    3. What kind of life would a Yaro have?

      Oh yeah, a sublime one.

      You can't go wrong, Darla.

      Congratulations!

  7. He is Jacob and he is perfect, and we could not be happier.

    If someone could just bring me some wine, it'd be a perfect day...

    Much love,
    Darla

    PS: Les, I got your text...I love you...

    1. Beer has lots of B-vitamins, if you're nursing.

    2. What Stella said. Be sure it's good beer. For you, not for the baby.

    1. Happy belated birthday! Hey, you get a new job (and the opportunity to tell your old one(s) where to go) (more or less) for your birthday. Pretty nice!

  18. What lovely news! Congratulations, Darla and hubby! And welcome to Jacob (you picked your parents well, kid).

  19. Congrats to mom, dad and most of all, baby Jacob.

    Hang on for the wildest ride imaginable. And even though it's impossible to believe in the earliest sleepless (and clueless) nights and days: don't blink. He'll be taller than you, smarter than you and out of the house and navigating the world before you know it.

    If our daughter had been a boy, Jacob would have been her name. Later, as a young adult she would rescue a Weimaraner named...you guessed it...Jacob.

    Life is funny sometimes.

    Have fun!
