Birth Announcement: Shane Quincy

I have big news to share!
My husband and I welcomed a brand new baby boy into our family this week!
Suri Cruise says it's bad form to announce a baby's birth on the web... so please pretend you received this in the mail, printed on heavy cardstock and addressed to you in custom calligraphy:
We can't release any photos of Shane Quincy until the bidding war between People and Vanity Fair is resolved. However, a poll of his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins was taken. His cuteness approval rating is a 99%, with a margin of error of +/- 1 percentage point. And really, if you can't trust extended family to give an honest answer regarding a baby's cuteness, who can you trust? 


  1. Congratulations to you and your husband! That's wonderful news. You're a full-on family now. When's the E! News exclusive?

  2. Congratulations Jim and Jill! I got his picture and I'm also in a bidding war for a photo release.
    I agree, with the 99% +1! Sleep well, can't wait to meet him.

  3. What a neat idea for a middle name! One of your Branch County Fans!! Who grew up in Quincy too, next door to Aunt Judy!

  4. Congratulations, Jill!!! (And the rest of the family as well) I have been thinking about you and wondering if he was here yet. Enjoy every moment as they go so quickly by.... Now you are available for "The Talk", right? God Bless!!

  5. Congratulations ma'am. It's been a VERY long time. Congratulations on everything.
