Benson

Benson-4bw Benson-1 Benson-2
In case you didn't know, we had a baby boy.

I've been so busy holding onto every moment I have with this little babe that I never got around to writing a blog post about his birth! Little Benson was born last week on Wednesday, and to be honest I kinda want to do it again. Am i crazy?! There is something about the labor, holding your baby for the first time and finding out the gender for the first time that can not compare to anything in the world. It's something that you can't put into words, and with each child I feel like I'm learning to love and treasure that moment more. I can't even tell you how grateful I am for this little boy and all of my boys! But when a new baby is brought into a home it's forever changed. Our home is different and little Benson has brought a sweet, tender spirit into our lives and we are just in heaven. We sure are in love.

Such a beautiful baby. I love that you caught a picture of his eyes open. It's true you'will find that it's so hard to stop having babies. They (you) bring such joy.

Hello Shelby & Brandon,
Congratulations on the safe delivery of a much loved Son, Benson. The love that you two hold for each other will transcend to all of your sons. There will be three wonderful young men & future Fathers raised in you caring hands. I feel that you have more children to take care of in the future, girls & boys to soak up the love and gentleness that you have to pass on. Love from Maureen in Australia.
