But Easter came and went and no bunny arrived in the mail. :(
Then yesterday....we spotted a large box on the porch!!
The bunny finally found its way to our house!! He had quite the adventure through the postal system! He came in a big box....but the box really gave no clue as to how big he was...he had been squished in!
So here is Ben and his Easter Bunny!! Thanks Grandma Judi and Grandpa Bob!!
I forgot to get pictures but Jess brought for Ben an adorable lamb blanket. I can't even explain it. I will have to get a picture later. But I am sure it will be a favorite for Ben once he is a little older. She also brought a beautiful pewter Christening cup engraved with Ben's initials. Does anyone know the tradition of a Christening cup??
Jess and I also got to have a nice girl's night out with Jess's SIL Christina. I had a great time and so did Ben!

So I have never been a master of small talk or chit chat. In fact I am TERRIBLE at it!! Most often when faced with a situation where small talk is necessary I find myself thinking, "I have nothing to say..." I have tried to figure out ways to improve in this area (because it does make me a bit socially awkward LOL), but to no avail.
So now I am the proud momma of a most darling little boy. And as I am sitting and feeding him through the day and he is looking up at me with those big beautiful eyes I feel I should have all sorts of important stories and lessons to tell him about. But again I come up with a total blank!!
So what do you more seasoned mothers DO while feeding your baby? Or do you just sit in silent wonder?

Politically, this is brilliant. He's in Beaumont Texas, and this speech is stitching together family values Republicans and Democratic-voting African Americans--with a common conservative theme--in a way that I've never seen a politician do before. And doing it with class and humor.
Leaving aside the fact that the Chief Executive of the Federal government really doesn't have authority over what gets taught in schools and how, he totally makes sense when he talks about parental responsibility. And everyone in the audience knows it. Check out some of those ladies in back! :)
