A really long time

Wow! It's been almost 3 weeks since my last post. Ha, I feel a little bit like I'm in confession at church. It's been a lot longer than 3 weeks since my last confession, but this isn't the time or place to get into that.

So much has happened in the past 3 weeks. Ben has grown and changed so much it boggles the mind. To look back at pictures from when he was 2 months old and 2 days old it's incredible to see how much he's grown. He went from this tiny blob of a boy whose head and chest fit in my hand to a 17 pound 27 inch little boy who squeals in delight and rolls over.

I was upset that I haven't written in a while. I've been using the blog as a tool to remember things about Allison's pregnancy and Ben's growth. 3 weeks have gone by without a post. I know there are things that have happened that I'm just not going to remember. Sure it was great when it happened, but I know there are events that knocked that event right out of my head.

Well I needed to get back to square one. Just sit and write. I'll write more over the next few days to get caught up and hopefully keep up to date on my posts. Benjamin is completely bottle fed and is on rice cereal. Allison went to bed early tonight and I gave Ben his midnight snack. If you've never given a baby a bottle at midnight, you really should. It's so cute to watch him doze off as he's drinking it. It's a race. Will he fall asleep first or finish the bottle first?

Tonight the bottle outlasted the baby. He fell asleep with 1 ounce left. It was so cute. His lips were still puckered as if he was still drinking and he just flopped down like a stuffed animal. I wish I could have taken a picture of it, but it's just not worth the risk of waking him back up or blinding him with the flash.

That's all for now. Have a good night. Here is a recent pic to enjoy taken by

Stay tuned for more pictures by Victoria. She may have her secrets, but her gift of photography is not one of them. She's letting the world know, she has a camera and skillz.

I literally laughed out loud at your Victoria's Secret joke. Ben is growing up too quickly! I wonder how much he's changed since I took those photos a few weeks ago.

Nice! I showed the pictures to a coworker about an hour ago and Ben's hair has grown in a lot since then.

I was wondering where you've been. Sometimes life gets in the way though, huh? I totally sympathize. Hope you guys are doing good. =)
