(Lincoln is such a good helper...here he is trying to find whatever piece of dirt/mud/lint that Bennett has eaten. Repeat every 10 minutes.)
Brothers in the field.
He says a few words:
Mama, Dada, Ba (ball), Duh (duck), Dah (dog).
He has imitated a few others:
ahduh (all done), gah (bye?), ***(something unintelligible that was clearly meant to be grandma and grandpa)
dog, all done, more, wave bye
He also shakes his head for no and will point to things.
He loves to play "Where'd Bennett go?" When we say it, he covers his face with his hands until we say "There he is!" and he peeks out. So much fun! He also initiates the game by covering his face with his shirt or a cloth when changing his diaper. Awesome.
B also loves to poke people in the face, tackle Lincoln, make sounds with his tongue, and be outside (all the time!). And make jokes:
His favorite toys are balls (he can already throw it a good distance!), a book about babies, the plasma car, and shoes (he likes to try and put them on our feet, or his own).
He likes to get in and out of things (boxes, the bathtub) over and over again...and he also likes to put items into boxes or cups or bowls and then take them out (over and over again). Speaking of bathtubs...Bennett has always loved to take a bath, but he is now currently in a phase of hating a bath. Lincoln went through something similar and it only lasted a few weeks. Strange.
11 months old. Wow, that went fast!
(Mr. B will be ONE in 2.5 weeks. Writing it down apparently does NOT make it more real...)
