Benson loves to eat pancakes for breakfast. He especially loved the candles and wanted to blow them out more than once. After breakfast he said, "mom, I'm growing up way fast." I said, "I know Benson, I guess I shouldn't feed you anymore vegetables- only candy." He giggled and then said, (I'm not joking- this is true) "And mom, I'm going on a mission. . . . tomorrow." Hold up little guy- not so fast. I know it will feel like 'tomorrow', but just hearing him say that was sobering. The sad thing was that for me in so many ways it feels like we just added him to our family, and then he turned three the next day. However, it feels like my life before Benson is so far away, as if he's been a part of my life for so much longer than three years. Oh, he is such my little buddy!!! This was the beginning of a fun day!
He's always been in to golf- hence the golf theme.
I loved it because it's so him.ew
It was a really fun day and we appreciated all of our family coming to celebrate with us. We had a great time and Benson felt like the center of attention! This marks the beginning of another stage of Benson's growth and development. They change so fast as babies, but I feel like they change just as fast at this age too. He's always coming up with new ideas, funny comments, and has a constant and strong desire to "grow up and get bigger". I am so lucky to get to witness these daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly changes that influence me, teach me, change me, and make me love him more and more. Benson is truly an AWESOME kid!
