Arizona Update:FOUR Months Old!!

I've been trying to get a picture of Christopher smiling because he smiles SO big that dimples just pop right out, but he gets mesmerized by the camera and won't look into it when he smiles. Oh well.

Here are a few of my attempts at trying to get a good picture of Christopher smiling.

See? Just too cute for the camera! These pictures were taken with the assistance of others trying to distract him, too! I'm in big trouble too because he likes my phone now because I keep taking pictures of him. :p

Well, we're doing the "it gets worse before it gets better" thing. Ben is starting to feel the effects of his treatment...even if he won't admit it. A wife can tell. But we have a few friends here that try to help us out and make life a bit easier if they can. Let me introduce you!

This is Jana. She was our very first real friend here at The Center. She is SO sweet and funny and even though she's got her own issues, she does her best to help us out and make us feel better when we have bad days. She gives good hugs too and won't believe you if you tell her everything is "ok". She's also real good at putting Christopher to sleep for me. Love her!!

This is Jennifer (one of like 5!) She is just the sweetest woman in concierge at The Center. She also has the best parents...they are so kind and my personal crying friend! Oh and Christopher just can't get enough of her!

This Doe...yeah, that's her real name. cool huh! She is SO funny and makes a mean chocolate, peanut butter shake at The Center. Actually, she makes the perfect smoothy...whatever you want! She's great!

This is Marcia. Marcia, Marcia Marcia! She works at The Hilton where we stay. She has been battling colon cancer and Ben's cancer buddy. Even though her life is totally crazy (no, really!) she keeps trying to do everything she can to make our stay in Arizona the best it can be. I told you she works at the hotel, but this picture is of her at The Center! She came to help take care of Christopher and hang out with me...on her day off! Totally SWEET!
