Lots of Grandparents!

10 Months Old ALREADY!

As usual, we have had a busy couple of weeks. Two weekends ago we spent the night at my parents house. We had such a nice visit. Other than Ben is starting to have a real problem sleeping at a different place. And by "have trouble" I mean he screamed all night long. In general, he's still a good sleeper. He does wake up every couple nights or so, usually just once, and it gets worse depending on what kind of tooth he has coming. But this was just an all out scream of terror. Likely because he had no idea where he was. Luckily my parents get all the movie channels and I ended up just sitting in the living room watching Armageddon.

I'm attaching a video of my niece Lianna and her first duet with my Grandfather. As you may remember, my Grandpa is quite the piano player. He played for our first dance at our wedding. Now he's helping Lianna learn the art. It was so precious, I couldn't help but add it.

We got back Sunday. Work work work. Then Wednesday night the Bishops arrived. We jumped right in and had a great time. I don't think they are used to having a baby around! The old saying "Sleep when the baby sleeps!" They needed to practice that a bit throughout the weekend. When Ben napped, the Bishops napped. We needed the rest, though! We did quite a bit of shopping, including a trip to Ikea (way to hang in there Barry!), the mall.

Sunday we headed to the pumpkin patch. We weren't quite sure what to expect, but man was it fun! We picked one based on the fact that it had pig races. Brian really wanted to see the pig races. There was a huge crowd and they needed to pick a person from the crowd to represent each pig. Who was the third person picked? Well Grandma Karen, of course! Her pig's name was Oprah. Hence you can hear her scream "Go Oprah" throughout the video. Oprah came in second, but she was first in our hearts.

Ben did great. He seemed a little sleepy at first and I was worried we wouldn't make it. He rested in the stroller for the first bit then warmed up. Which was hard since it was our coldest day yet. He clapped at the pig races, climbed all over the pumpkins, and was mesmerized by all the displays. He was a trooper.

Other accomplishments? He now knows how to make the football touchdown gesture! It's so cute. He's getting really good at it. He now waves hello and goodbye. And we swear he's saying bye bye appropriately more and more. He's also working on tooth #7, walking like a champ up and down furniture. He also reaches out between pieces which sometimes ends up sort of messy. We're getting more and more bumps and bruises.

Enjoy these videos and pictures. We've had a lot of fun. I'm going to bed now!
