I should be sleeping

Jacob Samuel Lucido
9lbs 6 oz
21 1/2 inches
born at 5:50pm on May 7th

It was a great day. Induction went smoothly, I'm a rockstar pusher *ahem* and he was out in about 4 minutes and 5 pushes.

Y'all I can't stop looking at him. I'll get some more pictures but his little profile looks a lot like Sammy :-) His hair is dark with some lightish, reddish undertones, no ginger baby this time. He latched on at his first and second try - so far he's a nursing champ (hopefully I can keep pace with his champness, nursing hurts!).

We are enamored. In love. Amazed. Blessed.

Thank you Jesus!


  1. Yay! I am so glad he is here safe and sound. He is BEAUTIFUL!! I love his name. It is my husbands name and Brighton's middle name. I definitely think he resembles Sammy! You have two handsome boys! Now get some rest. Your going to need it! Congratulations!!! <3

  2. Dave & Melissa - Congrats, congrats, congrats! So thrilled for you!
    Thank you Lord for this blessing you have placed in their hands. Guide them as they seek to raise Jake to know and love you all his life!

  7. Oh my goodness. I am BEYOND HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!!!! What an amazing blessing!! He is beautiful and he was a sweet big boy like my little Finn. (he was 9lb8oz 21.5in) I miss talking with you. I am here to hear about Sammy anytime. Sometimes moments sneak up on you, reminding you of your oldest little man. :)
