Benjamin's Birthday

I’d love for you all to see Benjamin’s Birthday video, but I’m not gonna post it inline on the website. See I don’t want anything to distract you from it. Every single frame of this video is carefully thought-out, in an attempt to capture the moment. So many emotions hit you on a day like…

The Sneeze

The full video is coming some time later this week, but Nic’s dad caught this clip, and I thought we’d share it with you all — cause it’s so cute. Sorry about the low light in the room… http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-2823077347980246030&hl=en

What's a Wyndham?

From my dad: The name Wyndham is Anglo-Saxon, and derives from Benjamin’s great-great grandfather Wyndham Kent Wise, a businessman, contractor and world traveler born in the late nineteenth century. In the 1920s Wyndham was in Shanghai as a contractor, working on the building of the Bank of England, locally famous for its unique gold foil…

He Has a Name

Well it’s not Dylan, Buddy or Achmeed, but I think we’ve decided. Ladies and gentlmen of the Internets, I’m proud to announce the birth of a brand new U.S. Citizen: Benjamin Wyndham Wise. And the other great news? We’re going home today – provided all goes well with his last check-up. Please feel free to…

Introducing… "Male Baby Wise"

Likes: Naps, Boobs, and long walks on the beach. Dislikes: Gas, Circumcision. We’re still not sure about the name, but we’re debating between Benjamin and Joshua. Weigh in with your vote tonight!

The day after

I’m beginning to understand that sleep is a luxory. They moved us down the hall to the room we’ll be in for the next 2 days at about 2:30 am this morning, after Nic successfully fed the baby on their first try (yay!) but it didn’t quiet down after that. There’s a pull out chair…

Its a boy!

8 pounds, 6 ounces, 20 inches long. Mom is healthy and happy, baby looks good, but he’s still getting checked out. We’re all tired but very happy. Love you all, thank you for praying!

Half hour until go time

Trial pushing went well, but they decided to give her another half hour before they make a go of it. Oh and that’s 9am to 9pm. We intend to get some sleep tonite! Next post will be with baby news. See you all on the other side. Nic appreciates your prayers and happy thoughts!
