Electronics Project

February 28th, 2010. (20 months, 3 weeks old.) by ben

For my first electronics project, I’m learning how to charge up the baby toddler monitor.


Feel the power!

Lately I’ve been using my Crayolas to express my two dimensional, colorful self.


If I’m really lucky, I get to sit up high a the bar while I color.

I got the keys and I’m gonna get this door open!


Oops!  Busted!

(Ed. Note: Good luck unlocking the hinge, Ben!)

After Dinner Reading

February 18th, 2010. (20 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

Ho Hum.  Just another day keeping up with politics.  As if I didn’t have enough to do already!


What’s this? Still no health care reform!?


Visit from Ma and Pa

February 15th, 2010. (20 months, 2 weeks old.) by ben

Ma and Pa came up to visit me this weekend.

I got to read together with Pa, though this was a book that I had not seen before.


I got to show Grandma how to juice oranges, since I already learned how.


I think she was giving me a big kiss ’cause she was so grateful to know how to make orange juice.

I think the most fun I had was driving Pa’s truck!


Wooo hooo!  Ma and Pa are welcome anytime.  (Make sure you bring your truck when you visit!)

Building a Train

February 10th, 2010. (20 months, 1 week old.) by ben

Lately I have been enjoying putting my Duplo train cars together, and then stacking on top of them.

I did this one all by myself.  OK, maybe Daddy helped me just a little with putting my fireman driver on the tall stack.


And Froggy and Doggy are always there to lend moral support!

Big Ouchies

February 6th, 2010. (20 months old.) by ben

Today I had my first visit to the hospital emergency room.  I got this cool bracelet souvenir!


I got a case of “Nursemaid’s elbow” when I tried to pick up a dirty candy wrapper in the street, but Daddy wouldn’t let go of my hand.  It was really ouchie, and it took M&D a while to figure out what was wrong because I couldn’t sign “ouchie” (Ed. Note: the ouchie sign takes two hands).  All is well now, as Dr. Mark fixed me right up.  He must have read the Wikipedia entry, because this is just what he did to fix my ouchie elbow.

Too bad M&D didn’t buy the extended warranty when they brought me home from the hospital, or this might have been a lot less expensive.  At least Dr. Mark at the ER was kind enough to show M&D how to fix my arm if it happens again.

My favorite part of the whole visit was getting to see an ambulance up close!  There was one parked outside the ER as we were leaving, and the driver was really friendly!
