Today my Benjamin… my 3rd son, turns 5 years old.
5 years old.
I simply cannot believe it.
I know I’ve told this story before on my blog, but it’s important to me and it’s very special. I miscarried a in March of 2006 and it was extremely devastating to me. I remember my doctor telling me I could try to get pregnant again that May… and I’ll tell you what, I not only wanted to get pregnant, I needed to get pregnant. There was healing that needed to be done, and I knew that this baby-to-be (whomever they were) would be the answer to my prayers. I found out in July of 2006 that I was pregnant… and I was the HAPPIEST woman on the planet!! My pregnancy with Benjamin was a nervous one. I was terrified with every ache and pain. I just wanted the 40 weeks to fly by and I wanted this baby in my arms to hug and to kiss.
On April 4, 2007… a beautiful little boy arrived to me and Matt, our Benjamin.
And today that beautiful little boy, the one I yearned for and prayed for turns 5 years old!!
I am so in love with my little Benjamin.
He brings so much laughter and happiness and joy into our home.
All he wants today for his birthday is a little kitten (which he isn’t getting), but was just as happy with a light saber and lego guys. I wish for him a year of beauty and wonder and FUN!!
I love you Benjamin more than anything in the world… you are my heart and my light.
My Boogie-boo… !
