On Wednesday, April 22nd, at 5:53 in the morning our family welcomed Jacob Daniel. He weighed 8 pounds, 10 ounces and measured 21 inches long. I labored and delivered him at home, where Charlotte caught him.
Jacob brought his sisters each a princess dress. Actually, Charlotte and Genevieve snuck three princess dresses into our shopping cart several months ago. When I noticed, I pretended to put them back - and then paid for them when the girls were not paying attention to use as the gifts that their baby brother would one day bring. The girls have, naturally, been living in their respective dresses ever since.
I will post more details later. For now, please know that we are healthy, happy, and adjusting well. Jacob is a champion sleeper and a champion eater and we are now realizing that four children generate much more laundry than we previously thought possible.
