cracker hat and number 3

cracker hat
Benson wanted to make a hat this morning. But not just any hat:

cracker hat-2
A hat filled with crackers and a door he could open.

And so we did.

And this is what most of the photos look like because Benson likes to pose like a weirdo (but it's cute to his mom).

And now for something completely different:

Awwwww baby! He/she was a squirming away in there today. So so so cute at 6cm long, and I'm further along than I thought! Wahoo (13 weeks on Friday)! See you on or after April 17th little sweetie pie.

First of all, the pictures of Benson are some of my favorites EVER. Oh my goodness! Priceless, Carrie. A cracker hat with a door? Coolest kid alive and coolest mom on the planet for doing it. If I had the trophies, they would be in the mail! And baby 3#...Aunt Meg looooooves you!!! SO so so excited!

and i have to concur with the common opinion here: that hat rocks.
