Hello Simon!

SimonAt 3:21 this afternoon, I had this bundle of joy in my arms.  Well, this picture was taken a little later, but you know what I mean.  Yes, I am a proud mama again and so is Daddy over here (he’s been holding him more than me *grin*).

Would anyone like to meet Simon?

The new monkey came in at 8lbs 3oz and was a whopping 20.5 inches long.  Which means, we definitely have a winner from the Baby Pool.  Sara M, from Sara’s Urban Fantasy Blog, nailed all the information on the head.  I think Sara has some psychic ability.  *grin*  Sara, you won the second gift card…send me an email as to where you would like it to (with the one caveat that I can buy it online) and I’ll get it sent out to you.

With Simon’s arrival, this means I will definitely be taking a few days off.  While I’m gone, make sure you come back for these great author visits:

And don’t forget these amazing authors who have stopped by LE and are giving away some fabulous books.

About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. Congratulations, Jackie and Jesse! Hi, Simon! And Ian, you’ll love having a brother. My kids do.

    Rest up, Jackie. The roller coaster ride is just beginning. : )

  2. Congratulations! I love the picture. It reminds me of the quote “A new baby is like the beginning of all things — wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.”

  3. I choose yesterday b/c it’s my mom’s birthday, and guess the weight b/c my brother was also born in August and he was a large baby. I guess I’m a tiny bit psychic. And I’m sending the e-mail now.

    Congrats on the new edition! He’s adorable (and so is the little hat)!

  4. I’m so happy for you and Jesse! Simon is absolutely precious! I hope you guys are doing well and that you have a quick and easy recovery from labor! :)

  5. Congratultaions Jackie! He looks adorable and you look great too (so rested and happy, I know, I doubt you are rested, but at least you look great on the photo which is a bonus as you’ll look at this photo a few times in the coming years ;-p)

    Anyway congrats again, he is toon cute! Wishing you and your family lots of joy and happiness with lil’ Simon :-)

    • Thanks everyone! Simon is definitely a keeper. Especially if he stays as calm as he has been the last 36 hours or so. He’s done nothing but sleep which has allowed me to rest more than I thought I would. *grin*

  6. Congrats Jackie! so sorry on the late post! I’m running behind on catching up on posts period and had not seen the news until mentioned in Carolyn’s contest/interview.

    He is adorable!! Hope you and your new bundle (and the rest of the family) is doing well.
