My Baby is 8!!!

The last of my kids hits the Big 8!
A very special age since he is now old enough for baptism!!
Since his birthday is in August, right before school starts it's always hard to get friends to come to his party. But we sent out save the dates the last day of school in june and we got some more friends to come this year. :) UNFORTUNATELY hurricane rain decided to show it's face that day and we had planned a pool party. Lightning and torrential rain started 1/2 hr before the party started. So I had to call everyone and tell them we were going to start the party at the house to do food/cake/presents and then hopefully go up to the pool after that. It worked out great. The rain stopped right b4 the party started and didn't come back. So the last hour we spent at the pool and we were the only ones there!
Happy Birthday to you

He was scheduled to be delivered a week early because he was big, 8.3,
and I'm...not so big. Thanks Dr. Williamson!!

6 hrs of labor and he arrived!
The only time Spencer got near Jack was here. After that he had a complex
about having a baby in the house.
