Catching up… & Happy 4 Months!

Hello again!!! I’m back. I try to keep on this blogging thing, but it’s tough!!! Time to catch up…
Bennett turned 4 months this past Sunday. I can’t believe it’s been that long… I can’t believe how much he’s grown and accomplished, specifically in the past couple of weeks. Absolutely remarkable the changes we’ve seen in this little guy. He has improved drastically with his tummy time. It’s like night & day. And ever since he learned how to roll from his back to his tummy (he has yet to conquer tummy to back!), he is always rolling onto his tummy, and he thoroughly enjoys it!!! It’s so cute!!! He has even started to push and scoot a little bit with his thunder-thighs. Once he figures out how to get his arms going as well, he will be on the move!!!! Hopefully we can find a new house before that and we will fully Bennett-proof it. He has also started to grab for things… which is absolutely adorable. I truly believe his favorite thing to grab onto right now is my head/hair. He LOVES to grab my hair.. and this kid’s got quite the grip!!! He does not want to let go…ever. That’s fine with me, though. 😉
I got a new lens last Thursday, just in time for his 4 month pictures. I really like it, for the most part!! The only downside is that it doesn’t zoom in or out at all… what you see is what you get and if you want to get a bigger area, you need to really back it up. Sometimes there isn’t enough room to get the entire picture that I want, but other than that, I love it. It really gives the focused/blurry effect. ♥ it!
We are still on the hunt for a house. Frustrating stuff!!!! I just wanna move already! 
The weather here in Minnesota has been beautiful!!! Today it is a high of 74!!! And sunny, sunny, sunny! I wish I was rich and didn’t have to work. Wait a second, I wish that on rainy days too…nevermind. 😛
My little sister is finally coming back into town this weekend. Unfortunately, she will only be here from Friday night-late until Monday morning… but we will have to treasure the time that she is here because we don’t get to see her as much as we used to since she moved to Chicago. Once Bennett gets older, we will definitely have to go visit her there a lot!!! B misses his Auntie!!!
Working on getting a Baptismal date set… along with where and all that good stuff. I want to get it figured out so I can start ordering invites, etc. What do you put little boys in for this sort of thing??? I’ve heard of using dresses, but I don’t think we’ll go that route…. is there a typical outfit worn? 
Bennett has his 4 month appointment tomorrow. Daddy is going to take him because Mommy has to work and save her time off. I know he will be a courageous little guy and hopefully the shots won’t be too bad for him. I am skipping the gym tomorrow and going straight home to cuddle with him!!! I hate the idea of him being in any pain… I can’t get the vision of his poor little red face and his screaming cry last time he got shots. It’s for the best, baby… I promise!!! 
Anyway, I’ll try to update once we get the stats tomorrow in between cuddle time with M&D.
I’ll leave you with some of my fave pics with my new lens!!
Hope y’all have a great Tuesday.. at least it’s not Monday and we are one day closer to another weekend!!!

  1. GREAT pictures. He's such a cute little man!! I can't believe we're at the 4 month mark. It's really gone by fast! I'm looking forward to those stats! Our appointment isn't until next Friday.

  2. Adorable shots! I love all those tummy time smiles! It is so crazy how much they change in so little time. Good luck on your house hunt as well. We just did that last spring. We moved and had to wait for our house to sell, then had to find a house…although waiting the 4 months for the house to sell was tough…finding a house proved even tougher! My advice, find one with as many of your musts as you can…and don't settle on the big things you want! Your perfect house is out there you just have to find it! 😉

  3. Great pictures – what type of lens is that??I know that our Babies R Us & Penney's, etc. all carry little white baptismal suits that are really adorable – I'd check out that route!
