He’s Here! Welcome, Liam Richard

Not that I have time to blog, but just wanted to let you know that Liam arrived on Thursday, June 30 at 9:18pm. He weighed 8lbs 3oz and was 22 inches long and resulted from a relatively easy labor and delivery. Everyone is doing well, and Liam is of course absolutely perfect and we are head over heels in love.

We got home from the hospital last night, and as you can imagine, we’re exhausted and trying to get settled in. Thank you for all of the emails, well wishes, calls, texts, tweets, Facebook messages, and voicemails! Though we have not had time to reply to everyone individually, (we were overwhelmed with your love and support!) do know that we have seen and read every single sentiment and appreciate all of them dearly. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. I know you’ll understand if it takes awhile for us to get back to you, get organized, and get photos and proper blog posts up. I plan to do a new blog category here on our family site called “Dear Liam” where I write letters to our son as we go through this experience; I have a post for the first 24 hours all planned in my head but no time or energy to get to it. Eventually! Just know all of your support has meant a lot to us.

We began a quick “Arrival!” Flickr gallery and hope to add more photos soon.

Thanks again! Welcome, Liam!
