One Month Down.




Slow down! How has one month already gone by? I'm actually feeling a little sad that these weeks have gone by so fast. But I am so happy that both my kiddos are doing great and love each other so much. Ben will stop crying if Lily holds him. And, she wins the award for the best big sis! Currently her mission is to keep Ben free of spit up. She is all over it!

Here are a few new photos of the Stone duo.

Growing

video

25 days and Ben is getting bigger by the minute. A little guy at birth, he has gained over a pound and is fitting into some of his new duds! Here is a little video of Ben and Lily this evening as we waited for Papa to serve up some pancakes (did you know today was National Pancake Day!).

LOVE




Grandma Cupid brought this adorable tricycle to Lily for Valentines Day. All I have to say is, "I love this child."

Who is having the best week ever?









Today is Ben's 3 week birthday! Time is already going way too fast. 

He is a darling little boy. Sweet and peaceful. He smells like heaven and his little coo's make my heart flutter. I am taking in every bit of him - his soft skin, sugary breath, the way his fingers curl around mine and the cool touch of his nose to my cheeks. He loves to tuck his head right under my chin. And, just the stroke of my hand on his head puts him to sleep (most of the time).

I'm not just in love with him. I am in love with this whole experience. And savoring it much more than I did the first time. For one, I know now just how quickly this will pass. And, this might be our last baby. So every moment is precious and I am trying to file all of it away in my memory.

Being a mom to two is suiting me just fine. Lily is the best of what childhood has to offer. And Ben is reminding me how precious new life is.....this has been the best three weeks ever!!!!!
