Benaiah loves Toby's harmonica!

Posted by Gabrielle

Our cute little boy who just turned 15 months old!
We'll definitely have to get Benaiah a harmonica of his own!
"Look ma, no hands!"

Benaiah Enjoying a Beautiful Saturday Afternoon

by Gabrielle

Saturday afternoon, while Mommy was cutting the boy's hair, Benaiah had a wonderful time outside.
"Goodbye, I'm off with my truck."

"They're here. Come and see!"

What a cute boy!

"Where did it go? I had that little spider here a minute ago!"

"Hee Hee, I found you. You can't hide from me!"

Timothy playing hat-toss with Benaiah. Some were successful, as in the picture above...

...and some were not!

Benaiah in the Sandbox

Posted by Gabrielle

Yesterday afternoon was a nice, sunny and pleasantly warm afternoon, perfect for Benaiah to play in the sandbox.
"Here, let me see those for a minute." to Elliot who was trimming the grass around the sandbox that the lawnmower can't reach.
"Sand is so much fun especially when...
...I can dump it on my feet!"
"My first taste of sand and I'm not so sure I like it."
"But, sand on my hand is more interesting."
"Arianne, come and get me. I'm all sandy!"

Also, we put shoes on Benaiah for the first time yesterday and he screamed until he walked around in them a bit and got used to them!

Guess what?...

by Timothy

Yup, you guessed it: Another Birthday! What else is new in the Hellwig home? Yesterday, we celebrated Arianne's 14th Birthday!

In the Hellwig home, the Birthday person chooses the dinner for that night. Perhaps the best part of the meal Arianne picked was the dessert!
Peach Tart, Ice Cream,Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream, and Chocolate Cheesecake: a dessert to be remembered!
Benaiah waits (im)patiently for dessert.
And of course, The Official Birthday Picture!

Happy Birthday Arianne!
