Loving Motherhood

I cannot express enough how much I love being a mother! My heart is so full. Benjamin is my new obsession. Jared and I just can't get enough of him. We watch him sleep. Play with him when he is awake.
Benjamin slept for about 3 hours last night and then was awake for a few. He was just content to lay on the bed and look around. I couldn't help but grab the camera and take pictures.

After sleeping for another 3 hours or so Benjamin woke up for a bit and then went back to sleep. Jared and I were pretty well rested so we just watched Benjamin. I made Jared stay still so I could take pics and then took his spot so I could pose.

Benjamin's Granny is in town and enjoying as much as she can with him.

I wanted to make the bed before going to bed tonight and so I asked Jared to help. He picked up Benjamin and was going to move him to his bassinet. But once Jared was holding him he couldn't put him down. Jared is an amazing father and Benjamin has us both wrapped up around his finger.

His hat is a perfect fit huh?

I cannot describe what my heart feels when I look at Benjamin. I'm sure other parents understand.


  1. I understand exactly how you feel! It really is amazing! I know I have said it 100 times, but he is ADORABLE! Love him!

  2. He is pretty amazing isn't he? Cute pictures.
