Porter the Bear


I have the sweetest baby girl!
Porter and I sat outside for a bit and handed out candy to the trick or treaters.

Mary came for the weekend!! It was a quick visit, but we ALL enjoyed having her. She helped me out a lot and LOVES her niece and nephew. (They love her too!)

Thanks Mary!

Recent Events

Our little bear. Porter had a great time growling at everyone.
At "Boo at the Zoo." The kids get to see the animals and get candy! It's great! This is Porter with one of his good friends James.
Porter's shirt says "all my friends are monsters!" (A present from Aunt Haley.)
He still loves to hold her and she's now his BEST friend.
Our big girl! She's almost 6 weeks old already. She still smiles and giggles a lot in her sleep and tries to talk to us. We love her! She's a great baby!

Our Little Fisherman

Ben took the little man out for an evening of "sishing" and this is what Porter caught. He sure was proud!

He made this face when Ben told him to touch it! Haha! He doesn't love fish THAT much.

Porter LOVES to be outside and he's such a good helper! Good thing we had a boy first!

This was the view of our backyard on May 6th. Luckily, it was all gone by noon.

Trying on daddy's helmet and biking shoes. This boy really likes hats, just like his daddy. A couple nights ago during his bath, he put a bottle ring on his head and said, "I'm a princess!" YIKES!! We're not sure where he picked that up, but we got a good laugh from it.

Time With Mom

Porter loves to help me in the kitchen and especially LOVES to wear his apron great grandma made for him.

Day With Dad

Ben wanted to go fishing and took the little man... leaving mom alone for SEVERAL hours! It was great for everyone! We all look forward to many more daddy/son outings.

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter weekend was VERY cold here so we decided to wait a week and have an egg hunt when we had some family in town. We hid 35 eggs in the backyard and Porter found every one!! (With a little help!)

Mr. Potato Head

Porter was so proud of his Mr. Potato head. He did it all by himself!


Ben graduated! HOORAY!! The ceremony was this past weekend and his parents and sister, Mary, came for the special occasion. We're so proud of him!
This was taken after the ceremony. After sitting for 45 minutes, Porter was ready to be free. I kept my jacket on from my previous employer AmeriTitle because that is where I worked the entire time Ben was in school (except for the last month and a half). Thanks AmeriTitle for helping us get through the last 4 years!

So cute!

Our graduate.

Quick family photo before the ceremony.

Just Some Fun Pictures

He's just too cute... I have to tickle him!
We finally got a SMILE out of this kid except it looks a little forced.

This is what happens when daddy watches Porter all day.

Still working on smiling for the camera.
