4 months

Well, our boy is growing. Ben just had his 4 month well baby appt and he weighs 14 lbs 8 oz and is a whopping 26 inches tall! His height puts him in the 90th percentile! He is now laughing and smiling at everybody and I've been told that he even rolled over the other day. Of course, I didn't see it, but I'm still pretty proud all the same. We are now over 3 weeks without Daddy and seem to be hanging in there. Ben makes little videos nightly to say hi to Daddy and he gets some in return. Everytime he watches he seems to recognize Daddy in the videos, so we'll keep showing them until we can see him in person again.

I wasn't kidding about the Let it Snow comment

Yup, it snows here in Misawa. It started Christmas night and didn't stop for three days. I think they said it was between 3 - 4 feet of snow. It's pretty to look at, not fun to drive in especially when they don't plow or salt the roads. We took Ben outside in his little snow suit for a little excursion. He hasn't had much outdoor experience since he's been born because it was already starting to get a little cold. Once he's older, we'll make sure he gets in his play time. There is a little playground down the street that we might try next summer.

Jordan left yesterday for Weapons School in Las Vegas. I'm sure he's a lot warmer there.

Ben is liking daycare - I took these pictures there. See, he's smiling!
Yes, he works out regularly. You should see his muscles!
