Time with Mommy

School is almost out for Stephen so Bentley and I are enjoying our last days of alone Mommy/Bentley time for the year. He is so excited Stephen will be home and they have the whole summer planned, but I know he will miss his Mommy time when its just us. Steve and I are going to start doing date nights when we each take a child and do something special one on one with them. It goes without saying Stephen is very excited for school to be over. I cant wait to have more time with him, especially doing what he has been talking for days about....going to the pool! Thursday Bentley and I went to Fenton for a photo shoot and to see some friends. He was my little assistant and a very good boy! This is my friend Erins daughter Emily. I cant get over how beautiful she is like her Mommy. I got a few of Bentley, nothing special, except they are because they are him and I cant get over how big he is looking!:(So I just want to journal what he is like right now at four with a few of the photos of my special boy..... 
                                                           BENTLEY is now.....
1. Very independent. He wants to do everything himself and gets very upset if you try and help because he is a "BIG BOY"
2. He loves legos, "guys" , cars, soft blankets and his pillow pet
3.He has been having bad dreams  almost every night like I did growing up and still do:( He dreams about people he loves turning to skeletons, falling out of cars, spiders, and last night he dreampt about falling into a hole and I was too late to save him. Its awful hearing his bad dreams, He wakes up and comes and finds me. I'm glad I'm here for him though and understand how scary dreams can be. We went on a walk tonight before bed and talked about the good things he can dream about. He said Alvin and the chipminks and I said he could dream about living in a castle made of cake.
4. He has a temper and is very stuborn. He yells ITS NOT FAIR a lot. He told me for the first time the other day he didnt want to be my kid anymore because I wouldnt let him watch t.v. in bed:(It was sad but he came out after with a big frown on his face and gave me a big hug and said he was sorry and he still wanted to be my kid...
5. He loves saying prayers and is starting to be very thougtful when praying and really thinks about what he says. He prayers for Stephen at school a lot and for his friends and cousins. He loves primary and knows who Jesus is and knows he is a Child of God. He asks me questions about Heaven and explains to me what Jesus made on our earth for us.
6. He likes books, and is  a great counter. He loves drawing and can write a great B...for Bentley! He also loves playing games on the computer and can log onto on Steves lap top by himself.

7. He loves his Mommy. He misses me when is gone and I'm enjoying every momment while he still wants to be my shadow. I know it wont last forever. He is very sweet to me and cares about my feelings. If I dont feel good or look sad he asks me about it and gives me LOTS of hugs and kisses. He is my sweetheart.
