Our big news is that we have a new baby!
Jeffrey Allen Kern
was born onFebruary 4 at 11:46 am. He was 7 lb. 10 oz and was 19 in long. He is our biggest baby, complete with chub on his fanny. This is a big deal, as many of our children have had none. He has a nice head of hair and is a champion nurser. He is an absolute angel!!!
This has been the first time that it has been easier to have the baby on the outside than it is on the inside. I think Heavenly Father makes the last few weeks so MISERABLE that you actually look forward to having the baby come out, whatever way that is. For us, it was c-section #5. I have found that each one has gotten progressively better and now, a week later I feel like a million bucks! This is me getting to "hold" Jeffrey for the first time. It was more like a quick squeeze, but I will take it!
Here they all are! Jessica, Anna, Reese, Maya (green jacket), Bella (pink jacket) and baby Jeff! Notice the tennis shoes with no socks--kids need moms at home.
And here is the love of my life! Ben is such a wonderful father who loves his family so very much. I love to see him with our children. He is so big and strong, yet so tender and kind. I am so happy that he is mine!
