Peter's first tooth!

Peter had been acting like he was working on a tooth for quite a while now, so I've been checking often to see if one had come through the surface yet. Saturday, February 20th, 2010 I noticed that one had come through! Peter has his first tooth.

(If you click on the image to see it bigger you can just barely make out the glint of white on his lower gum.)

Benjamin's 5th Birthday

Benjamin's 5th birthday was February 17th, 2010. The theme was, of course, Spiderman. Since Benjamin's enjoyment of Spiderman continues, I went ahead and purchased a Spiderman cake pan. Daddy had the day off of work, so we had the party on his actual birthday. It was a bit rushed though because we had it scheduled to include Dan, Ben's uncle who wouldn't get home from work until around 5:00 pm. Also, since it was a Wednesday, we had to rush so everyone could get off to Wednesday church. But, it was lots of fun for Benjamin to have the family there to celebrate his big day. :)

A few weeks before his birthday, after a discussion about him wanting to blow bubbles but he didn't have any, I mentioned maybe he'd get some for his birthday. Benjamin told me:

"I hope so! And a spiderman toothbrush, that would be special! And a fishing pole with fish!" (Last year from Dan & Becky he got a plastic fishing pole with a magnet at the end to catch plastic fish with metal on their mouths. It didn't take long for the much-loved toy to break so this year he wanted another, which so far has lasted longer than last year's!)
