Welcome Ben

Benjamin Daniel arrived Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 8:02 am. He weighed 5lbs 12ozs and was 18.5in long.

He looks exactly like his daddy. Handsome!

He spent just 4 hours in the NICU, but after doing so well was transitioned to the regular nursery. Being 5 weeks early I was terrified I would leave the hospital before he could, but he has always been a fighter and we all came home on Sunday.

Here are some things I have learned since becoming a mom.
  1. It is possible to shower in under 10 minutes. (Who knew??)
  2. It is possible to enjoy doing laundry. (His clothes are so cute!)
  3. I can survive major surgery. (I'm so glad it's over though!)
  4. I can't remember what it was like before February 23. (I'm so glad he is here!)
  5. I couldn't have picked a better man to be my Baby Daddy!! (He isn't just an amazing husband!)
  6. Contrary to popular advice I still get to eat with my husband, sleep for more than an hour at time, and I still get up every morning and put on make up and get dressed.
  7. Yes, we will still be going to Mexico in June. (I know myself better than those who said I would cancel the trip. Greg and I are blessed to have great family to take care of Ben.)
  8. There is someone else in the world now that can sleep through anything. (Thank God Ben is a heavy sleeper!)
  9. I still have OCD. (I just made a diaper and feeding chart to fill out and wait until you see my product of the week tomorrow.)

Now for some pictures.

He will eventually grow into his clothes.

Great Daddy!

He holds his paci when he sucks it. I love it!

Such a peaceful sleeper.

Look at those lips!

Coming home.

 This picture makes me tear up every time I look at!

Be Blessed!
