The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Last night was Jenn and my date night. We (Jenn) decided to go see Benjamin Button. I have heard a lot of good things about it. My mom and sister worship the ground it was created on.

I didn't mind the movie. I will admite, I am a softy and when emotional things happen and the music is just right I will cry. I shed a tear, much to my frustration. After the movie I felt I just saw child of The Notebook and Forest Gump. I am slightly frustrated at how some of the story panned out and flowed. The strength of acters carried the movie.

Overall I give the movie a B rating.

Quick Paige Stats

Paige had her six-month appointment last Wednesday. Here are her stats:

Length: 26 1/2 in.
Weight: 17 lbs. 1 oz.
Head Circumference: 17 in.

The doctor said she looks great! We are going to start feeding her veggies next week. Weaning her has been a challenge, but the doc said to just keep trying different nipples...bottle nipples, not boob nipples. (Awkward.) And either she doesn't like the infant cereal or the feel of the spoon...or both. It's been a harder transition compared to Micah, but we'll get there. Speaking of Micah...

He's been doing pretty well with potty training. Sometimes he doesn't want to use the potty, and sometimes he will. At Church yesterday, he told me he needed to go, so I took him to the bathroom, and he went! He is making some progress, it seems.
