Oh by the way, Katie had a baby!!

So I never officially announced on here that Katie was preggo!!! I've known since the day she found out and had planned to do a big ol post about it but she was never in the mood for pictures and we all know you don't mess with a pregnant woman!! We have been on RED ALERT waiting for her to have Ben and she finally did at 1:00 am Friday morning!! She barely made it to the hospital on time, which we were expecting since her labors move super fast. From her first contraction to birth it was a short 3 1/2 hours!
She has sad cell service in the hospital and my number is long distance so she couldn't call me from the hospital phone so I didn't find out untill 8 pm Friday night when her text finally went through! I hustled over to meet little Benjamin Riley Saturday and spent some time with Katie. Her hubby Roberto had to take their oldest Joey to something and was going to be gone all day so I stayed with her for several hours so she wouldn't be alone. As luck would have it about an hour or so after i left she got discharged early!!
So this is Benjamin Riley who will go by Ben, weighed in at 9 pounds 2 oz, and was 21 inches long! He is a chunk!! I held him for over an hour and when I left my inner elbow was sore! He is a handful! But sooo sweet. I don't know what it is about me and kids, they snooze easily in my arms. They also poop. I'm not sure what that says about me.. I put children to sleep and they feel comfortable pooping when I hold them. Fabulous!

Welcome to the world Ben!!
