17 months

Sorry for some many pics but I couldn't choose!! Benjamin recently had his portrait done and I loved all the pictures. It was so hard to decide. Here are the best of the best.

I can't believe how much he has grown in the last few months. He is running all over the place and "talking" up a storm. I can see his little personality come out more each day. I also love that he can communicate so much better and "tell" me his wants and needs. I feel so blessed to have him. I love that little boy!

The Old is New Again

I have a new favorite TV show. 90210. As soon as I found out about the remake my interest was peaked. I was a HUGE fan on the original. I mean HUGE. My friends and I had weekly watching parties and discussed the characters as if we really knew them. I know it is a little high school of me to be watching but I couldn't help it. They teased me by telling me that Kelly and Brenda would be on! Another reason I wanted to watch was that there was void in my teen soap operas since OC went off a few years ago, another show that I LOVED!

The best thing about the new show is that it still has the characters from the original show mixed in with the new story lines. I was thinking that this was going to be another teeny bopper show that had horrible writing and bad actors. I was pleasantly surprised with whole show. Some of the characters are weak but I'm already hooked and can't wait to see what happens next.
