I’m in - push me!

Ben loves to get into his cart, tuck in his legs, and wait for someone to come push him! He’ll go back and forth a few times, and then get out and start over. He’s not going to fit in there much longer though!


An apple a day…
Every night while I’m making dinner, Ben rushes over to the fruit drawer when the refrigerator gets opened. He used to just pull out the drawer and then close it again. Until he found apples. One night, I turned around after hearing that crunch that only biting into an apple can make. Sure enough, Ben was chowing on an apple from the drawer! He’s been doing it all the time now. He never really gets very far into it before he decides he’s had enough, but at least he’s eating a solid!


Ben had pancakes for the first time last night and liked them so much that he started bawling when we tried to stop him from cramming the whole thing in his mouth at once (or as soon as he would finish one pancake and realize another wasn’t immediately ready to eat).

Fun on the couch. (He really enjoys climbing up there and waiting for me to “get” him.)


More!

Ben has mastered the sign for more, but he doesn’t always sign it at an appropriate time! Sometime more means all done to him. :)

Post Birthday Thoughts

I have all these new toys, but this bag of wrapping paper is my favorite.
