Gage Patrick Garner is here!

It's a boy!  Gage finally arrived on Thursday, February 24th at 1:14PM.  I went into labor at 2:45AM on Thursday, and my water broke just as I was settling into the hospital bed around six in the morning.  Much to our surprise, Gage weighed 9 pounds, 2 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long.  Everything went very well, and we all went home the next day, Friday.  Unfortunately, Jack and Jason were both sick all week after that.  Now we are getting used to life with two kiddos.  I'll post again with the total birth story soon.  Here are some pictures:

Jack will not come take a family picture with us, much to our annoyance.
All my boys, at home on the couch


  1. So special! I love the pic that Jack wouldn't "bahave" in : ) It kinda makes the picture even more great because of the little picture story it portrays! I'm so happy for you guys. Can't wait to meet him!

  2. What a BEAUTIFUL baby....reminds me of his mama!
    Fabulous family of four!
    So happy for you,

  5. Hi guys!
    So glad to see the pics. I can't believe how big Jack has gotten. Little Gage is stunning! That 'family pic' should totally be the Christmas picture for this year.
