May we introduce John Wallace Ness!

God has truly blessed our family with the arrival of John Wallace Ness! Leslie and I must take this chance to praise him for his kindness, mercy, grace and sovereign love through this entire pregnancy, labor and delivery.

John was born today, May 13, 2010 at 3:46 pm in Salt Lake City, UT. Leslie and John are both healthy, safe and resting. He weights 8 lbs 10 oz, 19 in long.

And now, please enjoy these, the first of many pictures to come of our dear son.

Hey, congratulations! Great name for him to grow into! The 13th is okay, I guess, but May 12th would have been a better birthday (that's mine).

Nice beard, by the way, Pete.

I'm so happy for you both. You're just beginning a wonderful, life changing journey, and I couldn't think of two people who would make better parents! I'm glad you changed your mind, Peter. I remember a time when you weren't so sure you wanted to be a dad. You are a natural.

Love
