Meeting Bennett

On Friday, July 30th, Bennett and Lindsey got home from Texas and we were all too excited to wait even a day to see them and meet our newest nephew. It was so amazing to see this little guy.....all 5 pounds of him. I'd never seen a baby so small much less held one. He was cuter than we even imagined and we are so happy for Pat and Lindsey.

The boys all made signs to hang at their house for when they got home. I had to share this one that Tony and Tanner made. Tony wrote the words (spelled everything on his own except "Welcome") and drew the picture of "Benit" under the rainbow with "God" looking over him. He also helped Tanner draw a picture of "H " . Tanner drew the picture of the family. Pat reaching up to put his arm around "Lindsey" as she holds "Benit" on her lap. How cute is that. I love when kids are learning to spell and they sound out their words.
I made an impromptu cake for the event that matched his room....and I did it before even knowing that it would match. Pretty cool.

This is me holding him for the first time. I had never seen, much less held, a little peanut that small. He's just soooo cute and he was looking right at me. Adorable!

All the cousins waiting their turn. Little Ben was causing quite the excitement.

Tanner's turn.....

Tony's turn....He LOVES babies!

Trae get's a turn.....

Timmy holds Ben next....

And Tyler gets a turn.

Jay finally gets his turn.

This little guy sure is loved already by his whole, large, extended family. We are so excited to be able to see him grow up and be part of this crazy brood.
