Celebrating Ben!

We had a party with our friends and a few family members on Saturday evening to celebrate Ben's adoption. God has blessed us with such an encouraging support system and we wanted them to write blessings for Ben's adoption story book. That picture above is Ben with Davey and Eva. Ben is 3 1/2 weeks younger than Davey and Eva, who were born a day apart at the end of October. The mommas decided we needed to have pictures taken regularly of them together. [The first one is here.]

Here are my girlfriends [including one sister-in-law] who were at the party. Below is one of my favorite moments of the night. Sarah is a [relatively] new friend to our family. We've loved getting to know her, Nathan and now Davey. Apparently, Cate enjoys her too because she requested her company for some foot tracing and coloring.


On another Ben-related note: He's slept "through the night" three consecutive times. I told you about the first one. That was six hours. Then the next night it was 7. [Just needing a pacifier to tide him over for the last couple hours of that stretch.] And last night it was 7 1/2 hours with no pacifier insertion necessary. Gradually, we're hoping to move the 11:30 p.m. feeding to an earlier time, all the while stretching out his nights.
