It's a boy!

[ #17627 ]
My newest nephew, Jacob Darrell Wallace, was born this morning. He weighed in at 8lbs 8oz, and is 21.5 inches long.

I tried very hard to will him to be a leap year baby*, but apparently he was too anxious to get going to wait that long. :)

* - The predominant view in my family was that being born on 2/29 would be a bad thing. I, however, think otherwise. When Jacob is 60 and wants to know why he can't tell people it's his 15th birthday, I (or my ghostly spirit, as the case will probably be) will let him know I did the best I could.

  • I also became an uncle to a boy named Jacob in this past year, on July 17 (I /think/!) My birthday is July 20, and I was hoping he could stick it out, but it didn't work out. Stupid kids. Back when I was a foetus, we didn't disappoint our elders like that.
