Thursday, Bennett and I had a little playdate with Lauren and Fern, Kira and Pearl and Bonnie and Josiah. B is always the oldest and I think he gets pretty bored of just looking at babies laying there...it's probably a good thing for him to get used to though!

Pearl and B:
(after he serenaded her)
We spent friday playing out on a couples' beautiful property from church.
The weather couldn't have been more perfect!
Some baby goats were born about an hour before we got there. 
They were super cute and bigger than you'd expect a newborn goat to be. 
B kept calling them puppies.
Bennett finally got to ride on a  pow-pow-powerwheel!
Our neighbors have one and he's been totally jealous of them.
Too bad the one he finally got to drive was pink and purple:
(and the battery was dead, so he really just got to  "drive " it)
B also got to ride on a "tractor":
(he's such a city boy)
He loved the 2 week old puppies:
Saturday Bennett wanted to wear a party hat for most of the morning:
and while Chris and his brother worked on the nursery, 
B and I hung out with my mom:
I made sure to leave the guys with cookies hoping it would motivate them to work efficiently:
I'd say my cookie motivation technique worked pretty well!
We now have a wall!
Chris finished painting last night and the nursery should be ready to be decorated by the end of next weekend!!! We still need to install and paint the trim, install and paint the door and closet, and Chris' dad is going to build some new shelving for the closet. 
We are so close!

B and I are off to the library today...I'm so glad this boy loves books!
We usually check out 30 at a time and I give him 15 once we get home and we switch them out for the "new" 15 when he gets bored with the first ones (usually after a week or so).
He will literally sit and read each one cover to cover after we bring them home, which means a little downtime for me...totally a win/win!

Happy Tuesday Friends!

    I love that photo of Bennett and Pearl, the wall looks great, and I think I have been out to that property before. Do they have a gym with a full basketball court that looks like a massive barn?

    ohhhh how I'm missing that sunshine! love how B is such a little bookworm:-) I've just started reading books to Josiah! It was always one of my favorite things to do whenever I babysat/nannied. Hope I can mold him into my own mister bookworm baby! xoxo
