Happy 5th Birthday, Bennett!!!

My sweet, loving, amazing first born son turned five yesterday. FIVE YEARS OLD you guys. I'm not going to sit here and talk about how crazy fast time seems to be flying by, because that's a given.

I'm really having a hard time (as usual) getting any thoughts out, so I'll just make it short and sweet.


I'm sitting here at the computer, trying to figure out how to put into words what I'm feeling. Five years ago, your Dad and I were on our way to the hospital, feeling both anxious and excited about meeting you! I never realized how instantly and unconditionally I could love someone, until you were born. Over the years, you have taught me about purity and kindness in a way that no one else could. I've mentioned this before, but you truly have a heart of gold. You are a people pleaser, and want nothing more than to bring happiness to others, and believe me when I say that you do. You bring a smile to so many people's faces, because your sweet spirit is contagious. You set that example to so many, every single day.

At Five Years Old, here are a few of your favorite things!
