Jacob Vincent Contreras is IN THE HOUSE!!!

Today is a GREAT day for the Contreras family regardless of what time zone we may be in!!!

Vanessa Contreras on Saturday

It was St. Patrick's Day and she was very pregnant and ready to pop, it was here Due Date afterall. The baby would be late, but not by much as it turned out.

Jacob Vincent Contreras

I was awakened in the wee hours of Monday morning Swiss time with the fantastic news that little Jacob had finally arrived on Sunday California time.

Jacob's vital statistics were 7 lbs. 13 ozs and 1 foot 10 inches tall or 22 inches long if you prefer.

For all of our friends in Italy, Sweden and Switzerland, he was 3.54 kilos and 55.88 centimeters at birth.

He officially entered the world at 4:30 p.m. (16:30), California time, on Sunday, March 18, 2012. That was 2:30 a.m. Monday, Swiss time.

He entered our hearts months ago.

Jacob and Vanessa

It appears that all went well for both of them during the delivery.

Grandma Laurie and Jacob

New father Mike Contreras

Congratulations, I couldn't be happier.

Well actually, I will be happier this Summer when I get to hold Jacob for the first time and see Kevin again as well.

Thank God for the internet and modern communications technology.

"What a BEAUTIFUL day to be
an American Grandfather again!"
