I just wanted you all to know that my wife, Lisa, gave birth to our baby today. We are proud to announce the birth of our second daughter, Heather Selene Jackson, who arrived at about 5:05 p.m. EST.
Heather is 8 lbs., 3 oz. and 21 inches long. Both she and Lisa are in excellent health, albeit very exhausted!
Our older daughter (sounds great to say that), Janna, has been staying with her grandparents (my mom and dad), but they came down to visit today, and she and her little sister hit it off right from the start, just as we had been praying they would. It was amazing to see. Janna was singing softly to Heather, and Heather had her little hand wrapped tightly around Janna's finger. My mom and dad were amazed!
I am very proud of my wife. She was very brave and very strong today, and she has prepared very well for this baby these past nine months. We are extremely happy!
Heather is the eighth baby for the current ApologetiX line-up, joining Keith's kids (Sam, Sarah and Abby), Bill's kids (Jacob, Rebecca and Rachel) and our Janna. Former ApologetiX drummers Rick, Keith and Fred have eight kids between them and our original bass player, Jerry, has seven kids (I asked him at church two weeks ago, and I couldn't believe it, either), so that's 23 kids in all!
Thank you all for your prayers. God has blessed us abundantly!
