Introducing our son: Liam Andrew

Lauren and I are super proud to introduce our son, Liam Andrew. Liam was born this day, the 29th of July, 2009 at 5:55PM in Bel Air, MD.






This little outdoorsman-to-be weighed 8 lbs, 8 oz, and is 20.5" tall.







He has his father's appetite and his mother's hair (so far).




Liam is pronounced "Lee-um" and is the irish short-form of William, and means "Strong-willed Warrior". When we first moved into our house, we painted the nursery (the smallest room) my favorite shade of blue (Lauren calls it french blue) and we dubbed it Williams room. It seems almost ironic that our boy was to eventually have that name of sorts!

Lauren and baby and are both doing great, and he picked up on nursing like he's been doing it his whole life.....wait...he has!

Lauren is ready to eat a cow. I'm going to go find one. Thanks for being with us today in techo-spirit!

-Kevin, Lauren & Liam (natterbug is at gramma/grampas)
