Welcome to Parenthood: The Murdoch Kid

On Sunday, February 12, 2006 at 3:14PM our friends Rob and Beth Murdoch welcomed their son, Lance Robert Murdoch. Lance, being a bit of an overachiever, was born about five weeks early and will have to spend a little time in a special nursery before he goes home, but both he and his mother are doing quite well. At birth, Lance weighed 5 pounds 5 ounces and was 19 1/4 inches long.

Lance, for those who are wondering, is the kid Kyle is supposed to beat up all through childhood. Methinks, however, the tables have likely turned. I’ve seen firsthand how scrappy kids who are born a few weeks early can be, and Lance may have the upper hand. Steps must be taken.

So, congratulations to Rob and Beth. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to start Kyle on his endurance training.

    MFC will be pleased that mother and child are doing well. At 5 and 5, he’s got a good start.

    Tell me about it. Nobody in the family was fully prepared for The Littlest Broodling. He’s a loving little boy and a joy to behold, but he “don’t know much about the backdown.”

  2. Just doing a routine web search on my name and this came up. Not that it matters, but Lance was born February 12, 2006.

    1. @Beth — I do love finding typos three and a half years later! Believe it or not, I take the occasional trip down nostalgia lane and correct spelling, punctuation and even grammatical errors I made on entries that are older than certain short people in my house. Thanks for the heads up; the error has been corrected and your son is now an entire year younger (at least as far as this blog is concerned)!
