I feel complete. I am finally at home with this little guy. It has been so wonderful having my entire family all together!!! The kids can't get enough of their little brother. He can't get enough of being held all the time. I can't get enough of holding and nursing him without a million cords in the way or worrying about pulling out the cords or making the sensors go off!!!

Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. It was a major help. I am looking forward to the chaos of 5 children (although I am very very grateful to my mother in law for helping me deal with that right now). Wish me luck in a couple of weeks when I am on my own!!! I welcome that over what we just went through!!!
Benjamin seems to be doing really well. I was very positive when he woke up every 2 hours and 45 minutes last night. That may seem strange, but I have to feed him every 3 hours anyway until he gets bigger. I had set Brad's phone alarm for every 3 hours and didn't have to use it once. The reason this is so good is that it means he was hungry on his own. A very good sign that he is thriving!!!! He onky started doing that the last 24 hours of the hospital stay!!!!
We suckered into buying some professional photographs at the hospital (new program they are doing). Here are a few of them. There are some that I could never duplicate if I tried (you just don't get a brand new born to smile!!!)
