Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day wishes to our moms, grandmas, "second moms" and friends who are moms! We love you and appreciate all of your support and often behind-the-scenes hard work!

We had a lovely breakfast at Ingredient, walked around Town Center for a few minutes, then headed home for a nap. After nap & his lunch, we headed over to Jerry & Herb's for dinner & dessert with the family. Ben was kind of clingy and Serious Baby this morning as he is teething again but had an awesome new friend to console him, thanks to Uncle Jeff & Rebecca, who went to see Alice Cooper last night!

Ben has seen Alice Cooper's appearance on "The Muppet Show," but somehow did not seem to make the connection between that and his new super-soft bear. Think it's too early to show him some "Wayne's World"?

Ben also independently decided he wanted to push his stroller for a while before getting in it. He pushed Alice Cooper & Teddy around 2 sides of the restaurant with only a little steering help (he was managing to only turn it in circles for the first 30 seconds!).

Ben also got a haircut Thursday night as his hair was getting unruly. He was kind of tired after a hard day of play & learning at daycare, but did perk up a little at the end! Again, I was happy to fork over the small fee so that I didn't have to try to cut his hair in a straight line as he continually turned and twisted to look at everything! I really appreciate that these stylists have the skill & bravery to do so! I guess some kids just get transfixed by the movies they have, but Ben really didn't know what to make of Thomas the Tank Engine and didn't care about Dora other than to have the DVD box to hold. Maybe I should bring a Giada DVD to his next haircut!
