Saturday/Pics of Benjamin

It's been a rainy, lazy Saturday around here. The sky's been darkish most of the day, but we've not gotten alot of the much needed rain. We're hoping that the sky opens up and drenches us, but so far, it's not happened.

Our good friends are taking us out to dinner at Carraba's tonight. I can't wait! I haven't eaten at Carrabba's in a long time and am looking forward to some good Italian food along with with some great fellowship.

Home from Camp

Paul, Ellie and Sam arrived home from beginner camp this afternoon. They all had a good time, but I think Sam enjoyed it the most. He thought he was a "big kid" the whole time he was there and was none to happy to arrive home and be a 3 year old again, and have to take naps! He was rather put out with me when I informed him it was naptime! He fell right asleep, and Ellie almost fell asleep in church tonight. Camp does tire a kid out.
I gave him a bath before church and wasn't paying attention to how much water was in the tub. I turned around and I saw just his face sticking out of the suds. It was so funny!

Benjamin at 4 Months

Benjamin is four months old today. I tried to take some pictures of him this evening, but they didn't turn out so well. It's hard to take the picture, make sure the baby is not falling over and try to make the baby laugh when you're by yourself! You can see how he's grown, however. He is a very smily, very good natured baby! He still spits up, alot, but it doesn't seem that his stomach bothers him anymore. Both of his eyes have cleared up this month- it is nice not to have to clean his eyes every few minutes. He was getting a little tired of that!
He is wearing an outfit that was given to Paul, Jr., when he was born, over 18 years ago. All four of my boys have worn it.

Benjamin weighs 15 lbs., 8 oz. at 4 months. At the same age:

Paul weighed 13 lbs., 11oz.,

Zack weighed 17 lbs., 10 oz.,

Anna weighed 15 lbs., 8 oz.,

Ellie weighed 15 lbs., 5 oz.,

Sam weighed 15 lbs., 5 oz.

Other than Paul and Zack, the last four have been about the same. It's funny to me that Paul and Zack were such extremes!

Anna's knee is healing very well. I took her back to the doctor on Tuesday (the day after she hurt it) and the doctor was very impressed with how it had healed. It is still somewhat sore and stiff, but nothing like it was. She goes back on Tuesday to get the stitches out. Here is a picture of what it looks like and it is pretty ugly!

Blueberry Picking

Today, Anna, Sam, Ben and I went blueberry picking with a bunch of friends of ours. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the picking, the lunch and the time afterward at one of our friends houses. Sam got to swim in the pond and had so much fun. He was sooooo tired tonight, and said to me, "Mommy, let's put me to bed."
