Weekend Update

Ben is 3 months old today!

The last few days have been quite eventful at Ben's house. Last Friday Ben's mommy had to return to work. Ben is attending a daycare/preschool close to his mommy's office. His first day of school was a lot harder for his mommy than it was for him. The teachers at the school all love him, and have even remarked that he is the most easygoing baby they have ever had!

All Ready for his First Day at Daycare!

On Monday Ben's mommy was allowed to take home Ben's very first art project! He painted a polar bear. He's done several other art projects as well. His Aunt Mary has declared him a child prodigy! He must be having lots of fun during the day because in the evenings he is exhausted.

As noted in yesterday's blog, Ben rolled over for the very first time yesterday. It didn't even phase him. All the tummy time is really paying off for him! His doggie Pearl also tried to bond with him! While Ben was asleep in his swing Pearl was playing with his mommy. All of a sudden Pearl picked up her favorite ball and dropped in Ben's swing with him. Once she realized Ben wasn't going to play with her, she promptly picked it up and took it back. (Minnie was too busy stalking the cat to bother with Pearl or Ben.)

Tonight brought new and exciting things as well. It's just past 9 p.m. and Ben is fast his crib. He's been sleeping in a pack n' play in his parents' room and going to bed later, but with mommy's 6 a.m. wake-up every morning, he needed an earlier bedtime. (Mommy gets to the office at 7:30 a.m. so she can leave early and spend more quality time with Ben!) Mommy decided for now he would go to bed around 8 p.m., but move into her bedroom each evening when she goes to bed. (She has separation anxiety and is secretly afraid she will become the Blackhawk version of a helicopter mom!)


  1. You all have worn that child out! Love the picture of Pearl.

  2. We obviously wore Pearl out as well.
