Introducing Arlo Lao Maynard

This is Arlo. He wasn’t due until the 10th, but he decided to join us early this morning. The midwives showed up at the house at 1:03 AM, and he was born at 1:12 AM. I’ll share more tomorrow, but I wanted you all to know that both mother and son are doing great.

[note: He wasn’t named for Arlo Guthery, or any other Arlo known to man. He is his own person.]

    I just looked at the times. Linette should win a prize for speed birthing. She delivered Clementine pretty quickly, but wow!

    congrats Mark!

    WOW what great news! I didn’t realize Linette was “on the nest,” to make a seasonal reference. Now there are two infant Arlos in Ypsilanti. The other lives at the split of N & S Congress. I think it’s just more evidence of how great Ypsi is. (We also have a JunA and a JunO in our neighborhood–always pronounced with second-syllable emphasis to distinguish them.)

    Congrat Mark & Linette et al!

    Glad to hear he’s not named after Guthry, who is a Republican, if you can believe it.

    Congrats! Now hurry up and go buy that boy some GI Joe dolls, cammo onesies, and some toy guns before they all sell out at Toys R Us.

    All joking aside, welcome to the world Arlo. 8 minutes? That’s not even enough time to boil water! Hope mommy is doing well. Clementine will hava a blast with a little bro.

    Arlo is a pretty good name, although I might have gone with an alternate spelling to make it a bit more evocative, personalized and refined: Arlowe, Arlough, Ahrloe, or, better yet, Arleau.

    (I have some suggestions for a re-conceptualization of “Maynard,” too, if you’re interested.)

    He looks great. Very glad he’s here, and you’re all healthy.

  37. Posted December 2, 2011 at 3:21 pm | Permalink

    When does Arlo’s Ypsilanti Entrance Interview get posted?

    And congratulations.
