My brother Preston left for the MTC in Brazil on Tuesday morning. It was a little sad to say goodbye for two years, but we are all so excited for him.

My due date for Jack was July 15th, but I really wanted him to come sooner than that. Once July hit I was just ready to be done being pregnant. Not that my pregnancy was a bad one - it was a very good pregnancy - but I was just so ready for my body to be my own again. Also, I wanted my brother to meet him before he left on his mission. Anyway, on July 2nd all of my dreams came true. I was starting up the old lawn mower getting ready to mow the lawn when my water broke - hoooooray!!!! This was at 7:30 pm, and by 9:00 Sean and I were at the hospital (June was with Grandma Nae). My labor went quickly and pretty smooth (of course I had an epidural to help out). I pushed twice and at 12:45 am my Jack arrived. Below is Jack on the scale just after he was born. The happy mother with her darling boy!!

Our beautiful baby boy arrived early July 3rd at 12:45 am. He is just a little guy weighing in at 6 lbs 5 oz and only 18 1/2 in. long. His name is Jack Norman Marshall and we couldn't be more tickled that he is here. We love him to pieces and think he is the most handsome boy ever!! I will post more pictures later (having a little trouble with my camera). These are pictures that my mom took.
