Liams First Week at Home

We have a tradition in our family that when we have a new baby, the baby gives a gift to his big brothers (Eli gave Miles a wooden tool kit). We tell the boys that the baby is so excited to be in our family and to have such wonderful big brothers and he wanted to give you a gift. This is Miles showing us his gift from baby Liam. Eli got a Buzz Lightyear toy. Liam, 3 days old In his car seat for the first time, leaving the hospital

Welcome Liam John Watson

March 30, 2011 * 2:37 pm * 7 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 inches. Liam left the hospital weighing 7 lbs 8 oz and 5 days later at his 1 week appt he weighed 9 lbs 1 oz! His doctor is a little Haitian woman and she could not believe it. She said, "Wow baby, you drink like a cow" in her accent which sounds Jamaican. We both started laughing, I knew Liam liked to eat a lot, but I never thought he would gain that much weight so quickly!

This was by far my easiest and, do I dare say, most enjoyable labor and delivery. Everything was smooth and easy. Even the recovery has been pretty easy. By reading this you might think I'd be up for another one........ but I'm pretty sure 3 Watson boys are enough for our little family:)
