Welcome Grandma and Papa

They've arrived! After an unexpected night in Detroit, Grandma and Papa finally made it for their visit. I got to ride along with Mama and Daddy to go pick them up at the airport and give them their first squdges for their visit.

I also have had a lot of fun showing them what a big boy I am. We played with Baby Tad, sang songs, snuggled, played in my swing, and lot of other things already! I even showed Grandma how I do push ups in my crib.

We're off to go walking at the mall and to check out our new house. Tomorrow is moving day!

I love you,

Sickie Day

Well, it was a sickie day for me today. I slept in with Mama this morning because I wasn't feeling too well.

Mama and I snuggled a lot today because of my fever. She called the nurse at Dr. Arispe's office to make sure that my fever wasn't too high. The nurse said that the first 24 hours after vaccinations, kids can get fevers. So Mama and I just took it easy today. I got to take a lukewarm bath and splash around--that helped bring my fever down, besides the yummy grape tylenol Mama gives me.

I am hoping that tomorrow I feel better because my Grandma Sheila and Papa Ron are coming to visit me! The last time I saw them was over the Thanksgiving holiday.

I've grown a lot since then and can't wait to show them! I also can't wait to give them a squdge. I'd better head to bed now so that I have energy for tomorrow.

I love you,Benjamin

My BIG day

It was a very busy day for me. I finally turned 4 months old. Mama and Daddy think I'm growing super fast--I am having fun doing it!

Mama and I spent the day together. I did a lot of playing and napping--don't you wish you could nap like I do?

Daddy came home so that we could all go to Dr. Arispe's office for my 4 month well-check visit. I am a BIG boy! I now weigh 18 pounds 4 1/4 ounces and am 25 3/4 inches long.

Dr. Arispe said that since I am so healthy with drinking the milk Mama gives me, that I don't need to start on cereal or food yet. But that if Mama and Daddy thought I was super hungry, they could try it. Well, since I heard Dr. Arispe say that, I figured I would be a very hungry boy tonight. So Mama went and got some rice cereal for me and gave me some. I didn't quite know what to think at first, but I ended up really enjoying it!

It was a quiet evening with Mama giving me my bath, singing me my songs, and praying with me as I drifted off to sleep. I am looking forward to another BIG day tomorrow!
I love you,

Meet my friend

Baby Tad! I love singing songs with him. Mama helps me push the buttons on his bib when we play. I got Baby Tad from my Great Aunt Sue for Christmas--what a great present!

I love you,

Comfy Cozy

I finally got to ride in my new carseat! Daddy installed it last night so that when we went to church this morning I could be safe and comfy. Oh, it was like the cadillac of carseats...although I don't really know what a cadillac is ;) Mama thinks we'll need to get some window shades for the windows though- now that I don't have the shade on my carseat. I'm excited because I get to use my seat again when we go to Bible Study tonight.
This morning at church was my first day in the nursery. Mama thought it would be fun to help out in the nursery at the first church service. There were 5 other babies in there with me. Mama had two other helpers with her though so that we all had a grown-up. I did so good!! I played in the swing, laid on the floor and played with a kick toy, and I got to try out an Exersaucer! I loved the exersaucer! Mama is going to look for one for me when ReRuns comes in March--she finds lots of goodies for me there!

I love you all and hope that you have a good Sunday!

Drum Roll Please.....

Here I am, testing out my new seat. Mama and Daddy haven't installed it yet, but don't I look good anyway! I love being a big boy!


Family Night Out

Hi Everyone!

Last night Mama, Daddy and I dressed up to have a fun night out.

We went to the mall and walked around for a bit. When we were tired of the mall, we decided to go over to Babies R Us to buy me a new carseat. I am already too big for my infant seat. Mama strapped me into the one she reasearched online and I really loved it. It is such a big boy seat! By the time we were ready to leave Babies R Us, it was snowing and blowing out really hard! Mama bundled me up and wheeled me out to the car while Daddy carried my new seat. Daddy made sure to drive extra safe on our way home. We finished out our family night by snuggling and sharing more time together. I can't wait to snuggle all of you!

Happy Valentine's Day

Its my first Valentine's Day! I hope your day has been as good as mine. I started the day by giving Daddy his Valentine's present from me.
The bell rang this morning and the flower shop brought a really pretty bouquet of roses and orchids for Mama from Daddy and I. Then I spent 1/2 of the day with Daddy while Mama went to work. After Mama got home, we played games and took pictures of me in my Valentine's Day bib from Uncle Carl, Auntie Lori and my cousins Kelsie and Kendra.

My Mama was also helping me to stand up from a sitting position. But I didn't really need any help--just to have my Mama hold my hands--because I used my strong muscles to stand up all by myself! Tonight I am going to spend some time with my Grandma Nina while Mama and Daddy have a movie night.
I love you all! Happy Valentine's Day!

Starting to roll!

As I was sitting on my Mama's lap tonight, I started to roll towards my right side. She was watching me carefully to see if I'd go all the way from my back to my belly. I didn't quite make it, but almost!

I love being a big boy!

I'm teething...?

Hi Everyone. My Mama and Daddy think that I might be teething. I love to suck my thumb and chew on anything that is around. I'll let you know as soon as my first tooth comes in!

Mama and I are just hanging out for the day. It snowed overnight and is too cold to go outside.

Until next time,
