Adding to the Quaintness

Apparently our yellow house in Maine wasn't charming enough and Ickie wasn't busy enough staying up with an infant all night, so he bought and installed a front porch swing. It was useful today when Ben got a bit fussy.

Big Ben was born August 20th at 12:55 am. He was 9 pounds, 11 ounces and about 22 inches long. He was born via C section and we spent about a week in the hospital for my recovery. Ben is perfect: pink as a strawberry and a prodigy at breastfeeding.

Basketball Belly

Tomorrow The Kid will be two weeks past his due date, so if I don't go into labor this weekend, I'm scheduled for an induction on Monday. In the meantime, my tummy keeps getting bigger and rounder, so here's a look back at how I've grown along with my boy.
