He may have slipped a few smiles by in the last week, but today he gave some great smiles to the camera! Every time the hooks of his little mouth curl up, I melt inside. So sweet!

Benjamin has been plumping up a lot these past few weeks, which probably has something to do with the nearly nonstop nursing he does... He now officially fits into his one-size sunbaby diapers. These are the ones that will should fit for another two years, so it is very exciting!

Felix is so sweet with his little brother. He is actually even a little bit more gentle than Evie is with Benjamin. When he comes in from outside, the first thing he asks is to hold the baby.

Benjamin seems to be getting bigger and cuter every day. He now has a really good awake/sleep routine. When he is awake, he is looking all over the place trying to make contact. As you can see in one of the pictures, he's already pretty strong on his tummy, too. He's also starting to notice the toys on his bouncy chair, even if he can't really do anything with them yet.
Today we received eight more alva newborn diapers. They are so incredibly cute! They should also fit for another two months or so because they have three sizes and he's only on the smallest one still.

We have the most perfect piece of baby equipment for Benjaamin... a cosleeper! It is basically just a bassinet with only three sides. The open side attaches to the side of the parental bed. It is perfect for midnight feedings and also so lovely to sleep in such close proximity. With our tiny bedroom, it was also must.

No more disposables! We had planned on using up the package of newborn diaper we have this week while Liz is still recovering from her c-section, but last night Tom said Benjamin could start wearing real diapers as long as Liz agrees to leae the laundry to hi. Okay!! He looks so cute in his fluffy butt!

This afternoon the kids came by to meet their new baby brother. They were so sweet with him and very gentle. Opa Bas and Oma Wilma also came to meet their newest grandchild. The kids will be staying with them this weekend so Tom and be at the hospital as much as possible.
This morning at 9:01 we welcomed Benjamin Matthijs into the world by scheduled cesarean. Benjamin weighs 3435 grams and is 52 cm long! The delivery went smoothly and mother and baby are doing well.
