Why yes, Bennett is in fact only 10 months old.
I was out on a walk today with both boys in our super amazing double seater wagon. We were walking a looped path and passed another mama walking her baby a couple times. The third time, she stopped her stroller and paused. We said hello, and then she said..."Are they twins?"
Yes. I was the only other person standing there (I double checked).
After stifling the urge to laugh until I cried, I managed to answer her. "Nope! hahaha! This one is THREE, and this one is 10 months. Hahaha! Definitely not twins!"
She looked at me, shocked, and said, "Wow! Only 10 months! He is sooooo big!"
I then learned her baby was only a month old, so I could understand why she thought Bennett looked big...but to think he was Lincoln's twin still blows my mind.
Look at this guy! That's a baby if I've ever seen one!
Mr. B (or B, more often these days) has been quite vocal lately. He very clearly uses the words "mama," "dada," "hi," and "nana (banana)." He constantly makes sounds with his tongue, growls, or yells. He will imitate us (including Lincoln) with vowel sounds, especially "ah!" He has also tried to imitate "dog" and "ball." Lincoln looooooooves trying to get Bennett to talk or sign. He is constantly telling us to "Tell Bennett say mooooore! Tell Bennett say NANA!" Awesome.
Bennett will also sometimes imitate the signs for dog, more, and all done.
There have been a few other foods Mr. B has been dining on lately--yogurt, smoothies, meatballs, whole wheat bread, jelly sandwiches, strawberries (LOVES them), noodles with ghee, peas, cottage cheese (eh, not a big fan), and feta cheese (in addition to our already established menu).
Bennett is so close to being a walker. He has taken up to 5 steps at a time. We think he is just so confident with his crawling (he's been crawling for 6 months already! Isn't that insane??), that he isn't willing to foray fully into walking.
Happy 10 months, Mr. B! Love you!
