Benson loves having visitors. There is definitely a lot less frustration happening when we have lots of friends to entertain us. Today was full of visitors. This morning my friend, Marisa, brought over her 3 kids to come see our new place and play for a while. We also invited Kelsey and Ella from upstairs to come visit. It was awesome to just relax and have many other entertainers for Benson. He has not always done well with people, especially having 4 other kids over, but he is getting so much better and definitely had tons of fun. He even finally did a full somersault. He has been trying for about a month now, but he always falls over to the side. Today, with friends to show off for :), he got all the way over. It was pretty awesome. Only bad thing about having visitors was the teeth marks he left on poor Ella's arms. We are still working on that.
These are the stairs leading to and from our new basement apartment. I do not love them, mostly for safety reasons, but Benson does.
Me holding the phone while Benson "talks" to daddy. This is pretty typical as he is just too busy to take the time to hold the phone himself.
The weather has been turning into fall and we are loving the fallen leaves. He also loves splashing in puddles. Tonight he got to hang out with his Tita DJ while mommy and daddy got to go on a date. He had lots of fun.
He has found his pockets
He LOVES jumping on the bed until it turns into him smashing into the wall. This was tonight before we went out. These pictures reminded me of this post from two years ago. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the post and check out the last 2 pictures on the post, you will see why. I remember vividly watching Beau jumping on that bed and how much fun it was and just thinking "this is why we are going home." and here we are with our own little boy, jumping on the bed.
Life is good
