26 Completely Adorable Photos of Lauren Conrad's Son Liam
“I keep staring at him,” Lauren Conrad told PEOPLE of her son William "Liam" Tell, born on July 5, 2017 (dad is her husband, William Tell). “His little face is so cute. I keep telling him, ‘No one will ever love you like I do!’ ”
“He’s sort of a combo of both of us,” said Conrad of her son. “He definitely looks like William, but he’s still so tiny it’s hard to tell!”
Conrad hand-stitched the birth announcement that she posted on her Web site, laurenconrad.com.
"I just remember thinking he was so cute," Conrad said of meeting her son for the first time post-delivery. "And I was surprised by how tiny he was. I was convinced I was having a giant baby, to the point where I didn’t even buy newborn clothes. In my head he was 9 lbs., and I thought that’s why delivery hurt so much!"
"I had no baby experience. I had never held a newborn, and I just changed my first diaper the other day," she said of transitioning into motherhood. "But I figured it out quickly. The idea of it is so much scarier than the reality."
Conrad wove this personalized wall hanging on a loom for her son’s “neutral and calm” nursery. “We’ll pick a theme for the room once we know what he likes,” she said.
"I always hoped I would have a boy. I was a tomboy, and I always play best with boys. When we found out, I was so excited," Conrad shared of finding out the baby's sex before he was born.
“I got really into knitting while I was pregnant,” said Conrad.
“I grew up on the sand, so I’m excited to take him to the beach,” said Conrad. “I think William and I will each teach him different things. And we get to do all the fun kid things again! It’s so nice. There is so much to look forward to.”
Lauren had a little lamb! On Oct. 12, 2017, the former reality star took her 3-month-old on his first trip to the pumpkin patch.
Little Liam was front and center of family's adorable 2017 Christmas card.
Even though we couldn't see his face, Liam was pretty darn cute in his 6-month photo — which Mom stole with her cheeky Hills-related shirt.
Dad was a guitarist, maybe Liam will be, too? The 8-month-old showed off his musical inclination in another sentimental snap from Mom.
You talkin' to me? The 9-month-old was mom Lauren's inquisitive dinner date in April 2018.
Conrad's Father's Day tribute to her husband came with a bonus: a pic of Liam venturing into the water!
"Visiting Grandma's foster puppies" turned into pretty much the cutest picture ever in September 2018.
"This little pumpkin is growing up so fast!" Conrad wrote of the family's annual visit to the pumpkin patch.
All dressed up with somewhere to go! Conrad and her son donned Peter Pan and Captain Hook costumes for his first visit to Disneyland in October 2018.
Speaking of costumes ... Conrad debuted hers on Instagram a few days before Halloween 2018, dressing as Melanie Daniels from the Hitchcock classic The Birds and putting Liam in a bird ensemble of his own.
"Feeling pretty thankful for these two (and pie) today," Conrad wrote on Thanksgiving 2018. "Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!"
"He still hasn’t grasped the concept of an Easter egg hunt, but he did let me put a bow tie and bunny ears on him so we will call it a success," Conrad captioned Liam's Easter 2019 pic.
