I finally have some pictures to post from our newest family member, John Patrick Eakes. Here he is hanging out about five hours after he was born.
Soon after we took the picture shown above, big sister Sarah arrived to check out the scene. Kristen and I had been talking to Sarah for a few weeks about her pending sibling, but nothing could fully prepare her for actually seeing the new baby.
This is Sarah meeting John for the first time. That meeting went well, and she has continued to be gentle with him since then. I am sure the fact that John was born bearing gifts for Sarah has nothing to do with the smooth transition.
