We did a lot of friend visiting, walks, and local fun in June. Here are some snapshots of life as a Richards!

Brian’s aunt got Ben this puppy for Christmas. It hooks up to the computer and you can teach it to say the child’s name and favorite food, animal, and color. Ben loes hearing it sing to him!

Ben’s response to his Baby Neptune dvd. This mama loves that Ben sits long enough to get her a quiet lunch

This clothes pin wreath is quite possibly my first non-reenacting related craft since Ben was born. I haven’t taken it down yet because I love it so much!

We got a little baby pool and Ben loves splashing and rolling around in it

Ben hasn’t quite started crawling yet but can roll wherever he wants to go. Brian texted this photo to me when I was running errands one day. Time to baby proof the house!

I had a GREAT trip to the baby consignment store and found a simple sling that was exactly my size for $8

We took a weekend trip to Chicago so Brian could attend Word Camp Chicago at the end of the month and this is the gorgeous and comfortable apartment we rented.

Ben checked out the apartment and decided wood floors are slippery

My baby and me at Navy Pier. You can faintly see the massive bruise on his forehead where he came in contact with the recliner the day we left for Chicago

The view from the outdoor patio at the Shedd where we ate lunch

Seahorse!
