Mom, in labor, was craving Dutch Bros. coffee, "like none other", so daddy was amazing enough to stop, and even get her much-adored Owl mug (Breast Cancer Awareness mug). By the time she got to the hospital and got her epidural, she was starving, and had to munch on something (behind the nurse's back, naturally...), so, Baked Cheetos it was.
Mom was soon all thumbs-up, ready to finally meet her baby boy! At 2:49pm, we got to meet beautiful Liam, at perfect 6 pounds 15 ounces, eyes wide open and aware. After 9 long months, both mom & dad were so elated to finally get to meet him...they wept together in joy.
