We are pleased to introduce you to our new, wonderful baby boy. His name is Jack Davies Gensheer. Don’t let his 7lbs. and yet to be recorded height fool you; he is a stud! He has beautiful brown eyes (which he gets from his mommy) and short, stocky legs (which, he gets from his daddy – poor guy). At only 45 minutes old, he has quite the personality. Strong-willed only begins to describe him – he didn’t want to come out for most of the day.
Maggie is a real trooper. She’s been here since 8 am this morning, with Jack making little and slow progress most of the day. We had a bit of a scare in the afternoon with his heart rate dropping and talk of a possible emergency C-section, but alas, Mr. Determined (that would be Jack) decided to relinquish his warm, nestled stronghold and take on the brave new world.
So thank you for your prayers and your phone calls and letting us share this with you. Be on the lookout for some pictures over at our family blog – The Gensheer Journey – sometime in the next couple of days.
Chris, Maggie, Maya, Alex and now “baby Jack”
