New Arrival

We had a big week last week. A new member of the family officially came into our lives making Jackson a big brother. James Luca Vanzant was born on June 18, 2014 and weighed in at 7 lbs. 8 oz.

I was a little nervous before the arrival.


But everything went fine.

Jackson got to meet his little brother.


We were able to go home on Saturday. Below is Luca’s first car ride.


Jackson had a stay-cation in Florence, KY last week, which kept him very busy. He made red velvet cupcakes, chilled out, attended Vacation Bible School to hear music, and went to the swimming pool.

We’re back home now, adjusting to becoming a family of four. Jackson doesn’t quite know what to think of his little brother.  Only time will tell what that relationship holds.  Right now, it seems to be a contest to stay awake and have bowel movements at opposite times of the day.  Hopefully it will blossom into something more, but who know with two boys.  Stay tuned…
