Ben Is Here!



Ben

On February 2nd, 2009 Amy gave birth to Benjamin, our new baby boy! He was 7lbs, 5.8oz and 20 inches long when he was born. Just an inch shorter, but a good 2lbs heavier than his dad when he was born 38 long years ago. 🙂 Ben was in a hurry to get here and didn’t give the doctor time to arrive, so the nurses delivered him. But, Ben didn’t seem to mind 🙂

Ben and Amy are in great health. Ben has already had his first pediatrician visit where he was pronounced extremely healthy (and always hungry 🙂 )

Amy did the birth completely naturally, with no epidural or pain medicine of any sort. She was amazingly strong and tough and rarely let out a peep (until the very end). Our delivery nurses were excellent and very supportive with Amy’s decision to go natural, which seems to be a rare occurence.

Our wonderful doula Jennifer was incredibly supportive, and together she and I helped support Amy while she labored. It was a team effort, but Amy did all the hard work and did it amazingly well.

So, now a few days off while we learn how to keep Ben fed and taken care of. It is amazing how much you find you love your new child the second they are here. It’s instantaneous and incredible.

But anyway, Ben is here and safe and healthy and happy! Thanks for all the well wishes and support! More later!
