My Miracle Baby

The reason why I call my beautiful healthy number four baby a Miracle is because to me he is. I didn't think I could have anymore, I was so happy after having 2 miscarriages to finally carry this one to term. My first miscarriage was at 11 weeks, the most horrible thing I have ever gone through. It is not only physical pain, but so emotional, especially when I got to see the little thing, it had arms.... anyway then my second one went until 9 weeks. The doctor told me that because my Endometriosis had spread. I most likely couldn't have anymore.

Now you know why he was a miracle. My healthy baby boy, Zachary R. Benson March 12. He had the easiest deliveries ever!! But boy was he big 8lbs 10 oz. I knew he was going to be big but not that big. I love him.. Though it was hard for Karlie, she prayed for three years for a sister. She was so sad that it was a boy. But now she loves him so much and takes care of him.


So I think I finally caught up a little. Here is my big belly one week over due with our baby #4

Went to a petting farm at the Library. Nathan saw a girl from school and hid, all red face. So I ask him, is that your girlfriend? He didn't answer. The girl Yuki chases him down and says Hi Nathan! He just freezes. She had to come up to him and drag him to see the animals. So cute. Gavin (my 3 y old) said mom! I have a girlfriend...who's that. He points to this old lady in overalls, straw hat holding a pig, by a tractor. I said her...pointing to her. Yes! I love her... she drives tractors.

Gavins Birthday

Oops out of order. Gavin's 3rd Birthday, we went to a huge truck party at a park by our house. They had fire engines, bulldozers, street sweepers, every kind of truck you can think of, but of course the best one was the garbage truck. And Gavin got to go inside and pretend to be his dream a garbage man.

Here is our Christmas....

Our cute little town has Santa come on a fire Engine to every house. My kids wait up in their PJ's just to sit in the cold on his lap for a candy cane.

Still a little behind. Here is our pumpkins we carved for Halloween. I was so proud of my kids. Nathan draw, designed and carved his all by himself. Karlie and dad designed and carved hers. Gavin not quite old enough to carve, painted and stickered all by himself.

Gavin's Garbage Truck Costume

Gavin since he was 10 months old has been completely in love with Garbage Trucks. He'll sit and watch a garbage truck pick up garbage from house to house for hours.
We thought we would out grow it, but never did. He cried and cried to be one for Halloween, so I decided to make one. It was so easy. And it turned out pretty good for my first time making a Halloween costume.

Pumpkin Picking

Our annual pumpkin picking. We go to Sheafers farm and take a hayride to a massive fields and fields of pumpkins. But this year was a little different, because of hurricane Irene. It ruined all the pumpkin, and squash crops around here. So they the farm bought pumpkins from a store and had them placed in the field to "look" like they had grown there. My kids couldn't tell the difference. But we've never had such prefect orange and round pumpkins before.

Gavin's First Day of Preschool

Everyday, I can't believe how big they get so fast.

Apple Picking

We love NJ! The farms are so beautiful. We went to the Melick's apple grove. They are organic which makes them even better. We picked so many apples. I ended up putting up, 40 large quart size bottles of apples sauce, making 4 large apple pies, and we still had the eat apples all month.
