Jacob Robert Nelson is here! We scheduled our c-section for September 10th. We were told to arrive at the hospital at 5:30 am the day of the surgery. Everything went perfectly! The nurses and doctors at the hospital were amazing and made me so comfortable. Jacob was born at 7:57 am. The nurses cleaned him off and brought him to me and Robert. I was still pretty numb but the nurse was still able to lay him on my chest so I could see him. I remember thinking that he had big lips but it could have been from them cleaning him off and suctioning his mouth. He is so handsome. He has darker hair but other than that, he looks just like Matthew did! He weighed 6lbs14.6oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. I was worried that I could not love anything like I love Matthew but I can!
We have been home a week and it has been okay so far. Jacob likes to eat so he wakes up a lot at night and then looks at me with wide open eyes like he is ready to play. We have to work on getting him on a different schedule. I'm exhausted. 
Matthew is a great big brother. He loves Jacob. He always wants to hold him and hug him. Some days I think he gets a little jealous but it is a huge adjustment for everyone. 
I feel like the luckiest woman in the world. I have an amazing husband and two handsome boys! 
My pictures are a little out of order...
