Benjamin was not impressed with Santa this year. He was excited all the way to the mall, and even once we saw Santa and walked through the line, but he clammed up once he sat on Santa’s lap. Samuel, who met Santa the first time, was a champ.
Samuel’s first Halloween, Ben’s first time trick-or-treating, first holiday in a new neighborhood…it was a big day!
We spent Labor Day weekend in Santa Rosa Beach with Josh’s family. The last time Ben visited the beach he wasn’t even crawling, and Sam has never ventured more than a couple of miles from the apartment. We had a great time, and Mike even managed to help Ben get over his eremikophobia.
Video of our first few days with Samuel.
This summer we welcomed a new little boy into our family. He looks like his mommy and his brother, and when we’re not busy saving his life from Benajamin we’re taking as many pictures as we can. These are some of our favorites so far.
We’re welcoming a brand new baby boy into our family this summer, and we recently had the chance to get sneak peek at him. As far as we can tell he has his father’s nose, his mother’s skinny legs and his brother’s lack of shame (he’s definitely a boy, and he’s not bashful about it).
Celebrating our first year with Benjamin.
Benjamin had his first birthday in December, and to celebrate we asked our friend Cassie Robinson to take some photos of him. We met in the afternoon at City Square Park in downtown Roswell. Ben was just learning to walk, so getting him to sit still was more challenging than normal, but we were very happy with the results.
We had the opportunity to join Leah’s parents and a group from Mount Paran Church on a trip to Israel and Jordan. We had to leave Benjamin behind for twelve days, but it was the trip of a lifetime. We probably saw as much of Israel as anyone could possibly see in twelve days, and we found out Leah was pregnant with Samuel when we were in Jerusalem.
