Announcing the arrival

Ashley was supposed to wait until Thursday for her scheduled C-section, but Liam did not cooperate. She went into labor at 3:30 a.m. She thought it was false labor, same as last week, but by 7:30 a.m. she called her husband and told him to come back home; it was the real deal.
 
Justin is the proudest daddy I have ever seen. When the baby cries, he rubs his little head and coos, "Daddy's here. It's okay." Oh to be 25 and doing it all over again.
 
Liam is a buster. He weighed in at 9 lbs. 4 oz. and was 20 3/4 inches long.
He is nursing well and even when he got his shot, he only cried for a moment.
 
I am thrilled beyond words! I am deeply in love.
 
 
 
Four generations: granddaughter, great grandson, me and my daughter.

Congratulations, Linda!
Your boy is precious. I look forward to watching him grow up on Blogland! :)

Great photos--all of them. He is a doll (not a tiny, fragile doll, either ;) and Ashley and Justin look like the love affair--with their boy--has already started.

Congratulations, Linda. You're now a great-grandma.

Big boy! My last child was over 9 lbs, too. I kept telling everyone that she was 3 weeks old when she was born! You are so lucky to be so close and able to see him. You certainly look smitten with this young man!!
