I thought I would share the wonderful news with you all. On Wednesday, March 5, 2008 at 8:54 am, Laura gave birth to Jared Stone Butts. Jared measured in at 19 inches long and weighed 8.5 lbs. Some say he looks just like me…what a handsome baby he then must be:-).
All kidding aside, Jared is healthy and Laura, who had a C-section, is recovering well from the surgery which went well and according to the doctors plans. Laura and Jared will probably be in the hospital until sometime Friday but possibly Saturday.
Caryn is already enjoying the role of big sister and has been a big help thus far. Not only has she already held Jared (with a little assistance) but she also is right there to hand us the diaper and wipe(s) as we need them to change Jared.
We never forget our Son, Kenny but we believe he is in the hands of our loving God whom we praise for the blessing of all three of our children. Holding your own child for the first time is one of those priceless experiences that I wish there was adequate words to capture the joy. Unfortunately, after three children I still have no words describe that joy. Those of you who have children understand the joy we feel. Those of you expecting children, I thank God for the joy you will be brought in the near future. Those of you who want children, I pray that God will bless you in that desire.
Stay tuned for some pictures!
