Benson rolled over for the first time tonight. Tomorrow he will be 2 months old, so, so far he has rolled over before the girls. So he is smiling, laughing and rolling over for us.
I looked over at Ben on Friday night and he had fallen asleep playing. Matt and Ally sleep just like this. Cosette did too. Normally Ally does too, but she decided to sleep sideways in her bed that night. (Sorry I couldn't get the picture to load properly)
Ally was trying on the dress that Great Grandma Horn got her.
We updated our family picture this morning. Out of the 2 kids, we would have thought that Ben would be an issue with making sure he was happy and looking at the camera. Well, Ben did great. Ally on the other hand was a big stinker. She was excited about getting her picture taken, but when it came time to look at the camera and smile, she wanted nothing to do with it. She was looking everywhere, but the camera. When she would smile, it was goofy and she'd be looking at the floor. Grrrr! 3 year olds! Oh, and to represent Cosette, we brought along her pink blanket and her pink cat. We are going to use those items when we do family pictures as a stand in for our angel. She was definetely missed today.
She was doing something funny with her tongue. This one turned out great.
When we were in the Smokies, playing in a creek, Ally and I were picking up rocks and looking at them. I found this one and showed it to Ally. She said it was her "I love you mommy rock". I thought it was so cute. I had to bring the rock home, for the memory. She's such a sweet girl.
This morning she has been very concerned with where Ben is. She'd walk around the house and I'd finally ask her what she was doing and she'd respond with "looking for Benson". He is asleep in his bed. She'd run in there to check to make sure he was really there. Then she'd go back to playing, until she noticed again, that he wasn't in the same room as her. Then she'd go looking for him again. She is so sweet with him and loves him so much. She can't wait for him to be able to play with her. The way he's growing, it should only be a few more months and he'll be into all of her stuff!
