As some of you know, we didn't name Benjamin until he was in my arms. We had a few names picked out but he just really looked like a Benjamin.

His middle name is my Grandfathers name - Angelo. I always knew when my Grandfather passed away that I would name my baby after him if it was a boy.

I never knew the meaning of his name so I looked it up just now and here is what it said:

Hebrew, Spanish: Son of the right hand; In the Bible, Benjamin was the patriarch Jacob's youngest son. His mother Rachel died giving birth to him and in her last moments of life named him Benoni, meaning "son of my sorrow." His father did not want him to have such an ominous moniker and renamed him Binyamin.

That is kind of a sad meaning
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy
