This morning at 3:15 a.m. Gus got his biggest present yet - a lifelong friend. Cousin Edward was born at a healthy (shall we say huge?) 9 pounds and 3 ounces. Mom (Jacob's sister Leah) and babe are well and resting and we hope the same is true for Andy, the proud new father!
It's been a nailbiter of a day and night for us (Leah went into labor early Wednesday morning), I must have nursed Gus about a dozen times just because I was restless and felt he "needed me" all the while thinking and praying for a good delivery.
This morning Gus was showing off some residual tension, as he decided to give the rocking chair a "taste test"
We are so excited!
