100th Post

For out 100th post, Ben received an outfit in the mail from his Great-Great-Uncle Jeffrey all the way from Australia!  

After some rolling around, Ben's exhibiting the plumber crack...

With my photography class tonight, this morning I was playing with lighting and taking pictures of my favorite subject.  Also, Maureen inspired me to try some in black and white.

The Men of Kray University

Ok, so this is probably an obnoxious amount of the same pictures, but they were all so cute.  Ben was in the absolute best mood this afternoon and evening.  I've never heard him laugh so much or so LOUD!  He has a new giggle...I'll have to try to catch it on video this week.


Bath Time

Since bath time usually occurs when Nick's at work, a Sunday bath allowed us to get some bath shots today.  Although happy throughout, Ben basically kept his hands in his mouth the whole time and was more interested in eating his fingers than his usual splashing and kicking.  Maybe next time we'll be able to catch the ceiling high water drips covering the mirror following bath time!

Summer-like weather in April

Our little family attended the Township Day festival yesterday in the surprising 90 degree weather.  We walked over to the event and checked out all of the activities discovering it will be a lot more fun when Ben's a little older.  We think he enjoyed himself anyway....

Following the event, we had a BBQ at the Wolfs' house.  Charlie (already jammied up) was a little confused as to why 10 month younger Ben was able to stay up later than he could.

Happy Friday!

Ben's getting more comfortable with the exersaucer thing and likes to push all the animal buttons.  I'm sure he'll be interested in all the other toys before long.

Ok, not our kid, but Charlie (14 months), is pretty cute.  He came over to visit today and went right for the bubbles.

I think this is possibly the first day wearing short sleeves at home (as opposed to FL)!  We are looking forward to the HOT weather tomorrow!  Today, Ben practiced his rolls (yes, the faucet of droll is typical).

Pretty proud of his roll with a little wave to the camera.

Sometimes, he just gives up and takes a break.

Love this pic!

"Doing some naked flying."

"I have shoes on!"

"Gosh, my Mom thinks I'm cute!"

"Practicing some sitting (using Mom's legs as support since I don't love the bumble seat)."

"Can you see I have some hair coming in on top?"

Doctor Update

No pictures here, but Ben had his 4 month doctor's appointment today.  He was 27 1/4 inches tall (100th percentile) and 17 lbs 5 oz (90th percentile).  Everything looks great and he took his shots like a he's a little fussy and getting extra attention from his Mommy.  Hope you're all having a great day!

Some fun comparisons

So here are some pictures of both Nick and me as babies (3 of each) along with some pictures of Ben making similar facial expressions.  The pictures of us are all from around 4 months old.  Does he look like either of us?  Have any of our features?  Let me know what you think!
