And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

Starting this morning with a video :) I think he'll be musical...or at least like music!

Comment from my Mom....and a photo she sent to me after my post the other day

"It's true that you were almost inseparable from your lovey, Blankey. In fact, you were one of those little ones who would stand next to the washing machine then the dryer waiting for your friend. You would plead so miserably, that I'd finally let you have Blankey while still damp. Since you sucked on Blankey incessantly, he required lots of washing which led to his becoming grey and yes, almost disintegrating. However, Blankey was not thrown out, but retired with dignity, knowing he was much loved despite his appearance. I brought Blankey out of retirement and emailed you a picture to prove he is still with us. Love, Mom "

A few updates from our neck of the woods....

- Tonight we leave for New York to see Grandma and Grandpa Roelofs! We're taking off around dinner time, planning to stop and put Ben down to sleep, and we're hoping he'll sleep the rest of the ride. Looking forward to a much needed time of rest and relaxation with family!

- We've got a scooter.....Ben has discovered how to scoot around backwards. No forward movement yet but he can scoot himself backwards around the room. Goodbye immobility....hello mobility.

- Hours after my last post (sorry for the depressing nature of that post by the way), Brian called saying he had been in a car accident. Praise God he wasn't hurt- nobody was hurt....except the car :( Things like that remind me of how fragile life is...can't take it for granted.

Have a great weekend everyone!
