Check out my upcoming spread.  Sweeeeet!

Box Sitting

December 2nd, 2009. (18 months old.) by ben

One thing I’ve learned while stalking Atlas is that he likes to sit in boxes – he can often be found snoozing in them.  So I figured I’d try it out and see what it was all about.  It’s never a bad idea to learn from a pro!


Here’s Atlas, demonstrating his technique.


Every… last… Cheerio…

Me and my spoon – we’re gonna get you!  Even if it takes all morning!


(Ed. Note: Ben is becoming quite proficient at plucking Cheerios from milk with his spoon!)

Flossing Time

October 31st, 2009. (16 months, 4 weeks old.) by ben

Now that I have a bunch of teeth, M&D say I have to learn to take care of them.  Apparently, part of the routine is munching on a piece of flavored string before bed.


Count me in!

(Ed. Note: And just in time for Halloween, too!)

Be right back…

Time to even up the score, kitty.

Now I’m upgrading from the dustbuster to the real mains powered floor cleaning machine!

This patch of floor is now the cleanest in the whole house!

(Ed. Note: Next on the list to teach Ben is how to cover more then just 3 square feet with the vacuum!)

I think I’m a shoe in for a job on a nice tropical island!

USS Rubbermaid

September 18th, 2009. (15 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

Check out my aircraft carrier!  It has a complement of 1 airplane and 1 helicopter and is currently stationed just south of the kitchen table.  Mommy has dubbed it the “USS Rubbermaid”  All I know is that it is lots of fun!



Goggle Me

July 14th, 2009. (13 months, 1 week old.) by ben

I’ve always heard that people Goggle themselves to find out how popular they are.


Well, I’m not sure how to tell.  And it’s hard to see through these goggles.  Did it work?  Do I look popular?


How about now?

What?  What’s that you say?  Google?

M&D keep the best stuff in drawers.  The problem is that I’m just…not…tall…enough to reach in and get all that good stuff out.


To address this issue, I’m growing taller and learning to use my tippy toes.   This works, but isn’t moving the process along as fast as I would like.  So I’m also experimenting with wishful thinking, telekinesis, and outright crying, which can be quicker, but has met with mixed results so far.
