Catching up on B-man’s Development

It’s been some time since either of us posted on our blog. I felt this video best summarizes Bennett’s development since we last wrote.

Please note, Bennett received his Elizabethan training at the vaunted Mary Castle Early Learning Center.

Greg and I told Bennett that he would be a big brother in July. Here’s a video we took of him reacting to the news. OK, we admit, it was mostly creative editing, but it’s still pretty funny.

It has been a blessed year. Happy Holidays from the Lawrences!!!

Three generations of Lawrence men

Over the weekend Greg, Bennett and I visited our family in Michigan. It was the first time Bennett was big enough to run around the land at his great-grandma and late great-grandpa’s house. Bennett is named for his great-grandpa Patrick (Bennett Patrick) who died when I was pregnant with him. Greg has really fond memories of visiting his grandparents and fishing with his grandpa. It was special to see him show Bennett the places he loved as a kid and it was a lot of fun to watch Bennett play with HIS Grandpa Lawrence.

As an aside, I LOVE this photo:

Our vacation to Key West

I’ve had an unintentional hiatus from the blog recently. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because we were on vacation and I hate composing long updates on my iPhone.
At any rate, I had a few interesting insights from our trip to Key West that made me believe we should all look at the world like a toddler. Here they are in no particular order.

1. Flying is a piece of cake, especially if you can do it half-naked and pacified by Elmo videos and as much food as you can handle (God bless Elmo). It doesn’t hurt if you have someone to sleep on either.

2. My kid doesn’t complain about anything. Maybe he just doesn’t know any better, but if you had strep and hand, foot and mouth and looked like this:

wouldn’t you complain?

3. Boredom is often due to a lack imagination.

This is Bennett with a pile of cloths and some diapers.

Here he is with an empty toilet paper role:

Here he is with some pots and pans on a rainy day:

I rest my case.

4. There is no greater blessing than to share someone’s firsts:

He’s just missing a piece of straw between his teeth and a banjo…

I love my sweet pantless baby boogie.
