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!
