On April 22, 2009 ...

Bensen was born! He weighed a hefty 9 lbs 6 oz, was 21 inches long, had a 14.5 inch head and gorilla hands. He was absolutely perfect.

In spite of my best efforts my sweet baby is growing up. This calls for cake! This calls for celebration! This calls for a few mommy tears shed in private. He really was the sweetest, most perfect little baby.

"I'm going to gobble up the whole first year of your life! It is gone for good!"

A little help from big sister seems to be in order!!

Don't worry, Bensen got a lot more fun gifts than this. Just had to document what Brett got for Bensen on his big day. Classic Brett.

He really is the sweetest, most perfect little one year old.

Some 1 year old stats!
  • Gives kisses on demands
  • Says Daddy when prompted
  • Does all the actions for patty cake
  • Record of 6 unaided steps
  • Sings along with the piano
  • Dances along to any music
  • Loves to eat MEAT and nothing else!
  • Drinks from a straw and a sippy cup
  • Loves to snuggle
  • 28 lbs!
  • 4 top teeth, 2 bottom teeth
  • 3 hair cuts to date, and in need of a 4th!
