Introducing Jacob Marshall Gleckler


The Gleckler Family
September 20th 12:55 am, Jacob was born. He is 6lbs 3 ounces, is 21.5 inches long, is totally healthy. Kara is going great, she has been up walking around all day. Both will be coming home Sunday moring, just in time to get settled for my parents arriving on Monday. He seems really easy going, sleeps a lot, and poops even more. Here are the pictures:

Wow! I didn't even know you were pregnant, I just saw a comment of yours on the Smith's blog. CONGRATULATIONS!!! He is a very handsome little man, I am sure you two make wonderful parents.

We just found out that we are having another baby girl (due Valentine's Day), we are really excited!

p.s. glad to hear that Erich is alright after that motorcycling incident - I don't think we'll take you up on the good deal :-)
