Family updates

Our almost-two-year-old is in for a rude awakening in 4 months when he's no longer an only child. We're trying to help him understand that he's going to be a big brother, but turns out that's a hard concept for a toddler brain to grasp. In the meantime, we're focusing on lots of quality time with Mom and Dad.

A few weeks ago, we went to a friend's wedding and did some dancing. We usually only have dance parties in the privacy of our own home, so Benton was excited to share his moves with the world for once.

When the weather isn't quite warm enough to enjoy playing outside, we have baseball practice in the living room. Benton thinks it's funny to use Dad as a tee.

Speaking of Dad, Brack's school did a Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser this month. The class that raised the most money won the privilege of shaving his head and beard. Before then, Brack hadn't shaved since October. It was getting pretty ridiculous. Benton and I are both pleased with the results. Check it out.



In Baby #2 news, we have decided not to find out if this one's a boy or a girl. Bring on the suspense. We did have an ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and we're happy to report that all limbs and necessary body parts are present and functioning. Benton is noticing my expanding mid-section and most days he rubs my stomach and says hi to the baby. I often ask him what that baby's name should be and he usually suggests Elmo or Nami (I have no idea where that last one came from).

Looking forward to a new blog post soon after our visit to the circus on Monday!
