Our friends Amanda and Joe welcomed their adorable baby, Jake Grayson Balice, early yesterday morning. They weren't expecting him until Thursday, but Jake decided to make a very exciting entrance at 4:03am on Monday, September 21 (8 lbs, 4 oz, 21 inches). You can check out the link to "Baby Balice Blog" on the side of my blog for their delivery story - I'll spare you the wild details. Let's just say that, statistically speaking, Jake had a very rare type of birth! Amanda told me not to post any pictures of her, but I couldn't resist putting a few here...so hopefully she won't be too mad at me!
Geoff and I got to meet him yesterday afternoon, and he's absolutely precious! He looks a lot like his daddy, but has his mommy's nose, mouth, and chin. Geoff and I left the hospital feeling very excited about meeting our baby in 5 months (my due date is exactly 5 months from Jake's birthday). But I was definitely feeling like there's a lot to do in a short amount of time (I know it's going to fly by!). Geoff, of course, isn't worried at all! Apparently he doesn't live in the same messy, cluttered home that I live in.
We've got a little more than 2 weeks left until we find out the sex of our baby. My sister-in-law, Jen, has decided that she's getting a nephew. We'll just have to wait and see!
