Welcome Liam Thomas . 05.20.10

On Thursday, May 20, we welcomed our second son, Liam Thomas, to the world! I had a c-section and he came a week early. Apparently we like to make big boys… he came in at 9lbs 15oz and 22 inches long. (Jay arrived at 10lbs 14oz 2 years ago). Liam had a little trouble breathing at first, so he had to spend some time in NICU. All is well and he is doing great. He is even sleeping 5 1/2 hour stretches at night for mom and dad. Thank you son! Here are some of his first pictures…

Liam’s first moment (taken by our fabulous anesthesiologist who happened to be a photographer at heart!)

My first Liam encounter (also taken by our anesthesiologist)

His ‘lil feet hooked up in NICU…

We had been prepping Jay for months on the arrival of Baby Liam. We would point out babies, talk about babies, anything to try and make some connection between mommy’s belly and what was really about to happen. Knowing that his life could be turned upside down with the arrival of this little guy. Jay has been amazing! He is so excited to have a baby brother and helps with all kinds of things. Here are some pictures of their first meeting. These were taken by my mom. Paul brought him in the room and immediately Jay announced by pointing “Baby Liam!!!” He kept telling us and pointing and celebrated by giving both Paul and I a kiss and kissing Liam. Instant brotherly love is beautiful…

Liam’s first night with us in the hospital (after being released from NICU)

Jay’s 2nd birthday was on April 30 and we got him a train table. We decided to hold off on giving it to him until the arrival of Liam so he had something special too. Needless to say he LOOOOOVES it!!

Liam’s first photo shoot…

Ok. Could this little dude be any cuter? And could you take photos that are cuter than those? I think not. LOVE the ones in the black chair. And Jay’s expression with his train table? Come on. Oh how I wish I could pop in and see you crazy kids. I hope you’re doing well friend. Think of you often.

Love,
G
