Birth Story: Liam Alexander

Liam Alexander was born Tuesday, October 28 at 8:06 a.m., weighing 7 lbs 14 oz and measuring 19.5 inches long.

He was born via scheduled c-section due to being breech. It ended up being a very routine c-section, nothing interesting or bizarre. I am recovering very well, and Liam is awesome and perfect. We're getting the hang of BF, which has been our only challenge, but the only issue is getting a proper latch. My poor nips are bruised and to say they are sore is a serious understatement. So, everything is good, and we go home tomorrow.

I really just wanted to post the birth "story" so I can AW pictures of my little dude. He's awesome, and I am in love. I can't get over the "new baby" smell. His little sneezes and yawns melt my heart. Seriously, even his crying seems cute to me.
