Ben these days
Our little guy is getting so, so BIG. What's going on here, I feel like he went to bed the other day a tiny baby and now he's this crazy active toddler who can't stop climbing me. Guess I really need to get on the college fund.
Ben is interested in EVERYTHING right now. If he sees it, he wants to touch it, and keep it, and heaven help you if you take it from him. I know, this is a bad habit and I assure you I don't intend on having him be a spoiled brat...so we're working on it. But the TEARS! This kid cries the biggest cartoon-ish tears I've ever seen.
He also finds everything pretty hilarious. Now that he has a few teeth, he's always sort of experimenting with his smile, which always looks super sweet but also just a tiny bit cheeky. And his laugh. It kills me to listen to him laugh just to hear himself do it.
Still no full words yet. Not sure if that's weird (I make a habit of NOT paying attention to milestones...unless I'm worried) but there's a lot of babble, so I think it's coming soon. I'm obviously desperate for it to me "Mommy" or better yet "Oh Mom, I just love you more than anything and you're so very pretty" but it will probably end up being something like "sock". We'll see.
Sleep is still the same old...no naps, but he's doing ok at night. Actually, just the other night he slept from 11:00 pm until 7:30 am straight. I woke up wishing Billy hadn't already left for work so I could high five someone.
But, in a nutshell, these days with Ben are so great. He seems really happy, and healthy, and I'm starting to really see his personality come through.
Love this little guy more each day. Cheeky grin and all.
