Ben's new "word"

Ben was eating dinner tonight & decided that "mmm mmm!" was his new word! The video also shows him saying "dada" and using his version of the "more" sign (clapping).

Ben's 1st Birthday

We had a small party yesterday for Ben's first birthday. I made Ben a vanilla cupcake with Smurf-blue icing (I'm still getting the hang of gel icing colors!), and he loved it. He methodically removed all of the icing first. We then had to show him how to smash the cupcake itself, and he chowed down on the entire thing!


After running errands last weekend, I took Ben outside for a few minutes while Dave shoveled the pile the plow had left at the end of our driveway. For some reason, Ben found this absolutely hilarious!
