Introducing Baby Benjamin!

Meet Benjamin, the newest addition to our family. He was born three months early on April 28 at only 1 pound 11 ounces (small for his gestational age) and 13 inches long.
This was the first picture ever taken of Benjamin after he was taken to the NICU and a lot of medical things done to him (including the cpap to help him breathe that is on his face).
This is him as of yesterday. He is just over 3 1/2 pounds and is 15.5 inches long.

He is doing quite well considering he was so early. We still have a ways to go but we're getting there! We were transferred prior to his birth to a larger hospital a couple hours away from home so it'll be some time before I post new projects or take the time to update my blog - hopefully you will all stick around! I've been taking tons of pictures so there will be a baby scrapbook on its way!

Congratulations on your little guy! Sending thoughts and prayers your way that he continues to do well and that you all get to go home really soon. He is adorable! :)

My twin nephews were also born three months early and were 2 pounds and 2 pounds, 2 ounces respectively. They are now healthy, happy 8 year olds who you would never guess were preemies. I'm praying your little man does just as well and is home with you and your hubby as soon as he possibly can be! Congratulations.
