Welcome Little Liam Marius Canney
Originally I intended this post to be "wordless," Just pictures and nothing else, but I realized I don't do "wordless" very well. And I don't really want to recap the birth story in such detail as to alienate anyone who's experience is different: hospital birth, home birth, C-section, epidural, all-natural...doesn't really matter; the entrance of new life into the world is always a miracle, regardless of how it happens. Liam has a birth story, and it's a special one because it's his.
On Friday morning I went for a short walk and wondered if today would be the day that I met the little life inside me.
Turns out it was.
Just a few hours later at 1:30pm, after a very short and intense labor, Liam Marius Canney (all 7lbs 2oz and 22 inches of him) made a hurried entrance into the world.
He has since, stolen our hearts.
Liam: Strong-willed warrior and protector.
Marius: after my Grandfather, Liam's great-grandpa, who passed away in August last year.
So please enjoy the next few weeks of guest posts while we drink up these newborn moments and start our journey as a family of five.
Thank you for all your well wishes and kind words on Instagram and Facebook.
