Beautiful Benjamin

At two weeks old today I finally got dressed AND put makeup on and did my hair today to run errands. Isn't Ben gorgeous?!

Ben is only awake about an hour and a half in a 24 hour period. He is very sleepy and always seems to look like this.

I really need Ben to take a bottle so we are starting early giving him just one a day. The kids love getting to feed it to him. He is taking it like a champ. Darren even fed him one in the car today. I love it.

Ben - 9 days old

Is this not the cutest pose?

Ben's first bath - in the kitchen sink.

Part of homebirth is a visit to the Pediatrician in the first 24-48 hours. This was his first car ride. Yes, those are flowers on his carseat. I recovered the carseat and just couldn't resist this adorable fabric-flowers and all.

Ben was a little jaundiced so he was getting some sun.

another beautiful baby - the only kind you two make! I love the pics and the birth story. I worry about you coming to St. Lou to soon after having him, however.
Congratulations. He is as beautiful has his mother.
