Our Pride and Joy! Bentley Update

Day 6. Mom left today so it was hard to say goodbye. Things will definately be alot tougher without her and we already miss her tons. Bentley loved her soothing voice and gentle touch. Thanks again Mom. Jon has also been such a support to me and has taken on the role of fatherhood amazingly. He is a natural and is so good to Bentley and I. I couldn't do it without him. Thanks babe.










Day 4 and 5. Here are pics of Bentley's bath time. My mom is such a great teacher and I would be lost without her. He doesn't mind parts of his bath which are good but I'm sure when I can use his little bath tub he will like them alot better. He is already changing so much and starting to fill out. I have learned so much these past few days and I am trying to take it all in. Being a good mom and wife are the most important roles I can play so I am trying my best to learn all that I can from my mom. She has been such a great example to me and Jon and we are so lucky to have had her here. Feeding him was has been quite a frustrating thing for Bentley and I but we are both starting to catch on and Bentley is such a good helper. We spent Valentines day all together. We ordered our favorite pizza and Jon rented a cute movie for us all to watch. He got me so beautiful red roses and he got me and my mom our favorite candy.






Jons sister Jen and her family stopped to stay with us on there way to California. They are going to disneyland with there kids. They brought us a cute Jersey for Bentley of Jons favorite hockey team the Oilers.... They tricked him first by giving him a flames jersey which he hated. haha. It was fun to have Bentley meet his cousins Jade and Noah.



This is us with Bentley on Day 2 and Day 3. He is so handsome and perfect in every way( I'm his mom so I can brag can't I (: ) He loves to play with his hands. I think they comfort him when they are by his face so we always have them covered so he doesn't scratch his face. He has beautiful deep dark blue eyes and he will just stare at you when he is awake with them.






Here we are at the hospital. Jon already told the labor story but I just wanted to post some pics of us with the baby when he was brand new. My mom and Jon were so good to help me through the labor pains, I don't know what I would have done without them. Having this little guy has changed my life comepletley. I don't think I could love any thing more. He is so sweet and has been such a good baby. My mom and best friend were so sweet to send me flowers while I was in the hospital and my cousins Curtis, Candace, and Alli came to visit so I just wanted to say thank you.

He is so cute! Hello, you look so good! I hope the pics of me in the hospital never get released. I think he has your nose. I balled the day my mom left, haha. I bet it was just as hard for her.
