My dad found a college called Newman College recently. I think he said it is a small college in Kansas. Our last name is Newman so he bought a onesie and a shirt for Brandon. The mascot at Newman College is the Jets so my dad was extra excited to buy the clothes for Brandon since it would mean he would have some Jets clothes to wear (my dad is a huge fan of the Jets). Since the Steelers are out of the playoffs and the Jets are still in we decided that Brandon could wear his Newman Jets onesie on Sunday to support Grandpa Jacobs' favorite team. And it seemed to work since they won.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
