Just wanted to share something adorable Benny said this morning to me, a special tidbit that didn't make it to Facebook. Until I share this link :)

One of the things we've been trying to do is get a few of the small things that Benny has in his room at home, trying to make him more comfortable here, hoping he'll stop asking to go home while we're here!

One of his favorite night time reads is a book called Sleepyhead, a cute little story about a kid who wants 'one more kiss, one more hug...' before going to sleep. Benny knows this book by heart. I can start the line and he can finish the page. 

I found it on Amazon and ordered it, hoping to surprise him tonight by reading it at bedtime.

He saw it on my bed this morning, while I was straightening up the room. His reaction was beyond amazing. One of those times I wish I was recording everything on secret, hidden cameras everywhere!

Benny, upon seeing the book, eyes wide: "MOMMY IT'S MY SLEEPYHEAD BOOK!!!!!"
After a second of contemplation: "Mommy, I didn't bring it with me."
Another second of thought: "Mommy, my room sent it to me!!!!!"

I love this boy. Truly, madly, deeply.
