3 weeks.

My little Bennster is 3 weeks today - 3 weeks!!! I can't even believe it. It has been such an amazing experience.
Today, Bennett gave his mommy a huge open mouth smile --- I laughed with joy for about 30 seconds and then the tears came a'roll'n. While we sat and stared at each other through my teary eyes my heart ached with gratitude. I am so grateful for the spirit he brings into our home, for the love he shares with Brandon and I, for the way he trusts me, for the way he makes our marriage stronger and for the way he simply makes us a family. I love every moment. Part of me wishes he would stay small and cuddled in my arms forever and the other part can't wait for the rest of the journey.
I love you little man.

Oh ashley! Those moments are the BEST!! I remember about a week after Bailey was born I was driving down the road, and Celine Dion's Miracle song came on and I had to pull over because I was a mess!! They are amazing spirits truly! Thanks for sharing the special moment!! I can't wait to meet little Bennetster!! Call me!! Or maybe I will call you when I am in the hospital tomorrow! Love you girly!

Amen to wanting them to stay small. When Reese was born I was so scared that I would miss everything when she got bigger. Don't worry, you end up not missing it because you're too busy enjoying them every minute as they grow!
