Welcome Baby Jones!

Well so far, Erin managed to have a fantastic labor and delivery, give birth to a cutie pie, and still look fabulous moments after he was born. I’d say things are going well, and this video clip is proof!

Baby Jones was born yesterday at 7:21 p.m., weighing 7 lbs, 3 oz and 19 and 3/4 inches long. I think it’s kind of cool that both Camille and Erin weighed 7 lbs, 3 oz at birth, and Camille was 19 inches long.
He’s a really cute and sweet baby. So far he seems to spend much of his day like this:
But also a good bit of the day with his eyes open, looking around:
Camille thinks her new baby cousin is very interesting. She likes to point out his nose, eyes, mouth, hair, chin and cheeks, and does not like it when he cries. He hasn’t been crying much at all, but when he does, she says, “Baby crying!” in a sad voice like she wants us to fix it. Then she usually follows it up with “Baby diaper!” I think she likes watching us change him because she can see so much more of him without the swaddling blanket. Or, maybe she speaks the newborn language, and knows that Jones cried out because he needed a diaper change.
Camille, however, is not fond of sharing her Mama, Daddy or Boo with Baby Jones. She’s fine until one of us picks him up, then she starts crying and sounds so pitiful and rejected. I expected it, but I still hate to think about hurting her feelings. But she’ll calm down if I hold her and Baby Jones at the same time. Although from the look of her frown in this picture, she’s still not really happy about it.
But once she gets over the initial upset, she remembers how cute he is and how fascinating. It wasn’t long before she was waving at him and saying, “Hi Jones.”
I think these two cousins will be just fine, and soon enough, will be fast friends. And that’s a good thing, because Aunt Ginger and Uncle Lee think Mr. Jones is cool, and we look forward to seeing a lot more of him in the years to come.
