We delivered Benjamin in Dubai at Medcare Hospital via cesarean just as we have done with both Mila and Aaron. Benjamin has proven to be a really mellow tempered baby with siblings that are very much so intrigued by him. We feel very blessed to be a part of him and him a part of us.

We are now a family of 5. While I have only been home for 1 day I can say that the adjustment from 2 to 3 is not nearly as hard as it was from 1 to 2. Hopefully, all will continue to go smoothly.

Mila and Aaron have adjusted wonderfully to Benjamin. When Aaron saw Benjamin for the first time he just kept wanting to touch his face and hair. Mila immediately began to include Benjamin in our family’s plans and desires: “Mommy, daddy, Aaron, Benjamin, and Mila want to go home.” Β The evening that we left the hospital Mila assured that I and her father knew that she really liked Benjamin and was very attentive to him during our hour and a half stretch home.

Leaving the hospital.

Leaving the hospital.

We will definitely move someone to the third row, but it was interesting to see all 3 of them on 1 row.
