Aunt Amanda's Two Cents....

Ok, well-I first must say that I am so thrilled that little Ben waited until I was in the vicinity to make his appearance! Having been at the hospital with Stacy from the beginning-I cannot put into words how amazing she was. She was in pain, having contractions, sleep deprived, and famished-but managed to (bitch!) look beautiful, be polite to each nurse and person who entered her room, and be so brave!!

After many, many, many hours of contractions and waiting, she was given the "ok" to start pushing! I won't spill the beans about how long it took or what she went through, but I will tell you that it was so worth it! Ben is the cutest kid I've ever seen-and so sweet! He makes the cutest faces (even the little "elvis face" that Stacy made when she was a baby)! He is the perfect combination of James and Stacy--and I cannot wait to see him grow up! (Although....I don't really want him to ever get any bigger)! :)

what can I say, Benjamin Everett Hawken was well worth the wait! I know he is my grandson but can I just tell you how absolutely adorable and sweet he is! not only that but he can actually LIFT his head and move it around, I kid you not! How am I ever going to leave him? not to mention Pawpaw, he is totally enamored, should we move to Charlotte? after all, Stacy & James, John and Amanda and now our little joy Ben are here? oh if only! welcome my little darling boy! love you! Grammy & Pawpaw

Aw, I'm jealous that you're all there (but so glad that Stacy had her amazing family with her for the big event). Can't wait to see y'all again and meet the new arrival!
