Had to post this picture

This is Graham when he was about 2 weeks. Very similar to the top picture of Colin below. Am I going to have clones? The differences are their hairlines, Colin's doesn't go to a V; and Colin's eyes aren't as big. I'm very curious to see what his eye color will be. Graham's was a surprise because mine are brown and Jon's are green. He got his blue eyes from both our fathers. So we'll see what happens with Colin's- I have no idea. Don't ya just love genetics?!

Colin Jacob

Yeah! Boy #2 is here. Sorry it's taken me so long to post- I finally have a minute. He was born on January 7 at 3:30 am. He weighed 6 lbs. 7 oz. and 19 inches long. First thing I looked at was his hands... he does NOT have Jon and Graham's hands. I was induced Wednesday afternoon so it seemed like it took FOREVER. Even with my woes of the epidural and spinal headaches the first time around I had another one and this one was MUCH better. Overall, the delivery was quite different than Graham's, which was better.
We are now home and doing well. Graham decided he will now be a part of the "Terrible 2" stage, so that's been fun. Potty training is no where in sight so purchasing diapers has now become like a shopping hobby. Jon is gone most all day and all night whether he is working at Olive Garden, going to Grad School, or interning. I am SO looking forward to the day when my husband comes home at 5 and he is home all weekend. It'll be a whole new life!
So as many of you know we could not come up with a name. So here's the story...we were down to Colin and Lucas (and Jon tried to submit Ender into that, but I vetoed). I was ok with either name so we put the decision to the BCS game. I was for Texas and am mad at Colt McCoy. My name would've been Lucas Thoman (my maiden name). We have no boys to carry on the name in my family so I was sad by that. So Jon won and his name became Colin Jacob. It's still sometimes wierd to call him that, but it's growing on me. Nothing else seems to fit better. So of course being from Vegas we had to have a story like that.
So here he tiny!!!
