Being Ben

Well, how do you eat your tortilla? Ben usually likes his rolled up with peanut butter on it. However, today, he decided he wanted to "Have! Have! Have!" it and to take bites of it as he slid it to the edge of his little table.
"Hi there Baby Bear!"
(A trip down the slide at "The Bear Park" always includes waving at, and chatting with, "Baby Bear".)

"BEEP! BEEP!" There is a sale on "Stradebies" on isle 9, so move it!
(Gerber's freeze-dried strawberries and bananas rock Ben's little snack world right now.)
Although he denies it, I am pretty sure this happened on Daddy's watch. Chalk boundaries are a tricky thing to teach. Crayon rules makes sense; "Only On The Paper"... got it. Chalk, on the other hand, can be used on the sidewalk, on the green side of the easel, and on paper. It seems to go with so many surfaces. It's tricky, and so is our little artist.

This is Ben's first rainbow. This occurred during a very brief few minutes between rain and more rain the other day. We all ran out onto the back porch to see it. Ben was so impressed! We told him what it was called and he said, "Oh it's a so pretty rainbow!".  He doesn't understand where it went and why it is gone. He really wants to see "anodder ramebow".

  1. I love it! I think I am going to revert to Ben's way of eating a tortilla! With gusto!
