Meet Baby Ben ~ Now 2 Weeks Old!

I finally got around to pulling the pictures off my camera.  Many of you have been so sweet to ask about my little guy and how I’m doing.  We’re doing great.  He’s adorable, I’m happy to not be pregnant anymore (see ya, heartburn!), and now we’re just trying to figure out a new rhythm.  ‘Baby Ben,’ as his brother likes to call him, was born February 17, my biggest baby at 8 pounds 4 oz.

My first thought after having him was, ‘Yay!‘…the second thought was, ‘What in the world???‘  Look at that little red-head!! 

Here he is, just one day old, meeting his siblings for the first time…

…and, he’s been the highlight of our days ever since.
This baby gets a lot of love!
Even Joey loves the little guy that bumped him from the ‘baby spot’.

…that is, until Mom is holding him.  Then Baby Ben isn’t so great anymore.  But, we’re working on it.

    yay! So so SO darling! Tell me it’s a bit easier the more you have because the older ones are older and more self sufficient and helpful! I’m trying to convince Duck for one more!
