Welcome to the World Charles William Jacobs!


Charlie entered the World on Monday, November 9, 2009 at 8:39 a.m. He weighed a healthy 9 pounds 6 ounces and is 21 1/2 inches long! He came via c-section and it took 4, count them, 4 people to "push" him out of the incision. Even the anesthesiologist got in on the action. We were so excited to welcome him to the family.


The girls weren't able to come up to the hospital because of the new H1N1 policy but the anticipation built up and they were VERY excited to bring him home on Thursday.


Jeff and I thought we were prepared for the first night having done it twice before-we thought wrong. No amount of experience prepares you for the exhaustion, confusion, middle-of-the-night diaper changing (all the more challenging with a boy, I might add) and scrambling around that newborn care requires.


While we are walking around today in a zombie-like state, we feel extremely blessed to have this sweet baby boy in our lives.

  1. He is so beautiful! I can't wait to kiss those pudgy cheeks! Amen to the "nothing prepares you..." I'll keep that in mind when it's my turn.

Elizabeth's quotes during her illness

On Tamiful:
"This medicine tastes worse than mud!" When has she tasted mud???

On her fever:
"I'll never be able to go outside with this fever." Poor baby wanted to ride her bike.

"Will I be sick forever?"

On Jeff staying up with her in the middle of the night:
"Daddy, you need to get some sleep too." He was "sleeping" in the chair in the living room while she was on the couch.
