Three more and it will be one year since the little one joined us!
This last month he has taken off - literally. Although he is still doing his military crawl/drag thing, he does not hold back on going places. Once he gets to wherever he is going, he stands up in a split second. He likes to stand - wherever it is. In the crib, next to the changing table, by your leg, on his jumperoo, wherever.
He has gotten so good at eating with his little fingers, we are constantly trying out new textures - he had toast and butter over Christmas - earlier this week he had peas and last night he had STEAK!
Diaper changing has become a little bit of a production. He has started hollering whenever it is time to change the diaper - so we have to call down one of the stuffed animals that live in the balloons over the changing table to come hang out with him. Once diaper changing is over, the little animal goes back to his balloon and Benjamin says "tau tau" - which translated into Spanish means "chau chau" - which translated into English means "bye bye"
He dances to any kind of music - he rocks back and forth! And because he hasn't figured out clapping just yet, he just flings his arms in the air in every kind of direction.
He loves drinking his morning "te te" - which translated into Spanish means "milk" - which transltated into English means "bottle" with "Dada" every day. And he calls for "Mama" only when he is in despair - like he's over whatever activity he is doing, or he is getting his diaper changed in public.
With the cold weather we have discovered that he can't wear fleece... so there went those cute Christmas pajamas and along with the the fleece vests that are so cozy. We are sticking strictly to cotton, otherwise his cheeks turn red and get chapped when the fleece rubs on them.
