Welcome to the world (FINALLY) Jackson Grant Long! He arrived 5 days late, 9/8 11:56pm weighing 9 lbs 12 oz and 21 ¾ inches long! We did not know the gender, so HIS arrival was a huge surprise to us! Nate is through the roof with excitement! He finally has a SON!! It is so precious to see them bonding with each other already! Nate is already planning their father/son camping trips out west!
Life has been extremely busy adjusting to life with a newborn and a 2& ¾ yr old toddler! Sophia is an awesome big sister and loves her little brother to pieces. Initially she was pretty disappointed Jackson wasn’t a girl, but she snapped out of that in a few days. She loves to help with diaper changes, baths, and burping! She always wants brother to be AWAKE – which doesn’t make mommy very happy! Ha! It does come in handy when he is sleepy during feedings though!
I have been testing out the Woombie and will be doing a blog review on it in the near future!! Stay tuned!
Here are a few pictures ….
