My Valentine

I printed off a few Valentine cards for RJ's grandparents, aunts, and uncles. I sent them a week late, but they were just too cute and punny not to send. I didn't print a ton, so I hope others can enjoy them here.

This last one is a personalized valentine made for my Dad and siblings. If you haven't seen Dana Carvey's sketch, ''Choppin' Broccoli,'' from his SNL audition, then watch it here. You won't regret it. We quote it all the time in the Bennion home. I wouldn't be surprised if this Valentine card inspires a music video of RJ chompin' broccoli while her Grandpa sings some weird parody to the original.

Happy Valentine's Day two weeks ago!

Circus family for Halloween
In California with the Bennions
In Virginia with the Redferns



And she will be eight months old in less than two weeks. WHAT.
She is sitting up by herself and always rolling over. (Right now she is working her way over to me from the other side of the room.)
She loves to hold her arms out and twirl her wrists like she's directing a choir. It's pretty adorable.
She's recently started noticing her tongue and will stick it out at you.
She has a lot of red hair on the top of her head, and pretty much nothing everywhere else. So, basically she is a hipster boy.
She eats mashed fruits and veggies like a big girl...and tries to eat everything else that is within reach.
We love to read together, dance, play peek-a-boo, and do other fun baby things.

She's the best.
