Happy Birthday, Bennett!!!


Bennett, today you turn 2 years old.

Instead of listing off all of the cute little things you do, and believe me, you do a lot of them, I think you should know how incredibly special you are to me. And you need to know all of the wonderful things you have accomplished already - how you have inspired me.

Did you know that your name 'Bennett' means "little blessed one"? And little boy, you are blessed. You're blessed with a family that loves you more than life itself. But more than anything, you have been the blessing to us.

To watch you grow has brought me such joy, I still can't believe how big you've gotten. You have such a silly and sweet nature about you, and you have the ability to bring a smile to people's faces as soon as they come in contact with you. At just 2 years old, you have managed to help me grow more as a person in the last 24 months than I have in my entire life. You have taught me how to love unconditionally. You've taught me the importance of enjoying life, even when things are tough. You have taught me how to be more patient and nurturing. You have taught me what it means to truly put someone else before myself. You have shown me that life isn't just about what I want, but that it's about making other people happy & that the more I give of myself - the more joy I will find in life. Wait, aren't I the one that is supposed to be teaching you these life lessons?? And for this Bennett, I am grateful for you. I am grateful for the love and happiness you bring to everyone around you. And I'm thankful for all that you have done for our family, without even knowing it. 

I'm so proud of you, my sweet little Bennett Roy. You are my light.
