We are excited to be home from the hospital and back to almost normal... Our scheduled c-section was one thing clearly marked on the calendar. But this little love apparently did not get the memo and came early. Really early, both by date and time. When you get up at 1:00 am for a drink of water that's really all the excitement you want. Baby Bennett decided to add some more. Jeff had fallen asleep watching television, but you'd be amazed at the vertical jump I saw when I said my water had just broken. Impressive. And at 4:38 a.m. we were thrilled to hold this little blessing (which is what his name means).
Because he is early we have to take extra precautions and stay in for a while. Luckily we have lots of big brother's clothes, toys, and crib so we are set on some things even though he is here a lot earlier than we planned and prepared for! Thank goodness for Aunt Julie who met us at the hospital and took a sleepy little Aengy home with her.
The first little bundle came in the middle of the night, so I guess we should have expected that! We didn't know the sex of the baby, so we are excited to announce...
It's a boy! Jeff got to announce that as the baby arrived which was really wonderful.
