Jake Casey is here!!



Precious sleeping baby

Jake Casey Rice born 8-29-14

Wrapped up in the swaddle I left for him.

Wrapped up in the swaddle I left for him.

Since I knew I wouldn’t be there for the birth I had left the swaddle blanket and told them they had to wrap him in it and tell him Nana loved him and was giving him a hug:-)  Can’t wait to hold this sweet baby next weekend!!

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.14I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17How precious to me are your thoughts,a God! How vast is the sum of them! 18Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.”  Psalms 139 13-18

He arrived at 3:27 am on Aug 29th weighing 8 lbs and 20 3/4 inches long. He and his mom and dad seem to all be doing well. Jake Casey Rice is the 5th Jake in this Rice linage.  There was Jake Raymond, Jake William, Ernie Jake, Jake Robert and now Jake Casey.  From the pics I have seen he looks a lot like his daddy did when he was born, but will reserve final say until I see him in person.  He looks awfully precious to me.  Gramps seems a little proud right now too!

I am thankful to God and giving Him all praise for this new addition to our family!

    Our Father always honors our obedience which sometimes takes us far away from those we love!! Congratulations to you and to Ernie, what a heritage of love and service you are creating for your newest generation!!! We love you both, and what a welcome to Texas celebration awaits you both.

    What a sweetie! I know you can’t wait to snuggle with him. Wish we were closer and could see him! Will be praying for the new parents.

    Gramps and Nana , wait until you hold that blessing … grandparenthood will hit you in the heart with so much love …. you’ll wonder how did you get through life without him. Proud he is carrying on the Jake lineage … that is so important these days. Love, Hugs, and Happiness to you both, Papa and Granny Wood aka Dewayne and Barbara Jane Wood

    Congrats! So happy for you. Grandkids are such a blessing. Don’t understand how you can love someone so much. God is good. On another side – FBC Smiley has already gotten over $500 toward your peanut butter request. We are going to leave it open one more week. Hallelujah! Linda and Earl
