New Jersey Pictures

Benjamin and I recently returned from visiting my 91-year old grandma. We flew out to New Jersey, so it was a bunch of firsts for him - first time flying in an airplane; first time meeting Grandma Nana; first time at the shore.

We got to spend time with Grandma, Grandpa Don, who flew in from Texas to help, Cousin Amy and her family (husband Chris and boys Nicholas and Owen), Aunt Ruth and Uncle Bob, and Aunt Linda and Uncle Dick.

Cousin Amy's sons, Owen and Nicholas, with Ben.

This is why NJ is called the garden state.

Touchdown, Cowboys!!! (Grandpa Don was teaching Ben how to cheer for his favorite team.)

My cousin, Amy, gave me this wonderful toy for Ben to play with.

Just looking cute!

Check out the thumb between his fingers.

Ben and Nana having a conversation.

Hanging out with Grandpa Don.

Benjamin and Nana taking a quick nap.

Dreaming sweet dreams of airplane rides. (Notice the smile!)

Some Favorite Pictures

I caught Ben sucking his left first finger while clasping both hands together!

Ben's Baptism

Ben was baptised on Saturday, October 6th at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church. He was so good - he didn't fuss at all during the mass - even when Fr. Dodge poured the holy water over his head!
