M&D caught me getting ready for my 1st Halloween.  Check out my spooky ghost covered outfit, and the pumpkins Mommy grew this year!

And don’t I look just like this guy?

And, of course I just had to taste Mommy’s pumpkin!

(The outside doesn’t taste so good…)

Big Ben, Little Ben

October 29th, 2008. (4 months, 4 weeks old.) by ben

Big Ben tells Londeners the time, any time of the day or night.

I tell Mommy & Daddy when it is 3am, and 5am, and other times when I’m hungry or tired!

Big Ben has two hands.  So do I!

Big Ben has a round face.  So do I!

Big Ben is famous and very popular with people around the world.  I’m famous and popular with the people within my world!

Look – can you see the similarity?

Rollin’ over

October 23rd, 2008. (4 months, 3 weeks old.) by ben

Well, the day finally came.  I wonder what M&D thought when they found me in my crib this morning – facing the wrong way and on my tummy!?

I acted like nothing had happened, but they got all excited for some reason.

Later that day, M&D got a command performance out of me so that y’all could watch!

Thank you…. thank you very much.

Thanks to cousin Luke for passing on his super cool (warm, that is!) Ugg boots!  Now that the weather is getting cooler (again!), M&D have been putting me in these to go for walks.  They’re still a bit big, but they’re very cozy!  Of course, I try my best to kick my way out of them just to give M&D something to do while they’re pushing the stroller.

Slow Speed Chase

Just hold still there, Atlas, and I’m gonna catch you!

Ok, now you’re just mocking me….

Ben-O’s Paradox

October 19th, 2008. (4 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

I’m running as fast as I can (in my Jumperoo), but I’m never getting to the cat!  Can somebody explain this to me?  Is this a paradox?

(Ed. Note: Apologies to Xeno…)

Winston Churchill

October 18th, 2008. (4 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

Some people think I look like Winston Churchill.  But then they say that all babies look like Mr. Churchill.  But if that is true, isn’t that just a nice way of saying that Winston Churchill looked like a baby?

I think I need some sort of hat to really complete the impersonation.

New Jumper!

October 17th, 2008. (4 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

The new jumper is really great, but I haven’t yet figured out how… to …. turn…. a…. round….  I have to keep an eye on those Mommy and Daddy people after all.

There we go.  Oh, wait… I guess it wasn’t me that turned around was it?  On a different topic…  Ummmm… what’s this shiny thing here?

The Usual Suspects

October 15th, 2008. (4 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

My editor convinced me to go with ‘The Usual Suspects’ for the title of this post, but I’m not so sure I understand why that’s funny.  All I know is I was having fun today hanging out with my super-duper friendly buddies who mysteriously ALL decided to join me in my pack-n-play today.  Yeee ha!

Cooking up something special

October 14th, 2008. (4 months, 1 week old.) by ben

Mommy is starting to introduce me to the fundamentals of cooking with my very own spoon, and loaner 1/4 cup measure.  So far, cooking is really fun!  I’m told that eating what you cook is even better, but I guess I’m not old enough for that yet.

Of course, the student can always play the part of teacher as well.  Here, I’m adding that “special something”. Yummmm…
