Good news!

So, a week ago, this happened:

Born after an induction and just 2.5 hours of labor, Benjamin has stolen our hearts.  It really is amazing to me that I can fall in love with another baby just the way I did with my first.  Love is always multiplied, never divided.

Little Benji is super loved.  I worry a bit that he might grow up thinking the world revolves around him, because there are so many siblings ready and eager to cater to his every whim.

He's perfect -- 7 lbs 12 ounces at birth, took to nursing like a champ, and is up every two or three hours at night just like every other Bartholomew baby.  But he also came with the sweetest, calmest personality.  Ten babies and not a fussy one among them.  I think I'm super blessed.

We're calling him our little "Squish," even though my husband objects to the name.  I figure he's only going to be this little and squishy for a month, so the nickname won't stick anyway.

Cami keeps saying, "Oh, he's so cute!  Can I pet him?"  Then she strokes his hair.
