Well Hello There

So yeah.  Ben turns one and I suddenly disappear and forget all about trying to keep track of what's going on in our little family.  Silly me.  My memory sucks.  I really do have to chronicle stuff somewhere.

So, in the past 4 or 5 months a lot has happened.  Ben kinda started walking.  Kinda meaning he took his first real steps when 16 months old, but even though he totally can walk, chooses not to.  He is a fast crawler and sees no reason to walk.  But he can walk.  In fact he can run if there is something he really wants.  Lazy baby.
Uncooperative 13 month old

14 months old

15 months old

Shy 16 month old Batman

17 months old and wearing the overalls Morgan wore when he was a 1 yr old.

Sam turned 3!  Stinkin snow storm almost cancelled his Curious George themed party.  Only two of his little friends managed to make it to the party.  Most of the family didn't make it either.  But he had a blast and ate way too many cupcakes, so it's all good.  Right now he is OBSESSED with the movie Cars and won't let his little Lightning McQueen car out of his sight.  He even sleeps with it.  Every time going up for nap or bedtime he has to grab his binky, 2 bunnies, and McQueen.  If he forgets one of these items he ends up sitting on his bed crying till you fetch them for him. 

Evil Mommy kept telling him to catch the balloons as I inflated them.

Babies, babies, babies!  It feels like half the people I know are having babies this year and it's a wonderful thing.  It helps to control the baby want.

And, skin cancer.  I had a bothersome mole removed and it turned out to be a basal cell carcinoma.  Surgery followed, stitches came out a few days ago, and now I just have to wait for the healing process to make the scar less angry looking.  Oh yeah, stupid cancer was on my FACE.  So I now have a scar on my upper lip that goes around the side of my left nostril.  But, even though I will have this scar for the rest of my life, I really can't complain about it.  I had cancer and it was the easiest kind of cancer to get rid of.  I mean, if you have to get cancer, this is the kind you want.  Stupid fucking cancer.

Oh, and somewhere in there Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Morgan & my birthday, and Valentine's Day all happened!  Yikes.  But we are all good, healthy, growing, happy, and enjoying the nice weather that Spring has brought after a long, long winter!

And I'm going to Vegas with my bestie in May!!!
