Brand New Baby

We FINALLY had our baby!!
We Had a baby boy who was born May 14th (2 long days late) at 6:50 AM
Here are a few quick things about him and then I'll have to write the whole story (for myself to remember) later.
He was HUGE! 9lbs 15.5 oz-YES that is a half ounce SHY OF 10 LBS! I don't know why I should be, but I was blown away at this. He was 22 inches long. He looks exactly like our other 2 kids at birth. They all have looked the same pretty-much. The birth went well-better than I had imagined. I pushed for under 10 min. and was at the hospital in labor since 4:30 that morning. ( I had woken around 3:00 with some pains) So not long at all. I was very grateful for that. OH and we named Him LANDON DOUGLAS LINFORD.
My mom came down and luckily Landon was born in the short week that she was here. She left last night and we are missing her like crazy.

Oh yeah, I have been waiting to see pictures of Landon (love that name by the way)! He is a cutie and I can't wait to see him in person hopefully sometime soon. Hope everything is going well as a mother of three and that you are adjusting. Maggie is so cute, she reminds me of McKenzie a lot, I'm not sure if it is the hair or what but I think they tend to look alike. I think that it is funny that your family goes: boy, girl, boy just like ours. Man, it is still hard to live so far away from you guys and Isaac and Lindsey. I want to be there when everyone has babies and have the cousins grow up as best friends. We sure miss you guys and the kids. Love ya and congrats again!!

Congratulations on your BIG baby boy! Wow I thought mine was big at 8lbs. 3oz. but I think you won. I hope everyone is adjusting well and you will have to let me know what it's like with three.

So cute and congrats!!! So glad it went fast especially with a big baby. Owen was 9lbs and he came way faster than Alyssa who was 8lbs 12 oz. Anyway, glad you guys are doing well!!!

Congratulations! I was wondering if you had had the baby yet. So adorable, babies are just so special and bring the sweetest spirit with them. It looks like your terrifying dream almost came true at almost 10 lbs! You don't look like you could have a baby that big! Maggie looks so grown up in the pictures. Three was more difficult for me-I hope you guys are all adjusting well!

Lindsey and Isaac said...

Congratulations! I have been wanting to see pictures of Landon too. He DOES look similar to how I remember Kade and Maggie looking when they were born. He's so cute! Maggie looks so pretty in that picture of her holding him too. Glad things went well, and hope he stars sleeping a little more! :)
