    A month = a lifetime

    Wednesday, July 27, 2005

    Benjamin is one month old. Gosh, before you know it, he will be chasing girls around!! Haha.

    This weekend Grandma and Grandpa Andrews came up for a visit. We went to the SPAM museum in Austin, which was surprisingly very cool. Benjamin enjoyed it so much that he slept the whole time! We had a great weekend. Last night we met Grandma and Grandpa Schmitt in Cannon Falls for dinner, which was great! We will definitely be doing that more, I think! I added a couple of pictures to our webshots account today and here is a link to my parents photos from this weekend:

    This weekend we are off to Wisconsin for the Schmitt Family Reunion......

    Mommy and Benjamin played around with the camera for a bit today, trying to capture one of his new tricks (a smile). I also added a few more pictures to the webshots account, so check them out! It is hard to believe that Benjamin is now 22 days old...yikes!

    Growing TOO quickly!

    Wednesday, July 13, 2005

    Benjamin is now 16 days old. It doesn't sound like it is very old, but when you consider what has happened in our lives since Monday, June 27th, it feels like a lifetime already! I think he grows more and more everyday. Mike is officially back at work this week and he misses us a lot. I try to promise that I won't let Benjamin change at all while he is away, but it is hard to keep a baby from growing and learning! We have kept ourselves busy while Dad is at work so far with lots of TV watching, many bottles, and even a visit from Grandma, Auntie Jen, and Cousin AJ! I took some pictures of AJ and Benjamin together, hopefully we will get those loaded onto webshots soon. AJ is now 14 weeks old and practically looks like a toddler next to dainty little Benjamin! I cannot WAIT until they are able to play together, I hope they are best buddies!!

    Last weekend Grandma and Grandpa Andrews and Aunt Mary and Erin visited us, we had a great time! Mike has already loaded photos onto Webshots from the weekend.

    We are making our first trek up to the Twin Cities this weekend, hopefully Benjamin behaves himself! He's such a good baby, I'm sure he will be fine! Thank you again to everyone for the phone calls, emails, and cards!!

    First family outing

    Tuesday, July 05, 2005

    Benjamin and family had our first family outing...we attended the Rochester fireworks celebration. Granted we sat in the car at the local high school and watched them from afar, but Benjamin was well behaved and seems to really like his car seat ;-) Where are we off to next? Hmmm, I wonder if he likes the Geardaddies?

    Almost one week old!

    Sunday, July 03, 2005

    Here we are, nearly one week after Benjamin was born and we are having the best time ever! Sure, the lack of sleep isn't the most fun (it is now 4am), but we are enjoying our new son so much! Everytime we look at him, we are amazed at how much we love him.

    Mike just added a few new pictures of the little guy on our webshots account, check them out! Thank you to everyone who has sent us such nice emails and blog entries!!
