Excuse Me, Please, I Have An Announcement!

OK, I know you've all been waiting with baited breath to hear (and see pictures) of baby Jacob. Well, he finally made his arrival just this morning at 6:01 AM ... weighing in at 9.56 lbs, 21-1/2 inches long, lots of dark hair and a very rosy complection. The perfect picture of a delicious baby if ever I've seen one! Oh, I did mention pictures, but you'll have to wait with that baited breath just a few more days cuuuzzzzz I don't get hooked up to the Internet until next Monday or Tuesday afternoon. Mommy and Daddy are doing fine, but a wee bit exhausted. Poor Mommy started labor late Tuesday night, arrived at the hospital Wednesday afternoon, and delivered the little fellow Thursday morning (today). She's a bit wiped out from the experience, and will spend the night with baby at the hospital. I tried to stay with her until Jacob was born, but alas, I had to scoot home to catch 1-1/2 hrs sleep and get Nathan on the bus at 7 this morning.

So, just put up with my library visits a bit longer (sorry no pics yet) ... life has been very exciting the past few days, weeks, and year! I'll try to visit your blogs ... I have about 20 minutes on my timer :)!

Congratualations Grandma! I dropped by from Mrs Darling's site. When I read your comment, I thought you were someone else. So...I visited your blog and voila! Here I am!

Seriously, what caught my eye was the building of your house. I briefly visited your other site, long enough though to see that you had a picture of a white Gemini range-I just got a black one in Dec. I was curious where in Idaho you built? My husband & I will be retiring in *8 more years and we're looking at land in Montana, Wyoming & Idaho, (southeastern part). We plan to build a log cabin, Lord willing.

How is Uncle Little Gift taking it Gramma Mac?

I bet he is just thrilled...You better get that baby Jacob a little yellow ball and dress him a tiny flannel nightie that has a picture of a little boy on a horse, and buy for Nathan a little yellow car with fish pictures all over it's shiny hood!!!

Have a great weekend with those two kids and the "Dawg"!

Congratulations, Mrs. Mac! Tell Jacob hello for me too.
Be sure to tell the Mom to give him ice cream when he is crying out in public. That will get him happy again. [That's my standard advice for all the new baby's mothers and grandmas.]
