Well, it is an awesome name!! I have prayed our little boy will live up to the bravery associated with his name. He has already beaten a bad congenital heart condition and went through open heart surgery like a true warrior! We are super proud of him!!

Cool, I was really wondering what was up with the scar. We also felt the name would be very fitting considering the history. Good stuff!

Thanks Shawn for posting these pics; they're great! Benaiah looks terrific!

I love the one of him totally going for the plastic with icing rather than the cake with icing.

Hey, I just had to get hooked up like that too, but I didn't get a binky. What's up with that!

Shawn, isn't it awesome when God answer prayers of people far away? Seeing your sons story has SO encouraged me. He is precious!

He is too cute, Shawn. I think this one is my favorite!



"I AM the birthday boy!!!!!"
He looks like he is about ready to give a "manly" belch or he might just be high on sugar.


HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY BENAIAH!!!

Awesome pics, Shawn! He looks great. That cake obviously didn't know who it was up against
Keep the updates coming!
