This post will be quick because I have more newborn snuggling to do, but I just wanted to let you guys know that my sister-in-law gave birth to a beautiful baby boy yesterday morning at 10:44 a.m.
Unfortunately, the 3-5 inches of snow we were supposed to get on Wednesday turned into 20. Yes, we got a record snowfall the very day we were planning to drive to Little Rock to experience our nephew’s birth.
We missed the birth, but luckily we were able to make it out of town by noon Thursday. We spent all morning shoveling (a.k.a. desperately scraping at two feet of snow with the lids of rubbermaid storage containers because we’re the kind of people who apparently don’t own a shovel) our driveway and hoping the roads were drivable.
The entire state got blasted with the same snowstorm, so the drive was really beautiful, albeit a little scary. We made it to the hospital by 4 and fell instantly in love.
He’s pretty perfect.
Both mommy and daddy are doing really well.
Can you believe this is the face of a woman who had just given birth 6 hours ago?
Oh, those feet.
I’m totally his favorite (and okay, maybe only) aunt.
How cute is Uncle Jacob?
Many, many, many more photos coming soon!
