My mom made a quilt for Anna and made this Winnie-the-Pooh blanket for Benjamin. Of course Anna thinks it is for her, and Ben was nice enough to share.

Morning time is Benjamin's favorite, most awake time. Just look at that big smile. His personality is really starting to show. He is a lot more smiley than I remember Anna being. She was pretty serious/concerned for quite awhile. Ben is always trying to tell me things in the morning. (I didn't really think this "photo shoot" through or I would have had a cuter background. He just had his diaper changed.)
This totally reminds me of Ethan when he wakes up in the morning. Seriously, sometimes Ben has to stretch for 10 minutes before he's actually ready to wake up. We just have really sleepy babies. I realized we didn't have as many pictures of Ben as we did of Anna at that age so I've been stepping it up a bit. Hence the videos. (We've been busy, but that's no excuse.) They change so quickly at this stage. I'll get a video of Anna up soon.
I love when babies first try to start communicating. You just know they're trying to tell you something important...you just can't quite tell what it is. Ethan and I find it very amusing putting words into Ben's mouth and speculating what he is trying to tell us. Benjamin is 6 weeks old today and I cannot believe how fast it has gone. He is changing and growing every day. It's sweet. Oh, sorry about my creepy whispery voice but a) Anna was still sleeping and b) Ben usually reacts to the high "baby voice" that I swore I'd never use. Enjoy!

Whenever I get overwhelmed with things, yes I tend to be a worrier, Ethan always puts things in perspective for me. I am so grateful for that. I feel so blessed in my life and look forward to many, many more years of growth and love in my sweet little family. I look forward to eternity with Ethan.

Here is Ethan with Melissa and Chuck. We went out with our parents for a yummy dinner the night before graduation. Melissa even arranged a babysitter for us so we could enjoy the dinner with just "grown-ups". How nice! Always fun to have a reason to celebrate.
We're still looking forward to a pretty low-key summer. We just have to take a few trips down state to arrange housing and look around. We need to sell our cute little house, and do a few other things to get all ready to move on to this new stage of our lives. How exciting!
