It's A Boy!

Max Allan Anderson has finally arrived! He was born at home on Monday, March 8th at 5:20 AM. He weighed 10 lbs 9 oz and was 21 inches long! He is a big boy! It has taken us a little while to get used to the fact that we have a boy now. He has been called "she" many times! Brooke and Jaycee are absolutely in love with him. They both love to help take care of him. Brooke told us she can't wait until Max gets big so she can play with him. She already has plans for him to be the prince when they play dress-up! We are so happy that he is here. We are still adjusting to having a new baby. Thanks to lots of help with the girls and with dinners, from my mom and several people from our ward, I have been able to rest a lot and am feeling really good.

This is me about 2 1/2 weeks before Max was born.

  1. He is beautiful! We can't wait to meet him and get to know him. Give him big kisses from Great Aunt Mary and his Carter cousins!

  2. Wow!! You are amazing!!! Did you have your other two at home? I don't know if I could do that! Incredible! I'm so glad you got your boy!! What a big boy!!! So cute!! Know I know who to talk to when I get pregnant again!! So amazing!!


  4. Wow! That's great! I tried going natural with Wesson, but had an emergency c-section. I hope to try VBAC for the next baby. If my doctor's let me do VBAC, I will try natural again. If it works out, I'll have to pick your brain for helpful hints. Oh! And those pictures on facebook are so cute!!! I love them!!! He is such a cute boy!!!
