October 5, 2013

Today Benson is 21 months old.  He is becoming a little boy.  We turned his carseat around today even though I really would have preferred to keep him rear facing for longer, but our mirror in the back broke.  I couldn't see him and if anyone knows me, they know I cannot handle not being able to see him.  I have anxiety about his safety (this also the reason I LOVE our video monitor).  We also got his haircut today.  He looks SO grown up!

 Ben got a bit sick in the middle of work today so he was actually home during the day and Benson got to spend some time with him.  This is such a rarity lately, so Benson LOVES any time he can spend with his daddy. (Ben is working full time, student teaching full time and taking two classes at UVU.  He leaves the house at 6:30 AM and gets home at about 10 PM.  Saturdays he leaves about 8 am and gets home around 8 pm.  It is rough and we miss him, but are so grateful for his hard work)

These are a few of the hilarious facial expressions he makes.  This kid has quite the personality! 

Um, when did my baby become a little boy?

We go play at the park almost every day.  Benson is starting to love the swing, which is totally new.  He used to want to get off after just a few minutes, now he could stay on there for an hour with no problem.   He also loves slides, climbing up them and sliding down them.  His only problem with the park is other kids.  He is terrified of children he doesn't know.  As soon as someone walks anywhere in his direction he screams and runs towards me, even if he is at the top of the slide.  It's a bit scary for me since he would jump off that top of a slide rather than be confronted with a scary child :)

Love this boy!
