I'm now a proud father!

I'm now a proud father!


Hey guys,

I've been meaning to make this blog post for a while now, but time has just flown by with all that has been happening.

Anyway, without further ado I'm very happy to announce that my wife Michelle and I are now parents to a beautiful baby boy called Benjamin Logan Ling.

He was born on April 22nd weighing 9.4 pounds.

He's our first child.

He has been keeping us up till all hours some nights, then others he has given us blissful sleep (between feeds anyway). All in all he is healthy and has made both of us very happy :)

He's also the first grandchild on both sides of our family so as you guys can imagine, he's going to be a bit spoilt!

Here are some pics of him for you to enjoy:

The above photo of Benjamin was taken only 15 minutes after he was born - very alert already!

Family photo taken at the hospital, Benjamin is just one day old.

Me looking very tired after just bringing Ben home from the hospital. Couldn't be a prouder dad though!

Lying on his playmat (2 weeks old)

Looking cute at 3 weeks old :)

Fast learner!


I hope you guys all enjoy the pics above of my son.

All the best to all of you and your families!

Mark Ling

Congratulations Mark. He's a beautiful boy. I came late to being a parent at 36, but I can honestly say that it is the most rewarding and valuable thing I have ever done. My first ebook was about babies, toddlers and sleep. Regards, Greg

Hey, how's that 2 month old doing now? Are you enjoying being a father?

I know many a times I held my little ones (back when they were that little) on my shoulder while they slept. And sometimes, just the slightest movements (to make myself more comfortable) would wake them up!

Don't worry, though. the up every 2 or 3 hours part is almost over if it isn't already... Pretty soon, it'll be every 4 or 5 hours. :D

An order came just before I was expecting it that's always a good thing. The deal was simply suitable as well as the method terrific. Needed some getting used to the brown leafy graphic but total I'm thrilled. Edan Aharony.

My kids are grown now... left the nest already to be successful in their lives. Now when I see your baby I remember those days when my kids were that age and feel nostalgic. Congratulations!
Enjoy him every minute of the day because they grow really fast. :)
