Joseph Landon Thackston

is here!!!!!! AND OMG he is beautiful. I would love to share him with you here but I will wait for his mom to share his beautiful picture. She did PERFECT and it was a very easy delivery for them both. He weighed 6 lbs 5oz (not bad for a 5 week early baby) and is 19 1/4 inches long. He has a head of dark hair and is just perfect. He will have to spend a little bit of time in NICU but it's just precautionary since he is so early. He was having a time breathing and just needs a little help until he can get stronger!

I am so blessed that Rachael let me be there. Thank you my love. that is the most precious gift of life to observe and it is just a moment I will never, ever forget!

Welcome Landon. We are all excited that you are here!
