One of my dearest friends, Laura, gave birth to a beautiful BIG baby boy last Tuesday, June 16, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to this world!

Since Jack was the fourth baby that my close-knit group of lifelong friends welcomed into the world we were all prepared to camp out, anxiously awaiting his arrival just as we did with Bennett, Elliott, and Dayton. So, naturally, when we got the news that Laura would be induced at 8am I made plans to run a few errands with Elliott in the morning and arrive sometime after lunch to await baby Jack.

Being the true party-planner that she is Laura’s mom had a smorgasbord of snacks, drinks, and games available for the hours and hours of waiting that we planned to do.  Well, who knew that Laura would be such a champ and that she would deliver a 9 lb 9 oz baby before lunch?  Luckily, I had plenty of warning and I didn’t miss his arrival!  In the end, we all realized that the short wait worked out perfectly because it meant that we got to party afterward….and that Laura got to be there, too!  And, if you know anything about Laura, you know that she hates to miss a good party!

Welcome to the world, sweet, baby Jack!  You are so precious to me already and I can’t wait to know you more and more!
