Benjamin Wallace.

He's here, my friends!
(If you don't follow me on Instagram, surprise!)

Meet little Benjamin Wallace Kauffman. The newest stealer of my heart.
Fresh baby!
Bathed and looking good.
Peaceful Ben.
He arrived prompt as can be on his due date, July 12th, via cesarian and he sure did make me work for it. He's worth it!
Ben is a look-alike of his older brother, with darker hair and lighter eyes, but to me looks more like his daddy. Is that even possible? He's a great eater, a great sleeper (so far) and so very kissable.
We are through the "dark" days now, you remember the dark days, ladies? Those first few days when you're body goes outta-whack and hormones through the roof. Now we have settled into a nice routine as we all get to know each other.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude towards those around me...
For a healthy baby boy.
For a first-born who constantly makes me proud with his kindness, sweet nature and ability to adapt.
For a supportive family. Seriously, I could NOT have made it through the first two weeks without my mom and mother-in-law.
My parents: Nanna and Papa Pat.
My inlaws: Papa, Mimi and Great Grandma Genny.
And most of all for my husband; who through this second-baby process has been my rock and my best friend. There's no one I want by my side more than him. Thank you, Lord, for this man.
You learn a lot about love during these times, and I've been overwhelmed by all the love in our lives.

Get ready for picture overload around here! 
Thanks for all the well-wishes.
