Much Love

My boys are so lucky to have such wonderful grandparents who love them so much. I am so glad that my boys have such special relationships with their grandparents.

Not wanting to miss the big event, my mom came and stayed with me for the week before Ben arrived. She was a HUGE help. She did my laundry, cleaned my house, fixed fantastic meals, played with the boys for hours so I could rest, and walked with me for miles to induce labor, and held my hand while I was in labor. I LOVED having her here--mostly just her company. I had a small panic attack when she went back home yesterday, worrying that she spoiled me and I wouldn't be able to manage on my own. If I could afford to pay her, I would hire her permanently. Thanks for all your help, Mom! I love you!

Although I'm sure it may be a little overwhelming at first--I know you'll do great! You always do.

Courtney, Thank you for allowing me to share in welcoming little baby Ben into the world. What a great experience it was for me to be a part of that event. I loved spending time with your sweet family. I love you too.
