Liam Charles Bush has finally arrived!!! He was born on July, 28 2014 at 7:56 a.m. weighing 8 lb 10 oz and 20.5 in long. I knew I would have a large baby, larger than Miss O, who weighed 6 lb. 5 oz at birth, but I wasn't expecting an eight pounder. All of the nurses throughout my stay at the hospital would say that I definitely ate my Wheaties this pregnancy, ha!
4 am on July 28th Charlie and I woke up semi bright eyed and bushy tailed to make a scheduled arrival for a 7 am c-section at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees, NJ. As most of you might know I had been going back and forth this pregnancy on whether to have a v-back or a c-section. The only reason I was contemplating a v-back was because he was head down the entire pregnancy, the 32 week ultrasound even confirmed this. However, when the doctor's first words were "Hi Butt" upon brining him out, I was like WHAT! He must have flipped the last few weeks of pregnancy, although I have no idea how he did since there was no room left in there. I felt so relieved that I made the right choice to have another c-section and then when they told me how much he weighed, I felt down right grateful. I am glad I listened to every ones advice.
Liam and I spent three nights and four days at Virtua Hospital. Charlie, Olivia, and my parents whom were visiting for over two weeks came to visit us every day. Liam and I spent a lot of quality time together when we didn't have visitors. Over that time we took many pictures to commiserate this special time of our first born son. There is so many pics that I love that I had a hard time deciding which ones to show, so bare with me with the following barrage of pics.
