Having fun

Benjamin received this really cool lights and sounds music toy at Christmas from his G.G and Grandpa Mac. I decided to pull it out of his closet yesterday to see what he thought of it. He was hysterical to watch and it took him no time at all to figure out how to make it work. Thanks You G.G and Grandpa Mac!!!

4 month well baby

~Ben had his 4 month well baby on Thursday and he is 100% perfect. He weighed in at 15#10 oz and 26 1/2 inches long(he's gonna be a tall guy!) The Dr gave us a heads up that we need to go ahead and start baby proofing the house because he is very advanced with his motor skills and will be on the move very soon. This is exciting and scary at the same time! He was impressed with how vocal he was for his age and told us to watch out! :) Adam says he obviously gets that from me :) He's also being treated for a mild case of thrush that will hopefully clear up here soon and won't go back until the beginning of June for his 6 month visit.

Cute as a bug!

~While we were away on our adventures Benjamin received a beautiful quilt from my friend Martha in Ohio. Ben loves the bright colors and talking to the bugs :) Today he was having some playtime on it and decided to sit up for the first time all on his own. My little baby is changing so fast!

Thanks again Martha for the beautiful/colorful quilt and give the kids hugs and kisses for us.

And we're back!

Benjamin and I had a wonderful time on our little 3 week East coast adventure. We flew to Nana and Papa's then drove to Myrtle Beach to meet up with my brother and his wife and their girls. Then after a wonderful week on the coast we headed back to there place in North Carolina for another week and then drove back to Florida for 2 days before getting on a plane to fly home. It was cold and rainy the last week of our trip but we still had a great time. Benjamin got to spend lots of time with his cousins and already misses them tons. I think he keeps looking around wondering where all the noise went to :). He loved hearing Mikayla sing silly songs and Adelyn was always close by to offer him his Bob(this is what she calls her Pacifier). She was very helpful and you could tell he thought she was the coolest thing ever. she would walk around with her pacifier in her mouth and hold one of his and say Ben's bob...Ben's bob...Ben's bob, it was the cutest thing ever!!!!

We will get a little break from traveling before we head off to St Louis in June for cousin Laura's wedding. Hopefully he will be an excellent flier then too!!
