This last month Benjamin hit one of many milestones - he got his first pair of shoes! So far so good...
This little guy continues to steal our hearts every single day. He is into everything! He gets up at the speed of light and starts taking little steps. He likes to cross his ankles whenever possible - mainly while he is sitting at his booster chair eating.
He points at everything and says something that sounds like "this" sometimes it sounds like "that".
He loves to give hugs! He gives us hugs, he gives his teachers at school hugs, he even gives his stuffed animals - and Pellet - hugs.
He is well into 12 month clothing - not because of his height but because of his belly! Unless he is wearing sweatpants, we always have to roll the cuffs of his pants - Norm says this was the story of his life too. Life father, like son.
He is a little eating machine! Unless it comes to carrots and banana - still no luck with the banana. But he will eat everything else: quinoa, beets, lentils, steak, chicken, yucca, potatoes, eggs, yogurt, blueberries, broccoli, avocado. For a while cheese was his favorite until we introduced pastina! He absolutely loves his pasta with butter. I mean, who doesn't?
He drinks water from his sippy cup and turns into a fountain when he is done... water starts coming out of his mouth spewing out and goes everywhere.
Finally he is becoming more consistent in saying bye - it usually takes him saying bye several times for him to start waving.
We survived a road trip to Tampa to visit Grandaddy Ray and Nana BJ. Benjamin managed to battle pink eye while on vacation (and kicked pink eye's butt!).
He is a happy baby who likes to eat socks...
