Welcome Baby Sawyer

A post from Daddy.

Dear baby Sawyer,
What a blessing you are to your mommy and me!
I couldn’t sleep for days as I eagerly anticipated the special moment that you would be born.  I couldn’t wait to see what you would look like, if you would have hair, if your lips would be swollen like Wesley’s were, if you would open your eyes and smile, if you would have dimples (mommy is very happy that you do), if you would sleep and eat.  It has been overwhelming loving you in person the past couple of days.  You have the most caring, loving and amazing mom.  I am excited for you to have an older brother; I have one and it is awesome.  I especially can’t wait for many memories as a new family of four.  This video captures our special memories of your special birthday. I love you more than you know- Daddy

  127. I have been following this blog for a while but have never commented before. I have to say, congrats Ashley and Ben on your precious bundle of joy. Baby Sawyer is beautiful. The video literally made me cry……so sweet and Sawyer will be able to watch it some day and know how much his Mommy and Daddy love him. You two are amazing parents and the love you have for your two boys is evident.

  128. CONGRATS! Love the name and of course, the gorgeous little man! xoxo

  130. What a great video! So amazing! Congrats!!

  131. Natalie says:

    Congratulations on Sawyer’s birth! I love the video you made for him — he will certainly enjoy watching that when he is a little bit older. My daughter used to watch videos of herself all the time…of course, maybe that wasn’t a good thing… Anyway, Ashley looks so beautiful in the picture, she looks like a model pretending to have just had a baby; since I know how difficult her pregnancy was, I won’t begrudge her that. Congratulations to you all, and I hope everything is going well at home.

  132. Congrats!! Sawyer is so beautiful 🙂

  133. This is so beautiful, I totally got a little teary eyed.. Congratulations!! You have a precious family!

  134. Congratulations! God Bless your new bundle of joy!
