Welcome Jacob Elijah!

Friday, December 12 at 1:10 p.m., Jacob Elijah was delivered via c-section. He weighed 9lbs 5oz and was 21 inches long. He is our first grandchild and as you can imagine we are quite taken with him. We saw him last night for the first time.

Jake is doing well. His mother is tired and comfortable but improving each day. Geoff is most pleased and is not leaving Erica or Jacob's sides until they come home probably tomorrow.

Bill and I getting used to all of this and can hardly wait to spend more time with our new grandson.

Oh, Carla! What a little doll baby. So much hair and those chubby little cheeks! Looks like your guys are taking to their new roles as Dad and Grandpa pretty naturally. Congratulations to all. He is a keeper for sure!

He looks so safe in his father's arms.
