Our Little Boy has Arrived!

Jacks's Birth Announcement

We've all make it home safe and sound. This birth was pretty easy compared to Abbie's. We left for the hospital at 8:15 pm and Jack was born shortly after midnight. Julie was a champ - two pushes and he was out! Julie's mom and sister flew in so we've been having a great time with all the family around. Life is great in Denver right now.

The whole family

Let me add my congratulations as well. I bet Abbie is pretty excited that her little brother has finally arrived.

Congrats, Matt! Another great developer just got born! ;-) Abby looks really happy (I can't say the same for my daughter that saw my other newborn almost three months ago and said - now, you're all gonna love the baby more than me... but she's 8 though).

Congratulations to you all!!!! Enjoy your time off, Matt, the first weeks after childbirth are a such special and wonderfull time. And they are behind you all too soon.....Abbie looks like our son Jonathan when he saw his little sister for the first time. Little Jack is lucky to have a sister like her! (And a mother and father like Julie and you of course :)

Congratulations and all the best wishes for your family ! I will give three free Gmail-invites to the first posters who tell me after whom my son Linus (about two years old) is named and what operating system I'm using :-) My second one will be in March so there's some time left, but I'm glad that your second birth was so easy. Enjoy your holidays !
