Liam's Early Arrival

well.... he came!!!.... a whole 4 weeks early and totally unexpected!
Liam was born on sept. 7th at 1:02 pm, weighing in at 5 lbs. 14 oz.




my water broke at 5:00 am and there were no indications that I was close to delivering, what a shock.....especially since Ruby came TEN days late
and even then they had to start me....

Liam's cousin Courtney (born 1 week prior) came to visit him in the hospital...he was probably jealous when she took off to earth that he couldn't wait another month to get here

um...can you say.....MARTY..........i swear no kids will ever look like me

Marty and my mom made signs to welcome us back....


Liam is doing well though, he had some jaundice issues, but they are now resolved after spending some days in the 'fake n bake' bed




labor was tons easier than the first time, thank goodness, and Ruby is coping well and has learned to accept and love her 'baby brother' (the first day she totally ignored him)....

WE SURE DO LOVE OUR NEW ADDITION!!

Marty & Mindy,

I am so longing to put that baby in my arms. At least while he doesn't know to be mean to me like Ruby is. Oh, Ruby, I love you still you little monkey. Guess what, Liam doesn't look anything like Marty's baby pictures. He definately looks like an Anderton to me. I think the Anderton Genes are more powerful than the Wright ones. Mindy, you look great for someone that hasn't slept for a millenium. I love you all and miss you tons. Love gma Diane

I can't believe that Liam couldn't wait until my birthday to be born. And yes I agree, he looks like a Wright. Some of his pictures remind me of some of my kids. But I'm sure as he grows will see some Anderton in him. We are very excited for you guys.

You have been on my mind all week, so I decided to check out your blog, and now I know why! Congratulations on Liam! He weighs the same as my son Trent did. Trent's bum was so small he could sit in the palm of your hand and have room left over. You look so wonderful, all of you! I miss you!
