Anyway, the play was awesome and Ben and I had a great time with all the family. Nick and Alex were really sweet with him. Mom and Courtney were excited to see him, too. It was good to see Adam and Karlie and their new house. Being there reminded me how huge Ben is. I'm pretty sure he could eat Dylan, who is a month older. Actually, he tried to a couple of times.
Unfortunately, I got back and realized I didn't take any pictures except on my phone. I guess I was too busy having fun. The only not fun part was the flying. Let me tell you, traveling by yourself with a baby should be a part of the World's Strongest Man competition. I must have been lugging 150 pounds of stuff around the airport and getting to the bus and such.
Ben just loves his daddy so much.
Ben's about as good at eating as I am. Maybe Paige can get me an awesome pilot bib. He does seem to enjoy cereal and he's even had some carrots and prunes.
As for new tricks, Ben rolls over from his back to his tummy now. He isn't super good at it, he has trouble getting his arm in a good position. He was on his tummy when Jon went to get him in the morning the other day, though, so he can do it on his own. He is sitting up really well, but I wouldn't quite say he's mastered that skill, yet. He still leans too far over sometimes and topples over. He also has a lot more interest in toys now that he's got better eye-hand coordination.
Here he is with one of his favorite toys.
And here he is ready for some basketball. Is anyone wondering if mommy wants the little guy to play sports some day? I can't help it, I think he looks so adorable in the sportswear. I like to think that if he doesn't want to play sports I'll be totally cool with that.
Also, we got a really sweet package from great gramma and granpa Workman the other day. It had some really adorable clothes and some chocolates.
Here Ben is modeling one of his new outfits. He's pretty stinking adorable.
