My Goodness!

at the Festival of the Arts the first weekend in June!
What happened to June?with Prima Tana, learning about digging in the dirt with Flat Sneaks!
Just after Benjamin gave Forest a dental exam - surprisingly, all went well :)
I can take things out of the laundry basket!
I try to go down the stairs with all of my toys, all by myself!
What happened to my sweet baby? He is SO big and starting to stumble walk!!!!

June slipped away very quickly with playgroups, Father's Day, Tana here for a week, and poor little Benjamin getting ill :(

Benjamin had back-to-back viral infections, followed by an ear infection. This all started the weekend before his Abuela, Abuelo and Tio Tony came into town - and continued right through Granny, GDad, Prima Zoe, Aunt Kerry, Uncle Jim, Titi Evelyn, Uncle Qefli, Primo Aidan, and Prima Nadia's visit... We ended up taking him to the ER on July 4th, the day of his celebration :(

Uncle Qefli helps Aidan cut his Happy Birthday Cake! Benjamin and his Happy Birthday cupcakes! Ttit Evelyn comforts a sick Benjamin...
All was well, though - the family pulled it all through and enjoyed themselves all together for the weekend! They played Wii, went through downtown Frederick, checked out some of the Smithsonians and memorials, played in the sprinkler, and with the sparklers :) Benjamin did enjoy having everyone around, and wishes so much that he had felt better so that he could've played and giggled too!

Benjamin has recovered very well from the illness, and is busy, busy, busy, growing, growing, growing and being a one-year-old!!! He likes to look at books, dance, throw balls, make music with instruments, be chased and startled, put doggie food in his mouth and then crawl away quickly while giggling, and push furniture about. He is a truly wild and wooly sweet baby bear!

I can hardly believe it has been a year since his birth - it all seems so surreal... what a blessing we have received in having Benjamin in our lives :)

We'll see what we can do about getting a sibling for our sweet baby bear. Our insurance plan changed this past year, and we are not sure what it will cover in regards to the two frozen embryos. Poor frozen puffins! We'll keep you posted ;)

We hope that all of you are doing well, and we hope to post more frequently (yeah, right!).
