welcome to baby benjamin!

Just a short note to let everyone know that Benjamin Charles was born in the wee hours of March 26 ... completely naturally (a successful VBAC) and completely perfect (in our humble opinions)! Vitals: 12:46 a.m., 7 pounds 5 ounces, 20 inches. It was a crazy night, and we barely made it to the hospital in time for me to push him out! I will have more details and photos later; we're settling in at home tonight. Peace ...
