Ben is here!

by Ellen in

I don't have a lot of time, because there are a lot of people around, but here are a few pictures of Ben!

Everyone is doing well, and we are so lucky that Ben is so perfect and healthy. He's cried, pooped, and eaten, so he's doing all the right things so far. Way to go, buddy!

He is perfect, warm, soft, and smells like heaven. He is so loved, and I know that he loves us, too. He told me. Because boys tell their favorite aunts everything, duh.

It was a nice surprise for him to come out with a head full of dark hair! A good trait of my sister's that he inherited, thank goodness. He has more hair than his dad, which is hilarious, and Craig will never hear the end of it.

Anyway, I didn't know I could love anything as much as I love this person. It's like nothing else matters, and if being an aunt is this great, I can't imagine what Claire and Craig must be feeling. They are already such natural parents. I'm overwhelmed with all the love, and I never want to leave him EVER. It feels like anything else I take pictures of is not going to matter in comparison to this guy. I guess I'll have to find a way to get on over that.

And just because:
Zoe's a little stressed. She has no idea how her life is going to change.
