Ben smiles!

Grandma has been spending a few weeks here with us, off and on, and she was here when I captured Ben's first smile on film! He loves doing pat-a-cake and having his face tickled. He's also able to put his fist in his mouth - this was accidentally omitted from his resume ;)

Dani and Alex Wuv Each Other

I'm not sure if it's because I have less time to play with them, of if it's just their age, but the girls are playing TOGETHER all day, every day now. I've caught so many adorable shots of them TOGETHER. I love being TOGETHER with my crew!

Ben's Resume

A few weeks ago, a friend who's a photographer came down and took pics of all the kids (thanks Jill! It was sooooo fun!)and we have some proofs I can share. Aunt Jean took beautiful ones of Ben too, when he was just one week old, and I'll share those soon when I have prints to scan. Having a professional portrait got me thinking professionally, so I'm writing up Ben's resume of skills as well, in case you want to hire him to be YOUR baby (Don't even think about it; he's all MINE!).

Snug as a bug on a rug

Thanks to everyone for kind words and open ears after Plato's passing. I still feel like I'm missing something when I get everyone into the car or go upstairs at the end of the day, but I've been doing pretty well most days.

Things have been quite fun around here, now that the weather is warming up! I've taken so many pics and videos the last few days, but until I get time to download them, here are a few of the 3 kids having some floor time. The girls continue to be sweet to their brother in general, but we're going through some terrible twos and/or sibling rivalry issues that make Mommy a little frazzled at times... Dani especially is using tantrums to get a bit more of my attention, and Alex has been whiney and clingy if I'm not able to give her enough one-on-one. It doesn't help that Ben can be pretty fussy, therefore stealing a lot of my focus. I hope to get him on a schedule over the next few weeks so I can make sure the girls have my attention when they need it.

Here are the "wei three". Dani is on the left. Ben is in the middle. hee hee ;) He's getting so big! His 4 week weigh in was 12 pounds 11 ounces - he was 8 lbs at birth!
