It's a Boy!

He's here, folks! We got the call about a little while ago and he had been born within the hour...so he's probably been here about 2 hours!

We won't know a lot tonight except that they said he is "a chunk!" They hadn't weighed him when they called us but the hospital was estimating 8 lb. 9 ounces... a chunk of love, I tell ya!

Now...we wait the 24 hours until she signs the papers. Some of that is supposed to be sleep time which, remarkably, I might be able to do tonight knowing that the delivery went O.K.

Who am I kidding?

Tonight and tomorrow will probably be the longest 24 hours of my life. But...I am thrilled. Beyond words. My son is one step closer to being home... I could not be more excited.

Hurry home, J.

OH OH OH OH! Congratulations! He's here! Baby Jacob! That's great news, that chunk thing. The bigger he starts out, the more he can eat a time and the longer he'll sleep at night! WOOHOO! I can't WAIT to see that boy in his ducky sleeper!

My husband and I went out for the evening and I am just getting back for the update. I couldn't wait for morning! Congratulations Mama! I love the name and I am so happy that every thing went okay. Try to get some sleep, you are going to need it for the weeks to come.

Oh Katibod...I'm soooo excited for you all. I can't wait to see little Jacob (and you too:). I would say get some rest but that would just be silly now. Love you! Christi
