I promise to write out Ben’s birth story now that we’re home from the hospital and getting settled, but it might not happen for a couple more days so in the meantime, here’s the scoop!
Benjamin Diego was born at 9:29 AM on Thursday, October 3. Weighing 7 lbs 11 oz and measuring 20 inches “tall,” he is a spitting image of his daddy and looks just like Maya did at birth. SAME kid; it’s wild!!!
We are so in love with him. All the fears I had about not feeling connected to him in the womb … out the window. I didn’t know it was possible to love someone else as much as I love Maya … but my heart DOES have room for all my children, just like my mom said I would.
Welcome, Ben. You’ve made our little family complete!

Congratulations! Hi Ben! Welcome to the world!
Congratulations!! He is adorable. Enjoy every sweet moment with your precious new baby. Maya is going to seem even more grown up now that this baby is here.
Thanks so much! She seems like such a big girl compared to him, even though she’s small for her age!!
That little sleep smile … what a precious boy!
Thank you! 🙂 We’re smitten!
