My first 4 weeks!

I am 4 weeks old today! This picture was taken earlier this week after Grandma Mathias bathed me. Aren't I so cute?

I am sad that both my Grandmas are gone. They held me, changed my diapers and even fed me! They were great! Thanks Grandma Morales and Grandma Mathias!

For now, I keep my mom very busy and don't let her sleep very much at night since I have tummy aches and have to drink all my milk.

I have been smiling more often even when I'm awake and can hold my head up without difficulty. I like to hold my weight up with my cute little legs when I'm on my mommy and daddy's lap. I can track objects with my eyes, I make very cute cooing sounds, and enjoy having conversations with both my parents-especially with my daddy. My daddy loves me very much! I'm a little sad when he leaves for work, but very happy when he comes home.

I had my baby blessing this past Sunday. I was dressed up in white. I looked really cute. I wish my mom's camera wouldn't have busted the day before-but lucky for me, Grandma Mathias had her camera and took pictures of us. I am sad to say that my mommy didn't end up taking pictures of the whole family or of Grandma Mathias because she forgot and also because her camera stopped working. Oh well. Here is a picture of us. I was hungry at the time, so I don't look very happy in this picture.

These are my second cousins Maggie and Ruby. Ruby is holding me- she smells nice. My Great uncle Dan is in the background and his wife Jodi is helping Ruby hold me. They all came to my baby blessing. They drove about 2 hours to come see me and see the whole family. Thanks!

Here I am again, cute as a button! This is one of my mommy's favorite outfits-it brings out the gray in my eyes.

I hope this has been a pretty good update for all of my mommy and daddy's friends! I'll keep you posted!

and... even more pictures!

Life has been so amazing these past few weeks! Ben is so precious!
He is full of surprises. Steve and I love him very much. Steve has been really good about getting up and changing his diaper in the middle of the night, and I have been feeding him almost around the clock every 2-3 hours. He is a very hungry boy, he's gonna be just like his daddy. Ben also has a tendency to pee on his daddy almost every time Steve changes his diaper! Ben keeps us very busy. We have been getting lots of help from my mom. She has been wonderful. She has cooked and cleaned for us! We are very lucky to have her- Thanks mom!

At his 2 week appointment Ben weighed 7 lbs-15oz, and was 21.5 inches long! He has grown a lot since he was born. He's starting to fit well in his 3 month baby clothes.

We love him very very much- and are so excited to watch him grow, and to teach him everything he needs to know about the Gospel and about the World!

Enjoying bath time

Sleeping happily in his bouncer

This is a video of Ben chillin' in his crib-haha

Isn't it great? We all were posing for this picture! We couldn't help it when we saw Ben's face while taking his nap- so we joined in!

More cute pictures of Ben

Dreaming about.... being happy

So happy in Grandma's arms

In contrast, getting his first bath. He didn't like getting bathed, but loves being clean...

Enjoying himself in his bath robe after his bath. All fresh and clean!

Yay for bath time!

Taking a nap after a long day!
