Long Time, No See

Wow! I let this posting get away from me. My how life can change when we have one that doesn't nap any longer. We get even less done...but we get to play more! While Bennett has been napping, Mac has been doing his dot to dots, mazes, learning to write his letters, becoming an I SPY pro and learning to work the computer. It's so much fun to watch his brain working. He turned three in March and is LOVING being able to play outdoors more.

Bennett has turned into a little boy in the past few months. We definitely don't have a baby in the house anymore. Bennett is always drawn toward old Grampa looking men and to babies. however, he's also grown especially fond of his "pet bird" we've affectionately named Kevin. It is a Robin who flies into our window about 75+ times a day. Kevin just laid eggs. Bennett says good morning to him everyday and calls out "Bye Kevin. Be back." when we're pulling out of the driveway. He is putting sentences together and his favorite is, "Where'd (anything) go? Oh, dare it is! Found it!" And the swing is a favorite pasttime...he could spend hours in there for sure.

And just in case you were wondering, this photo is a representation of how Bennett lets us know when he is done eating.

And then there's this dangerous trio! Cousin Parker is a ood bud of ours, along with all the other cousins.

We've so enjoyed our time with cousins, aunts and uncles, grammas, grampas, and visits from those aunts, uncles and Grammy/GrampS who live too far away. We love you all! Thank you for our many blessings!
