Our Story

Hi Folks! My name is Ben, AKA Big Daddy, and on Thursday August 5th, 2010 my wife gave birth to our beautiful daughter Elizabeth. This was a little bit of a surprise because Elizabeth was not due until September 27th.

Without going into too much detail, here is the story. About 5 weeks ago my wife was diagnosed with Preeclampsia and was put on bed rest. We went in for a check up sonogram on the 5th and the placenta had been compromised. We went to the hospital and Elizabeth was born via c-section that night.

My wife came home on August 8th and Elizabeth had to stay in the NICU. Obviously we visited her as much as possible. A few days later my wife was readmitted to the hospital with HELLP syndrome. She was there a few days longer and then once she was better came home.

Elizabeth was doing so well and making great progress that she was able to come home with us just 16 days after her birth on Saturday August 21st. Now everyone is home and doing well.

We are almost through our first week all at home together and things are going great. I look forward to sharing with everyone our progress and what I am learning and going through as the BIG DADDY of my little girl.
