    Short: Liam Elijah DeLazzer born October 15th, 2010 at 8:06 am via C section
    9 Ilbs 12 ozs 20 inchs long

    Long: Even though I tried to go to labor sooner I made it to my scheduled C. Luckily I was the first one of the morning so we got to the hossy at 5:30 am and got prepped and had a spinal block and baby was out at 8:06am. It seemed like it took a lot to get him out but otherwise everything went beautifully and he was perfect! He came out screaming, he has a head full of black hair and perfect little round face. Mommy is healing slowly but surely and Liam lost too much weight before we left the hossy. He was down to 8 Ilbs 15 ozs and docs were concerned but I think it was because the day he was circumsized he barely ate at all. But he is a fantastic nurser he came out and ate a half hour later and he latched right on. Baby is gaining weight now though he is 9ilbs 2 ozs so docs are happy now and so is mommy. I like Liam a lot better now that he is out! LOL good luck mommys and hang in there!
