1st Good Look at Baby #2

Today I had my 12 week ultrasound to determine if the baby has any birth defects. We are all in the clear on that account. We received a cd of the visit which thrilled me because now I don't have to take the time to scan in the pictures to the computer! The baby was so active that the technician had a difficult time measuring the baby. At one point he had to turn the examining table at such an angle that I felt like I was going to fall off or slide right out of my pants. Neither of which happened thankfully.

When Tim asked what the thing coming out of the baby's nose was, the technician said, "That's a booger." It's actually a hand curled up and pressing against it's nose.

Kris and Nick's Wedding

This past weekend we drove down to Eugene to attend Tim's aunt's wedding. Even though Beniah didn't get a nap that day, we had a great time. I realized that I didn't take any photos of the wedding party, only of Beniah.

Beniah and Donny kept trying to blow out the candles before the wedding. I believe that they actually got one out. (I have to admit that this amazing photo was done by my sister in law, Joann)

During the reception, Beniah was entertained by taking pictures with the disposable camera that was on the table. Unfortunately, Kris and Nick will have around 4 pictures of Beniah's vest.

Waiting for our food to arrive.

On the way home, Beniah started getting really excited when we were passing under some bridges because Tim called them tunnels. Beniah kept saying, "More tunna! More tunna!"

1st Professional Haircut

I was putting off cutting Beniah's hair for as long as possible because he is going to be a ring bearer in my sister in law's wedding this August and I want it to still look good. However, this last Friday, I was noticing how mulletish Beniah's hair was getting. It would have passed as a good look 20 years ago, but definitely not now. Tim and I took him to Great Clips and a wonderful lady named Jessica took us back to start the process.

Beniah got decked out in a fun cape and then picked out a sucker (also known as a distraction). The sucker proved to be a very valuable asset to the hair cutting experience.


Once Beniah realized that his locks were going to be cut off, he burst into tears. Well, maybe it was because the scissors scared him. He was really cute while he was wailing, but we didn't take any pictures of it because it took both of us to console him and remind him of his sucker.

The cutting process.

Finished (with extra cheese)!

A Spontaneous Trip to the Bonneville Dam

A couple of weekends ago, Tim and I decided to go on a spontaneous trip to the Bonneville Dam (well, as spontaneous as you can get with a 1 & 1/2 year old). Beniah had a wonderful time and looking at all of the painted fish on the sidewalk. He just had to touch all of the fish even if that meant trying to run in the middle of a group of people to touch it.

Beniah was a little disturbed by the size of the sturgeon in the pond.

Beniah and Tim growling at the stuffed bear. I would love to see the reactions of the people seeing the security footage of a grown man growling at a display case.

Of course, Beniah had to count the metal fish before we left for home. "On. Two. Fee. Nine."

Mama's Little Helper

For the past couple of weeks, I have been letting Beniah help me with some of my baking. He really enjoys the process of dumping ingredients into the bowl and helping Mama stir by singing,
"Round and around and around we go!
Round and around and around we go!
Round and around and around we go!
Round we go-o-o!"
I remember my mom singing this to my sister and I when we helped her stir food.

Beniah's all time favorite part of cooking was licking the peanut butter off of the spoon.

Our masterpiece, Chocolate Peanut butter bundt cake.

Beniah had fun putting the cheese strips onto the pepper jack macaroni and cheese.

Beniah also got to help his Daddy make wonderful chocolate peanut butter brownies.
