Introducing Henry

At 4:31 on April 28th, we welcomed the newest member of the family into the world!  Henry David Jacobs decided to come on his own (a Jacobs kid first!).  It was pretty fast as I was only in the hospital for 5 hours before he was here.  Since I wasn't induced this time, I didn't get the epidural right away like with the other 3.  Let's just say - contractions HURT!!!!!  I was shocked at how insanely painful it was.  (Duh.  It's labor, I know.  But still.  It was eye-opening.)  I ended up getting a spinal tap that wore off just as I reached 10 cm and he was pretty much ready to come.  Yipe.
Henry weighed 9 lbs 5 oz and was 23 inches long.  For being such a big guy, he sure is a little guy!

We are just in love with this little guy!  He is sweet as pie and definitely looks like a member of the family.

I was so relieved it was all over, and that we had our sweetie finally.

Andrew loves little "Bite-Size" (as he wanted to call him) and is happy to be a big brother once again.  He loves to hold and take care of his baby.

Charlie wanted to hold him for about 4 seconds, but does love to give him kisses on the head and gently pat his tummy.

Emily said he was "great" and liked saying hi to him from across the room.

The Six of Us!

Andrew let the baby know that when he was bigger, like 5, he could do a lot more things like him.

All my boys.  I love this picture.

These two were mostly just excited to eat cups of ice.


There's a reason I keep accidently calling him Charlie.  He looks SO much like his big brother.

Being born is hard work!

What we did for 2 days straight.

Because crying baby pictures make me laugh for some reason.
Welcome to the world, Big Hal.  We sure love you.

Such a special thing, a newborn baby, and meeting them for the first time. He looks great, you look great, and I hope everything is going well so far.
