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!

Back to Blogging

I've resolved to start blogging again. Not only is it a good way for family and friends to keep up with what's going on in our lives, but it's therapeutic. It's a way of debriefing after the sometimes routine days of parenting. It's a way of reflecting on the many good things we have going in our lives that aren't always obvious in the lemons that get tossed our way. It reminds me to find find joy in the mundane. So back to blogging again....

Hmmmm what to say about the past 3 months since the last post?? Best described in a few updated pictures!

I feel like I can no longer call Ben many of the familiar pet names we have for him because the word "baby" no longer accurately describes him. We've traded out "Baby Benj, Boo Boo Baby, etc for Benny Bop, Benjo Monkey, Ben Ken" It's amazing how parenting both ages a person and also causes them to digress back into baby talk and ridiculous nicknames. Back to the point...he's not a baby. Without even realizing it, we've transitioned from baby to bona fide toddler status. Goodbye swaddling, bottles, play gyms and swings and sleepless nights (YESS). Hello decoding toddler speech, independence, potty training (more to come on that tomorrow....) and the occasional temper tantrum. Hello next stage of life
