To those of you who were so desperately awaiting the pictures I promised from the cabin...too bad. I left my camera at home on accident. Although, I always forget my camera anyway. There are pictures documenting the events, they just aren't mine and I don't have them. Oh well.

Anyway, the cake I was so excited for turned out pretty well. It was a spaghetti and meatballs cake. Just a regular chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting piped on it to look like noodles and chocolate donut holes coated in raspberry jam to look like meatballs. It was fun, and super easy.

Bentley did an awesome job at the cabin and finally agreed with us putting him on an earlier bedtime. We're still working on that at home, now, but we'll get there. He's still getting plenty of sleep at night (naptimes are a different story, however). He also started taking baths in the sink, which he has a total blast with. He loves to play in the bubbles and generally ends up eating his washcloth. Which brings me to my next point about Bentley... He sits up all by himself. He's been doing it for a few weeks now, but he is a super champ at it now. And he's so close to crawling. He gets up on his hands and knees (or sometimes feet) and will rock around and bring his knees forward, but then he won't move his arms. Instead, he just falls flat on his face, generally moving backwards. He's so close, though, and I'm not too sure how I feel about that. At least with rolling over he only rolls in one direction. He rolls from his back to his belly going toward the left and from his belly to his back going back the direction from whence he came. He never actually goes anywhere. Once he starts crawling I know he's going to be all over the place.

Bentley has also ventured into the world of vegetables. He has tried squash, peas, green beans and avocado. He will eat all of them but struggles with the texture if they are not perfectly creamy (he doesn't like the skin on peas or chunks of avocado). Oh, did I mention that I make my own baby food. That's where the texture comes into play since I get to be in charge of that. Next on the list we have sweet potatoes, carrots and cauliflower. I made the cauliflower today and Spence freaked out when he came home because he thinks it smells like poop. What a boy, everything can be referenced to poop. Oh, well. Bentley now eats veggies and cereal for lunch and dinner, and he still nurses for breakfast and snacks. I love that boy. He's too cute!!!

That's about it as far as life goes for us. Spencer is still working with Barry and has been accepted to BSU for the fall. His plans for now are to major in Secondary Education-History and Social Studies. I'm so excited for him to finally become what he wants to be when he grows up!! I still stay home during the day with Bentley and help him learn and grow.

This weekend we're going to visit our friends Kadie and Jacob for Kadie's baby shower and most of the D25 girls (my roommates from college) are coming so I'm super stoked for that!! Maybe I'll remember my camera this time ;) The last time we were together was for Jana's wedding in Vegas. I miss these girls far too much...and half of them are missing in that picture. POO: HERE WE COME!!! Have a happy day everyone!!!!
