Jake arrived on the 23rd at 3:14 AM. We went to the hospital on the 22nd about 4:30 but he delayed his arrival for a few hours. My theory is he was hibernating for the winter as he doesn't like the cold- just like me. Jake and Mom came home from the hospital on Christmas Eve and are doing great. I also made it through without having smelling salt administered or being carried out on a gurney.
Jake has been busy being passed around from Aunts, Uncles, Grandma, Grandpa, Cousins, Mom, adopted aunts & uncles- and every once in a while Dad gets a turn. It's a good thing he's not spoiled... He even had several Christmas presents given to him. He told me his favorite was a mobile that will hang above his crib. Yes it's a Raiders mobile. He's proud to be the newest member of the Raider Nation! He'll have good instruction and already has a good start on apparel and blankets.
Janna and I are really thankful and greatful for such great family and friends that have helped us so much get ready for his arrival. There is no way we would have been ready or able without. We cannot THANK everyone enough or be able to express our gratitude enough! We have been blessed!!
