Tomorrow Benny will be 23 weeks old in gestation. Since I found out at 6 weeks about him I have always spoken to him. We always say our prayers before bed out loud together, I know he can't say anything but I do remind him to say, "Amen," because he can at least think it lol. Then I made up a special song for him (only 4 lines) and I sing it. Then I tell him what was good about the day with him and how very good of a baby he is. It's our little thing but you know what's odd? He calms down aft... Tue, 10 May 2016 21:42:22 EST Baby Details!
