Baby Zane


I used to think to myself that I could never love another child as much as I love Quinton. But now that I've witnessed another miracle come into my life, I understand that I was wrong. He's been in my life a whole 2 days, and he's already changed my life. I was holding that little boy in my arms just minutes after he was born and I found myself crying. I was so happy and amazed and excited and so much more.


Quinton was so excited to be a big brother - the first night he didn't act like it so much, but when we went to pick Jana and Zane up from the hospital today, he couldn't wait to get there, and when a nurse walked in to check on the baby, he got upset and asked her why she was taking our baby.
I'm not sure how we'll handle another baby - I'm not sure how Jana will handle being the only girl in the house - I guess that's why she calls it Life with Guys - but I know he belongs in our family. He may never know the miracle he really is for us, and how much we looked forward to his coming. I just hope we can be good parents for both our sons, like our parents are and were for us.

For anyone who didn't hear, he was 6 pounds 12 ounces and 19 inches long. He was born at 3:04 pm on Saturday, August 18th.

Lots of dark hair like his dad. My mom says he looks just like I did, and she brought a picture of me when I was a newborn - I can honestly say I can see the resemblance, he is such a cute kid!

OH you are so sweet honey. I'm all weepy. What an amazing dad you are and will continue to be. And I'm so excited and happy to have Zane in our lives. What a joyous blessing, for many reasons, a true gift from God.

What a cutie baby Zane is! Congrats you two! You guys are just awesome parents. Jana, you will get the hang of having 2 kids. I think the 2nd kid was the easiest for me so far! Oh I am baby hungry now...stop that!

He is Adorable! Congrats! Isn't it amazing when you realize that your capacity to love grows when you have a new child? It is truly amazing and humbling at the same time!

Congratulations Bryan and Jana! He is so cute! Thanks for letting our family come up to see all of you at the hospital on Sunday. That was such a treat. We are so excited to have a new nephew/cousin.
