We are very happy to announce the arrival of our son, Ian Jason Haggard.
He was born today, Wednesday, December 3rd, at home at 11:07am. He weighed in at 8 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. We are all doing well, though a bit tired.
We chose the name Ian which is Scottish in origin and means “God is gracious.” Thinking back on this last year, Jason & I can see so many ways that God’s grace has been inexhaustible in our life together. We want Ian to grow up knowing that same kind of love and we hope his name is a tangible reminder to him and to us.
We chose Jason (which means “healer) as Ian’s middle name, as it is a Haggard tradition for the firstborn son to carry on his father’s name.
Jason did so awesome during the labor & birth. We also had an amazing team in our midwife, doula and birth assistant. I look forward to telling more about the labor & birth soon.
