Baby Jack

Jackson Robert Farrell joined us (very quickly) on April 26, 2014 at 6:56 am (12 days early!). My labor was only 3.5 hours from start to finish, and we BARELY made it to the hospital. Like, really... it was pretty stressful. Jackson was born 11 minutes after we walked in. Everything went well, however, and this has been my easiest recovery so far. He was 7 pounds, 8 ounces, and is my fairest kid. He's got strawberry blonde hair and pretty light eyes. We'll see if he stays that light. He has the same little chin cleft that Nora and Owen (and I) do. He has Nora's nose and the Farrell mouth that all my kids have. Besides that, he has his own look, though his facial expressions remind us of Owen when he was an infant. 

Matt's mom met us at the hospital and switched cars with us and took Nora and Owen. They had a full day of playing at the park, going to McDonalds, getting frozen yogurt, and even going to one of Owen's friend's birthday parties. They were super excited to come back and meet their little brother. Matt and I stayed one night in the hospital and then checked out by 11 am the next day - it's a lot more enjoyable (not to mention cheaper) to recover at home than in a hospital. Having three kids has been a little bit insane so far, but Matt and I just laugh at the craziness. I don't think our house will ever be clean again. :) Anyway, here are some photos. Enjoy!

Brand new!

7lbs, 8oz, my tiniest baby!

Wrinkly little old man face.

So happy he's here!

Proud sister and brother.

First family photo!

Owen is so sweet with Jackson - and SO helpful. What a blessing it is to have him as my first kid... if Nora had been first, we may not have had any more. ;)

The kids got new jammies for their sibling gifts. Nora has worn hers every night since.

Big sister/brother stickers from the nurse!
