Number Six!!!

I have finally created my own blog. I have been a bit of a blog stalker in the recent past and thought that it was time for me to play fair and let the world read about us. We are very interesting.

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!

Good work, you are getting good at this whole blog thing. . . . now only if you could just move back . . . start working on that okay.

I am sooooo excited for your blog! BUT you still have to play fair and update it regularly! Your family is so cute, I love all your kids no socks and all (I would have never noticed without you saying it). I can't wait till we live by each other again and don't have to look at each other kids on the computer!

O.k. so a big thanks to you for talking me through the picture posting stage. The kidlets are darling and the fact that they threw caution to the wind and went sockless is fantastic!

Love the photos with the whole hospital scene-what a darling babe and I am so impressed with the creativity and sewing skills of the mother on the take-home ensemble!! Thanks, too, for helping kthom with the picture posting and so now she can help her so unsavvy sister...

Hey! I am so glad you started a blog! Post often, okay! We need to get ours going, but seeing how I don't know how to do anything on a computer, I have to convince Brett to help me, he is being reluctant.
I can't wait to hold that baby!! He looks so much like a Kern in those pics! Love ya, Bekie

I was so happy to find out that you finally have a blog and I am really excited about it. We miss you and the kids so much and now we will be able to see what is happening in your life. Jeffrey is the cuties little boy.
