Welcome Jacob Liam Welsch

Today we give a big shout out and welcome to the world our new nephew - the adorable Jacob Liam, born yesterday afternoon. He weighed in at a whopping 8lbs 12oz; 20.5 inches long. A fellow Taurus, it's no wonder he's apparently a sweet, great baby and champ feeder and sleeper. Both baby and mom (my sister Jen) are doing well. Although Jen did mention that her epidural wore off which wasn't pleasant to say the least! I'll be heading down to Dallas to meet the little man on Sunday (Mother's Day) and can't wait! Lil' Weezie  looks forward to making his/her debut, coming out to play in around 184 days and having an older cousin so close in age. We thought we'd refer to Jacob Liam as Texas Jake as he is our second nephew named Jacob following three-year old Jacob Phillip Owen (Nathan and Robyn's son) now aka Aussie Jakey. Texas Jake is the first nephew on my side of the family and our fourth overall joining our niece Emma Kate and nephews Jacob Phillip and Archer Maxwell on the Owen side in Oz. Big congrats to Jen and Freddie!
