Austin Taylor November 22nd, 2008
Lydia gave us a very special surprise Wednesday by giving birth to our first child. Our baby Max Robert Taylor was delivered at 10.58 pm on Wednesday November 19th. He weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces and was 21 inches long.
I didn’t know the gender until the doctor held him up. Lydia, I don’t know how you kept the answer to the boy-girl question secret so long, but you did it!
Lydia is home now and recovering well. I was in the delivery room the whole time and I’ve never been prouder of my wife than that day.
Thank you Lydia!! I love you so much and can’t possibly tell you how much joy you’ve brought into my life!
We would like to say a special thanks to Delivery Nurses Jane & Michelle at University Hospital who did a fantastic job keeping us calm, giving Lydia excellent care, and answering all our first-parent questions!
I’d also like to say, “Thank you” to our family, friends, and workplaces for the beautiful gifts, flowers, cards, and phone calls. Max is such a joy to share with all of you!
