These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

At 10 1/2 months, Ben has lots of favorites, but here are a few at the top of the list:

1. His walker. He loves to push this thing around. He also really loves to play with the toy on the front. The phone and the door that open and closes are the top items.

2. Dee, of course!!! He loves his doggy. Here Dee is "hiding" her treat in Ben's new chair. Hmm, clever Dee; I'm sure no one will notice it there.

3. "Eating" faces. Here he is just after putting his mouth over my nose. Oh, the drool!

4. Riding around on Dad's shoulders. He really likes being carried in general, but up on Dad's shoulders is best.
5. Riding on his new firetruck. He loves to be pushed around. If you stop, he rocks back and forth trying to make it go.

6. This little farm toy. He loves to open and close things and put things inside things, so this toy does double-duty. He dumps all kinds of things inside, opens and closes it, then takes them all out and starts again.

7. Dropping things. Here he is dropping a toy from the side of the chair. He also really loves to drop/throw his sippy cup from his highchair.

8. Socks and laundry. So here we've combined his two loves, as he "helps" me put away the socks. Notice he is wearing only one sock, as he took off the other and was carrying it around all afternoon.


  1. Man, that's a cute kid! I can't wait to get him and Lily together again. As you might have seen on her blog, she'd be happy to push him around for a while on his truck.

  2. It will be fun to see him and Lily together. I see hours of entertainment if she is happy to push him around!

  3. Cute post! Connor also has that same fire truck (and the outfit Ben is wearing in the photo). Our lives are so similar. :)

  4. Ben's only problem will be if Lily insists on getting her turn of riding while Ben pushes as Connor could barely do it at his age!
