3 weeks old

This is just the saddest little picture mommy has. He was 3 weeks old and had to be on breathing treatments every 3 hours. They say that babies that young can't get sick if you nurse them. Well, they are wrong. He was on breathing treatments for 2 weeks.

A Better Day...

Today we had a better day. We didn't cry when mommy left. Tonight we are spending the night with Granny. We had sloppy joe's for dinner. Benjamin loves katchup. So, mommy told him it was a meat and katchup sandwich. He wolfed it down. We wouldn't let him have anything else for a while, because we were afraid he would throw up since he and eaten so fast. Tomorrow will be a good day.

Well, the weekend is over. The boy had a rough day. He really missed mommy and cried for her several times. Poor baby. I think he really enjoyed spending the weekend with mommy and didn't want mommy to go back to work. He's such an angel boy. He just got to sleep. Now mommy is going to be.

Feeding Ducks

We went on Sunday and fed the ducks. Granny went with us, but after a few minutes she had to go back to the car where it was cool. He loves going to feed the ducks. He just loves animals that have no interest in bodily contact.

Another Beautiful Song

He learns such beautiful things at Sunday School.

Austin got to come over last night for a couple of hours. Little Benjamin loves for him to come over. We stopped by tonight to see if he could come play, but he was at his mom's.

I swear, he doesn't eat at home. They have started making him eat whatever they have for dinner and if he doesn't eat it all then he can't have anything else till the next meal. Austin only likes chicken nuggets for meat. S0, Billy, who would only eat STEAK if he could afford it, doesn't exactly make a lot of things that Austin is overly interested in eating. Thus, coming to Benjamin's house is an art in getting to eat whatever he wants. There are endless cups of milk, the soy kind Benjamin drinks and Austin likes, dinners of mac n cheese, ramen noodles, snacks of crackers and cereal. Now don't get me wrong. He has to try everything I make, but if he tries it and doesn't like it, he can eat something else. We have fruit and veggies at our meals. But we can have a snack later if we don't eat all of our green beans. I bet Austin thinks of Benjamin's house as a buffet...

Before anyone gets all bent out of shape, I have to do this because this is how Benjamin eats and it isn't fair for Austin to have to clean his plate when Benjamin doesn't. I can't make Benjamin eat all his food because of his stomach problems. Well, actually I can make him eat it, but then he throws up EVERYTHING he ate for the whole day. Pushing Benjamin to eat is counter productive. Thus Austin gets the same treatment at Benjamin's house. We can't wait for him to come over and visit again.

Sleeping Angel

This is my sleeping angel. Isn't he perfect! I think his lips look like Little Clayton's. I hate this new blog listing that everyone has. Now to get to the top of Mom's or anyone else's listing I will have to post every day. It was much easier when I set up mom's and Little Benjamin's page was at the top of the list.

4th of July at Granny's

He's a water boy. Soon he will be a little fish. We are spending the day at Granny's and then we are going to spend the night here too. Papa said he would grill steaks for us and by that time it will be late afternoon and the drunks will be on the road, so we will have to spend the night here. Granny's happy to have the company and the boy gets to go swimming after his nap.
