Life with Bennett [week 22}

Hi friends! I totally flaked on posting this last Friday because I had to do Bennett's 5 month update! Anyway! Here's what we've been up to!


Always a fun time in Target!

Ella seriously wanted these glasses. I had to tell her no.

And this little joy boy was ecstatic to get more fruit snacks!!! He would live solely on fruit snacks if we let him!

Friday night, my parents were in town and wanted to take Ella out to dinner for a (very early) birthday celebration. She chose hibachi (after we vetoed Chick Fil-A and Viva Chicken)! 
It was Bennett's first hibachi experience and he wasn't sure what to make of it!

Lucas thought chopsticks went on his head, naturally.

He loved the big flame! He did not love when the chef squirted him with water.

Ella got a birthday treat! They sang to her with a big drum and she danced!

Bennett just snuggled with Nay Nay!


I had to work at the Y and came home to this hot mess. 

Please ignore the mess of toys behind her!

We also had lots of rolling practice with Bennett. He is SO close!


Our friends in Ohio got A LOT of snow, so Ella pretended we did too. I think it's funny she finds snow such a novelty...I can't stand it! 

We had a very boring day doing laundry, organizing clothes and cleaning the house! Oh and playing with Anna and Elsa ;)


Confession: I check Ella's teacher's lesson plans that she emails out every month and try to dress Ella accordingly! This day, they were learning about outer space, so of course she had to wear her new space dress!!

More rolling over practice....

....followed by playing with big brother and sister's toys!


It was cold so B got to wear the cutest little sweater!!!

He also kick-started his modeling career! I am having a Shrimp and Grits Kids trunk show with Elizabeth again this year, so my boys got to go over to our rep, Tammy's house to try on pieces from the trunk!

There are so many cute options this year!!! If you want to order something, feel free to reach out to me, or enter code 70024 at checkout! ;)

Lucas was not as cooperative...we finally got him to stand still by letting him hold the dog's toys!


I finally made it to the dentist!! I was originally supposed to go in October and completely forgot....rescheduled for 2 weeks ago and I showed up at the wrong time. Third time's a charm, and my teeth looked perfect!

After the dentist, Lucas got a much-needed haircut!

And we stopped by Trader Joe's...this boy couldn't get enough of the oranges they were sampling!

Our Wednesday evenings got more chaotic, because after Ella's dance.... was the first week back at Avondale Adventures! At least they eat dinner there, so I don't have to clean up at home!


Ella had Donuts with Dad at her preschool! She was BEYOND excited for Travis to come to school with her!

While those two were at preschool, the boys and I went to Ashley's for another week of Bible study!

These two boys and the hand-holding is just the cutest!

We concluded our week by taking 96 pictures of Bennett during his 5 month photo shoot. I am not even exaggerating that number! He is the cutest age right now!

Have a great week!
