How can that be? For serious?
Ben, you are just incredible. And I mean that literally. I sometimes can't believe that you are real.
You are nearly always happy and you bring our family so much joy. It's verging on ridiculous. You're still so intrigued by the fact that you have hands. Since two months old you will stare at them, ponder them, and study them for a good few minutes at a time. It makes me wonder the things you'll do with them when you're big. You vocalize and it is so sweet and mild. No matter how awkwardly your brothers try to haul you around or when your naps are thrown off and what you really want is just to sleep, you still smile like you're choosing joy. I love it and I don't deserve it. I'm pretty glad God gave you to us even though I was a little bit scared to death of the gift. He's like that, isn't He? Just asking us to trust and then blowing us away with what He had waiting.
Thank you, sweet boy, for being you.
