WRANGLER BUTTS DRIVE ME NUTS!

FOOLED YOU! Ya'll thought I was talking about my hubby's butt, but I WASN'T!
Although his is cute and all, this one takes the cake!
***For those skimmers of blogs, skim to the bottom--it is another giggle video***
I know you can't really see it, but she is wearing wranglers--hence the title. My aunt gave us these. I usually hate "stranglers!" Now, only two people in my life make 'em look good--Ben and Charly.
I don't know when I am going to get over the fact how alike they look. I am glad to know some of our "viewers" agree on both our comments. She looks like "Jack" and acts like me!
**Jack is a nickname Jane gave Ben because he used to shoot her with a BB gun from the top of a barn and somedays it really does fit him.....** I think she is going to be a lil' cowgirl. She is wearing Ben's hat.
She is quite the photogenic type don't ya think?!?!

The next item is the BEST! As some of you may have seen in the last post, Charly is giggling now. She cracks us up! So the other night I took off on the dirt bike to get some much needed items for din-din. I get back and Ben couldn't wait to show me. If you can't tell, he is barking at her. Also, if you look really close, you can see her tooth in the top right corner of her mouth! She is only 4 months and she is teething. WHAT A TURD!

The Giggles

It has been a while since Ben and I posted anything. We aren't up to much, just school! I am preparing for my final and Ben is just knee deep in his prerequisites and what not.
The coolest thing happened to us that we never want to forget. Today, Charly got the GIGGLES! Oh man was I proud! Now this my friend is a trait she got from her mama! THATS RIGHT, she may look like Ben but she acts like ME! WAHOO!

THE GREMLIN!

YES, I GAVE BIRTH TO A GREMLIN!
I am happy to report that our sweet little gremlin is growing too fast!
She has discovered what I like to call the "two finger gag technique." It seriously cracks us up when she starts gagging and doesn't quite get why and keeps shoving those fingers in her mouth.
Charly is like mommy, she loves time with Ben. As soon as he can put the books down, they are two peas in a pod!
Believe it or not, she can stand!
My awesome sister came to see us over conference weekend. She is the only family member I have that has just come to see us for no reason. MAN I LOVE HER!
Right now we are trying to teach the gremlin how to sleep. My friend Laura lent me a book on sleeping habits. Ben and I are working very hard to apply them and not give in to her.
Seriously, it is really hard! Just look at her pictures and no further explanation is needed. She is a love bug!
But we are trying and in the words of my pa, "don't let her win!" That one cracked us up! That is my pappy, tell it how it is.

For those of you who have waaaaayyy to much free time....you can check out a video I made for my parentals. Grandma and Grandpa Bennett are pretty busy and don't get to see The Gremlin too much so I posted an update on youtube...here is the link.
