Sweet Baby Jack is Here!

Baby Jack
Our cherished friends Kris and Jessica Marcantonio had their baby this week. Jack Tyler Marcantonio arrived 9 days overdue, on April 10th at 12:17 a.m. Boy, is his Mama glad he decided to move when he did! He was 8 lbs., 10 oz. and I think 22.5" at birth. Not huge by any means, but you see where he was headed if he had delayed much longer!

Jack is an adorable, wee baby boy with thick black hair and that saggy-baggy skin that newborns have until their muscles fill out. (I think one of the things I love most about a newborn is the way that his teeny lower lip buttons up underneath his upper lip. Makes a perfect little rosebud for kissing, plus it gives him that cute puckered chin!) His Daddy and Mama are well, and so happy to finally know their son.

We are delighted for you, Marcantonio family, and look forward to making many precious memories in the days and years to come--all six of us (and soon, all seven)!
