Cowboy Ben Turns One!

Ben turned one back in May, but life was a little crazy at the time. So (now that he is 14 months old) it was finally time to celebrate! I was actually really happy that we waited a bit. Every month he understands and does so much more, so I felt like he enjoyed it more than he would have a couple of months ago. We had a great time celebrating Mr. Ben and hanging out family and friends.

I have about eleventy billion pictures, so I am going to split them up over a few posts. First up the most important part...the cake! Ben was really more into the balloons at first, but he got the concept of cake diving eventually. And then he threw it all up. Oh the memories!

Ben Has Surgery

When Max had his adenoids out and tubes in back at the beginning of the year, we said we would probably be back with Ben sooner than later. Well, we were right. This poor little guy has struggled for the past year with sinus infections and just general yuckiness (totally a word). Finally, since he had turned one and the sick just wouldn't quit, we took a trip to the ENT and set up the surgery.

Mr. Ben had his surgery earlier this month. He has struggled a lot more with the recovery than Max did, but he was a lot younger and we think his adenoids were actually a lot bigger than Max's ever were. He is feeling better these days, though, and we hope the surgery helps him a lot!

 Hanging out in the waiting room in his was early.

 Ready for surgery!

 Recovery. He actually woke up pretty well. 

Back home...and drooling all over the couch.
