Meeting big brother Jake!
Well, it looks like we may very well be checking out by tomorrow afternoon. Because of that, Leigh Ann's parents went ahead and brought Jacob to the hospital this evening to meet his new baby brother. We were worried about how he would adjust to the new competition for Mama and Dada's attentions. To our immense relief, he came walking into the hospital room asking "Where baby Owen?" He showed quite a bit of interest in the baby - obviously he wasn't quite as excited as the rest of us, but that was partly due to the fact that he could see lots of trees and cars from our window, which overlooks the Columbus city skyline.
On his ride home, Leigh Ann's mom called to tell us that he was repeatedly singing "baby Owen" to the tune of the Jeopardy theme song (yes, my son is a nerd! He enjoys watching Jeopardy with me, and will "sing" along with the tune during final jeopardy). So far so good!
