14 Months

Big Ben is 14 months old today.


A toddler by definition, but still a baby to me.  He doesn't talk much, and he doesn't walk much either, so I'm calling him a baby for a bit longer at least:)

Ben.  Busy busy busy.  Doesn't sit still for a minute.  Always on the move and into something.

Walking: eh.  Ish.  He can walk.  He'll walk halfway across a room, then drop down and scoot.  I think he's just not confident on his feet yet.  Surprisingly, he drops down when he feels unsteady instead of going full steam ahead.  He can stand alone, stand up without pulling up on anything, climb, etc.  He's definitely a mobile guy.

Talking: he has quite a few words but he doesn't necessarily use them consistently. They come and go.  He'll say one for a while, then not use it anymore.  Words in his hat include:
uh oh
thank you

He loves to play peek-a-boo.  Loves to bounce.  Loves to dance.  Good sleeper.  A lot less shy than his sister was at this age.  He will usually go to anyone, especially if they bribe him with food).  Speaking of:

Eating: he loves food.  I think he is cutting more molars and this week has been very unusual in that he hasn't eaten as much.  Normally, he is a very hearty and not too picky eater.

He is our sweet, fun-loving, rambunctious, busy little guy.
