Jacob Daniel.
May 07, 2015

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.

    Mitzi, I actually fought for George and lost. Now I’m glad Donald’s pick won or it’d be weird!

    I simply had to appreciate you yet again. I do not know what I might have made to happen without the creative ideas provided by you about such a situation. Certainly was the frightening concern for me personally, nevertheless being able to see a skilled mode you processed it made me to leap with delight. Extremely grateful for the information and even have high hopes you comprehend what a powerful job you are always getting into training others with the aid of your site. Most likely you have never got to know any of us.
