Announcing Baby Max

Here is Maxwell James "baby Max". He was born July 10th at 7:59 am a healthy 7lb 8oz baby boy, 20 1/2" long of baby goodness.

Here is Wendy happy to be done with the ordeal of birth, holding her youngest and oldest.


Daddy with his two youngest. Izzy eventually warmed up to Max, but it took a bit of time.


Quinner loves his "cute brudder". His kissing was not staged. He was happy to have his new room mate in his arms, although his attention span is quite short. Luckily Dad was there to catch the baby when he was finished with him.

Since Wendy is a bit subdued with the burden of birthing this little guy, the extremely proud and happy father is reporting the good news. Late last night around 10:30 Wendys water broke, which started a domino effect of actions that led to a beautiful baby boy. There were many firsts for us, first time Wendys water broke, first time for labor pains and first time that I had no idea how to ease Wendys pains. But, early in the morning, the good person came with the epidural and Wendys pains were subdued and the surgery progressed. All went to plan and now we have a perfectly healthy boy and a healthy recovering mother.

I will let Wendy tell the story as she saw it through her eyes, I just wanted to let everyone know the current status and exclaim my happiness and joy from today's activities.

P.S. I know that fathers always send out the least aesthetically appealing photo's of their wives, so I tried to do my best for Wendy, but no guarantees. Enjoy.

Congratulations! What a little cutie! And I think all big brothers tend to lavish affection one moment only to nearly drop the baby from inattention the next.
