...Benjamin is letting us see what his eyes look like.

At 11 days old he is starting to keep them open for longer than a few minutes.

He loves his evening bath, usually given to him by Daddy and Big Sister.

ooh pretty...

My babyhawk arrived yesterday. Isn't it pretty. I love the colour and the fabric.

Benjamin was quite content in it this afternoon, helping his Dad to pick some veggies for dinner.

At 6 ft 6, 'Babybjorns' and other similar carriers are just too small for Dave, but the Babyhawk is adjustable to fit both Dave and I perfectly, and it is a whole lot funkier!!!.

Settling in...

Benjamin is now 9 days old. He is such a darling and we all adore him.

He sleeps through the noise and chaos like only a 4th child can, and is never without a sibling who wants to hold him.

He squeaks more than he cries, and is feeding like a pro.

If he keeps this up, we may start wanting #5.

He has arrived!!!

Benjamin Robert arrived on Sunday night at 7.30pm.

He weighed in at 9 pound 9!!, which was a surprise to everyone because I looked small compared with previous pregnancies. He was 54 cm lomg, so tall like his Daddy.

We came home yesterday and have settled in well. The kids adore him and he is getting lots of cuddles.
Mum is already deciding on fabrics for a quilt.....
