Funny Faces

What is one of the greatest things to do to an infant? Well give them funny faces of course!!
It is payback for waking us up at night.

We like to name the faces, too...
This one is the old man who collects baseball cards and some other random ancient artifact.


This iis the Chinese man who has too much cheek skin


I'll give a free benjamin visit to whoever comes up with the most clever name for this one...



We really have been having a blast with our latest family addition - almost too much of a blast. Jared is exhausted from prepping for his GRC conference thinger in Massachusetts (so much for catching the first fathers day weekend? It's okay, we'll celebrate on Monday!) this coming weekend and I... well I think there has been too much visiting and going out for ice cream and vehicle shopping (more on this later) and not enough Wii playing... Jesse, can we score Mario Kart back, btw??? or...anyone else have m.k. who wants to donate it for a bit ...until i beat it? ;)

On that note,
In case you're wondering... we're also doing Okay in terms of... dealing with a crying/screaming one week old. He doesn't do it often, but we've found a few tricks. He likes being held and dancing to music. He also finds Jared's head amusing (go figure...). But my personal favorite is... that him sitting in Jared's lap and watching the tv also calms him down. It might also be noted that the midnight "lullaby" we use happens to be the Super Mario Brothers 1-1 song:




Jared's boyfriends should know that... Benjamin is .... destined to Brawl...
