I’m so pleased to finally tell you that Jackson John Grimmett was born at 12:26 p.m. on Thursday, March 21st, weighing 8 pounds 13 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. He was immediately taken to the NICU at Akron Children’s Hospital due to some breathing issues. While he’s still in intensive care, he is now breathing on his own and nursing well. He’s one strong little guy.

Jackson, 1 day old with Mommy and Daddy

Thanks to so many of you for the thoughts and prayers you’ve sent our way. It’s meant a lot to us!

I’ll have so much more to share once we’re settled back at home, which should, hopefully, be happening in the next few days.
