Check out my gorgeous wife and her new 'do! I had to show her off, so we headed to the park with Jack for his first picnic. We packed a dinner and enjoyed a little bit of rare pre-spring sun in Oregon. Of course, I had to take some pictures...

Can you believe her beautiful brown eyes?

Jack and I loved hanging out with his momma!

Jack loves his little cousin Abigail. We are very blessed to be so close with our families, and to be able to look forward to our children growing up together. I can't wait for the future! Although, the present is pretty awesome...

We spent the weekend with the Bunches and Tompkins in Salem. It was comforting and familiar to spend some time with my family, since we don't get to see each other as often as we used to. I've got more pictures and video from the trip, but this is my current favorite.

Jack is a happy little boy after his bath time! Momma loves to put him in his towel and sit in front of the heater. Jack apparently enjoys it!

This is pretty much my life after work now. How could I ask for anything more!! AND Becky is cooking now more than she ever has. Supermom/Superwife.

Friday, February 15, 2008 is baby time. Our good friends Sam and Jenna just had their second baby boy last night. His name is Isaac, and God has indeed been faithful. Isaac had a complicated delivery and was in trouble for a while. But God definitely protected him and he was born to his wonderful parents and big brother Nathan pefectly healthy. As is the style of our little group, Isaac is a big boy. 9lbs 9oz.

Today Becky, Jack and I went to the hospital for two visits! We helped Sarah and Eric home with Abby, and we ALL went to see Isaac. The room was packed. Stephanie and Henry joined us, and it was 6 adults and 4 babies! Here's the first picture of the future Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Sady. (who knows!)

Little Abigail was keeping an eye on Aunt Becky

Jack was along for the ride, and enjoyed meeting his new little buddy.

Becky, Jack and I got to go see baby Abby again today. It's amazing how quickly the features are emerging in her face. A lot of the swelling is gone and her beautiful eyes are starting to show. Daddy (Eric) thinks they will be brown like Ethan's eyes. She is very sweet and has the softest skin. What a cute little baby girl!

Well, lots of good news today! For starters, I'm blogging from my new computer which arrived today from Dell. They finally realized that they sent me a lemon the first time, and after 8 months, 4 visits from the hardwear warranty tech, 15+ hours on the phone with tech support, I have a brand new (upgraded, might I add) computer that seems to be functioning properly now. yay! On a related note, I was able to connect my old hard drive to my new computer, so the transfer of my 30GB's of photos went rather quickly this time. 30 minutes in contrast to the 6 hours it took last time.

But the best news of all is that my neice was born today! Abigail Grace Thompson was born at 1:13 pm today. She was 9lbs, 3oz, and she was 21 1/2" long. If she had stayed inside full term (or even plus a week like the boys) she might have come close to Ethan's 10lbs 1oz, or Jack's 10lbs 5oz. The Jagger girls make big babies...let it be known!

Here are some pictures of our little darling girl. PS - the Thompson family is spending their first couple nights just 2 doors down from where we stayed with Jack! It sure looked familiar in there! But I can guarantee we're going to get a little more sleep tonight than they are!

okay! it's been a crazy week...I know you are all missing your Bunch family updates. Our home computer crashed (again) so I don't have any current pictures of Jack to post at the moment, but don't you worry, we will get some up soon! In the meantime, I will tell you about my weekend. I went to Ohio to see my great friend Max get married! Max and I roomed together in college and I wouldn't have missed his big day for anything.
My itinerary was a little strange. I left Portland at midnight on Wednesday, flew to Houston, changed planes (after a 2 hour layover became a 4 hour delay), landed in Columbus, and drove to Cincinatti! We rehearsed the wedding on Thursday, had waffles on Friday morning, then a great wedding on Friday! I slept for 2 hours at Max's house after the wedding and then drove back to Columbus. Flew to Minneapolis, changed planes and then flew to Portland! It was quite a round-trip. I had a blast with Max and his wife Carisa, but was glad to be home with Becky and Jack!

Here's a pic of me and Max in our tuxedos.

This is Max and his wife Carisa on their first dance as a married couple!

I miss Max a lot (I hope you're reading this, Max) and would love if he and Carisa decided to move back to Oregon!!
