Meet My Grandson, Master Jackson Evan Morton

Thursday, May 27, 2010

May 2010 has certainly been an amazing month of double blessings for our family! We celebrate and rejoice in the birth of little Jackson Morton just this past Monday on May 24th. He weighed 8 lbs. 10 ozs., and was 20.5 inches long - a beautiful big baby boy! His mommy, my daughter-in-law had a wonderful delivery - short and sweet, thank You Jesus. 

This is Jackson just a few hours after he was born...
What a beautiful family...the brunettes :)
Hmmmmmmm...Gran Jan is also a brunette.
Perhaps Jackson got that dark hair from her too?
This is "Pop," my sweet husband with Jackson:
These are Jackson's maternal grandparents,
my son's wonderful in-laws.
 Jackson is their first grandchild
and they are so very excited!
My baby boy watching his baby boy in the nursery...
This is a blanket I made for Jackson that my
daughter-in-law brought to the hospital with her.
She also wore a necklace while she was in labor
that I had just given to her for Mother's Day.
It was the very same necklace that my husband
had given to me when our son was born.
When I saw her wearing it, I was so very touched...

When we first learned about the double grandblessings back in September and that we would have back-to-back grandbabies in May 2010, I really had no idea how it would be - I was just so thankful and VERY excited. The boys and their wives were even so thoughtful that they paid to have early sonograms so they could announce the genders to us on Christmas Eve. They gave us these stockings wrapped up as gifts and surprised us...this kind of thoughtfulness blesses us every day with these four wonderful children.  

The long-awaited month of May is almost over.  The double portion blessings are HERE and the joy begins.  I want to testify that I am committed to being the best Gran Jan ever. I will love and pray for my grands and I will be there for them - in every way possible. As long as the good Lord gives me breath, I will be there for my family.

Counting my blessings, naming them one by one...Zeke, Madie Ruth, Jackson...

He is so handsome, blessed Jan!
It's seems like just yesterday I was teaching your two boys in Bible school and discipleship training.
What a blessing for your family and you are going to make the best granJan to all three!
He does look like you!
Thank You, God, for these sweet babies. Surround them with love, grace and a deep love for Your Son, Jesus. Give these parents wisdom and joy to parent these treasures. And give these grandparents everything they need to support them. In Jesus Name. Amen.

He is so precious and I love his dark hair! It reminds me of my youngest son, when he was born he had dark hair and a lot of it! I smile and praise God for blessing you with beautiful grandbabies and I have no doubt that you will be the best Grandmother to them!
Love,
Patty

He is absolutely adorable!
We found out last Thursday that our daughter is going to have a boy. Due in Oct.
It'll be our first and I cannot wait!
The verse I found on a little outfit says ""O LORD, may your love always protect me." Psalm 40:11
That's my prayer for this little one of mine.
Congratulations Jan!
