It'sa boy!

Baby Boy Benjamin!!!!!!

I know it's taken me a while, but our sweet baby boy is finally here! We are so excited. I have been so busy just watching him grow that I haven't bothered to post. He is almost 3 weeks old!!!!

Okay, stats are:

Born on Wednesday, April 16, 2008 (yes I know it is May already, SORRY Benjamin was more important than trying to figure out how to get back into my blog -- AND I didn't write down my password again, so I will have to figure out this mess AGAIN.)

Time: 11:18 a.m.

Weight: 9lb 4 oz

Length: 21 inches

Hair: RED (Mothers of Redheads Club, here I come)

Eyes: Blue, of course (but they seem to be starting to change)

When he was born, he was purple from coming out so quickly

My mother was terrified that his face was going to turn green because many other bruises do that before fading away. She MADE me ask the nurse before I left the hospital. He didn't turn green. The purple faded away completely in just a few days. I think he was nice and pink by Sunday

Congratulations! I can't wait to meet him. I wish I could have been there for you Laura. You have been there for me for my pregnancies and my time in the hospital, even sittting 3 or 4 hours in the waiting room when Spencer was born--you're a true friend Laura! I love you and all your children--I hope you know that!
