new addition





Here are some photos of the new addition. We love him so much already, Sydnie and Wesley were smiling ear to ear. We did a middle name change right at the last minute so his new name is Landon Joseph Banks. We are home now and don't have the luxury of nurses waiting on Shannon hand and foot, I guess that's my job until the moms get here. Everyone is healthy and happy. Landon weighed 6 lbs. 8 oz. and was 18.5 inches long. Landon was 3.5 weeks early and technically considered a premie (by 4 days); Shannon has consistently had the kids early for one reason or another. I think her body gets to a point and says 'I can't take it anymore'.

Thanks everyone for your support. I know my meager explanation probably falling short of Shannon's version so she can correct me with anything else you may want to know. A few people have said they will be in Spokane, just let us know when.

Did you know that Joseph Banks is a world famous Botanist and Explorer? I always bug shannon J. that she should find out if the Banks line is connected to Joseph Banks.

My goodness I check your blog and didn't realize it was already baby time. I guess that's because you went so early! How exciting!!!! He is adorable. I'm very happy for you guys and hope you are feeling well and doing good.

Also Landon is my younger brothers name, I call him Lando all the time. Great, great name!!
