Hello world, Jenn & Brendan would like to introduce their new son, William Allan Wimer

Hello everyone,

 

The moment you've all been waiting for is here. Please join Jennifer and Brendan Wimer in welcoming their son, William (Liam) Allan Wimer in to the world. Liam was born on Wednesday, February 25th, 2009 at 10:19 AM, at Butler Memorial Hospital. He weighed 9 lbs, 6 oz. and was 20 inches long. He has long dark brown hair, as you can see and is very mild-mannered.

After a long wait in the nursery inside an incubator, Liam was finally brought out to his tired yet eager mother and a rather calm and ready father. Although he was so tired that he could barely open his eyes, Liam still managed to drink some formla and attempted to nurse, but was simply too exhausted for the latter. Brendan got to do the first parental feeding with the forumla so Jenn could get some rest, only after she spent some well deserved time holding her precious new son closely.

 

Jenn is still recovering at the hospital and should be allowed to return home with Liam some time Saturday. Liam so far seems completely healthy and content. The only health note worth mentioning is that since he is a large baby, he had to eat immediately and often to make sure his blood sugar levels were high enough. It's also worth mentioning that he has some of the biggest feet one might see on a newborn. You can check them out in the pics….and it should be noted that grandpa Wimer has fairly large hands, for a measure of scale.

I've added some flickr photos to this post, but to see them in a larger size or in a set, you can go to: http://www.flickr.com/photos/polymerkid/sets/72157614440735458/

There aren't picks of Grandpa Johnson because he wasn't there for the time period that I was. Sorry, Thane!

Hopefully I will have some videos up soon for Jenn & Bren.

Willkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome! – February 20, 2009

At the suggestion of a friend, we have started a blog to keep everyone updated on the (soon to be) new addition to the Wimer family. I'm sure you already know that we are expecting a little boy to grace us with his presence very soon. We plan on naming him William (Liam) Allan, and the estimated due date is February 22nd. However, we do know that we might be waiting much longer than that. If he's anything like his father, he'll be hitting the snooze button as long as he possibly can!

Here's an ultrasound photo from back in December for you to enjoy.


Check back soon! Maybe the next post will be a birth announcement!
