My mom took Ben out to the backyard on Monday and he found himself a new buddy - a pink coneflower. From what Grammie said and as you can see in the pictures, Ben was quite attached to this flower. Once they came inside, he made his way to the bathroom, said his goodbyes and threw the flower in the toilet!! Love my boy!

You can see the new war wound on the cheek.

Ben was all giggles while eating his snack of apples, cheese, and squash.... I was only slightly tickling his toes :) At the very end you can see his version of a kiss, a big wide open mouth. That kiss will come out every now and then. Who doesn't love a kiss from an open mouth full of toofers!! He is our silly string bean!

Ben is now officially, 100%, a walker! I know before I said he was walking, but after 1 week it has gone from a few steps to Mr. Independent Walker. After 3 months of crawling, he has finally made the jump to standing up and going. And he is going, going and going. Tonight he was even attempting to try out some running....that was ending in a face plant into our new plush CLEAN carpet :) It is strange to see him coming around the corner and there pops in our little man walking! What's even better, is he looks like a drunk man when working on his walking skills. Also he likes to clinch his right hand into a fist and hold it up, sometimes even shrugging his shoulders when walking. My lil stinkers smart ways of helping his balance :)
No real words from him yet... he did bring back his "little girl" most high pitch scream tonight. I was out cooking chicken on the grill, the back door was shut and I STILL heard it. He wanted more cereal, he was just letting John now.
