This picture was taken .02 seconds after they brought Jacob into the room for the first time. Karen had the camera up and ready to snap, she really didn't want to see him until I had him in hand and she had snapped this picture, figuring she might just pounce on him immediately and never stop crying. Good call babe...

So I snatched up the boy and choked back some tears and whispered private dad/son things in his ear. "Man this is heaven" I was thinkin. I can't tell you what all I was thinking and feelin at the moment I first held my boy, but it was all good!

I did feel like mom should pounce on us and join in on this...

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. "Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!"
Matthew 7:7-11
