Welcome Little Liam!!!

Liam David Lista. Born via scheduled c-section on Monday February 6, 2012 at 7:41am. He weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces and was 20 inches long. Welcome to the world and welcome to our family. We waited a long time for you to come!

Diego couldn't "officially" cut the umbilical cord because of the sterile field but they left a length of it so he could cut that.  He says it was like cutting though a hose.
Our first family photo - in the operating room.
Our second - in recovery.
Con su abuela de Argentina.
Proud Papi.
Like Father, Like Son - our little rock n roll baby!
Ready to go home in his little AC/DC onesie.
He looks so small!!!He looks like a dwarf in that carseat.  If fact they kept us an extra day in the hospital cause he kept loosing weight.  I know they are supposed to loose weight but he hit the 10% mark and that set of the proverbial flashing red light.
1 week old.  There are alot more of these cute yawning and stretching shots on my Facebook page.

To be  honest, I had no idea just how much attachment was involved.  I mean, I love this little man to death so emotionally I am that attached.  Physically it seems that he could spend days just nursing and then sleeping by my side.  It wouldn't be so much of a problem except that I am, in fact, not making enough milk to nourish my little guy so he is never satisfied.  I feel like a failure.  My one responsibility at the moment and I cannot fulfill it. It's taking quite the emotional toll on me...  So, we are now parents who were set on solely breastfeeding that are now breastfeeding, pumping and supplementing with formula.  And still trying to figure out the balance at that.
