Introducing baby Jack

He’s heeeeeeere!

Jonathan McCrary Keller, Jr. was born at 10:50am Tuesday November 13th, 2012. Baby Jack weighed in at 7lbs 10oz, 20.5in long. His head was 13.5in around and he scored 9 and 10 on his Apgar tests. He. is. perfect. The nurses have assured us that although they have to tell every family that their baby is cute, ours really is!

As new mom and dad, we are overwhelmed by love for this little one, and still recovering from a 31-hour labor (more on that to come). Today we read Joshua 24:1-15 together: “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” What a weighty responsibility–to introduce Jack to our Savior, Jesus Christ–but one we accept with open hands and full hearts. Join us in praise to the God who has blessed us so enormously.

    Oh Maggie! SO happy for you! I am praying for you & Jon as you bring up your precious Little Mister. I will also pray for your recovery…I was blessed to just arrive home from being in the hospital all weekend for Sharon’s 30 hour 30 minute labor with baby Cora Ellynn (#3)…her first, Zechariah, was nearly 32 hours…much praying for you Mamas, as well as giving thanks for the beautiful gift of life that God has given! Thank you for the long-distance introduction to the newest member of your family! 🙂

    A big congratulations from the Sallade family! Jeremy is especially thrilled that he has a new friend who 1) is a boy and 2) whose name begins with a J and 3) whose birthday is just 3 days after his. He is beside himself!! He only wishes we lived in the same town. We will pray for your recovery and adjustment to life together. We share your joy.
