Bennett Lawrence Swift


Here he is, Bennett Lawrence Swift. Of course I have to put a couple of ugly pictures up because when they are first born, they look anything but human. He has all of his fingers and toes, weighs 8 lbs even, 19.5 inches long, and thin light brown hair. Kerri did great and looks good with her new short hair-do.




Bennett loves to sleep on his Dad's chest. He spent most of his time both nights in the hospital there on his chest if he was not breast feeding. It was nice having him sleep on my chest until he got hungry and then would start trying to suckle and then it was weird.




Here is the obligatory molester picture. What true Swift photo collection would be complete without it.







He is the family shot. When we first introduced Maddox, he looked at Bennett for about 30 seconds and then wanted to play with his soccer ball. True brotherly love, he already wants nothing to do with him. And yes, when someone asks him to initial something later on in life, he will initial it BS. I think that will be a fitting nickname.
