Our sweet boy’s name:

Liam Robert Cook

Liam was the only boy name that Andy and I ever agreed on.  We narrowed it down to a favorite four….and we both had different favorites within the four, except for Liam.  It topped out both name lists.  His name means “strong willed warrior” or “protector” depending on where you look.

Robert is obviously Andy’s grandpa.  One of the last things he said to Andy’s mom the day before he was admitted to the hospital was that he was glad there was going to be a little boy to carry on the Cook name.  It was something that stuck with Andy and I both, and we wanted to honor his grandpa and carry on his whole name.  So Liam’s middle name became an easy decision from there.

And there’s the story behind our boy’s name. 

(Also…..I think Oliver loves him already….he snatched an ultrasound picture off a table and ran around the house with it in his mouth and wouldn’t give it back….clearly, the rotten boy is already enamored with his baby brother.  Or he’s just rotten)
