Big Ben


My little man turned 4 yesterday! I can hardly believe it. Words can't even express how much I love this kid! He is such a sweet and tender-hearted boy and he's just growing up way too fast. We had a fun mini-party for him yesterday, but next week I'm taking the kids to Gettysburg for a week to visit my family (My little bro is playing Tony in West Side Story!!) and we'll have a fire engine birthday party then. So I'll post more pics of the festivities when I get back, but I was just reminiscing tonight about these last 4 years with my sweet Benny. The following is from a scrapbook page I made last year entitled "My little man"...

I saw something in this picture I don't see very often... a glimpse of my little boy growing up. Your growth seems to be so gradual that sometimes I hardly realize it's happening. It isn't until I look back at pictures of you that I wonder where the time has gone. That's why I cherish every moment of your childhood, because someday, you'll go off on your own... independent and capable. Someday you will become a man with a family of your own. Someday you too will look back on your years as a boy and wonder where the time has gone. Benjamin, I know that Heavenly Father has sent you to this earth for an important purpose and that you are destined for greatness, but no matter how old you grow, or what you accomplish in this life, you will always be MY LITTLE MAN.

Hey Nicole - I love your new blog background! And Benny is SUCH a doll! I love how many pictures you post of your children, it's so fun to see. Have you decided which Halloween theme to go with this year?
