Oh, so wonderful! When you didn't post for a couple days I wondered if you delivered. Jackson Elliot is a great name and he looks like you. Congratulations! I hope nursing goes well for you. I found it a different adventure with each of my kids. You forget how often those little ones want to eat and how short the night is when you're lucky to get a three hour stretch of sleep. Still, cupping that little diaper bum in your hand while he snuggles into your chest, is so wonderful. I'm so glad Jackson arrived safely. I hope you post details of his arrival...but not at the expense of a nap, of course. Anyway, take care of yourself and your beautiful family.
