So Big

Sometimes Benjamin enjoys hanging out in his crib. Really, I get him in the morning and he often requests to be put back in there. If I ask to pick him up, he says "oh" (which is "no") and continues to sit happily and body slam his pillow.

Thursday morning was no different. He had a lot to say and was pointing out various things in the room and the pointed to the framed picture (of like 10 of his relatives, including his mama, mind you) and said "Dad" on repeat.

I told him his dad loved him. And then I asked him how much he thought his dad loved him.

He threw out his arms and said "BIG".

We both tell him we love him big all the time and he's now starting to say it himself. There's no denying it... we love this little boy so BIG.

What a sweet boy! I just love seeing photos of him and hearing about him. He is such a loving soul.

So glad he knows how loved he is! and he looks 12 years old in this photo.

What is with these babies adoring their daddies though? Scott's been out all day and Grace has been shouting "dad, dad, dad!" all day. Lull in conversation? "dad!", Asking her if she wants to read a book (always yes), followed by her slamming it in my face and yelling, you guessed it- "daddy!".

Oh my lord I love that. And I love that he totally KNOWS that he's loved Big. So big.
Catherine just this week has started doing 'big' with her arms out wide just like that. I'll have to ask her the same question. Will let you know what she says (or if she gives me the 'duh...don't quite know what you mean there mom' struck dumb stoic Norwegian face.) :)

I love you big too, Ben. You're just one of the best people, it's already so obvious!!
