Sleepy Ben

A couple of days ago Ben decided that he did not need to take a nap after a brief 5 minute cat nap in the car. Don't you just love those days? Anyhow, needless to say around dinner time he was feeling the affects of his decision. We have never seen Ben fall asleep anywhere accept in his car seat so this was kind of amazing to us. Enjoy the clip!

Oh Brother!

Harrison is finally here!

Praise God for he has given us another wonderful little boy! Harrison Gray Sears was born on Tuesday, November 11th at 6:24 p.m., weighing 9 pounds 14 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long. Only one ounce shy of Benjamin! God answered my prayers and made my labor easy and even a very joyful experience (I was little worried after being told he going to be a big one)! We are so excited to have him home with us now. He is such a joy and so sweet. Ben is loving being an older brother too! He has been perfecting the art of giving pat pats and kisses, and is very much concerned for the "babya" (as he says) when Harrison cries. Thank you for everyone's thoughts and prayers- we can't wait to introduce him to everyone!

Dance Dance Revolution

For the last couple of weeks we have been advocating (coffee) table dancing in our home, which I am sure that this is something we will regret someday soon in the form of a concussion. But, until then we are enjoying Ben's intense need to boogie down and all of his very special dance moves.

Harrison's Nursery

Harrison's nursery is finally done, so I thought I would share! We went with a monkey theme.

Well it is almost time to welcome Harrison into the world! We are so very excited with my November 15th due date just around the corner. We have been adding those final touches to the nursery, getting our bags packed just in case, and making those last minute preparations for his much anticipated arrival. I am even looking forward to labor this time- not that this pregnancy has been challenging, but because I kind of know what to expect this time around and hopefully I will be able to focus more on just enjoying the experience of meeting our son for the first time. One of those last minute preparations for the nursery called for me to take Ben on a little road trip today to gather something a little more personalized for Harrison's room.

Fortunately for me Wichita has a "Harry" street, but I have to say it was challenging finding one that didn't say "1500th Block" or "Sedgwick County" on it. Anyways, I hope Harrison likes it, and doesn't mind his nickname. I'll keep you posted on his arrival, until then please keep us in your prayers. :)

(Update!!! The good doctor approved an 11/11 induction date! Yeah! Can't wait!)


A friend of mine has one of the prettiest trees you could ask for this time of year in her front yard. You know the kind that boast those bright, bright yellow leaves with touches of red in them. Well I couldn't pass up trying to take a picture of Ben underneath it. Of course I forgot to get a better picture of the actual tree while talking Ben into a semi-smile or pose if you will, but you can tell by the leaves on the ground that the tree is perfect for Fall.

Darth Ben

Our church puts on a great thing for Halloween called Trunk or Treat in their front parking lot, in which our members go all out and decorate their trunks and dress up in costume to hand out candy to anyone who wants to bring their children by. This is the second year we have done this and I actually look forward to it because so many of our members are soooo creative and Ben just loves it! Last year Ben went as Yoda, but this year he went as Darth Vader. Does that say anything about his evolving behavior changes? Well...let me just say that he is a normal almost two year old who is learning mountains of information everyday, but he is still sweeter than sweet and steals my heart with every smile and laugh. Anyways, Ben disregarded all the chocolate candy (to our later disappointment when raiding his candy pail) for any kind of sucker he could find, which made for a very sticky boy with blueish lips. Getting him to go to sleep on a sugar high was a challenge, but worth seeing him have so much fun!!!
