I’ve finally decided it’s time to introduce the newest member of our family! (after all today he is seven weeks old!)
Jacob was born on August 2, at 11:33pm in a birthing center. He’s the only one of my kids not born at home, but also the only one born in the water. I liked the water birth.
My total labor time as just over 4 hours. Jacob weighed 8lb 15oz and was 22 inches long.
Here he is – brand new!
We took him home about an hour after he was born, so when the other kids woke up they had a new baby to meet and hold.
Poor Jacob actually remained nameless for the first 10 days of his life, well actually he had several temporary names: Lincoln, Peter, Micheal, Nathaniel, and McKay, but in the end we decided Jacob Heber fit him best. I usually call him Jacob, but Clark and the kids mostly call him Heber.
Here is little Heber getting a kiss from his sister.
