Baby Jacob

He's finally here. Jacob was born on Thursday April 2nd at 4:21pm. He weighed 8lb 9 oz and was 21 inches long. (he didn't weigh as much as I thought he would). I'm home and trying to get rest. My mom and Darren are my saviors right now. I'm struggling with some "blues" but trying to overcome them. I'll be back to normal hopefully in a couple weeks. The baby is super good. He is a sweet little guy. The kids love him and want to hold him all the time. I'll write more later when I'm up to it. Here are some pics of the new addition. I'll add an album to my facebook page later with more pics. Thanks for all the emails, concerns, and kind things from everyone. We are doing well and adjusting.

No fair, my mom beat me to a comment. I'm so happy for you, mostly to be done being pregnant!! Just think, "I'll never have to do this again." Maybe that will help. I'm gonna try and call you today, but just wanted to add my congrats. I've been thinking about you a lot!

So sweet! He is a cutie! So I heard there were complications and they induced is that true? I hope not,but keep us up to date on everything.

Peggy said...

How sweet!!! Almost...almost makes me want to have another one. I love the pictures of everyone loving little Jacob. There is something about a new sibling that brings out the sweetest sides of the kids. Congratulations, and I hope you are doing well. Don't forget to take care of yourself. I think the biggest trick at this point is figuring out which of the important things can be delegated or let go. I wish you all the best!!!

Oh WOW he is a cutie!!! Really. He's perfect!!!! Congrats girl! I love the pic of Darren and Jacob and their noses touching. Lily looks so grown up next to the baby. I'm glad you're getting help. The blues suck. I think I'm having them now. haha. Can they still be postpartum blues, even though it's been 7 mo's?? haha.
