As a 6th child of 6 children myself, I would just like to let Laura and Peter know that the 6th child is the brightest, cutest, smartest, and most entertaining of all children.

>>What was that, an 11 month pregnancy??? :)<<

The baby was due Nov 15. It just seems like 11 months because we had to suffer through it too! Born on my sister's birthday.

that other redhead said...

And for Laura, some are shocked at 6 but I think you are a heroine. I can't think of a better person/mother and father to bless with such a bounty. God love you all.

I love the name Finn and want to hear the story behind the name. I want pictures too! I want I want. Take care of the child born with his own fan club.

Congratulations, Laura and Peter!!!
But now, to share a little tidbit off the People story that you guys liked too.

"In other Project Runway baby news, Heidi Klum also recently welcomed a son. And judge Nina Garcia is expecting her first child in March."

So Congratulations are in order for Miss Heidi Klum and Seal. And OMFG MissNinaGarciaFashionistaBitchOnWheels

Dear Laura (I know you read the prg boys),

Congratulations on the birth of your son, what a wonderful name you guys have chosen. Finn is just perfect. Enjoy every single moment because kids do grow fast. All the best to you and hope you're gonna share some pictures with your devoted fans. Big hug and kiss to the little one and God Bless.

thyrza said...

Hooray! Fabulous baby arrives (fashionably late, of course!) What a great name! Congrats to the whole family.

Those of you asking about the name...my guess (based also upon some of the other boys' names) is that some members of the Bennett/Shelton clan are Scandinavian. Just a shot in the dark, there... :)

I think it's an Irish name, isn't it?

Janet said...

I found this:

"Fionn, Finn

Means "fair-headed." Fionn Mac Cool (read the legend), a central character in Irish folklore and mythology lead the warrior band, the Fianna (read the legend). Fionn was not only incredibly strong but he was also extremely brave, handsome, generous and wise, a wisdom he aquired by touching the "Salmon of Knowledge" (read the legend) and then sucking his thumb.
The name is popular in Ireland with both spellings Fionn and Finn."

Let me add my congrats, Laura, Peter & boys! Little Finn will have so much love, being our little pr baby. I shall have to knit him a hat!

Finn is a cool name, I was rooting for Gunnar, tho.;-)

Welcome to the world, young Finn. My mind has been mightily distracted waiting for this baby. My FIRST was nearly 4 weeks late so I think I know how she must have felt just waiting and waiting. I hope all is well and that even more joy comes to this fabulous family.

Janet: Well, I'm almost certain that Piek is a Dutch name...wait...is the Netherlands considered part of the Scandinavian region? Oh, well, it's up there in Northern Europe somewhere...shoot. I'm both geographically and anthroponomastically challenged. Just ignore me…

Anonymous said...

I can't believe only one other person in this group of 100+ posters picked up on the pun in the name, Finn being fin, or the end. Haven;t you noticed Laura and Peter are clever with names: Pierson = Peter's son and Larson = Laura's son.

YAY! Peace and blessings to Laura, Finn, and the rest of the family!

Why didn't you guys ever sponsor a "Name Laura's baby" contest? I think we'd have had fun with that. Of course, we'd have to watch out for Jeffrey anonymously contributing names like 'Sigmund' or 'Tremayne' or (gulp) 'Jeffrey'

FrancesSpencer said...

Thank you boys for letting us know! For a while, I thought the baby was going to stay inside the womb until there was peace in the Middle East. I'm so happy for you, Laura. Treasure this Finn or Final one. It is the last time you will be able to hold your child for as long as you want and not have him complain. You can't spoil a newborn. Last month I returned my rented breastpump and all of a sudden I started crying! Knowing I most likely won't have another baby was a harsh realization for me. I wish we could get a pool of money together and send flowers! Congratulations to Laura and her entire family. Good luck!

"and weighed in at 8 lbs."

Is that a big baby? I have no idea. Just curious!

Is that a big baby? I have no idea. Just curious!

For a smaller person like Laura, somewhat big. But babies can gain up to a pound a week at the very end, so if this baby wasn't overdue, he probably would have been around 6 lbs. Boy babies tend to weigh more also.

Anonymous said...

I give Laura two weeks, max, to lose all the baby weight. She certainly has the self-control, and she's also pretty much Wonderwoman -- if anyone can do it, Laura can.
