Not the best lighting for this picture.. But Ben never does this.. He woke up from his nap and Tracie put him on Pa Pa Dee's lap.. This is a Kodak moment.. He won't sit on Dave's lap ever so this is a great moment.

He's telling me "This is good lunch GranAnnie".. His appetite has increased last couple of weeks. My sister, Lynn says he is having a growth spurt..~! HE loves broccoli , corn and green beans.. He always says "Put lots of butter on them"..Better than salt...he has high blood pressure and we try and cut down on salt.. He has had this since birth.. He takes high blood pressure medicine twice a day. Dr's are thinking he will grow taller and the vessel entering his kidneys or leaving his kidneys will straighten and da ta there goes the problem.. They think this vessel has a little bend to it..







I love sweet peas.. They grow just about anywhere and they are so perky looking..


Kelly girl is still here and yesterday we went to Tracie's house.. her and Ben were gone.. So we went to my friends house. We played some card games with Holly and her daughter Caryn. We learned some new games and had a lot of fun.. Had lunch with them and then it was time to go get Ben at Donna's house.. (it's a daycare but Ben says "she doesn't have a daycare she has a house"...:) always makes me smile.. We went back to Holly's house and went swimming.. He loves to swim with his new swimmers vest.. He jumps off the ladder into the pool and Ker-Splash~~! lots of laughing and do it again.. We left and came to my house and had supper.. Tracie had clinic with her Massage School so we went to her house.. Ben and Kelly jumping on the big trampoline.. Oh he jumps so high and Kelly is teaching him how to do different things.. He calls her Emily, which is Kelly's sister's name.. You can imagine she doesn't like that.. So I told Ben her real name is Kelly Belly ,,,he thought that was funny so now he calls her that. We ended our evening by watching a DVD of the Care Bears.. called Joke-a lot land.. Ben just laughs and laughs when he watches this DVD.. We got three DVD's from the Marion library. He is going to be sad to see this one go back to the library.. but we can always get it again.

This morning which is Thursday, Kelly is just getting up and it's 10 a.m. she says Ben wears her out.. I told her she is only 12 and it's a good thing Ben gets her off the couch and busy.

She loves to watch those stupid shows that are on Disney Channel. Turns ones brain to mush.

She is having her favorite breakfast this morning. Spaghetti with sauce.. I got up this morning and made the sauce for her.. Pa Pa Dee Dee is going to take her outside for a big tractor ride this morning.. She wants to learn how to drive it herself.. so that will be a fun thing for her to do.

Have a Blessed Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

I never knew small children could have high blood pressure. I do hope he grows out of it...sooner than later. Love the picture of him with Grandpa. :)

Great pics of Bennie. Glad he's keeping Kelly on her toes. I'm sure she will love the tractor lesson. Have fun!

What a great picture that I know will become a treasure!!

I also never knew young children could have HBP. He has so much life in front of him, and I hope it's something he grows out of too!
