Mission Accomplished

OBSO is officially a success! I guess The Critter didn't like the idea of being too late either.

I sorta got smacked by the birthin' stick. No no, wait, it was more like flattened like a copper penny on the steel rails of the West Coast Birthin' Train Line. Hang on, here it is... I was blasted off the shuttle launch pad into orbital motherhood in a wacky blink of an eye. Well you get the picture. It was pretty quick. Here's the short version:

6:30 am - Woke up with some cramping and spotting.
8:32 am - Jackson Fletcher Tarnay was born.
8:34 am - Midwife arrived.

The Hub has already taken 190 pictures. I'm serious.

And here he is in his Blogspot debut...

Un-like Karel I'm not at all surprised it took you only 49 minutes to post pics on the blog =). I actually bet sara that you would have a post with in an hour. He may have been a quarter day late, but at least your blogging was as timely as expected.

I am so happy for you. Way to catch LEE!!

Jackson,
Many blessings to you. May you be Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise.

I hope our birth goes as close to due date, and is as smooth and quick as yours. Although Sara is truly hoping to have a full cadre of professionals in attendance. So we hope we have at least enough time to get to the hospital. Not sure I'm up for doing as much as Lee must have.

Congratulations!!

Jackson - Welcome to the world! I guess it was the heat wave that hit Cali that made you come out so quickly. WE are so happy for you and your parents and can't wait to hear the story of your quick descent and meet you in person.

All our love,

Dave, Kori and Casey

OHMIGOD! He is sooooo beautiful! A picture of perfection! I'm so glad you had an easy delivery and that Lee caught the most important catch (other than you)of his life. We have friends where the same thing happened and the dad is still talking about it 12 years later. Very special! Can't wait to hug all of you!
