Benjamin is fourteen months old today!
Here’s a cute video of him toddling around recently. (He loves to wear the bells on his ankles. Whenever he finds them, he belts out his insistent “eeeee!” whine until I help strap them on.)
Benjamin has gotten two new teeth this month, bringing his total up to 10. Today I felt two more breaking through his gums, which may explain some of his recent “love” biting.
He’s putting those teeth to good use, as well as his newest (and oft-used) word, “huh-hoh.” Like when he throws his entire dinner of rice and veggies on the floor. for example.
I’m longing for long walks and visits to the playground, but Benjamin has been perfectly content playing with our pots…
emptying any filled containers he can get his hands on…
and playing hide-and-seek with his big sister.
I made an edible finger paint for Benjamin to play with the other day, but he didn’t really enjoy using it. (Translation: he started to cry once his hands were messy and he realized he was strapped into his highchair.)
He did, however, start scribbling on paper yesterday with a few crayons. He didn’t even try to eat them this time!
Here is his finished picture.
It’s hard to tell in these photos, but Benjamin’s hair is really starting to come in on the back. Stay tuned for baby mullet pictures!
