Wow, this has been a busy couple of weeks for us. First, Gramma, Grampa, GG, and PapaJohn were all in town to visit. During this time we had the big First Birthday Party for Ben! (Hence the visitors.) This was followed by Ben’s one year check up (with vaccines, making for a tired boy). We ended with my cousin Kit and her daughter Ellen coming to visit, and Aunt Chris and Uncle Wayne swinging into town too! Whew! We had a wonderful time, but it was busy!
The best part of Kit and Ellen coming to visit was that they got to meet Ben in person! The last time they ‘saw’ Ben was at Kit’s wedding. That was in June of 2013, so I was super pregnant with Ben. That was fun, but it is so much more fun to see Ben interact with them! Ellen has always had a way with babies and little kids, even when she was a little kid herself. She got along great with Ben. He really wanted to get her attention and keep her focused on him. It was so cute! She built him a couple of great mega block creations to knock over too. He was a fan.
Unfortunately with having to work and Ben’s schedule, we didn’t get to go on all the adventures Kit and Ellen went on. But we did get to spend a good amount of time enjoying each other’s company. That’s a nice way of saying we got to sit around and talk a lot. It was so nice to just spend time together and play with Ben.
Ben loves spending time with family!
