Bennett: 2 weeks!

Oh my sweet baby boy.

As I write this, you are peacefully sleeping. I look over at you and I'm amazed. You have fit into this family so effortlessly and even though it's only been two weeks, we feel like you've been in our lives forever. I can't help but look at you and Brady and just feel a magnitude of emotions. I don't want to forget a moment of how life is at this moment and I'm trying to soak it all in.
 Your brother loves you so much. The first thing he asks about when he wakes up is you and what you are doing. He loves to touch you, give you kisses and just help out with you. He's my biggest helper and I have to say, I'm proud of the brother he's becoming.

You are ever so sweet my boy. You're a bit of a light sleeper sometimes and I joke, you need to learn to sleep a bit deeper especially as you're brother is running around acting like a freight train. You about scared mommy to death the other night when you slept for almost SIX hours! I woke up in a fret and you were just sleeping away peacefully.

There was a 24 hour period last Friday where mommy got a bit exhausted because you wanted to! I got a bit worried hoping you were developing reflux like you brother (mommma is a bit paranoid about his, ok!) and the next day you went back to you sleepy self.

Nursing is going so well that I'm afraid to say that since we are only two weeks in but you haven't had a lick of formula and momma is pretty shocked at how well it's going.  I went into it with no expectations and I think that helped. I do have to say, how much I love those big ol' lips of yours, they are so stinking cute and kissable. You smiled in your sleep yesterday a big smile and I think I caught glimpse of a dimple!

The weather has been ridiculous as in yesterday, it hit a record temp of 108 so we've been stuck inside but enjoying our time together as a family. It's bit hard on me since I'm used to going all the time but since Daddy is still home, we are savoring it as we know this much time together is precious and will be hard to gather when you are older.

I can't wait to see what kind of personality you'll develop as you grow. We love you to pieces.
