The beginning of Benjamin at home

All I can say is that I am SUPER thankful that Nick and my mom were around to help me transition to being a family of four. Here are a few pictures of our first week or so of being home...

Gabrielle's first try at feeding Benjamin a bottle...notice she's not even paying attention. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?!

One of the places that Benjamin likes to hang out...

Me talking to Benjamin while he was naked at his 1-week check up at our pediatrician's office.

Waaaaaaah! (He doesn't really cry that often, "perfect" little baby!) Notice he's wearing the shirt that Gabrielle painted for him at the sibling's class we attended.

His first sponge bath that we did at home.

Gabrielle playing the Alice in Wonderland game that Grandma Reinke printed off the internet and played while we were at the pediatrician's office with Benjamin.

Checking himself out in the mirror on his changing table.

Taking a nap in the bassinet that's currently in our bedroom. This is a very special piece of furniture because a family that I taught in Cheney handcrafted it for us before Gabrielle was born. Thanks again, Slusser Family!!!

Wide awake...look at his beautiful eyes!

What an adorable little sweetie! And Gabi looks like she is a GREAT big sister!
