Benson is a month old – ALREADY!

Month 1 – in the books.

(help meeeeeee!)

We can’t say that the first month having 2 kids has been easy – but we do know that it could be way worse. We’re all getting used to the new family dynamics (especially big brother), but overall everything is going well.  Benson is a fantastic little boy, and a great sleeper. I don’t even want to mention the obscene amount of sleep I have been getting – don’t want to make anyone jealous! He’s been giving us social smiles, and Liam gets so excited when he sees Ben smile.

Liam is a fantastic big brother, and he cannot wait until Benson can do more. Benson adores Liam and enjoys watching him play, color, build – anything!

Liam’s verbal skills are pretty amazing. When he tries, he can really string together a big sentence, and loves to tell us about EVERYTHING. He’s quite the chatterbox, and you never know what will come out of his mouth (like when Liam told our neighbor that he squished a dragon, or that his last name is Ashton Kutcher).

 

Hey! We had a baby!

We’re proud to introduce you to our newest addition:

Benson Maxwell Wimer was born via unplanned c-section on August 24, 2011 at 12:05PM – weighing 10lbs 10oz and measuring 21.5 inches!

We couldn’t be happier with our squishy little guy! Liam enjoyed seeing Ben in the hospital, and demanded that he get a stuffed animal for him as he did not have one yet. Benson also had a gift for Liam for being such a great big brother – a brand new camera! The camera proved to be a lifesaver – it kept Liam occupied for quite some time while he was visiting the hospital. We arrived home on August 27th, and the adjustment period is going as well as it can.
