Happy New Year! Liam Wallace was born on December 27, 2011 at 2:02 p.m. Weighing in at 7 pounds 12 ounces and measuring 20.5 inches, he entered the world crying and demonstrating his lung strength! This was a good thing to hear, as he managed to make the delivery interesting by not tolerating pushing well. More on that later, but I'm already so late in posting this announcement I thought I'd get the basic news out there and include the requisite photos! I've also updated the blog so that there's a new photo album of photos from the first week (and more albums will be added as well!).
We all came home from the hospital on the 29th and are settled in well here, thanks in large part to my parents who have been tons of help! Harley Sue hasn't quite decided what to make of Liam...the first day she sniffed him from head to toe and then basically ignored him. By day two, she realized that this kid wasn't leaving, and she started to be a bit more needy and jealous. She seems to not mind Liam though, so that's a good start!
Liam already has another nickname thank to his oldest cousin, who finds "Liam" a bit hard to say at 3 years of age...it comes out sounding more like "Baby Lamb" than "Baby Liam", which is pretty darn cute. Liam himself is pretty darn cute, and is a really good baby (at least so far). Not only does he have his mom and dad wrapped around his little fingers, I think you can probably add a number of other relatives to that list too! We are so blessed and so fortunate and I can't wait to see what 2012 brings in our Adventures With Baby Z.
