Introducing...

our newest grandson!!  He arrived on his due date, 6 lbs. 15 oz. and 21" long.  My very creative DDIL made this pendant for his arrival.  The nurses made quite a fuss over it.
Big sister was immediately smitten.
She really couldn't believe it was a real baby :).
 
And her attentiveness continues even at home.  She wants to hold him often and then poses for you to take her picture.  She is such a delight!
This picture to me is pure joy.  Here are some random shots of our trip to Myrtle Beach last week for our first visit.
He loves his mommy.....
and his Daddy.  (Jack seems to have inherited his daddy's love of sleeping LOL.)
Aunt Katie and Cameron...
Uncle Jeremy and James...
everybody got their turns holding him for the first time.
James with his little boy cousin.
And this is the first picture of all 4 of our grandchildren :).
All babies are miracles from God...  I could stare at this face all day.
I noticed that this is not the best background..... but getting a picture like this is harder than it looks!!  I am just glad we took a picture.
Next time I'll share Baby Jack's quilt.
I am blessed.
Karen

Great photos, Karen! You have such beautiful grandchildren. And two of each gender... you are blessed. Love the pictures of Jack and big sis. They are simply precious. I am very, very happy for you, and especially that you were able to visit for a week.

What a beautiful family! I know you are in heaven being with all of them. My son lived in Myrtle Beach, and that's where our precious Harrison was born. We lost Chris, my son, last October at age 44. I still cannot believe he's gone. I think going back there will be too sad for me, the memories will just be too much..
Your little girl is absolutely beautiful, she should do modeling in magazines for children. So good to see you so happy, enjoy every moment..

Baby Jack is cuter than the banner on the baby bed but what a creative idea.
