We are excited to announce our newest addition to the C&C Jones Family. Meijke (pronounced Micah) came to us on June 14th at 10:31 pm. She was 9 lbs. 13 oz. and 21.5 inches long. She has super long fingers and toes and actually had hair!
D&R were so excited to hold her and are adjusting well. D ran into the hospital room and said, "Good job pushing out baby Meijke, Mom." When we brought her home, he was fascinated with her umbilical cord, and can now tell you about it himself. He even remembers what it is called :) We hope he also remembers that he can't "pull it out."
R looked at Baby M skeptically at first, but then excitedly said, "Baby Meijke!" At that point, she wanted to hold her right away. At home, she'll run into our room in the morning and look at Baby M in the crib. She also often tells me what is happening, like "Baby Meijke crying."
Here are some pictures of the experience. We're so enjoying a third baby, and feel blessed to have her in our family.
We are also glad for the many friends and family who are supporting us during this time. Thank you!!!
We are fortunate to have Candace back from Costa Rica (as of last night) and have enjoyed seeing her again. Also, my cousin Loyd came in from UT and has been a tremendous help! He'll do the dishes, help make sure dinner is ready, play with the kids and hold baby M. While I'm missing my Mom, I'm so grateful for Loyd being here and his constant support. He'll be a great dad one day!
