A collection of photography and exploration focusing on Upstate South Carolina and beyond.
One of the reasons we headed to Washington DC last week was to see my niece, Katie, who was expecting her first child early September. Well, little Jack wouldn’t wait that long. So, welcome to the world, Jackson David Marshall, born August 20 at about 3:30. Mother and baby are doing great. Jack was 7lbs 2oz, 19.5 inches long at birth. I have shamelessly stolen these photos from Katie’s Facebook page.
Katie’s mom, Glynda, had just gotten back from DC, too. When Katie went into labor she had to make quick plans for a return trip, and I was going to drive her to the airport. When I pulled up to Glynda’s house, Jack had just been born, and Katie was on Facetime with her mom. I got to meet Jack mere moments after he entered this world, via telepresence.
Here’s a shot of the happy family…
…and here’s a shot of Glynda with her new grandchild once she finally made it to DC…
Glynda and I both joked that “Jack Marshall” sounds like the name of a character from a David Baldacci book – “Jack Marshall – CIA Operative”. Welcome to the world, Jack. Even if the CIA isn’t in your future, I’m sure that plenty of adventures await.
