John usually spends most of his day in 2 places: the jump-a-roo, or the swing. He keeps entertained and happy...and it's a good place to catch a catnap.
Benjamin put Benji in the highchair to tease him. But Benji didn't seem to mind. He asked for a banana and ate away :)
The last 2 pictures are the kids pretending to be Benjamin & me. The 1st one they are playing mtg (note Benji is wearing Benjamin's boots & coat). The last one, (yes, Benji & Carolyn have their arms around each other) they still are playing "Benjamin & Heather" only today Katie was their 'brother', and she was holding "John". I'm quite amazed at their creativity. They come up with quite the things at times.
I finally found my camera, (actually Benjamin did) so here are some pictures to catch you up-to-date. Carolyn turned 3 the end of January. I misplaced my camera the morning of her party, so I only have a picture of her "party cake" and the cake we had with just our little family.
We (me & kids and Heather & kids) went to Beecham's for the day. We had a little Valentines party for the kids. Eight kids and 3 mom's! It was tons of fun, as it always is when all the kids get together.
Today John is 5 mos. old. He hasn't been to the dr lately, but when I weigh him with me on the scale he weighs about 17 lbs. Not sure how accurate it is, but when you look at him & pick him up, its quite possible. He continues to be a happy & content baby. During the day he likes to sit in his "jump-a-roo" and watch the kids play. At night he usually sleeps until 4:30-5:00, then goes back to sleep for a tad longer. Can't complain! I tried baby cereal, but he wasn't interested. Obviously he isn't lacking for food, so I figured he can wait a bit longer. No tooth has come thru yet, but he chews & drools all day. He looks alot like Benji's baby pictures, but resembles Carolyn as she was a chubby baby too, and had the same hair color as John.
It has been some time since we've posted new pictures. We do actually have quite a bit to post, BUT... at Carolyn's birthday party last Sunday, I misplaced my camera. So until I can relocate it... you'll have to wait.
