Happy Little Man

Ok, this may overdo it...but for anyone that want to see some cute Ben pictures...he was in a great mood this morning in his rainbow pants!

Another PwC play date

The next generation of PwC men got together for another play date.  Sean was standing watch over the little ones.  We forgot to take pictures until Ben and Gavin were packed up to go home.  Better luck next time!

Ben's 2 month appointment

Ben had his two month doctor's appointment today and we have once again confirmed we have a growing boy on our hands.  He was 25 1/2 inches long and 14 lbs 12 oz - both in the 100th percentile!  He did just fine with his shots and other than the rash on his forehead, he's a very happy boy!

2 Months and a little catch up

A little catch up...

My parents came to visit last week.  The visit started with a 3-man nap (yes, Ben is under that blanket w/ Nick somewhere):

We tried the bumble seat, but Ben's still a little small for it - well not small, but doesn't quite have control of all his limbs and head yet

With other people here willing to do camera duty, I have a chance to have some pictures taken with my little man

My original baby

With a very fussy Ben on the day I was getting ready for our trip to CT, I tried a few times to get his 2 month pictures with the chair and with Wally, but let's do a comparison:

2 months Wally scale (2 pics):

Ben also met his Great Grandma Jackie ("Gi-Gi") in CT...he LOVED her and spent much of the visit giggling at her from the floor

Finally, I was in my college roommate's wedding this weekend.  The wedding was wonderful and the bride was gorgeous.  Have fun on your honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. Laird!  We were so happy to share in your special day!

Super Baby!!!!

So Ben turned 2 months yesterday and he celebrated by....rolling over!!!!!! We were unable to catch it on camera (even though he did it three times in a row) yesterday, but we finally have video evidence today. Mom and Dad are super proud.

More 2 month picture to come when we return from Mimi and Papi's.

Ben and Friends

Yesterday, Ben had a play date with Gavin (3 weeks) and Sean (13 months) - or rather Karen, Maureen and I planned to get together for some Mommy bonding time.   Below are some of my favorite shots of the boys hanging out together.

And just one more of Ben giggling..."where did the other boys go?"

A few new favorites

First real try at the activity mat

A typical Ben face

My sweet little man

A few more pictures of Dylan

What a cutie...

We loved seeing you guys!  Thanks for coming to meet Ben.

Balding Benjamin

Even though we still think he's adorable, 

Ben's hairline had been amusing us lately.  The front is moving backwards,

and the back and sides seem to be rubbing off.

We are still wondering if it's going to all fall out as his eye lashes and eye brows are still blonde!

Brian, Aimee and Dylan are here!

The Shields family traveled from Orlando to meet little Ben and introduce him to Dylan (almost 14 months).  He seems a little interested and was very gentle with the baby.  It's been really fun to see what Ben will be like in a year (their birthdays are 4 days apart)...running around and into everything!  Dylan is adorable.

Currently, Brian, Aimee, Dylan and Nick are at the Villanova game...

Can you guess why I stayed home??

Our little sleeper...

Benjamin snuggles in his own little way:

Nick used to only get a crying baby in the evenings:
