"A bear in his natural habitat..."

"...a Studebaker!"

Here we have a document'ry about the human child. Heart pounding footage. Excellent semi-British narrator!

Here you have a photo I posted on facebook that everyone seems to like.

And here you have a photo of Benjamin where he looks so OLD! It's like you can see the older kid in him! Just waiting to emerge!

You might like to know that Benjamin detests all green vegetables I have given him (namely: green beans , peas, broccoli and "spring mix") whether they are fresh and put through my baby food mill or whether they come from a jar -- except one. He loves sauteed spinach. I just cook it up with some vegetable oil and garlic, then grind it for him. He can't get enough.

Also, my Everead review of Alvin Ho (good book!) was featured on the Cybils blog today. If you're looking for a good book, visit the previous two links.

Michael and I especially enjoyed the bit about the "symbiotic relationship with the adult." It describes our lives quite accurately! :)

I like that picture of your family, I can see Jacob's eyes better in that one. You don't have an option for my vote which is that I love the videos and want more writing, too (but I am not much of a cake person). In the vegi department, I am here to attest that I personally saw him down not 2, not 3, but 4 asparagus spears with gusto.

Wow- what a beautiful baby you have! He has such cute chubby cheeks and the most beautiful big smile! That is so funny that he loves spinach with garlic, I will have to try that with our little one. If he has to like a vegtable that sure is a nutritious one for him to like. I also loves the videoclip with him sucking on his toes. Don't ya just love that! Take care!
