Bennett is completely different from how Ainsley and Harper were as babies. I worked full time with them and went back to work once they were 3 months old. They never really got that separation anxiety thing and I remember crying to the girl's babysitter because I couldn't understand why my girls never cried when I dropped them off or how come I wasn't that one person that could make it all better when they were babies?
Well with Bennett it's different-now granted he has been with me and only me since day 1 but this kid adores me quite frankly. And I have to admit it makes me smile a little that he practically throws himself at me if someone else is holding him and he sees me coming. I just never had that with the girls. So he's a mama's boy, through and through.
I plunked him in the grass to see if I could get some cute shots. He wasn't thrilled about the grass.
But he tolerated it.
Just kinda felt weird to him I guess. But I did get some cute shots:)
And then we got the pout (that's usually our warning to pick him up quick before it gets ugly).
Well we didn't get to him quick enough and he let us have it. And the only person that could make it all better...
was his mama.
I've always heard friends that have boys say there was something special between a mother and her son and I never really got it because I had girls and I felt like our relationship was pretty special too.
But now I totally get it. There really is something special and I never thought I'd ever have a son because I had two girls and just assumed our third would be a girl. All I can say is that I'm thrilled to have a mama's boy! I hope he'll always come to me when he needs someone to make it all better.
