He took Benjamin out with him wearing his 12 month winter coat I got him. It was a great deal so I don't mind if he doesn't get much wear out of it because our next boy can wear it (potentially).
Benjamin seemed to be having some problems moving his arms. Jared kept calling him Marshmallow Boy.

I haven’t listed anything since Wednesday so that is 4 things to list that I am thankful for…
I am thankful for experiencing the first snowfall of the year with Benjamin. Benjamin and I were hanging out in the kitchen this morning getting things ready for church when I saw it was snowing. I picked him up and had him look out the window. I decided to go outside into the freezing cold and show him the snow up close. I caught a snowflake and brought my hand close to his face to watch it melt away. It was wonderful to experience with him the first snowfall of the year and his first experience with snow. It was beautiful to see everything lightly dusted in snow.
I am thankful for my husband! He is such an amazing person. He makes me laugh frequently. I am always impressed and grateful to see how he is with Benjamin. They have a pretty special bond already. Jared spoils me frequently and I don’t know that I always tell him thank you. He lets me (within reason) have whatever I want. He lets me go scrapbooking on a Saturday and come pick Benjamin up once he is done giving service so I can finish what I am doing. He takes care of things I rarely even think about like finances and the garbage and I very rarely say thank you. So thank you to my husband for being the best husband for me.
I am thankful for this time of year that helps turn everyone’s thoughts (for the most part) to our Savior, Jesus Christ. I love this time of year. It is my favorite. While I do enjoy the presents I really love turning my thoughts more towards the miracle of his birth and the gifts he has given us like the atonement. Without the atonement our lives would be pointless we would have no way to return to live with our Heavenly Father again.
I am thankful for my warm house. I know I am blessed to have a warm place to keep all of my things and to lay myself down to sleep each night. Especially as the days get colder I become more thankful for my warm home, clothes and blankets.

Benjamin really gets into his jumper! He just loves it! I thought this one was so cute because he is naked so you get to see his chubby little body. I know he is not so little but you know what I mean. We were watching AFV earlier tonight and they were played a video of twins and they were 8 months old and Jared and I looked at each other and laughed. Benjamin totally had them beat with being able to move on his own and for size at 5 months. We thought the babies were 3-4 months.
Jared is so funny to watch with Benjamin. I couldn't stop smiling myself while they were playing so I quickly grabbed the camera to get some of the action. It just makes me laugh to listen to Benjamin laugh. It's so contagious! Isn't it?!

Benjamin was having a blast starring at the house while I took his picture.
