12 Facts for 12 Months!
And the grand finally!!!
1- Ben is now I am thrilled to say a GREAT sleeper! We put him in his bed at 7:30 and he wakes up at 7:30 on the other side of the clock! He also naps 2-3 hours every afternoon...it was a long time getting here!
2- Ben has temper tantrums. About 15-20 times a day his world ends. Every time I change his diaper, take him in the house, make him sit in a highchair or end a book in fact it crashes down. Ben would be most happy if he could spend his whole day naked in the backyard...mommy encroaches on his style!
3- He ADORES his grandparents, all of them!
4- He knows when Daddy is suppose to come home. At 5:30 he starts looking towards the door.
5- He will finally hold his own bottle. He always wanted me to do it for him.
6- He still loves apples most of all, although grapes are a close second. If I peel and core one he will eat the whole thing. If I dare cut it in pieces though he will throw it at me.
7- His loves to get into my plastic bag/ cling wrap drawer and take all the sandwich bags out of the box, then puts one on each hand and crawls around with them on his hands.
8- He loves bathtime, but will not sit down!
9-He gives sweet little kisses where he parts his lips and gently puts them on you and smooches his lips around on your cheek until you are appropriately slobbery.
10-When he gives hugs he ends them with 2 pats on the back, as I imagine he is used to getting.
11- He gets very upset when he feels he is being pressured to walk, in his own time he will and not a minute sooner!
12- He is pointing at everything and wants to know the name for everything he touches.
Whew! There is a lot to tell about such a little person! I can't wait to see what he gets up to in the next year!
