Jacob Has Arrived

At 10:49 am on November 14th, Jacob Mcandless Hall made his entry into this world.  Jacob weighed in at a whopping 8-1/2 lbs. and was 21 inches long.  He looks huge to me, although his mom thought he looked pretty tiny.  My largest baby was 6lbs.4 oz. and the twins only weighed 3 lb.4 oz.  So you can understand why he looked so big to me.  As you can see, he has a lot of dark hair, and his hands are larger than the girls' were. But he has beautiful, long, slender fingers.

This is a more becoming photo.  Here, he's had his first bath and is sleeping peacefully.

You can see how happy and proud his big sister is.  Everytime he cried, she told Kristin that he wanted down to play with her.  Kris told her that Jake couldn't get down because he can't walk yet.  Izzy simply replied that she could teach him to "scootch" like Bubby does.

And she didn't quite understand why he wouldn't eat crackers with her.

In case you're wondering about his name, George, his dad and my husband are all John Wayne fans.  Jacob McCandless was the name of John Wayne's character in the movie Big Jake.  Kris and George loved the name but decided to spell it without the double "C".

And one final photo of me with both of my grandsons.  Aren't they the best?  I'm definitely one very proud and happy Grammy.  Welcome, Jacob.  Glad to have you as part of the family,

I hope he learns to "scooch" soon for Izzy's

So cute and new babies are the best!

Very sweet...I'm glad he's here and all is well. (I'm one who had big babies....8 lbs. 12 oz. and 8 lbs. 13 oz.....and he certainly looks in that range to me.) I think Izzy will need close watching as she might have unique ideas of how she will "help" with her brother!!!
