baby jacob

August 23, 2010


On Saturday Matthew and I went down to San Diego to see his new nephew! His sister Melissa gave birth to the most precious little boy on August 10th. His name is Jacob Christian.




Babies are so sweet and darling. I haven't held a newborn in sooo long. I'm thinking years, as in I was under 10. I wasn't worried because if I did it then I knew I could do it now. Nevertheless, as soon as Melissa handed him to me I'll admit I got a little nervous. Of course everything was fine, there were just a few nerves when I realized how tiny and delicate he was! I'm definitely looking forward to being a mom one day although that's far far away.

  2. HE IS SO SWEET! I love his hair! Makes him look older and wiser than 2 weeks, haha. :) I loooooove babies, and babysit a lot so I get to hold newborns frequently. There is nothing like it--they are so teeny and vulnerable and precious! And the newborn smell is to die for. :) Congrats on the new nephew!!

  4. He is really lovely, especially in the last picture! Every time there's a newborn in my family, when I go to see him/her I get a little nervous too...so I don't usually hold them, I'm too afraid I'd let them fall -__-'
    Hugs!

  8. He is so sweet! I have held SO many babies & was still a little nervous/cautious picking up Jude even though Logan was that tiny less than 2 years ago! I love babies and can't wait to be a mom (one day).

    I love his expression when he's in your arms :)
