The three of us went to Morris Arboretum yesterday for a picnic to take advantage of the beautiful weather. We were one week early for the train display so we will DEFINITELY be going back soon!
Ben has been doing these adorable hand movements when he talks. Hard to tell, but he's telling a story about a snake that he sees at the top of this "nest" - which I think was just a big branch.
Ben and Nick at the same water fountain last August. With a still picture, not too much has changed (Ben's taller and has more hair). However, if you had a video, the chatterbox is in full effect these days. I love listening to what he has to say!

I have gotten a few cute videos of Ben and my belly over the past few months, but I'm not sure if I"ve posted any of them. This one is from yesterday. We are in a little bit of an awkward position as I'm laying on the floor and taking the video myself...but it does capture Ben interacting with the "baby."

Obviously, if you've been following the blog, you know we've had been's furniture for a little over a week now. However, here are the pictures showing his new room! I know it's pretty empty still as we are obviously trying to keep it that way until we get the napping under control. He's so proud of the room.
A week or two ago, we tried 2 days of full on potty training. It didn't work too well in the end, but at the beginning, we were having so much fun I took some pictures. It's just taken me a while to download them, so I'm a little behind.
Here's Ben sitting on the potty (before any potty-ing actually happened)...
Showing off his underpants. He has a bunch of them now and I have to say, there are adorable. I'll be excited when he can actually wear them. :)

Day three resulted in no nap at all and a pretty unhappy Mommy. Therefore, no picture to share.
However, possibly due to exhaustion from not napping, night 4 resulted in Ben sleeping IN his bed, getting out ZERO times, within about 15 minutes. We won't celebrate until this becomes a norm, but thank you Ben!! Your parents are happy to have a relaxing evening. :)

Just thought he looked funny while entertaining himself with some of the toys at this little girl's birthday party on our street.
Can you believe they had pony rides right in front of our house? Ben didn't last too long on the pony. Not even for one step of the ride. He did much better just petting her. "Soft!" "Soft!"

Our township has a "festival" every year at the park up the street. This year, Ben took full advantage of the blow up games, animals, emergency vehicles, etc.
First time for both of us in an ambulance! Not sure how we missed a picture of him in front of his favorite truck, the FIRE TRUCK!
