Last night at 8:01, after 16 hours of labour, we welcomed Jakob Ethan to the world! He weighed in at 7 lbs, 4 oz and is 19 inches long. He's absolutely gorgeous and is in the good books with Mom for sleeping 5.5 hours last night straight.
Feel free to give us a call and come by and see him - we came home last night at 11:00.
I'm feeling great considering I went through the most intense pain of my life ... but, honestly, we can only thank God SO much for the greatness of His gift of Jakob, the blessing of a healthy baby, and an uncomplicated labour.
