I think between the 3 pictures you can see all 8 kids :) This was taken at Grandma Linda's 50th birthday party. The kids had more fun playing with the boxes, bows and paper than their toys.

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.

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.
