William Campbell Shannon

Hello everyone!

Sorry it's been a while but we have been quite busy this week. On Sunday April 5th Danielle's water broke and we headed off to the hospital. Around 11pm that night we were admitted and Danielle started to go into labor. She was in labor all the day Monday and around 12:45am on Tuesday the doctors decided that this baby was not going to make it out naturally so they decided to go ahead with a C-Section.

So after 28 hours of labor at 1:32AM on Tuesday April 7th Danielle and I heard the first cries our our little boy William Campbell Shannon, we weighed in at 7 lbs 8 oz, he was 20 1/4 inches long. Now we are here in one of the rooms just waiting to get out of here. They make us stay for 3 days because of the C-Section but I can assure you that Danielle is ready to go home and so am I, as is little Liam. He is going to go by Liam because Danielle doesn't want two bills in the home, and I really like the name Liam. For those of you who don't know Liam is the 9th William Shannon although it won't be on his birth certificate. The tradition is that we take our Mother's maiden name as our middle name. The first William Shannon was born in Ireland in 1775.

We are looking forward to getting home tomorrow and posting more pictures of him in his room and us adjusting to the very new and excited time of our lives.
Until next time,
Mom and Dad!
