    Where in the world is Mike?

    Thursday, August 25, 2005

    Actually, he's somewhere in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan backpacking with his brother, Joe. Benjamin and I already miss him immensely! I just had to post my horoscope for the day because I thought it was far too appropriate for my first whole day and night alone with my Little Man!!

    Even if someone's demands are unreasonable or they're being otherwise moody or fussy, face up to them bravely. Use your natural quickness and clever intellect to engage them in a discussion instead of dismissing their concerns. You're more than capable of giving generously of your time and patience, so make sure you exercise those qualities right now, no matter how trying this person is to your fortitude.


    Sorry for the downtime!

    The blog was down for a couple days, I apologize for that. It seems that someone decided to leave a "spam" comment on our blog which crashed the whole thing. So to avoid this kind of trouble in the future, I have had to restrict comments to only members of this blog. Don't ask me how you become a member, but in order to leave a comment, you have to be one. Sorry for any inconvenience!

    I have uploaded some pictures of our visit with Benjamin's cousin AJ and also Grandma and Grandpa Andrews, who were babysitters this weekend. We attended Mike's 10-year high school reunion on Saturday, which was very interesting. I think Mike is still reeling from the surreality of it. Haha.

    So BIG!

    Friday, August 12, 2005

    Hi everybody! Sorry for the lack of posts, but we've been quite busy lately. Benjamin will be 7 weeks old this Monday and he has grown so much! I weighed and measured him on Monday and he is now over 11 lbs and 25 inches long. Mike was very excited to share his first Packers game with Benjamin (even though it was just preseason). For all of you Bears fans out there, you'll be happy to know that Ben cried quite hard when I put him in his Packers onesie...haha. We captured the game-watching on film, so I will upload those pictures sometime this weekend.

    For the time being though, here is a shot of the little guy getting some tv watching in:

    The Schmitt Family Reunion

    Tuesday, August 02, 2005

    This weekend we took our first long car trip up to Menasha, Wisconsin to stay with Mike's godparents, Aunt Loretta and Uncle Harold. Benjamin slept the whole way in the car and was a very good boy all weekend! On Sunday we went to the Schmitt Family Reunion, which is held every 3-4 years. This year it was outside in a picnic shelter. We all ate like pigs and just enjoyed seeing family and spending time with each other. Benjamin won the award for the youngest baby in the family (at 5 weeks) and Mike and I won the award for most newly married (at over 3 years!!). I have posted pictures from the weekend on webshots and you can also visit Joe and Jen's webshots account to see even more:
