4th time’s a charm
Just popping in to introduce y’all to a little someone.
Actually, he’s not that little.
Clocking in just shy of 9 pounds and pulling some memorable shenanigans during 2+ weeks of prodromal labor plus 13 hours of the real thing, I’d like to introduce you to my newest little son.
Luke Maximilian Uebbing, born at 2:19 pm on August 14th, the feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe. 8 lbs 15.5 oz 21 inches and devastatingly handsome with the now-familiar blue eyed+blonde hair combo. He is a wonderful, wonderful baby who enjoys nursing, sleeping, and making occasional guinea pig noises. He has cried 4 times thus far in his life, each corresponding with actual drawing of his blood, so I think he’s either real chill or real tough. What a combo.
We’re both healthy and happy and can’t wait to get home to a real bed without overnight visitors and vital checks. So, ahem, turns out I still don’t like lingering at hotel hospital.
Though the ice is top quality. And we’ve had an endless string of amazing nurses, including a long-lost friend from high school who popped in as I was nearing completion and stuck around for the main event, because nothing says “let’s catch up” like a front row seat to childbirth.
You guys, I can’t wait to tell you the whole story, but I’m closing in on scary levels of sleep deprivation. Luke, on the other hand, is blissfully napping between nursing sessions and just generally being an amazing baby. Also, he has a faux hawk. That’s 4 for 4 on the heartburn-to-hollywood-mane ratio scale.
St. Luke, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and Mother Mary, pray for us!
Congratulations on his safe arrival!! So gorgeous and love the name. What a blessed feast day to share!
Congratulations again, Jenny! He is absolutely beautiful and I just love his name! Three boys and a girl is such a fun combination…almost as much as four boys and a girl around here, hah!
Yay! What a cutie!!! I hope you are able to get some sleep/help soon. Post more pictures when you are able. There are never enough baby pictures. 🙂
Beautiful! I love his name. I have three boys and a girl too – it’s a blast.
Congratulations & God bless all of you.
Welcome little one.
Wow!!! Congratulations! He is absolutely beautiful! As a mom of all girls I stand in awe of 3 boys! 🙂 Many blessings!

Oh my, sweet baby. He is perfect! Great job, Jenny!! Praying you get some sleep 🙂
What a beautiful family! Looking forward to all the baby pics. And I really do mean *all*!
Welcome, Luke! Way to go, Jenny! Congrats Uebbing Fam! God bless you all as you adjust to being a family of 6!
You were right, when you said the baby looked like a boy in one of your ultrasound! Congratulations, I bet your little girl is very excited to have a baby around! We have three girls and one boy, just the reverse!
Congrats!! But 2 weeks of prodromal and then still 13 hours of real? No fair. I had my third daughter (5 total) yesterday and am excited about our birthday twins. Plus you must have some good insight into handling another kid. I hope. I have no plan.
Congratulations! What a beautiful baby boy! Love his name.
Yay! He’s beautiful; a great addition to a lovely family. Blessings!
Congrats! I love the name. He is a wonderful addition to your beautiful family! 🙂
He’s so beautiful!!!
Congrats, Jenny and family!! He’s beautiful 🙂
Yay! Been checking in all week… and he’s here! And he is SO CUTE! Looking forward to reading about his arrival! And remember, all these comments will be here forever. So just go to sleep.
Congratulations! He’s so beautiful.
Congratulations!! He is adorable! My (only) son is Luke, obviously big fan of the name!
Congratulations! What a beautiful family.
