A Year in the Life- Mr. B. 's First Year

If I had one of those blogs where music starts playing as soon as the blog loads, I would have you all listening to Seasons of Love from the musical RENT, if you do not have it in your own personal music library you should definitely google it and give it a listen. Basically the song begins by saying:

"Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand
Six Hundred Minutes
How Do You Measure - Measure A Year?"

Within the song it goes to detail creative ways of how to "measure" mentioning sunsets, cups of coffee and other things not relevant in the life of of a little boy (or girl). But the overall message boils down that a life is ultimately "measured in love" and Benton's first year was definitely a year of love.

We loved him from the moment we laid eyes on him.

We loved him even more as he began to grow bigger and stronger.

So many more people fell in love with you Mr. B:

Grandma and Grandpa Bury

Grandma Sherri and Grandpa Dave (not pictured)

Your Aunts, Uncles and Cousin Hyrum could not (and still cannot) get enough of you

Although not a cuddler by nature, you have still managed to let everyone know that you love them back. Your first year of life was a wonderful one. Truly filled with more love than words can describe.
