Walk in the Snow

We're getting steady snow today and should receive about 12 to 18 inches by tonight. Ickie didn't have to go to campus, so we took a walk over to the library and then along the river before the snow accumulated too much. Here's a photo of me (dressed practically but with haphazard fashion sense) and one of Ben catching snowflakes on his tongue.

Benny the Shark

We got home from a great trip yesterday: First we all flew to Huntsville for K and W's wedding. From there, Ickie came home while Ben and I drove to Birmingham to stay with Jackamo and family for a few days. I was nervous about flying back by myself with Ben, but he was so well behaved. He slept for most of the trip and charmed everyone on the plane when he awoke.

When we got home, Ickie came in to see Ben, who smiled at him, then immediately grabbed his finger and bit it HARD. Ickie says he's never seen him move so quickly.

Once home, Ben wasted no time getting down to serious baby business, which in this case involved getting naked, grabbing his feet, rolling over, and formulating a clever plan to defeat the green dragon:

Unfortunately, there was another malevolent creature lurking nearby:

Ben received this snappy New England Patriots sweatsuit from friends J & A for Christmas:

He's also been exercising those chunky legs in his hanging seat (complete with drool-catching tray):
