Happy Birthday!

Today is a big day!  Daddy turns 29 and Benny turns 1/2!  Last night we had a family celebration.  Grammie, Grampie, Nana, and Papa came over for dinner.  Also, Katie and Eric came in town too!  It was quite a grand celebration.

The best part of the party was the balloon!  Let me get it!

Make a wish...

Daddy blew out all the candles!  Hooray!

If you have any doubt about how fun the balloon was exactly, check out this video...

So, what is Benny up to at age 1/2?

1.  Giggling.  Everything is very delightful and fun when you are only 1/2. (See video above.)
2. Rolling.  He is getting better and better at it.  He is not always in the same place I left him anymore.  He can't sit up by himself yet, but he's getting a bit better at that too.
3. Playing.  He loves all of his toys and for you to interact with him.
4. Eating!  Oatmeal cereal is better than rice cereal.  Sweet potatoes are better than carrots.  Ice cream is the best of all.  He likes these things called Baby Mum Mums.  They are baby rice cakes.  Kind of taste like a communion wafer.  We got out his high chair so he could eat dinner with us last night.

What is Daddy up to at age 29?

1. Still dreaming about all the great cars and tools he needs. {He got a leaf blower for his birthday.  One of the things on the list of tools that he 'had' to have.}
2. Working too much.  (Last week he worked 85 hours!)
3. Lovin' Benny and me.
