On the records...

Henry was blessed this past Sunday, so he's officially on the records of the church.  Don't worry, my mom is the one who took pictures that day, so when I get copies of those, I'll post them.  It was a beautiful blessing (from the little tid-bits I was able to hear... Grant decided NOT to be quiet during the blessing), and we had both my parents (Chicago) and Ben's parents (LA) here for it.  This was the first time that Ben's parents were visiting Bloomington, so we did a few things around town before they left.

Other than that, our household has been pretty boring as of late... Ben goes to school and I stay home with the kids.  I may try some new things this semester.  There is a Rock Climbing group starting at church for some of the women, so I'm kinda stoked about that!  Anyone want to babysit for me?  I also want to start going to the Book Club.  However, I feel stupid... I've never been to one, and I'm kind-a scared to share my opinions about a book with someone other than Ben (he's so nice to me).  AND I want to take a class of somesort- maybe an aerobics class? I need to see what's available in town.

Henry checked in at 11 lbs 13 oz & 23" long at his 2 month check up- though he HUGE to us, he is actually in the 25-50 percentile for his age.  Crazy.  I'm so used to our tiny Grant.  haha.

Here are some photos from this past week or so. Enjoy :)

Ben would probably kill me if he knew I were posting this... it's only a matter of time :/

Both kids.  I think Backyardigans or Little Einsteins was on TV... oops.


Louise with some random statue (I can't remember who it is).


Henry in his new bouncer.  I think? he likes it!

"A BATH today?" Yes, Grant, you get to take a "BATH TODAY!"  haha I tried to be descrete about things...

Closer look at the dirty/cute kid (just stinky!)
