New Year's Eve

Daddy and Benjamin getting ready for the fireworks to start
Mama and Nathaniel patiently waiting

Benjamin enjoying Canadian Smarties during the fireworks show!

The grand finale!

Apparently fireworks shows are exhausting when you're 4 1/2 months old!

Christmas Day

Benjamin discovering what was under the tree!

Playing with the forklift Mama and Daddy got him (the biggest hit of the day)

Nathaniel "opening" his presents

Benjamin opening his next gift; from Lala and Papa

Helping Daddy find the right piece for the next part of the train track

Playing with the train set from Lala and Papa. Daddy and Benjamin worked on setting it up for quite a long while!

Nathaniel playing with his doggy from Ashleigh..he loved giving his doggy kisses!

Nathaniel playing with his musical butterfly from Grandma Nina

A big fluffy beanbag chair from Grandma Nina! Say cheese!

Benjamin and Nathaniel enjoying the beanbag chair together! Such great brothers!

Nathaniel is no longer needing help sitting up. He is growing so fast!

Naptime finally arrived....the boys passed out....


Benjamin figured that Nathaniel needed to talk on the phone

After dinner, Benjamin, Daddy and Grandma Nina decided to go look at Ho Ho Lights (what Benjamin likes to call them).

Nathaniel and I stayed home and watched "The Nutcracker" on pbs.

We also played on the floor....

....and decided we wanted to reach for our toes and roll on our side....

....luckily, that's as far as he made it. I don't think I'm ready for two kids on the move....I know the day will come though!

Thankfully, we ended the best Christmas (so far) with visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads!

Working backwards

Well, its been many, many weeks since we've updated the blog. Because of this, we are going to work backwards instead of forwards. The next few blogs will the most recent pictures of the boys and our adventures. We'll do our best to post at least once a week!

Snuggly brothers

I really love snuggling my brother Nathaniel. He is my best friend and I love him dearly!

Nathaniel has really started liking to play more now. Here is he snuggling his giraffe that Grandma Nina got for him....I am snuggling them too!

Mama and I made pizza tonight for dinner. I got to help Mama squish my fingers into the dough, spread the red sauce, sprinkle the mushrooms and pepperoni, and shake the cheese all over! I had a great time!

All our love,
Benjamin and Nathaniel
