Last week was the beginning of the tooth adventure for Benjamin. We noticed there was a tooth close to the surface on Sunday night the 9th. The next morning it was through. A couple of days later, the one right next to it started coming close to breaking through. This morning it was official. Benjamin got his two teeth in time for Christmas. We have been so blessed by his cheerfulness through the process. He really has not fussed much at all.
Other than getting teeth, Benjamin has been practicing sitting up. This morning he sat alone for seven or eight minutes. He is really starting to like the fact that he can look around better while sitting up. He's loving his toys more and more and he's doing a very good job at getting to them by scooching.
Next week we will celebrate our first Christmas as a family of three. God has blessed us so much with Benjamin and we look forward to seeing family and sharing his first Christmas with them.

So one of my favorite things to do is dress Benjamin up in cute things. I know, he is a boy, but there really are so many cute boys' things for him to wear and we have been so blessed with people giving or loaning us cute clothes. So here he is modeling an adorable hat.
This weekend we celebrated the end of Matt's second to last semester at school! We are so excited to have a whole month together before he starts his last semester. No homework taking up our whole weekends! Woohoo!
We decided to make it a fun weekend and stayed in a hotel here in town just to get away a relax. Benjamin did really well sleeping in his pack-n-play and we are hoping that he will do as well over Christmas when he will be sleeping in it every night. While we were at the hotel, we decided to introduce him to the pool. He has loved his baths from the very first time he had one, so I have always thought he would be our little fish. He proved us to be right and enjoyed the water. It was a little cold, so we didn't keep him in long, but it was fun.
