I'm here!!

To make it easier on everyone (and their inboxes) we've decided to start a blog to update everyone on Little Jacks.

Jackson John was born on Sunday, June 7th at 7:43p. He weighed 7.14 lbs and 19.5". A fun little anecdote about the delivery was right as Libby started to push there was a tornado warning for Des Moines and we all had to evacuate out of the room and move to the OR. So Libby, in her true nature, was being wheeled through the hall, moments away from giving birth, parade waving at everyone who had gathered there to evacuate. It was quite a sight to see.

Everyone was very excited once Jackson finally arrived. All the grandparents were there and great gramma Kline and Auntie Allie & Megan. Here are some photos from the first night. More to come soon!

Hope everyone gets to see Jacks soon!


  1. Wow, what a beauty! Congrats you guys!

  2. Wow!!! That is one of the cutest most adorable new babies I have ever seen!! Being a parent is a great thing! Congratulations to the two of you, you will be great parents!

  3. Congratulations Libby and Joe! We didn't believe Grandpa John at first and had to call Grandma Cyndi to verify, but after the initial verification process and photos, we can now safely celebrate Jackson John! We cannot wait to see him in person!
