Congratulations!
Did he come out with parted hair? That's pretty nerdy awesome. But with a name like "Max King," you've set him up for a life of superlative achievement. You all look great.

Ali Snow said...

So you decided on Robert! How sweet. His cheeks are HUGE and so much hair. I can't wait for more pictures. He looks so good though. Congrats and I'll talk to you soon.

Amanda said...

Congratulations! Max is DARLING! I love his hair. What a happy family of 4!

p.s. Hooray for epidurals!! Especially for 9 lb babies!!!

Julie Broadbent said...

Suzette Selden said...

Joo Lin said...

Yay for healthy babies and mamas! I'm so glad he's here and you weren't induced (I am not a fan of induction).

You both look great!

Crystal said...

Kara said...

Augh! He came early! Darling. So darling. That hair ROCKS- love it! PLEASE call me about this weekend if you need me. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

Andrew said...

CONGRATS! Sorry we're not closer to help out! But, hopefully you'll have a quick recovery to help US in mid Sept!! I know Robyn is VERY jealous - she's counting down the hours.

And...as most everyone else has already said...that hair is CLASSIC! I'm guessing Harley did the stylin'?! Very nice!

lys said...

Congrats! I can't believe all the hair. Looks like he takes after his little Snow cousin.

I can't wait to hear the whole story because there's got to be a story behind this! Congrats!

Sarah S said...

Claudia said...

Congratulations! A beautiful boy to join a beautiful family!

Robyn said...

Oh he is adorable!!! Congratulations! You look great Wendy! Can't wait to see him and help you out!

Ming said...

Yea pictures! I can't believe all the dark hair. He looks so different from Anderson. SO cute! SO big! I'm just so happy for you guys. Dying to hear all the details. Remember how I was on the phone with Harley literally 5 minutes before he was born?! Ahh, you must've pushed what? Once! Maybe twice? Again, can't wait for more deets. Love you all! So glad the epidural worked. Love love love.

Ming said...

PS LOVE the name! As you know I've been a HUGE Max fan from day one. Love that you used your grandpa's name for the middle name. So appropriate. Maxwell Robert King is such a full and handsome name. Oh baby Max how I already love you and can't wait to meet you in person.

janaemadsen said...

congratulations wendy!

Codi said...

Congrats! So happy that he is here! Anderson and Max looks as different as Iris and Willa did as babies. Of course now everyone asks me if they are twins, so you never know!

He is a doll! I am so happy for you guys and I am excited that we will live close enough to meet this little guy before too long!

Ben said...

Bang Bang Maxwell! Buy him silver spoons instead of hammers.

Mike said...

Thanks for the pix. He is very cute. But the hair in the first picture. I just don't know. Is it real? Or a toupee?

Love

Dad

Emily said...

YAHOO!!!!!

Maxwell and Maximus are destined to be college roommates.

We are SO HAPPY for you.

xoxox
lots of loves, and baby drunken stary eyes,
Emily

MaryAnn said...

OHHHH so cute!!! What a darling little chuncker! I can't wait to hear all about how things went. Congratulations to you guys!

Kaija said...

welcome max!!! i love his name! (it happens to be my dads...) i love the parted hair, too. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Kelley said...

Pretty baby, pretty mama, beautiful family! Congratulations on becoming a family of four! Hope your birth experience was a good one. We need to get back out there to visit so we can meet your little Max. Love to you all from us!

The Platt's said...

Congrats! He's perfect!! I can't wait to meet him! Hope you are feeling great (as great as you can feel immediately after having a new baby).

Alex and Katie said...

I love him! So happy for everybody. He's so cute. You're so cute. Anders is so cute.

P.S. Alex thinks he looks like a mini Ed King.

Logical Libby said...

Very cute! Where did you get the toupee>

J. Ed King said...

After my brilliant son-in-law referenced Max as looking like “a Mini Ed King” I cannot let such a charming thought go by without just a moment to opine. Oh if it were only true, but upon further consideration these facts do exist and they are irrefutable:
1. I am dark haired and hazel eyed - my most excellent wife is blonde haired and blue eyed. Together we created 4 blonde haired blue eyed kiddos. To think that my genes could dominant, twice removed, in such a precious little boy doesn’t make good odds for betting.
2. Lest we forget the Wilers have 2 stunners with dark hair – Ali and Tom – Max could be a mini them…they…? Anyway
3. When Anderson was born, and until recently, there was no argument on this side of the gene pool that he looked just like his DaDa at that age, however after many Sundays of video chat I’m leaning that Anderson is looking more and more like his beautiful mother – which proves one of two things. Wendy’s genes were there all along and are pronouncing a stronger, more recognizable, presence as Anderson grows older or the old adage “if you feed anything long enough it begins to look like you” is true.
4. Whoever he look likes, favors or appears similar to – he is the product of two families becoming one and he is stunningly beautiful.

One last pontification before I end – more like a request really – can I come to Maryland and feed him for a couple of months

Ed to some Dad to others but Jeddie to Max

Rebecca Burningham said...

What the heck!

Did not even know this was happening... Was it really nine months?

Yay!

Ligia said...

Ooh, I can't wait to pinch those lovable, full cheeks!!! SO glad it all went so well! And so glad Max decided to come to this world all on his own. A smart boy already, just like his big brother. I showed Anderson these pics of him and again he kept saying over and over "I a big brother!" Already so proud!!!
p.s. can we keep him?

Mom said...

I'm with Alex, I think he takes after Ed. I can't believe the dark hair and the chubbers he is already. I'm so glad I get to hold in a few days, I'm already in love with him. I love the name, such a sweet tribute to my Dad.

Jen said...

Congratulations! He's such a handsome little guy! I love that dark hair!

Brittany said...

Oh my goodness! I love his name and his hair! What an adorable family you have! Congrats Kings! :)

Kate said...

Well he's a cutie!!! That hair is amazing! Hope all is well with you and Max! What a cute name! Can't wait to see more of him!

Mike said...

I figured it out. It's a COMBOVER. Does Max go to the same barber as Donald Trump?

Love

Dad

Jess said...

Look at that hair! He's adorable. Hope everyone is getting some sleep.

emandteem said...

Yay for epidurals! I really like the name, not to mention the hair. Congrats to you and your fam.

Lisa said...

So adorable! Love the chubbs! Congrats!

Joe said...

A new King is a cause for celebration. A very long, sleepless celebration. Party on! He's beautiful and so are you and H and A.

marti said...

Congrats! Look at that hair! And those chubs! And he didn't weigh 10lbs! - Hooray! Sending you love & well wishes!

Rebecca Burningham said...

I'd like to clarify my comment.

I DID know that you were pregnant. I DID know it was getting close. I just didn't realize it was THIS close.

There.

I feel better.

anna banana said...

He looks perfect! Congratulations! Love to you guys!

Ryan and Cheryl Harris said...

So happy and exciting.! Wish i was there and can't wait to meet him. Great job wendy. What a precious little blessing entering into your lives.

Szobonya Bercel said...

Oh, congrats, he's just soooooooo beautiful!
Kivancsi vagyok, hogy ilyen sotet marad-e majd a haja. Amikor Aron megszuletett, neki is sotet haja volt, de lassan kivilagosodott, es most mar pont olyan mint Bercele :)
