I had no idea how much a baby could steal your heart at first glance. But this little man had mine the minute I saw him at the hospital. This is really the first baby in my group of tight knit friends, the first baby of parents that I know well enough to just pop in unannounced (don't worry, even though we're that close I would never just show up on someone's door step). And I have to say it's incredible.
Ben's parents are two of the best people I know and I couldn't be more happy for them. Despite the sleepless nights in the future, and all the worrying parents have to do, they will conquer parenthood like champs.
Welcome to the world Baby Ben! I wish you all the joys of life and cannot wait to be a part of your life as the kooky honorary aunt.
