In his pj's begging me not to put him to bed with his cute cheesy smile.

Bentley helping sweep the floor. What a good boy. He actually does a great job!

I hung our stockings from the stairs and decorated this corner of the room with our nativity, santa, and other decorations.

I put the christmas decorations on our tree. It is our first tree and we were so excited to get it all put together. Even though I can't find a tree topper I like.

Cooper is so good to let Bentley play with him even though he is trying to run away in this picture:)

Best buddies. Bentley loves Cooper


Ok so now that i have caught up since Halloween...... (I have had this guilt that I wasn't posting and every time I looked at my blog I got overwhelmed thinking about all the pictures and events that have happened since my last post). I still know I am leaving tons out about the month of November but I will just have to move past that:)
Bentley has learned and grown so much in this past month. He is such a character and we are entertained by him daily. He has learned all sorts of new words and will repeat ( not exactly) what we say. Recently he says: church, santa, tree, mine, dogs, books, movie, snack, treat, juice,outside, bye bye, and many others. He loves playing with other kids; especially wrestling, trucks, tag, hide and seek. An odd thing I have found he likes to do is to get out several toilet paper rolls and stack them. He has such a special spirit and will hug or kiss anyone he knows is sad or that he accidently hurt. He loves to sing and dance and will start moving to the beat as soon as he hears the music. At church he hands us our hymn books as soon as the organist starts playing. He loves to look at and point at all the Christmas lights too. He loves acting like a big boy and wants to help with chores, the dogs, open the garage, and work out with daddy. It is so funny because he will do push ups and pull ups with Jon. Jon occasionally uses bentley as a weight as well and Bentley thinks this is fun. He now sleeps in a toddler bed and has done great. It was harder on me than him for sure. He loves when mommy and daddy sing him to sleep. Jon will rub his eyebrow and nose and this puts him right out. He sleeps with his glow worm doll that sings and lights up as well as his favorite blanket. Bentley loves, loves, loves to read books. He will have me read through all of them and then over again. We find him in his room reading all by himself. He also loves trains and shooting hoops in his little basketball net. Jon says he is the next Michael Jordan and it quite proud that Bentley is a natural so far at all sports. He colors beautiful pictures in nursery every Sunday. Lastly, Bentley loves to do what his daddy is doing and will follow him all around. He loves to act like he is working on the phone or the computer just like his dad. He also recently started wanting to wear his hats that he never wanted before but this makes Jon happy. We are so thankful to have him in our home and for the special angel that he his. I just love his hugs and kisses.
Jon has been busy with work, working out, putting up our christmas tree, holiday shopping, and hanging out with Bentley.
I have been busy, with work, nesting(getting baby stuff together and organized, cleaning ect.), holiday shopping, and playing with my sweet little boy. My best friend Jade threw me a Baby girl shower and I can't thank her enough. It really got me in the mode to get things done because up until that point I was really dragging my feet. I was so blessed to see so many friends and family and to be given so many nice things to prepare for our baby girls arrival. Thank you a million times everyone for your help and for coming. I have to say that I am more nervous to have a little girl than I was to have a little boy. I am not sure why but I am also excited because little girls bows and clothes are so fun to look at. I hope that I can be a great mom to both my kids and also a great wife to Jon. Wish me luck:) She is due in three weeks and with the holidays fast approaching things are going to get a little chaotic.
We are loving our new ward and have met so many nice people. Bentley has the best nursery leaders too:)
