Mason Curtis McGurn

Huge praise to God for the work that he did today! Jess was amazing. She showed tremendous amounts of courage, and guts. I could not be more proud of my beautiful wife!

We arrived at the Hospital at 6:30am ready for a long day. The day really got started around 7:15pm. Jess went from 6cm dilated at 7:15ish to OH GOODNESS I am ready and need to push by 8:20ish. Then she had to wait for her doctor to get to the hospital...this lasted for 30 min. (That had to be the longest 30 min of her life) Then at 8:55pm on the 24th of March, Mason Curtis McGurn was born.

Mason was 7lbs 10oz and 20.5in long. His middle name comes from Jess' dad, Grandpa Curt. We are extremely proud to give him the middle name Curtis. He found his thumb within minutes of being born. He does look like a brother of Jackson, but does have darker features...maybe he will have a little more McGurn in his look?!?!

Jess is doing well. Mason checked out good with the ped. today. We look forward to bringing him home tomorrow and introducing him to his older brother. We just pray that Jackson handles the transition well, and adapts to having a new baby brother.
