New Family Member

Good morning sisters! Jill gave birth at 2:53 pm yesterday after almost nine hours of labor. She did great and is resting in the hospital.

Here is Ayden Wade moments after birth who weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs. 14 oz. and is 22 1/2 inches long. Another big boy. And all this at a week and a half early.

Look at that chunky thigh going on.

COngratulations on your beautiful new grandson! He looks so healthy! My thoughts will be with Jill - I hope her body doesn't hurt her too badly... After a little boy that big though, I bet she's in a world of hurt! I hope she gets some much needed rest, and enjoys the new addition of her wonderful family. Hopefully little Ayden will be a good sleeper for his Mamma!

Thank you so much for sharing those sweet pictures - my ovaries are absolutely tingling! Tee-hee! Much love to you all, take care and God Bless!

My sweet little Jillie Bean. I love you so much and your family as well. Another beautiful boy. Cherish each and every day and moment with these little gifts that were lent to you from heaven. I am very proud of both you and Wade and the wonderful parents you are. Little Byron looks like he loves his little brother (or at least until he is old enough to get into Byrons things and push the buttons that will surely aggravate him to no end. Then again, when they become young adults they will cherish each other with a passion just as I cherish your mom (my sister) and all of my brothers and sisters. Now bear in mind had I been a young teen I would never have admitted to this because.....well you just don't admit you love your siblings at that age. At any rate I have been blessed with the best of the best - sisters, brothers, neices, nephews, and on and on and on. Love to all and congrats.
