Sending chills down my spine!

I have a bunch of photos to be blogged! I just have to get them onto the computer, the write about them a bit! Its amazing how long it can really take!

Berlin has been teething the last few weeks. It's been a hole bunch of no fun for anyone around.

This story starts about a month ago, when my Mother-in-law was in town. I was getting dressed, and my cousin, who passes away a few years ago, descieded to visit me. You know what I mean. When you are not thinking of anything, or anyone, and someone you were close to that passed pops in your head, well that's what David did. I was kind of mad at him, cause I was running late. Later that day Patty and I talked about it, she told me that I can ask him to leave if its not a good time, and I can also ask him for help.

A few nights after she left, Berlin was not sleeping at night. I asked David to play guitar so Berlin would go to sleep. About 5 mins later she was out cold! Some nights after that, I asked Myrna, Benjis Mom, to help out.
This is where the chilling story really starts. It was about 11:30 and Benji and i were sitting on the couch and I decided to ask Myrna for some help.
 "Hi Myrna, I know we never met, but I'm going to ask a favor of you... I would really like it of you could help your grand daughter... your second one, to sleep through the night... I really need a full night of sleep..." THUMP! and a bad look at Benji, "Thanks for helping in advance!"
Then I turned to Benji and said 'why did you kick the couch!'
'I didn't!'
'I swear I did not! It was the spring in the couch!'

Really! Does that send chills down your back too! Benji and I were a little freaked out!
You know what happened! Berlin slept through the night!

Thanks again Myrna!

as the world turns...

Benji has been working on getting his contractors license. A few weeks he took the test, and passed! He is now a contractor! I'm so happy for him. And so proud to be his wife!

Berlin has been growing like a weed! She has three new teeth, molars! And she is now cutting an eye tooth.
She says 'no' very clearly! Its funny. She is now saying 'please' & 'thank you.' which has got to be the cutest thing I have ever heard! Also when I ask, she gives me a kiss and a hug.

Our neighbors got 2 pit-bull-puddle puppies, Tux and Elvis. They are so cute! Benji and I love going over there to see them, Berlin liked them when they were a lot smaller, but now that they are about 10-12lbs, she does not like them. Yesterday, we went over there and James Brown got into their yard, the three of them were running around, and jumping all over the place, and sometimes even on Berlin. Berlin waived her little finger and said so clearly, 'No, no, no!" to the dogs!
