it's raining babies: welcome, Jordan! (And Noah's birthday)

The craziness started last Friday as Mark was bringing Jill
home from the hospital the day after she had Peter.
Jenny, expecting in about two weeks, was experiencing signs of labor!
For a few hours we wondered if we might have two babies in two days.
The visits to and from the birthing center ended in Jenny finally going
home yesterday morning, May 31, to await labor.
And May 31 is Dan and Jenny's son's birthday,
turning two yesterday!
This photo of Noah taken by Ari, age 5!
He's very difficult to capture.
Mid-afternoon we wished Noah a happy birthday via facetime.
Within the hour, Jenny's water broke and an hour or so after that,
she gave birth to Jordan Elizabeth Haller!
Would you look at this face?
She's beautiful and well-loved by Ari, Ashlyn and Noah
and has made us grandparents for the SEVENTH time!
For those a little lost on all these children ...
we have four granddaughters, ages 5, nearly 4, 3, and newborn. 
And three grandsons, ages 2, 21 months, and newborn!
I'm simply amazed and thankful!
The five older ones will be in David and Chelsea's wedding in July
so obviously our summer is crazy full and fun.
Thank you for all the messages, prayers and good wishes!!
