Here is a great shot of him when he took it to bed to cuddle with it!
When will they come up with BDay cards made out of beef jerky for people? I would love a card like that.....hint hint

We test drove lots of cars, and I am left with the same feeling I always get when dealing with car salesmen. Mainly, how in the world can they keep their jobs. If these people actually make money behaving as they do, I could make a fortune. Or maybe their are people who can be convinced to spend $30,000 on the first car they test drive when they are only partially in the market. Its infuriating how many of them totally drop you once it become aparent that you aren't going to buy the car that day.
BTW if you are looking for a Lexus may I plug Tom Dean @ Woodfield Lexus if I ever buy another lexus it will probably be from him. Why not make it 3/3 :)

At first he played with his rattle for the first time, and then he focused on his gym toys and grab for them for this first time.
Click here to watch Ben play with his toys.
Its amazing to think that sometime in the last 2-3 weeks Ben has figured out that he is an independent person from the world around him. Imagine if we kept making such grand deductions our entire life.
The bigger first was that he rolled over from back to front for the first time ever. And he did it three times in one night!

I finally ran into this quote on http://www.lileks.com/ that described my feelings exactly....
"Nice little coffee shop, even if they ask if they can start a coffee drink for you. It makes that sound like such a long and arduous procedure. Great! We’ll begin the work on the blueprints promptly, and we should begin construction within the month."
If you have a senese of humor at all like mine you will appreciate james lileks.

The first that we saw was that he began noticing his hand. Its kind of funny because he only does it with his right hand, and it doesn't hold his attention very long, but he is amazed by it.
He also has begun to be fasicinated, and I mean fascinated by himself in the mirror, he doesn't really talk to himself, but he will stare for a long time at the mirror.
I will try to post pictures if I am able to capture any of these cute new tricks.

She said no pictures of her, but I thought you might like to meet her too.
Later in the day, Ben listened to cousin Tim explain all about video games.

Here is a shot of Alex pretending that he knows how to read the racing form
TRex shows off the first winning ticket of the day. She went 3 for 3 to open her afternoon!!!! In fact she didn't start to lose until I started copying her bets..Hmmmmmm.
Cool picture of the chicago skyline from the skybox we were in. More impressive in person. Can you guess which one the Sears tower is?

Very exciting if I do say so myself.
Some CoWorkers and I are going to be celebrating at a local establishment with a round on me. It will be my first night out without the family since Ben came. This is a bad thing.

The cake summarizes the day before it even starts.
Guests arrived through the rain to the church. We had to keep our eyes on this little guest as he tried to make a break for it.
