Spring Has Sprung... Finally!

So we have finally have been able to go outside and enjoy the great outdoors! Benson and I are starting to get a healthy amount of sun. The past couple of days we have gone on 2 or 3 walks a day. We have visited Daddy at work on his breaks and visited Nana at work and even ate lunch with her yesterday.

Benson loves bubbles! The only thing he loves more is holding them and doing it himself... he hasn't successfully gotten them yet! He is a walking zombie though. I have taken him out onto the grass so he can get used to walking on the uneven ground. Bens has started venturing into standing up without holding on to anything. Sometimes he will end up looking at me upside down through his legs... what a cutie!

Bens loved "helping" Nana in her garden. He helped her mix the dirt around and put rocks in buckets. I don't know if she could have handled doing it without him!

Benson had his first bubble bath a couple weeks ago but he wasn't so sure about it! He stood there for the longest time crying before he realized this is fun. I am not sure I entirely convinced him yet!

Bens got sick as well a couple of weeks ago. We aren't positive what he had be it made for a miserable week while it was pouring outside! Nana let him sit in her bed in hopes he would be happy. You decide if it worked!! Since the last posting Benson has pushed through another molar so he is up to 12 teeth now. We are waiting for 13 and 14 to push through any day now.

Not much else has been happening here. Daniel and I are doing well. We are looking forward to vacations and enjoying the nice weather we have.

Bens' Birthday

I haven't been very good at sending people pictures recently seeing as our card reader is broken once again. Thankfully my brother took pictures from Bens' birthday party and sent them to me. Here are a few of my favorite shots!
He enjoyed eating the cake, getting messy but not so much the crash from the sugar high!

I was taking a look in Bens' mouth today and found that he has pushed yet another molar through today. The tooth count is up to 11 now. He got two of his molars on the bottom a couple of weeks ago and now has pushed one through on the top right. I think he is ready for almost anything now!

Here is my try at a blog... I have never really thought about doing it before so I thought I would give it a try!

Benson has been growing up so fast. Today he ate his lunch sitting on the chairs at my parents island. He looked like such a big boy reaching on the counter to get his bun and taking a bite. It is hard to believe that he is 13 1/2 months old already. He started to walk a few weeks ago. He looks like a little zombie toddling around with his hands up in the air! He was sick last week so he reverted back to crawling and is shaky walking around now.

Daniel and I are the proud new owners of a Grand Caravan. We got it on Saturday and are happy that we have room to move us between school and home now. Even better still is that we now have a driver's side mirror! It only took 1 1/2 years to finally get one after being side swiped out in Fernie!

So we are back in Magrath for the summer working and trying to save money for school. Daniel is going into Chiropractics in the fall out in Portland and we are looking forward to moving out there. We stopped out there on our way back to Canada (we took the long way home from Provo) and loved the city. We are trying to decide where we want to live but luckily we have a few good options!
