Our lives were changed forever the night of February 28, 2013 at 7:48pm. Our perfect and precious boy, Jacob Paul, came into the world.
7lbs. 10oz. and 19.5 inches of beautiful, healthy and ours.
Even with some complications, everything that I had hoped, prayed and dreamed for came true.
Like holding my healthy, thriving baby shortly after he was born.
My Robin stayed with me until Todd arrived.
Todd made it in from North Dakota literally half an hour before my c-section. The greatest desire of my heart was that he wouldn't miss it - and God brought him home just in the nick of time. God always seems to be right on time even when we think He's running late.
My grandparents were some of our first visitors. Jacob carries my Poppy's name as his middle name - his heritage and legacy will be lived out and remembered for always.
And going home day was the best.
And just a sneak preview of a few newborn shots that my sister-in-law took for us.
There will be much, much more to share in the coming days. For now, I'm recovering and healing and enjoying the precious firsts with our son.
