Humbled. This is what being a new parent has done to us. We adore our new boy beyond words. But there is no doubt that some things cannot be described in advance, that you can think you know, that you can assume you know how hard something will be...and truthfully you cannot until you are there.

It's a kind of difficult that is totally worth it, but wow! I will never be the same person again.

Beauty and meaning, defined below.
My son. Our son.
For a writer, I am shockingly empty of words. But not empty!
Let photos suffice.

Sorry to post without pics yet, but I just want to update those who have checked here for news.

Benjamin Cole Pedersen born June 8, 08. 11:21 a.m. to exhausted but joyous parents. 7.1 lbs. 18 inches long.

I am utterly in awe and challenged and will answer emails and phone calls as I can soon.

Thanks for all your thoughts.

Pictures will follow.
