrilled to be close enough watch him grow up. Here's the proud new aunt (well, one of us, at least) with her newest nephew....
It seems that November is a very popular month for babies to be born to people I know! On Tuesday, November 18, two friends also welcomed their sons. On of my best friends from high school welcomed their son, Ryan Patrick, who weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs 2 oz, and was also 22 inches long. And 12 hours away, a college friend and former coworker welcomed her son, Tyler Scott. Congrats to you both! Enjoy your sons -- they might be rough and tumble, but they are also cuddly and lovable and just plain wonderful! Blessings to you all, and to all the new babies born and to be born in the coming months.
Now we're sitting back and waiting for the birth of our newest addition in 20 weeks! Could it be the blessing of another boy? Or will Samantha be blessed with a sister? One thing is for sure...a baby will join us this spring, and we can't wait for him or her to meet the world!
