Story Time

February 28th, 2009. (8 months, 3 weeks old.) by ben

Daddy & I read stories every night before bed.  I always look forward to story time, but I don’t always look forward to going to bed afterward!


I’m very good at turning the pages now when Daddy stops reading.  Pretty smart, eh?

Washing Machine Inspector

February 26th, 2009. (8 months, 3 weeks old.) by ben

Now that I’m getting around more (still with M&D’s help), I can finally start inspecting this place.

Today, I decided to make sure that that washing machine was in tip-top shape.  And as you can see, I’m the perfect size for the job.

Looks good to me!

(Ed. Note: Looks like Ben in those overalls might even be dressed as the repair man should the inspection fail!)

Pulling Up

February 24th, 2009. (8 months, 3 weeks old.) by ben

Daddy managed to catch me pulling myself up on the toy basket.  He and Mommy got really excited for some reason.  Anyway, M&D wanted me to share this video with you all, even though it doesn’t actually show me pulling myself up.

Petriches Everywhere!

February 22nd, 2009. (8 months, 3 weeks old.) by ben

Great Aunts Danee and Carole, and Great Uncles Tom and John (boy, is that a mouthful!) came to visit me (& M&D, so I’m told).  We had a nice visit and dinner!

Come back soon!

I present: “The Amazing Levitating Puff Trick”

Watch as I keep this tasty morsel suspended in front of my mouth, with no hands in sight, and nothing up my sleeves!  Behold!  And be Amazed!

Can you just hear me saying, “Ta Daaaaaa!!”

This trick was followed shortly by the “Disappearing Puff Trick”, but you’ve probably seen that one already…

Ahhh. That new car seat smell.

February 17th, 2009. (8 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

There’s nothing like that new car seat smell!  I finally outgrew my first carseat, so Daddy had to install the new one.  This baby is deluxe – with soft velour, faux suede trim, and extra side impact head protection – and lots of room to grow!

I can’t wait until I’m a year old so I can face forward and see where we’re going!

Swing Mechanic

February 16th, 2009. (8 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

Just checking things out under this here swing… now that I can crawl under it all by my myself…

It looks like it’s still in good working order.

Why I don’t like peas

February 13th, 2009. (8 months, 1 week old.) by ben

It is a little known fact that peas never die. Probably because they’re related to space aliens – green space aliens. Because of this, you never can be sure when they’re going to attack. I submit as Exhibit A this photograph as evidence of such an attack.

That’s why I don’t like peas.


February 10th, 2009. (8 months, 1 week old.) by ben

Boy did I have a good time today!  Not only was Daddy home from work today, but Mommy did a great job of capturing my latest and greatest for the ages.  World, here I come!

Thomasson Visit

February 10th, 2009. (8 months, 1 week old.) by ben

I had a great time playing with June (or is it the other way around?).

No, I definitely think I got the better end of the deal.  June walked me all over the house!

And later, she helped read me stories when it was time for bed.  What a great time!
