Bennett Willis Sharp

My beautiful sister and I have been so blessed to be pregnant together not once, but TWICE! Averie and Caleb are only a month apart to the day and Bryken and Bennett are two months almost to the day!  Bryken was born on the 5th and Bennett was born on the 6th.  I told Kylee she needed to have him on the 5th but she didn't listen to me.  Kylee had a bit of a difficult recovery with this sweet boy and ended up in the hospital.  Her blood pressure was super high and she was retaining fluid and experiencing chest pain.  She suffered pericarditis.  It was terrifying and I am so grateful that she is now home and doing better.  I was able to go up and see her a few days ago and she let me take some pictures of sweet Bennett.  I am by no means a photographer, but we sure had fun and got some tender pictures of her cute little boy.  I only managed to get peed on once!  Love this sweet Benny Boy!








Bryken's Blessing Day

Bryken was blessed on May 3rd and I am just a little slow to post about it.  It was such a beautiful day and everything just went perfectly.  I am such a basket case lately and I was so stressed out about his blessing.  I bought his outfit a couple of weeks ago and I thought it would be so cute with a little bowtie.  I, of course, waited until the last minute and just wanted to go out and buy one.  It proved to be much more difficult than I thought and I couldn't find one that was small enough for him.  I went to the Quilted Bear and they did not have any that were white.  I finally settled on buying a baby girl's headband and bow.  It was the perfect size and it worked as a bowtie.  Flash forward to the day before the blessing.  Can't find the stupid thing ANYWHERE. I go back to the Quilted Bear and since it is more of a made by hand store, there of course is not another one.  Sigh...  Luckily I was able to find just a little clip on bow and a separate headband.  It worked and I don't think anyone could tell (until now that is).  Just look at this handsome little bubba.  Blanket is compliments of Cathi Anderson.  She makes the most beautiful afghans.  His little outfit and shoes are from White Elegance and you know the story behind the bowtie.

 I'm really disappointed that I didn't get more pictures on this wonderful day.  I really appreciate all of our family that was able to make it that day.  Not pictured: Aunt Debbie and Uncle Chuck, Kim and Dan Foster Family, Kelli and John McDevitt Family, AmyLyn and Andy Payne Family, Holly and Ryan Payne Family.  I am terrible at running the show and taking pictures as well.  Here are some pictures that I did get.

I am so grateful for the gospel and the wonderful experiences that we get to have.  This day was such a sacred one and I am so glad that Bryken was able to be blessed by his daddy.  I will never forget the words that Brian spoke and the spirit that was felt.  I am so grateful for such a wonderful family that was able to support us on this day.  We truly are blessed and I love you all!
