March 22, 2010

I got to hold Benjamin for the first time tonight. It was a bit scary because he was connected to the vent and because of all the wires and lines attached to him; not to mention how tiny he is. We both needed it though. He was awake and happy and I was happy. The minute his nurses put him back in his isolette he fell asleep.

We also learned tonight that our little guy has a nickname. One of his nurses, Mike, said he was kicking his legs so much at one point that he started calling him “Chief Running Ben”, “the Chief” for short. We have a feeling that’s going to stick with him.
