54 Hours of Bliss



Ben is now 4.5 days old. So far we've enjoyed every moment of parenthood - though it has been a little exhausting. Marta is home now and trying to get some much needed rest - I'm sure she'll be back to regular blogging very soon. Ben is still at the hospital getting some extra TLC in the NICU. We can't wait to have him home with us.

This picture was taken on Tuesday when he was one day old. He's become a completely integral part of our family. We've really grown to love him. And, as you can see, he appears to be comfortable with us.

Thanks again for all of the kind comments.

Good to hear that everyone is well! Can't wait to have Mart back to blogging, however it is vitally important for her to get her rest. I can't wait to see the growing of little Ben. :)

Blessings.

Hope all is well in the NICU. I know that can be very stressful. (It looks like it might be for dad) Hope you are ALL well soon.

Hope everyone is doing well and getting lots of rest. Our last baby was hospitalized for a week when he was about three weeks old. It's never easy being separated from those little ones, even when they are so new to you.

What a BEAUTIFUL baby! He looks so sweet, too! My c-sec birth photo had a strong similarity to your first family portrait... take it easy, new Mama. I want to hold him and smell him. AHhhhhhh!
Blessings, Erin

Sending my love and prayers for Benji to come home soon! Rest sweet Marta, rest.

michelle said...

I hope he is able to join you at home soon. Having a little one in the NICU always wreaks havoc on a new mother's already crazy hormonal emotions. Get rest while you can!

Polly said...
