Benjamin's first visit to Rotary

Well, he wasn't there in person, but he was in spirit (and on the big screen too). This is from the Portland downtown Rotary club's Tuesday lunch at the Governor Hotel.

Ta da! I'm here!

At about 6:41PM Wednesday, October 18th, I decided to make my appearance. Apparently I yelled a lot, so perhaps I wasn't so happy about it at the time, but I'm happy now! I weigh 8lbs 11 ounces, I'm 20 3/4 inches long, and I've got Grandpa Proost's red hair.

Yep, that's a contraction all right!

It's 2:30PM and Mel's on an epidural and inducement medicine. Lots of contractions, as you can see from the chart on the monitor. Dilated now to 4cm...

My first car!!!

The weekend before I was born, Mommy and Daddy bought me a new baby boy blue car! They call it the Blueberry....

My first cruise

Mommy & Daddy took me on a cruise. Mommy got grumpy cause she couldn't have wine and champagne...somehow that's supposed to be MY fault!

Here, kitty kitty...

Just you wait until I get out, and get coordinated enough to grab your tail! We're going to have SO MUCH FUN!!!! :-)

Benjamin on the radar

This is me, swimming in the sea of Mommy...on submarine radar!
