Ben's grandpa gave him his first haircut. His hair was growing into his eyes.

Man, I'm tired. Ben is 17 1/2 lbs. It takes a lot of milk to satisfy that child. Milks well into the night. I don't mind. I'm just tired. He sleeps a lot better than he used to. My only problem now is that he won't sleep without me, but we're working on it.

Chris and I have started house hunting. Due to the unfortunate state of the economy, we may actually be able to afford a house payment. There are a lot of options in the valley that might actually be able to work out for us. I'm pretty excited at the possibility of owning a house. I'm so tired of living in our tiny little trailer. Our family has gotten too big. And by family, I'm also including dogs, tortoises, and all of our stuff. So having more space for all of us affordably would be pretty cool.

I have so much to write, but no time. Having a kid takes up a lot of your energy. It's pretty much the best job I could ever ask for.


  1. That is such a cute pic!!!!

  2. hey ben is so cute. to bad you ditched me to house hunt so i couldn't see him. :( boo. j/k :)

  3. Hi Bekah - it took me a minute to remember who Chris was . . I still tend to think of him by his last name. Weird mission idiosyncrasy. I'm glad you like my blog, even though I'm a little weird sometimes. Hey, weird makes the world go round.

    The bebe is adorable - I'm happy for you guys! It's cool to catch up with Chris and especially to see he found such a great gal with awesome tastes to marry. :) I have to go read through your blog now . . . catch ya later!

  4. That kid is handsome. It's not just you! Good luck on the house! Hopefully you'll get some energy once winter is finally over.
