2: Expecting We were so excited to find out you were coming. The news came quickly, as did the news that you were a boy. You gave us a little scare around 13 weeks; during the ultrasound we learned everything was OK - and Mom saw that your images looked just like your brother's. Your name, however, did not come quickly. We didn't decide until the morning you were born. And Benjamin John is just perfect for you.
3: Delivery There's something about you boys. You gave us a scare during delivery, too. The nurses couldn't get the heart monitor attached well, and your heart rate kept going up and down - pretty low at one point. Grandma Marilyn was there to help explain what was going on, and Dad held my hand and kept me calm. It was a Saturday, and Dr. Pearse had left the hospital for a bit. He barely made it back in time! But all worked out well and you arrived safely and snugly.
