My Denver Visit

Kara called on Monday (June 20) with the news that Blake David Decker was born.  I flew out that evening to Denver to see him and help out.  Luke picked me up and took me straight to the hospital to stay the night with Kara, while Luke went home with Jacob.  Wednesday I went home and watched Jacob and we picked Kara and Blake up at the hospital. 
Blake looks so small in his car seat even though he weighed 8 lbs 9oz when he was born. He is ready to go home!

Luke's parents were here last weekend and took this picture in Kara's back yard.

 Jacob is getting more used to me now, and we've done things like gone to the park, the library, blown bubbles, gone on walks and played with his cars.

He will be a good big brother.

Kara is doing well.  She's up and about already after one week and we've done some errands together.  I think she'll do great with the two boys

Here's the family in front of the Denver Temple (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)

Blake is on the blanket I crocheted for him.

Blake is so cute!!  As my Italian friend said, seeing his picture, "e bellissimo sembra fatto di zucchero".  (He's so beautiful he seems to be made of sugar.")

Baby Blake

Kara had baby Blake David on Monday.  She and Luke went to the hospital at 1:00 pm, and he was born at 2:20 pm.  Good work, Kara!

Blake weighed 8 pounds 9 ounces, and is healthy and seems happy.
I flew in to Denver that evening and was able to stay with Kara until she was discharged Wednesday morning.

                                           Big brother Jacob had been talking for awhile about baby brother.

What sweetie pies!!
